I will be taking Pro of Gun Rights. I really wanted an intelligent and deep discussion about gun rights and gun laws in a previous debate, but my opponent didn't participate in it and never replied to my argument. ---I will consider it a freelance debate; no set rules about the rounds--- I will open with an argument of constitutionality.
