LogicalInjustice
DogInTheBox

This is my first debate, so i figured i would make it an interesting one. Several decades ago, we had a boom in technological advancement. Huge breakthroughs such as ARPANET, Artificial Intelligence, GPS, and many other technologies we used today were backed by these types of funding.

Conceal carry laws by private citizens

pittythefool

Conceal carry laws exacerbates cop violence particularly against black and minorities. By private citizen being allows to conceal their lethal firearms, cops are forced to assume that ANY ONE could be carrying a gun, be they man, women, adult or child. Therefor they are naturally inclined to shot first in order to protect their lives if they feel threatened in the slightest which does not take much because of their own prejudice and police training teaching them to value THEIR lives over citizen...

Freeman

First, there are no legally tenable reasons to ban same-sex marriage. And secondly, there are good reasons to think th...
