The first round is for the laying down and acceptance of the match rules.
The second round is for saying our opinion and reasoning.
The third round is for arguments against the opinions.
The fourth round is for the summary and closing statements.

If my opponent chooses to accept the challenge, these are the rules we shall follow.

I accept the challenge and await my opponents reply. I wish my opponent luck!

I also wish my opponent luck.

A primary concern of people carrying guns is the possibility of violence, which, admittedly, sounds plausible on the surface. However, there is one human aspect that almost guarentees that violence would not occur often; fear. Fear is a crippling human aspect which stops us in our tracks. How likely is someone to pull out a gun when potentially dozens of people also have firearms? Not very.
This would also cause an increase in a want for firearms, thus creating new jobs in the gun making and selling businesses.

As my opponent did not state any opinions, or anything at all, I hope that he/she states some in the next round. The order of this has been destroyed. Now, the last round will be for counter-arguements.

To further my statement, most people with guns will not know how to use them, so the threat of more potential violence is decreased even more so.
I truly wish I could argue with my opponent's statements, but they do not exist.

As my opponent seems to have no opinion on the subject that he or she can word, I have no more to say. This debate was a disgrace to the name of debate.

I find no need to debate this with only one round left. Is there any way we could try this one again!? Sorry about my absence.
