Gun ownership: Individual Right or Collective Right?

Bored_Debater
Foucault

The question is, in the United States, is it an individual right to keep and bear arms or is it solely a right held by those that serve in the states' militias? Pro will argue that it is an individual right, con will argue that it is a collective right. Individual Right: Is a right held by individual people. Collective Right: Is a right held by group members, this case in the militia....

Abortion

rogue

1. It justifies irresponsibility of the consequences that can come from unprotected sex. 2. It can harm the mother with many complications, one of them is placenta praevia. 3. Sometimes makes the mother unable to have kids again. 4. The baby is alive, it is not just a group of cells as some abortion doctors describe it has brain waves, finger prints, can wake and sleep make fists, and feels touch. I am open to anyone in this challenge....

Should their be a national ban on gay marriage to outlaw it?

BrandonSiler2044

I am against a national ban on gy marriage. I believe it should be up to the states, after allit does say so in the constitution for any matter not specificly mentioned. If possible, I wish government would stay out of marriage. But I highly doubt that will ever happen. So I am for states rights. I dont personally support gay people, Im a Christian and believe homosexuality is a sin. But I do not feel that their practice should be banned....

God is real

XiaoFei98

Alright, I'd like to do this debate with someone. I'll try and be concise, and answer any other questions in the comments section. The debate says 5 rounds long, but in reality it is 4. This is for a) extra round if needed and b) so that the pro can make his argument first. The burden of proof is entirely on the affirmer. God - The Judeo Christian God with the qualities of: omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, transcendent, immanent, personal, anthropomorphic, etc. is - verb, from "to be"....

Iran has the right and should be allowed to produce nuclear weapons

Matthew_Wright
R00TiX

My first debate. A small topic to start off with and I hope to learn the ropes of a 'formal' debate. My position is that Iran has the right of a sovereign nation to develop nuclear weapons and should be allowed to. Con would argue that Iran should not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons for whatever reasons they argue. Round 1: acceptance Round 2: arguments Round 3: rebuttals Round 4: summaries...

Since I was unable to post in the last round of our debate, we will be doing this again. We will copy and paste our round 2 arguments so that we can get back to the same round 3 where the last debate ended.

Yahoo Answers is a good place to debate and learn more about politics

Crypto247
DanT

Ok I am starting this. Also if you don't know anything about yahoo answers polictics section don't debate. Yahoo Answers has a politics section on it. It is very popular. It is a good place to share your views without being attack. Yahoo Answers made me the conservative man I am today. It taught me how to argue, fight, and come on strong. Before yahoo I was a wimpy liberal but after I was a strong con. In my opinion many people could use a good month of it. I will give to for the con to start....
