The Right/Amendment (2nd) to bear arms should be REPEALED


This argument targeted is whether or not the 2nd Amendment, the individual's (civilian, not law officer) right to own & carry arms (guns), should be repealed. This target is NOT; the limitations on the type or arms that are/should be allowed/restricted, limitations on who should/not have that right, or limitations on where/when/how to carry, but the entire right as a whole, however these points may be used to supplement the target issue; repealing (or not) the 2nd Amendment entirely as it pertai...

More Gun Laws?


Guns are horrible, violent, and unpopular things that can easily get out of control. So, why aren't American politicians imposing more control on guns? To get this debate started, I will share some shocking, but true facts about guns. On average, 32 Americans are murdered with guns everyday. On average, 51 Americans kill themselves with guns and 45 Americans are shot and killed on accident, every day. The U.S. firearm homicide rate is 20 times higher than the combined rates of 22 count...

Point 1 Different Cultures It is merely impossible for the average American politician to put themselves in the shoes of a Iraqi or Iranian. They have beliefs and desires that we cannot understand because we grew up in a Western Civilization. Forcing democracy and our culture onto people we share nothing in c...

We Have A Right To Own Guns!


Do you believe in freedom and your rights as a citizen of the United States of America? The U.S. has 27 amendments that give the citizens certain rights. There is one amendment that is on the path to being taken away. The second amendment states that "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." There has been lots of discussion about this right. Do you think that the government should be playin...

Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal in the United States


I want to begin by saying how delighted I am to be debating Contradiction on this very important social issue. It's good to be able to argue with someone who is so philosophically inclined. For my part of the debate, I'll be arguing that same-sex marriage should be legal in the United States. Accordingly, in this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no legally tenable reasons to ban same-sex marriage. And secondly, there are good reasons to think th...
