Con

Since automatic weapons are currently illegal, and my opponent did not prove that they should be legalized, you should presume that we should not legalize them and vote negative. My opponent has conceded the round.

Con

Please remember to presume negative because the affirmative is advocating a change in the status quo but has not proven that the change should occur. I contend that automatic weapons should not be legalized because crime would increase and more people would be murdered.

Please extend the presumption analysis and the fact that crime will increase. My opponent has dropped all of my arguments. Please vote negative. Thank you.
