To demonstrate whether a person should own a firearm or not, Joe Messerli wrote an article to compare the pros and cons of owning a firearm. In favor of gun control he first, stated that the right to own a gun should be restricted because it would reduce crime. Second, those mental disabled persons, kids who are bullied and aggravated workers could cause a dangerous incident that would not have occurred if gun ownership was restricted. Third, a person who has a gun would be in more danger than a person without one against a criminal. Fourth, suicide and crimes of love or jealousy are more likely to occur easier with a firearm available.
Martin Luther King Jr and Senator Robert F. Kennedy which led to the creation of the Gun Control Act in 1968. Furthermore, there have recently been some mass shooting incidents that have brought about huge debates on the issue of gun control. These debates emphasize the need to strengthen the gun control laws that are currently in place, which are meant to regulate the buying, selling, and owning of gun. Lastly, even though gun control goes against the right given to individuals by the second amendment, having stricter gun control laws is beneficial for the safety of the nation because gun control can significantly decrease the number of deaths that occur because of mass shootings and gun control can also prevent students from shooting up schools. The enforcement of stricter gun control laws would be extremely beneficial for the safety of the people in the United States.
The hunters turned against Ralph and immediately their savage instinct took over. Golding describes the scene, “He blundered into the open, found himself again in that open space...no longer ridiculing a deep blue patch of sky but jeering up into a blanket of smoke,” this is foreshadowing what Golding later states
The same is true for combination locks, especially for those who tend to forget their combinations. The need for gun owners to keep their guns put away arose largely from gun control laws, but also from common sense as parents want to protect their curious kids from hurting themselves or others. For the ease of access in the case of some emergency situation, a biometric gun safe is probably the best bet. Imagine the situation in the worst-case scenario, and under pressure if you had your choice to use your fingerprint safe versus fumbling for the key or recalling the right combination...you can surely see the clear advantage of a biometric design. Biometric pistol safes are also great if you have small valuables to store, as many of these safes come with enough storage for your guns and then
I believe that due to recent shootings, we as America should do something to put an end to these shootings. I know that the difference between gun advocates versus gun control activists is that gun advocates have guns and know how to use them properly. Donald Trump has stated that to put an end to the shootings is not only due from obtaining a gun, but mental health. I also believe that it isn’t necessary to own a gun unless you’re using. I am torn between both sides, because half of the people feel more safe when they have a gun on hand, and the others feel more safe knowing that no one is in possession of a weapon.
In the book Golding argues that human violence is inherent and when there are no rules the violence within one is brought out. Violence corrupts society because irrational decisions are being made out of anger and fear. At first, in the novel, rules are put in place and there is some order to the way the boys do things, they have a leader. Eventually the fear in everyone comes out and creates a culture of violence. An specific example of violence corrupting society is when the boys become hunters end up killing Simon because they want to think he is the beast.
In the beginning of the tragedy Othello tells Brabantio to “Keep up your bright swords signior, for the dew will rust them” (1.2.72-73). This statement gives the reader insight to Othello’s level-head and smart decisions, before he allowed jealousy to cloud his vision. Othello becomes convinced that Desdemona has cheated on him with Cassio; therefore, he is angered and beings to seek revenge for a crime that was never committed. Iago tells Othello “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster, which doth mock the meat it feeds on” (3.3.187-189).
Victor has now revealed his inclination to imagine a crime committed by someone and quickly believe it as true; in this case, his accusations will always go towards the creature, because of his relentless hate for the being, and he will always believe the creature to be a criminal. In the same way that Victor changes his mind to suit his convenience, he can believe at once that a person has wronged him, at least when it is a person he detests, such as his creation. Such are the qualities of a man who, though monstrous, is not a monster in nature, unlike his
The second amendment argument is a favorite topic for both sides of this argument. It can be used to help aid both sides of the gun control debate. Loopholes are another part of this grand argument, used by the side opposed to gun control, saying that loopholes are impossible to close, while the pro gun control side argues that stricter gun control and background checks make these loopholes not an issue. Both sides can be easily argued, but there is only one side that can save countless lives. Stricter gun control will work to pr otect citizens by limiting gun violence, keeping Second Amendment rights, and closing gun loopholes.
“A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that "legal purchase of a handgun appears to be associated with a long-lasting increased risk of violent death"(-https://gun-control.procon.org/). There is such a thing as an unlicensed dealer selling handguns without a background check and proper documentation and it is legal. Those gun buyers are mainly causing chaos with mass shootings and yet others think the Second Amendment defends the right to own a weapon for “self-defense”. It is time for tougher gun control laws; the safety of the citizens depends on a safe environment free of guns from those using them for villainous purposes such as mass shootings or homicides. The age restrictions on guns is preposterous; any teenager
