Your thesis should be something like, "30,000 gun deaths a year is the price you pay for liberty. We live in a country of stupid and irresponsible people. If you want to restrict liberty to make that number go down then go ahead, if you don't, a lot of innocent people getting killed is the price to pay for that freedom."
I mean thats pretty much the crux of the argument. 5 paragraphs of filler and bullshit after that ought to make a decent paper.
