KGNine

Con

During the course of this single round, I will be countering one of my opponent's definitions, while still agreeing to participate in the debate. I feel that my opponent's definition of the police failed on a single account, that will hurt the atmosphere of the debate. Simply defining police as: "The people who control (something) by making sure that rules and regulations are being followed." My opponent made no comment about whether or not they would have to go through the same courses and tests police officers do, in order to receive their positions. I strongly doubt that my opponent desired to count an average citizen, who might enforce the law in certain situations as a police officer. Nevertheless, in the spirit of debate, I will argue my position regardless. I proudly accept the government's challenge, and I am looking forward to this debate.

If this is going to speak to giving cops guns, I would suggest that you exclude the US in this debate. The reason is just debate structure and rules

If this were to be specific to the US, the Pro/Gov side is arguing for status quo9 cops already have guns) typically the burden on the proposition side of a policy topic like this is expected to advocate change. If your advocacy turns out to be the status quo, or your opponent can show your advocacy to be provided by status quo already; pro automatically loses.

Also, all governments could get muddy, since this is a policy that cannot be uniformly enacted by any government agency on the planet. I would suggest narrowing to something like the UK, when cops typically don't carry guns of weapons at all.

Does weapons includes or is it specific to fire arms? To which government does your topic refer.
