well i believe it's kinda self explanatory. You can start the argument right away.

Con

Your side of the debate is contradictory. You say that guns are for wimps, then say that guns are for people that have enemies that have guns. The first part of your argument contradicts the second part, and vice versa.

well i kinda made two categories. the other is not really in relation to the first. i was making an exemption. but generally yes guns are for wimps. because the enemy is a wimp if they use guns. it takes far more skill and effort to kick someones butt with a sword or bo staff or even nunchaku than it does a gun.

Guns are mainly used for self-defense. What makes someone a wimp if they are defending themselves? If someone breaks into your house and is trying to rob you, and you pull out a gun to defend yourself, that is not being a wimp. Guns are not for wimps, they are used to defend yourself, and defending yourself does not make you a wimp.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made grammar errors and the very first one is in the title, which is a very important part of a debate, therefore pro loses points in spelling and grammar. Con made a point followed by a decent anecdote, that Pro did not refute. Instead he forfeited, losing him points in conduct because normally one shouldn't forfeit a debate, especially one he or she instigated.
