Con

People should have guns because they cant protect them and they need to know when to use them corectly and even our first president said that carrying guns was more important than to the constantustion itself.

Pro

I accept.


Resolved: Should people have tasers to pretect them selves


As PRO, I must argue that people should have taserts to protect themselves while CON will argue they should not.


CON goes on to make an argument for why people should be able to carry guns, but guns aren't relevant to this resolution. Insofar as a taser is a gun, all of the arguments he has made here can apply to why people ought to be able to have tasers for protction. CON basically concedes the debate.

Therefore, vote PRO.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Pro. Con forfeited every round in the debate aside from his opening round. This is rarely acceptable conduct in any debate setting. S&G - Pro. Con had several spelling errors in his only round, Pro had no such errors. Arguments - Pro. Con failed to rebut the counter-argument presented by Pro. Additionally, Con failed to provide anything after that. For this, Pro wins arguments as he was left standing unchallenged. Sources - Tie. Neither utilized sources in this debate.
