Any gun other than pistols should not be sold to citizens.

First off, I must say that I am not American so I am not familiar with any statistics or laws you may have. I will be defending a point based on logic, rather than sources. It would probably be hard to source in such debate anyways. I have seen quite a lot of people defend the availability of larger weapons - I will argue that they serve no use if you are but a citizen. As for the second amendment in America particularly, I must say that it is ridiculous anyone would be willing to use that...

I believe the act of smoking should be banned. Round one is for acceptance only. I define smoking as the "inhale and exhale the smoke of tobacco or a drug." ...

Pro gay marriage

Gay rights should be legal because we live in a progressive society and saying that people who love their same sex shouldn't get married because that's not traditional, is extremely ignorant!...

I believe that the Nazis would have won the war if they had not invaded Russia. I ask that Con makes his arguments R1, then at R2 I will defend, and at R2 con will say, "Skip just as we planned", then I will argue at R3. Con defends R3....

Should schools be allowed to take non-educational Trips?

UNRegard
edibleshrapnel

I was very lucky to have 3 field trips my eighth grade year, but I still think I could've had more. I'm in High School now and I am in a band, and we had a difficult time having the band being able to go to SeaWorld. I've never been to Disneyland in my life. But I've been to Disneyworld. The District isn't even paying for the transportation, we've been forced to do that on our own. But that's besides the point. One of my trips I took in eight grade was going to see Iron Man 3. And tha...

Is abortion ok in some situations? Or is it totally wrong?

Cin
RoyalSon

I believe abortion is alright in certain situations. Say, if a woman got raped, then she is allowed to have an abortion. Or if the baby is going to be born with a fatal disease, or you know it only has such a period of time to live, why would you cause it pain? It's better to save his/her misery than to have to put them through that....

FrancesHill
sgr159

I am a woman and I oppose gender equality on the grounds male domination is required for a society to have net gender equality. The equal influence of men and women on society is desired. Men and women have an intrinsic forms of influence on society due to biological factors. Social constructs, such as relative degree of social equality, represent extrinsic forms of influence on society....

Euthanasia is unethical

justin.graves
Psychedelic

Round 1 is acceptance. Rules are as follows and basically the same for all my debates: 1. I have a Zero-Tolerance for harsh language. However, euphemisms, (Dang, darn, heck, frick) have acceptance at a minimum. Excessive use is inappropriate in a debate setting. 2. Any tangible information used to prove the truth of the matter asserted must at least one (1) reliable source. A short description of the approximate location in the source would be helpful as well. 3. Wikipedia is NOT a sour...
