I will argue that guns should be allowed to be owned by the public at large. My opponent will take the position that guns should be banned from being owned by the public. Round one is acceptance only, round two is arguments only, and rounds three and four are for arguments and rebuttals. Good luck, opponent!...

Abortion should be illegal

I'd like to start off by saying I appreciate any time that anyone gives to this and also to clarify that I am arguing against abortions of any kind and for any reason except in the instance of danger to the mother. To be clear I am referring to abortions as the deliberate termination of a viable pregnancy and am not referring to instances where the fetus/embryo displays lethal developmental problems or is already dead. Let me also point out that I believe that many things should be legal even th...

should torture be used against terrorists

giantsbane

Many people disagree about whether torture should be used on known terrorists. I believe that torture should be used for various reasons. One reason is torture could prevent lots of "collateral damage", by torturing a terrorist we could find a bomb that would have killed many people if we had not found it. " if we are willing to act in a way that guarantees the misery and death of some considerable number of innocent children, why spare the rod with known terrorists? This shows how if we torture...

Government Surveilance

Government surveillance is a controversial subject. I, however, am on the cons point of view. What about privacy? The idea of government surveillance violates the fourth amendment directly. The United States citizens have a right to privacy. The government cannot commit unreasonable searches. While they would be going through our calls, texts, emails, and internet searches they would be violating that amendment. Not every single citizen in this country is a suspect of a crime. They have no r...

ALM( ALL LIVES MATTER) members needed

"It is raining blood today. I open my book and write "Black Lives Matter" to acknowledge the unanswered injustices. I write "Blue Lives Matter" for how can any human be separate from humanity? I write "All Lives Matter" but stare at these words. Do they invalidate the others? I do not know. I am only a love poet. I stand conflicted but the clouds continue to bleed. I come to erase the phrase but find that the blood has already drowned my words." R13; Kamand Kojouri...

The Death Penalty

byaka2013
Asoz

If murder is (usually) the crime, why should murder be the penalty? The fact is, your just killing more people. Besides, http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/executed-possibly-innocent says more than 1000 people have been falsely accused and killed due to the death penalty (since 1976) You may bring up how the same thing applies to regular prison. To be fair, it does. Maybe there are even more. But there is a difference in killing a person and punishing them with jail. Now, couple no death penalty...
