I believe people should have the right to bear firearms. Pro believes they should be banned. The rules of this debate are:
1: The BoP is shared.
2: I will waive the 1st round and Pro will waive the last round. They must signify this in the round. Violation is an automatic loss of the conduct point.
3: A forfeit is an automatic loss unless apologized for in the comments.
I am waiving this round because of the rules.
Since my opponent didn't publish an argument, I think I'll publish one.
Guns provide protection against criminals and the potential of a tyrannical government.
Guns also reduce homicide. Whenever an area bans guns, law abiding citizens turn in their guns but criminals still hang on to their guns. Can you imagine what happens if a criminal is armed and a law abiding citizen(LAC) isn't? The LAC gets robbed or shot or both. If they try to call the police, they are shot. DC placed huge restrictions on guns in 1976 and their homicide rate stayed constant at best and skyrocketed at worse (https://illinoisreview.typepad.com/.a/6a00d834515c5469e2015392131038970b-800wi). This means that gun control does nothing to stop homicide and may even increase homicide rates. When they repealed their tough gun laws, the homicide rate fell.
Guns are also useful in hunting, which can prevent some families from starving.
Big boy argument extended.
"The debate should be about arms for a right" It kindof is.
The debate should be about arms for a right. I think phaser blasters are more eco-friendly
I have tried to contact her about it, but she still hasn't responded.
Ah, that explains it then.
Debate Island is her 'home site' and she still mains there, this is like her 'side hoe debate site'. I have it the other way around.
No, but I saw her in some debates on this site awhile back and it looked like she had gone inactive and stopped responding to a lot of them. I figured she had gone back to DDO or something.
do you know her from tumblr or something?
Seems easy enough lol. Pro will have to argue that criminals won't be criminals.
When did YeshuaBought return from whatever void she fell into?
