I believe firearms should be always under regulation by the government. I welcome you to debate me on this, and maybe even change my mind.

1. Acceptance. Don't present arguments in the first round.
2. Arguments. Con can't rebuttal Pro.
3. Rebuttal and more arguments.

The motion does not apply exclusively to the USA.
The motion does not apply to impotent/inactive firearms, such as ones kept for souvenirs (e.g. ones that are incapable of shooting).

From Merriam-Webster:
Firearm- "a weapon from which a shot is discharged by gunpowder "usually used of small arms".
Regulate- "a: to govern or direct according to rule
b (1): to bring under the control of law or constituted authority (2): to make regulations for or concerning".


I accept. Good luck.

Hey, I realized I made a mistake creating this debate- I wanted to have 3 debating rounds, and instead have 2. Would it be cool with you if I just reported this one for deletion and opened a new one?

Firearms should be regulated by Constitution, as it is United States Conditional that describes a limited form of regulation by governing as right.
