A ban on "media violence" is an infringement on free speech and freedom of the press. If you don't like it- don't watch it, but don't try to tell others what they expose themselves to. I am against banning media violence.

I would like to thank my opponent for accepting, but I'm afraid he doesn't understand the resolution. He accepted as Pro, but he said he's against banning media violence.

It just is another way to say "resolution", so just the topic of the debate.

What does it mean by "Resolved" in regards to the topic title?
