Mr Antonucci

In the proposed resolution

"That the United States federal government should significantly limit the

use of its nuclear weapons"

You could define 'use' to mean deterrence.  This is not a hard debate to win-our primary use of nuclear weapons now is as a deterrent capability. An interpretation along those lines would allow arms control/deep cuts affs.  

Just role with the HS rez from my senior year, slightly modified.

That the united states federal government should establish a policy significantly limiting the use of nuclear weapons.

I guess you could add a modifier like "national security" before policy to try and limit a little more.

Bottom line-there is an interpretation of that resolution that mandates affs link to the deterrence da.  And what a delicious DA that is.
