Guns shouldn't be banned in the United States because some people need guns in order to defend themselves from dangers such as thief, criminals, etc.
Trexcalibur

Con

4 points to Con (Conduct, Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: ff

[*Reason for removal*] While the conduct point can be justified by the forfeit, it is insufficient reasoning for allocating arguments points.

Reasons for voting decision: My personal beliefs stand with the Instigator, so he had my vote in two of the categories. The Instigator had better conduct because he did not attempt to use something against his opponent. The Instigator had better grammar since he bothered to put punctuation in front of every sentence. The Instigator was the only one who actually tried to make an argument, so he technically made the most "convincing" arguments. Nobody used any sources, so no one got my vote for who used the most reliable sources.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro actually gave a reason to why it shouldn't be banned, Con did nothing. He did forfeit, so Con only gets that point

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's argument that guns are needed for self defense was never contested, so he wins argument points, but loses conduct due to the forfeit.
