All Americans should have the right to bear arms (Except felons) because we deserve the right to defend ourselves.

First round is acceptance.

Pro

i accept, as the pro though i think its acceptable for me to set the parameters of the round

1) the insane should not be brought up in this debate as they are the under the same category as felons

2) Would like to define Americans, 18 and citizen following the previous rules
A citizen of the United States.

3) Would like to state that what arms you can bear are at the whim of the district/county/state you are in
ex) if im in arizona i can carry an ak47 loaded but if i go to california i might not even be able to carry a gun loaded that i apparently visible

4) Would like to define what a right is. It is a legal entitlement which can be taken away from you, if there is a need for it
we can look to several supreme court cases in which civil liberties have been taken away because there was a need for it at the time.
probably the most famous civil liberty case, in which the government has taken the right of free speech away was Schenck v. United States

5 should ought not be used in such a manner that portrays obligation, mandatory
