Using highly frangible ammunition in warfare is less ethical than using hollowpoint ammunition.

How the hell can anyone vote pro in this? The guy didn't even take this seriously!

I think Con won... he said they are equally ethical and Pro never actually showed why this ammunition is less ethical. So that's how I voted.

"The Devil Worshippers who commit sins like...masturbation"
But you are for mutual masturbation becoming the new handshake? I'm getting the feeling that most of your debates are just one giant ironic joke.

Wow, the opponent is a stereotype of a far right wing nut. He did not address the debate at all and he has no idea what he is talking about. In addition he is a very troubled individual.

I'll take your word on the stopping power, but I was almost certain that the frangibility of the ammunition was intentional and augmented the "stopping power."

The main reason I started this was to raise awareness.

No one in there right mind would debate you, you are on the side of factual truth and you sound like you know what your talking about. I am a CLS in the army and it horrific what the frangible rounds do to internal organs.

You couple that with the fact that they have very little stoping power and they lack penetration power you have an inferior and un-ethical round. Good luck in your debate brother
