Is gun control justified?

HashtagWar

I would like to establish some rules. First, if you accept, please participate. Second, I would like someone who is full-force supporting gun control. Last, please try to use good grammar and sound intelligent in your arguments. Gun control laws are pretty strict currently. You have to have a license and you can't have a criminal record. These are very valid requirements for obtaining a gun. Personally, I would like to see something along the lines of any history of suicidal or homicidal psy...

Doctor assisted suicide

artemis111
thebestdebate

In our society, doctors get a position of great respect and responsibility. However, they are not obligated to make the same sort of hard choices that people with far less pay, respect and responsibility are asked to make. Even more, doctors are not confronted with the awful realities of people who have no quality of life and simply want to get out of their suffering. Don't misunderstand me--I believe that people who have nothing physically wrong with them should be given psychological help and...

swagfaty

My initial argument states that I do believe gay marriage should stay legalized. Homosexuality is not a choice, and it is not a sin. To restrict the right of marriage to someone is unlawful. I am open to any arguments....
