(AP Regional State Report) Dog fighting is outlawed in all 50 sates, but there are problems preventing it. The ways we could possibly prevent it, get rid of the fighting dog breed, give animal shelters/ breeders ways to look for signs of people that fight dogs and to start making it mandatory for dogs to be chipped. The pit bull is the main dog breed for fighting in the United States.
What an individual can gain, learn, and/or experience? Many people often feel showing livestock falls under two categories. One, it is just a waste of thousands of dollars, or two, we get meat from livestock. However, to the people who show, it is so much more than that. Showing livestock is what shapes our youth.
Teach how to react after firing a shot Different gun dogs specialize in diverse specific creatures. There are breeds that track flying birds, fight wild pigs or foxes, or snatch fallen animals from the water. But one trait they all share is the eagerness to run towards their prey before you even say so. A proper hunting dog training, therefore, covers teaching it to remain calm before and after you shoot the game.
Why can’t they make an agreement and help each other out to reach what they are both fighting for? Wolves are widely known to be predators of livestock on farms and ranches, which then lead farmers and ranchers to step in and protect their livestock. Many farmers and ranchers end up shooting and killing the wolves before they can even do any harm to the livestock. Ranchers should be able to protect their live property against the wolves, but only if the wolves are being violent or they kill a certain percentage of their livestock.
Gun control By conner clark Did you know that americans have more guns than anyone else on earth and that more than 30,000 americans die each year to firearms. Well that is what these two articles are teaching us that america does not have a lot of gun laws for guns and how people show more animosity towards gun laws after all of the shootings. These two articles are similar but yet are still really different.
Introduction - Ever since the invention of firearms in the 13th century, people have been abusing them for other purposes such as robberies, or murder. Firearms were also the main weapon used during wars for their effectiveness and short time required to set up compared to stationary sentries. Simple knife fights turned into horrific gun fights that could accidentally harm other pedestrians through the ricochet of bullets in the surrounding area. Furthermore, even after World War 2, the number of firearm related deaths kept increasing year by year until the 1970s, with 14.3 deaths per hundred thousand people in the US. (Statistia, n.d) This lead to the people requesting the creation of clothing or material that would be able to counteract
Rodeos have been around for a long time. After cattlemen rounded up their livestock they would all gather together once or twice a year to have a “Rodeo”. It was just a fun get together once the big job of gathering stock was over with. It eventually ended up being a sport that is popular everywhere. The first official rodeo was in Cheyenne in 1872.
Yes police dogs and military dogs may be shot in the line of duty. Also they do not know the risks of their service, but think about all the dogs are in service and how they now owners that take care of them. They could easily be forgotten and abandoned being left without a home. Their is not a moment where the officer is not with his canine “Police dogs live with their partners, a K-9 unit is a team that stays together 24 hours a day, seven days a week (Ed Grabianowski 6). Not only that, but canines save many human lives everyday trying to make a safer place in the community.
But when it’s chained it doesn’t get exercise. Also they become mean chained to a tree. According to, me, my neighbor used to have a dog that was chained to one of their trees in their backyard, when I was seven years old I had my friend over, the dog got loose and charged at me, so we just ran for our lives. Lastly, keeping a dog tethered or chained can make your dog more aggressive. According to, The Humane Society, “....tethering has been proven to be a high risk factor in serious dog bites and attacks.
See criminals are always going to get their hands on guns no matter how many gun restrictions we pass. We can’t stop people from getting guns because there has to be at least 310 million guns and maybe 180 billion rounds of ammo in the US. Now the NORC in 2001 found that 59 percent of people with concealed handguns felt safer when they left their home. That means people from big cities felt safer when they left their homes because they had a concealed handgun. In 2014 there was a 23% incline from women that concealed handguns made them feel safe.
The topic I want to talk about is Gun violence. Gun violence is pretty much explains itself, It is the usage of a gun to commit a violent act. I think Gun violence is an important issue because there are roughly 32,000 gun deaths per year. The way it affects me personally, is because my grandmother shot herself when I was younger.
Secondly, gun massacres are usually committed with legal weapons which makes people believe those could be prevented with stricter laws. Every day 48 children and teenagers get shot, including suicide attempts and unintentional shootings. From this number, seven members of the youth wont survive every single day (1). Considering a whole year, this makes way over 2,500 children and teenager who die from gun violence.
One article online states that gun related violence accounts for about 30,000 to 40,000 deaths every year in America. More than half of these deaths occur due to self infliction (Keidan 48). This makes it obvious that there should be a certain amount of gun laws in place to stop people from hurting each other. However, people commonly have to use guns for self defense. One such example of this happened when four masked men went into a smoke shop.
Firearms are amongst the most lethal means to commit suicide, and individuals rarely survive their first suicide attempt if a firearm is used (Center for Disease Control, 2016). Of the thirteen school shootings in Texas since 2013, three were suicides that resulted in the death of a single individual with no intent to injure anyone else (Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, 2013). According to Neuberger and Spiro (2015), “Studies show that over half of college students contemplate committing suicide — and that the presence of a gun in a household increases the chance of suicide by firearm.” Suicide attempts are often based upon impulses and survivors don’t typically try again. In statistics from the CDC website majority of all suicides, over 21,000 a year, are firearm suicides (CDC, 2016).
Handguns are restricted in Canada, as long as they have a barrel length of 4 inches or larger . Anyone can purchase a handgun after completing a firearms course, and you belong to a gun club.
