The First Round Is To Accept The Debate.
You Will Of Had To Have Completed One Debate To Accept This So I Have More Faith That
Your Not Going To Stop Arguing After The Second Round.

I accept. I ask my opponent to refrain from capitalizing every word as it is grammatically incorrect and difficult to read. He may read this in order to understand when to capitalize a letter (www.towson.edu/ows/capitalization_rules.htm).

Firearms are related to increased homicide and suicides. In areas with more gun ownership, there is more homicide.

Banning firearms would reduce the amount of guns in circulation, and thus decrease crime.

Vote Pro.

I Am Very Sorry But I Won't Be Able To Complete This Debate As Something Came Up At College.
I Must Seem Like Huge Hypocrite.
I Sincerly Apologize For Wasting Your Valuable Time, Vote Pro.
If Your Still Interested Pro I Will Create A Debate Similer To This One Next Friday And Challenge You To It.
I Thank-You For Your Understanding.

This is asking people, "Should we forgo the pre-set laws determined by the founding fathers of our beautiful nation and virtually abolish the second amendment?" There should be control when guns are a factor, but eliminating them completely is a bad idea.
