Everyone has guns.
No one has guns.

The answer is a.

I'll tell you why.
What is this supposed to mean? You say yourself that more people will die if everyone has guns. That's my side of the argument.

To prevent that, we implement a little something called gun control.

What if the criminal decides to shoot someone in their sleep, when they can't heroically defend themselves with a gun? Or maybe they'll pick on the handicapped, the ones with poor aim, or on children. Would you rather that we give our children guns in the interest of personal security?
