The general argument made by Paul Waldman in his work, “The Case For Banning Guns”, is that Paul Waldman believes that guns should be banned. More specifically, Paul Waldman believes that we should ban items that make guns more dangerous like bump stocks or devices that turn your semi-automatic gun into an automatic weapon. Paul Waldman writes, “No matter what legislation we might pass, even in liberal states that have increased restrictions in recent years, we won 't get anywhere near banning guns. In particular, we won 't address the biggest gun problem we have, which is not mass shootings but the daily carnage that claims around 90 Americans lives every day — and that means handguns, not military-style rifles or accessories like bump stocks. Precisely because we can 't start from scratch, all we can do is trim around the edges, try to find ways to reduce the unending slaughter a little bit here and a little bit there.” What Paul Waldman suggests in this passage is that we need to start getting rid of all the items that are used to make guns more dangerous to trim down on these problems.
His first statement was that Canada had no dominion over the Northwest Territories at the time of the uprising, deeming them as an invader (p.9). Secondly, he explained that the Métis had a right to defend themselves against the invasion of Canada. Nonetheless, the court had not accepted the insanity defence nor Riel’s pleas. The outcome of the trial was not in favor of the Métis leader and the jury would claim him as guilty of high treason against the Canadian regime. He was sentenced to be hung in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Manufacturing Guilt Wrongful Convictions in Canada, follows the theme of the first edition where the authors demonstrate what leads to wrongful conviction. We all know that innocent mistakes happen however, wrongful convictions are usually the result of deliberate actions of those working in the criminal justice system and not unintended errors. By using Canadian cases as miscarriages of justice, the authors argues that understanding wrongful convictions and how to prevent them is incomplete outside the broader societal context in which they occur, particularly regarding racial and social inequality. This book also analyzes how forensic science is used as a resource for prosecutors rather than seeking the truth. What is miscarriage of justice?
v Morgentaler that he waged against what he believed was an outdated law. The trial was particularly notable because it was responsible for striking down Canadian legislation surrounding abortion making it so there is absolutely no law regarding abortion. It was overturned on the fact that it violated section 1(a) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the right to life, liberty and security of the person (Hamilton). This is still the case today as there are currently no restrictions surrounding abortion in Canada, excluding several Maritime Provinces which have many societal factors stopping women from easily and cheaply accessing abortions. This would later prove to be one of the most significant and controversial decisions in Canadian law.
THIS COURT SHOULD REJECT THE FOURTEENTH CIRCUIT’S TOTALITY OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES APPROACH AND INSTEAD APPLY A BRIGHT LINE STANDARD OF REVIEW TO DETERMINE WHETHER AN AUTHORIZED DRIVER OF A RENTAL CAR HAS STANDING TO CHALLENGE THE LEGALITY OF THE SEARCH The Fourteenth Circuit Court of Appeals improperly applied the totality of the circumstances approach in determining that Respondent Larry Nightingale has standing to assert a Fourth Amendment challenge to the search of the rental vehicle he was driving at the time of the traffic stop checkpoint.

The Voting Rights Act was passed in order to stop states from prohibiting any laws or actions that could potentially hinder the ability for a minority to vote (DMS Chapter 3). This act gives the federal government more power in how states run elections. Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act is what defines a state’s ability to not being able to pass a discriminatory disenfranchisement law. This section centers on voter dilution, which are the processes that make voting for candidates difficult for racial or ethnic minorities (Clark lecture, Jan. 25). On the basis of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, felony disenfranchisement laws can be seen as a form of voter dilution because these laws are disproportionally affecting a large number of African American minorities in prison.
