Guns are the most common denominator in shootings, nothing else.

TheBigthink

Pro

First debate, I am trying this things out.

Whoever accepts this debate I'd like to explain the format. Nothing too complicated:

Pro: Introduction statement
Con: Counter arguement (statement that counters mine) + reasoning
Pro: Complete argument + response to reasoning
Con: Complete argument
Udel

Con

I think argument 1 is for acceptance. I accept.

Yes, I'd like to restart this debate and delete this one. Thanks.

There should be no votes on this to be entirely honest due to the fact that no arguments were presented whatsoever.

This resolution is not nonsense, however, it rests heavily on the definition of shooting. If you define shooting as a purposeful act of violence, then I would argue that actually bias and beliefs are the common denominator in every shooting. Or a public debate that rages afterwards. Not all shootings have to include guns. But honestly, why don't you say that "Guns are the most common denominator in mass violence today". That is a better resolution and more fair to Con.

This resolution is nonsense anyway, No hate here but technically when you shoot you are using a gun most of the time because that is what a gun does it shoots.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro does not make any arguments in favor of the resolution and forfeits. Con exhibits superior conduct by following the rules and gracefully accepting a concession. Neither side many arguments.
