Golf on t.v sucks
studentathletechristian8

Con

I thank my opponent for the debate and the audience for the opportunity.

I shall negate the resolution, "Guns dont kill people; Golf on T.V. does."

================================================

Definitions:

guns- weapons consisting of a metal tube, with mechanical attachments, from which projectiles are shot by the force of an explosive.

kill- to deprive of life in any manner; cause the death of.

golf- a game in which clubs with wooden or metal heads are used to hit a small, white ball into a number of holes, usually 9 or 18, in succession, situated at various distances over a course having natural or artificial obstacles, the object being to get the ball into each hole in as few strokes as possible.

T.V.- television; the broadcasting of a still or moving image via radiowaves to receivers that project a view of the image on a picture tube.

========================================

I contend that guns do kill people. When a gun is fired, the speed and strength of the projectile has the ability to make contact with a person and kill him/her. Guns kill people due to the force of impact the projected bullet makes with a person's body.

I also contend that golf on television does not kill people. Simply broadcasting a game of golf on television will not cause the death of various people. Although some may argue that golf is boring, golf on television does not kill people; for it does not deprive life of people watching the broadcast or cause the immediate death of humans.

=========================================

My opponent quoted:

"Golf on t.v sucks."

However, this does not create an argument and does not need a rebuttal.

=========================================

The resolution is negated. I heavily urge a Con vote.

Well guns rarely kill people, the bullets however are a different matter.

although your argument makes sense Cerebral, doesn't mean guns don't kill people =P

If you literally played golf on top of a TV then that could be quite dangerous, and could lead to a death...

I apologize. I will do just that in the proceeding arguments.

Also, you should save the "vote con" stuff for the last argument. I'm sure everyone wants to vote for you, but it's a little annoying to keep saying "vote on" over and over.

con makes much more sense, and what pro said in his first round is true. Golf does suck. Sometimes. However, it does not kill people. For this reason, I will vote for con. Pro should have rethought the title before con accepted the debate. Be more careful about the title. I did a debate about how Twilight is a bad series. I'm only losing because people like Twilight and refuse to accept the fact that it has no plot and sets a bad example for the 12 year old girls who read it, even though my opponent ReganFan is an incompetent moron.
