With all the gun control going on do you think that it will spark an armed rebellion?
ResponsiblyIrresponsible

Con

I accept this debate.

Some basic definitions

You - "used to refer to the person or group of people that is being addressed as the subject of a verb or as the object of a verb or preposition" [http://www.merriam-webster.com...]. In this case, this refers to me, CON.

Think - "to have a conscious mind, to some extent of reasoning, rememberingexperiences, making rational decisions, etc." [http://dictionary.reference.com...].

Gun control - "laws that control how guns are sold and used and who can own them" [http://www.merriam-webster.com...]

Revolution - "an overthrow or repudiation and the thorough replacement of anestablished government or political system by the people governed." [http://dictionary.reference.com...]


This resolution deals with what I, CON, think about whether gun control will start the next revolution in the US--not whether it will. I have exclusive access to the content of my own mind, meaning that only I know precisely what I'm thinking with respect to this topic. PRO must be able to prove, in order to fulfill his burden of proof, that I think gun control will start the next revolution in the U.S.

But the truth is, I do not think this. I think this resolution is utterly silly, and not only will the U.S. not likely see gun control soon, but even most gun owners, sans the NRA, support some modest gun control measures. It will not lead to a revolution.


Vote CON, therefore. Thank you.

Lol, Ikr. People like him live in their own little world where Obama is a Kenyan, communist, Muslim, atheist; taxes on the rich are 99% (heck, even the 50% figure the far right loves to cite is fact-free); Obama is coming to take your guns; schools are pressuring children to "become gay"; etc. There's no end to inanity.

I have doubts that this guy will make it back, but I sure hope he addresses "With all the gun control going on..." Love to know what that is.

Reasons for voting decision: If the government takes my penis like pro is saying I will most definitely revolt. Obama can keep his hands off my penis, however despite the fact that I agree with pro, I have to vote for con because of the forfeit. Con, I advise you to rethink your stance on this, despite me giving you the win. Don't let Obama take your penis, please fight for your manhood. The feminists can't win.
