She also discussed what is already being done with these offenders and if these punishments were effective or not. The main part of her article that I used is the fact that jail time does no good for DWI offenders.
United States Supreme Court ruled in 2008 and 2010 that the reference to militia is just an explanation of why Congress ratified the amendment (civil-rights.lawyers.com).

Educating the American people is the next argument which leads into using funds from various driving campaigns is better spent for this type of education. The author then attacks the law itself by citing it as a “preemptive law.” The last point Peter Roff makes is that it is wrong to
After reading this journal and reviewing the statistics stated it clearly shows no correlation of the two. By seeing these results it makes you wonder what else then can be done to lower the rates of gun control.

At the campaign rally in Burlington, Vermont, in January 2016, Trump claimed that mass shootings in areas such as San Bernardino, Chattanooga, and Orlando could have been prevented if the victims “had guns on the other side.” The Second Amendment grants Americans the right to bear arms, which allows them to protect themselves. This freedom to use guns is a privilege, but one with many consequences. Mass shootings such as the Orlando shooting, which killed 63 people and wounded 75, may have very well been prevented if the victims were armed.
Hillary Clinton: Guns/ Second Amendment Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign has taken a strong stance against the Second Amendment of our U.S constitution.

Government is called to dictate internet content when one incites people to violence with his speech, however, it needs to be a true threat which includes immediacy and an actual intent. For instance, during the Vietnam War, a man expressed that “if he got drafted, his first bullet would be for President Johnson.” The Court detected no threat nor any real intent in the context, therefore, the government had no need to monitor what was being said. If the speech did not pose any likely threats but was regulated by the government, one’s freedom of
Do Gun Control Laws Lessen Gun Crime? Frederic Lemieux, F. "Effect of Gun Culture and Firearm Laws on Gun Violence and Mass Shootings in the United States." International Journal of Criminal Justice Sciences 9.1 (2014): 74-93. The main purpose of the article is to investigate the value of two statements at the foundation of the common controversy on gun control law in the result of shootings in the United states: (1) firearm violence and extensive shootings are a cultural possibility; (2) gun crime and violence and extensive shootings are more popular due to lenient rules and laws.
Gun Control Debate Jake Novak, in an article for CNBC titled, “Gun control isn’t the answer. We already know how to stop the violence,” gives his opinion regarding the controversial issue of gun control. Novak argues that gun control is not the answer to rising gun violence but that proper enforcement of the law would go a long way in reducing the cases of gun violence in America.
