dmessy
Cobalt

Relatively short debate only 3,000 characters per. Arguments are allowed in round one. I am arguing that something has to be eternal.

more guns mean more homicide, more gun control means less homicide

Hepburn reviewed research from peer-reviewed journals and found that the evidence from studies of U.S. cities, states and regions "is quite consistent " where there are higher levels of gun...
