This is a debate over gun laws. Pro is arguing that tighter laws won't help the gun-related murder rate. Con is doing just the opposite.

Gun Laws- laws which restrict gun ownership
Gun-Related Murder Rate- number of people killed with guns feloniously (self-defense doesn't count)

a few rules:

1. first round is rules, acceptance, and greetings

2. second is opening argument, no rebuttals

3. rebuttals to oponents opening argument, NOT their rebuttal

4.be fair, don't try and assault oponents character

5. accept either win or loss with pride, do not try and blame it on votebombs, grudges, or preset beliefs. they voted their way for a reason, and, much like a presidential election, it doesn't truly matter what the reason was. we can't prove anything negative anyways.

6. don't discredit sources over "bias" as all sources which present a conclusion on something are biased. presenting false information is all you can discredit and you must prove it.

7. while i don't care much about grammar, make sure your misspellings and lack of grammar doesn't change your argument. what you submit is final, even if you do correct it in another round or a comment, the riginal submission is what will count.
