Right now I'm looking for some high quality debates on both sides on a few topics, and I was hoping I could get some help finding them from people who have been around longer. Gun control because I have a lot of mixed feelings right now that I need to work through on that, and global warming legitimacy and severity because I know someone who doesn't believe in it that agreed to read something like this.

Gun control/bans:
1.
2.
3.

Global warming legitimacy/severity:
1.
2.
3.

Appreciate the help, thanks
Debate me: Economic decision theory should be adjusted to include higher-order preferences for non-normative purposes http://www.debate.org...

Do you really believe that? Or not? If you believe it, you should man up and defend it in a debate. -RoyLatham

In that case I'd recommend a debate site.

I wish I could make this more clear in the OP, but this is not meant to be me looking for challenges, as I do not have the time to devote to a debate right now or in the forseeable future. I am looking for debates to read.

It is a gun ban debate, quite long, but you'll finish it.

Gun control/bans:
1. http://www.debate.org... -- Bluesteel made the best case that's ever been made for an assault weapons ban
2. http://www.debate.org... -- Another good debate. Bluesteel made a strong theoretical case for banning guns.
3. http://www.debate.org... -- These guys did a decent job of exploring the efficacy of gun control proposals

Global warming legitimacy/severity:
1. http://www.debate.org... -- 16kadams pretty much refuted all the best anti-AGW arguments.
2. http://www.debate.org... -- Another one if you want, but I think the first one's the best.

Well, we have to debate for the Debate Cup, so No fly no buy could be a good topic to go on.

I'm now intrigued. How on Earth can you say that the Earth isn't populated at this current population and use global warming as a justification of that?
