Pro

No regular civilian should be able to purchase or use an automatic gun.

Con

I accept.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Why should we have an automatic gun? You can't hunt any animal with them because you would blow the whole thing apart. No reason to have them at all.

Con

I will wait until my opponent post arguments with evidential ground, I wait.
Debate Round No. 2

Pro

Why should anyone have an automatic weapon? Unless you are fighting in a war, you will not need one. You probably would need one if you were part of the MS13 gang or something like that. I bet you couldn't tell everyone 10 reasons why we should be able to have automatic weapons... Go ahead, I'll wait.

Pro wants me to list ten reasons why civilians should have automatic weapons, however since he never said the BOP was on me or the BOP was shared, to do this would be bad conduct. Cheers!

No philosophical debates are rested on logical premises, these debates are based on evidential arguments.

Everything is based on assertions. Logic is just more practical. Pro was logical.

So what? Pro gave the argument that law-abiding citizens don't need guns and guns are only needed by gangs.

Reasons for voting decision: There were never any actual substantiated arguments offered therefore, as the burden of proof is on Pro as the instigator, the points go to Con.
