16kadams
Malacoda

In this debate, I will argue that allowing (shall issue laws, for example) CCW will decrease violent crime in the United States. My opponent, as CON, will be arguing against this proposition, that CCW laws have no effect, or increase, violent crime rates. Definitions:Concealed Carry: concealed carry weapon, a practice in which a person carries a weapon, generally a firearm, hidden on their person.

Meanwhile, Spain has high unemployment rate (http://www.tradingeconomics.com/spain/unemployment-rate) Along with that, South-Central American countries to tend to have higher crime rate : http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/10/worlds-highest-murder...
