Should guns be banned?


Guns should not be banned. I do not own a gun, nor does anyone in my family. I am fully aware of the danger of guns and of the school shootings that have occurred. But banning guns is a bad idea. In 2010, in America, 32 percent of people own guns. ( That is a lot of people. If you ban guns, how are you going to collect all of those guns? Will you march up to each and every one of their doors? And how do you know it wouldn't end up like Prohibition? We all know how that...

I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...

Sporadically a debate starts about whether companies should be allowed to customize their marketing strategies and even their product based on the highly personal data about their potential customers that they nevertheless get from the customers themselves.

People that self-harm, or cut themselves, are selfish and attention seeking


My argument is that self-harmers should NOT be regarded as selfish or simply attention seeking. A large majority of these people self-harm for specific reasons, such as to relieve mental or emotional stress. Also, the stereotypes that you usually see cut exclusively on their wrists, where most people can easily see. This is not the case for most self-harmers. In fact, most people choose to cut on their upper thighs or stomach, regions of the body that are not usually visible with clothing on. Th...

By accepting the debate, Con agrees to define the Cold War as "the period of political tension between the United States and the Soviet Union lasting from the end of World War...

Is there a reason why most black fathers are not involved in their children's life?


It bothers me to see black children without a father, because I'm one of those children. It seems as if after the 1970's African American fathers disappeared from their children's life, and I really want to know why. It is proven fact that after the crack- cocaine epidemic millions of black families were hindered. I know that all black fathers were not addicted to crack-cocaine, but it surely seemed to effect all black fathers. Statistic shows that when an African American male is raised without...
