there should be universal background checks on gun sales

dairygirl4u2c
SpartanHoplite

about forty percent of gun sales currently do not involve background checks. that means there's plenty of head way to be made here.true, some will just get guns illegally. but not ALL of them will. this is common sense. to say otherwise is like saying we shouldn't have crime laws cause some crime will occur. not everyone who is denied is a black hoodie who will stop at nothing to get a gun....

Will China rule the world

SamuelBenedict
krayracker

I personally think China will rule the world even though i'm not from china or a chinese. They have a very big number of armies and modern technologies. They spend billion dollars just for military each year. Plus, this country has a tremendous effect for the whole world. For example, china attacked and build islands in the south china sea, and seems nobody is brave enough to confront them. Just now, china was devaluating its yuan and a lot of asia pacific countries were immediately hit. So, i t...

Hi! Welcome to this debate. Only accept if you are serious about finishing. Comment if interested. This is a topic of quite a bit of dispute as to what exactly a "living wage" entails. To clarify, I will provide a definition.

There Are Good Logical/Scientific Arguments to Justify Abortion

sengejuri
atheistliberal

I am Con. Debate is closed, comment if you want to accept. The rules are simple - my opponent (Pro) will attempt to give logical or scientific evidence for why abortion is morally acceptable. I will attempt to refute such evidence. If Pro submits even a single piece of evidence that I cannot refute, they win. If not, I win. Pro agrees to begin by presenting their evidence in Round 1, and will only type "End of Debate" in Round 4 to equal out the entries for each side. Both sides agree to avo...

Should Europe continue to allow migrants from the Middle East and Africa?

ahjfcshfghb
prioritisingmorality

In recent years, especially this one, there have been hundreds of illegal immigrants crossing the Mediterranean to get to Europe. I don't have an issue with Europe accepting immigrants at all, but what I do have a problem with is that there are hundreds of thousands of these people, who have cost governments millions of dollars resettling them, block tunnels and railway stations eg. in the English Channel, and are the cause of much hatred and, in some cases violence. Even worse, this growing tre...

Should we abolish the draft?

srhelsel609
SnaxAttack

I respect and thank all servicemen and women that fight for us. But This debate is about should we have a draft or no in the USA. Should a government make someone kill or shot at someone, if that person doesn't want to? Should a government send citizens who don't even support a war to a possible death sentence. No matter if we are at a time of peace or war. Should a government be able to make decision like that without my consent or voice? I say no to all of these questions. My life is my life....

A one world government

WinchyMann
prioritisingmorality

So I was wondering about how the world would look if we were to have a one world government. The world would have just one government with complete control over all nations. This would obviously require so much hard work for it to ever come true but I believe that we could do it, if we joined together as one. There wouldn't need to be countries as we would have only one flag. We would all live together as one. We would be greater, richer and smarter. What do you people think?...
