The general argument made by Shiha Dalmia in her work, “The Case Against Banning Guns” is that guns should not be banned in the United States. Banning guns is not going to stop people from killing other people. There is no possible way to collect every single gun in the U.S. and even if there was, people have other ways and items to hurt others. When something gets banned, everyone seems like they want to do that thing more. Guns should only be used for appropriate activities like hunting, for example, but there is no one to stop people from harming others.
Because this amendment seems to be far removed from Americans ' modern-day lives, should it be repealed? Why or why not? No, I do not think it should be repealed. Just because it hasn`t ever been used doesn`t mean that it should be removed. It doesn`t hurt anyone by keeping the Amendment.
Private and religious schools operate somewhat differently. The public has less say, and the state government cannot tell a school such as the private Christian school, Republic School, to not ban books. The school board should still think over the arguments for banning books and their flaws. One argument is that “It is difficult to understand how a school board and administration that claims to be Christian… expose children to such immoral and vulgar material” (Source A). This person argues that certain books go against Christian values, so it should be banned, along with any similar book.
Why are Books Being Banned? There are multiple books around the world being banned. One reason books should not be banned is because books can teach a lesson. Another reason is that every book is written and published for a reason, if the publisher did not think the book was worth something or could have taught something, they would not have taken the time to publish it. Also that books can be encouraging and inspirational.
To stop plagiarizing recall to paraphrase, use quotes, and cite the sources. Applying another person’s work in any way without citing it, is not a crime, but it is an illegal activity. Before people let anyone copy off of them another time or copying someone else’s work they should consider the consequences they can face. Plagiarizing is not going to cause anyone to be proud of people’s work nor will it take them anywhere in life. It can wind up ruining everything they have worked for in their
The culture of America to act in violence when someone disagrees with someone, in my opinion, will never result in progress or solving said disagreement. Screaming at someone and disrespecting someone will not result in them realizing they are wrong, but conversation or peaceful protest has the potential to alter one’s ideas. An idea that struck me, instead of having written code about prohibiting hate speech, why not construct a code that requires a certain percentage of students to sign a petition avoiding that person from speaking on campus. At the same time, to counter that, if an X percentage amount of people sign something requesting for this person to speak at their campus then that person will be allowed and these people are expected
In the United States Constitution the First Amendment says, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…” ("First Amendment.”) How is it in a country where freedom of speech is held so sacred, we are unable to read about it in books? Another question might be, why are we unable to protect our children from such harmful materials? These are questions asked by many as we experience censorship on a regular basis. Censorship is mainly focused on books that children and schools are reading in America. The idea of Censorship and book banning is to protect the youth from potentially harmful ideas or thoughts, but some would argue that in doing so it goes against the First Amendment rights.
The restriction on prayer also means forbidding controversial topics involving religion, which limits opportunities for debates and other educational experiences. “If free religious expression in the form of prayer is prohibited, school officials are, at the very least, teaching children that public acknowledgment of God is not as important as the things the schools can discuss” (MacLeod). Eliminating religion from schools not only hampers students’ freedom, but also the richness of their
Laws are made for the society not against the society. Nobody chooses to be a homosexual. Why would someone choose an identity, which lead them to be disparaged from the society and rejected by their families. Being gay is not a choice, it is something which just occurs to them. Even if being a homosexual is a choice it should not matter because it is an independent choice and you cannot tell a person whom to
they believed they shouldn 't have to pay taxes and have their money go to a war they don 't believe should be even going on. But they payed them anyway. Then in 1755 a few important quakers issued a statement supporting tax resistance on religious grounds. But that did nothing. The fact that they were also not fighting for either side of the war made it difficult for them to fit in and trade with other
In the story about Johnny and his habits of life, one will learn that he is not considered a “bespoke” because he does not spend the money on customized suits. It is proven that people will buy certain pieces of clothing or a pair of shoes just to have the logo on it. One will also learn that most Americans in this generation will never become wealthy because they are wasteful. Many people do not have the discipline to stop spending money on wasteful things. Just like with a credit card, one is not considered wealthy if they own a credit card.
