Not only does the state of Florida not restrict who can buy a gun, but it is illegal for them to keep a database of all the people who own guns, according to USA today. This needs to change. There is nothing protecting the citizens of Florida from tragedies like the shooting at Majority Stoneman Douglas High School from occurring again. People need to realize that this is not an either gun or mental health issue. It is the fact that gun control laws do not stop the mentally ill from obtaining a dangerous firearm.
AFFIRMED.” Taser International Inc. cannot be held liable, based on the information available at the time, for not issuing warnings that repeated exposure to its product could lead to death, said an appellate court, in upholding dismissal of a 2004 wrongful death lawsuit. To conclude, I support the decision of the courts in the case of Rosa vs Taser International, Inc. Under tort law, strict liability the plaintiff needed to prove the defendant’s product was responsible for the death of their son. Taser International Inc. was able to prove their product met the safety standards and documentation, with the taser gun. A key point noted by the court also affirmed, the risk of lactic acidosis was not knowable in
I agree with the case ruling that gun free school zone act exceeds congress ' authority.Although having a bunch of students caring a gun on school grounds isn 't a great idea I don 't necessarily believe that has anything to do with interstate commerce. There is no good reason for students to bring a loaded gun to school. However due to the amounts of shooting we 've had in public places leads me to believe that the government should get involved, obviously states can 't control this issue it themselves. It 's Simply too to get guns just look at the charleston shooting where nine people were killed inside a church, the FBI admitted that the shooter should 've never been cleared to buy a gun. How many more innocent lives need to be taken in
Holding an abstinence only class in middle school prevents the knowledge of safe sex to our youth. The curriculum in these classes teach abstinence as the only morally correct option of sexual emotion. They shy away from teaching about contraception for the prevention of sexually transmitted disease and unintended pregnancies. “Abstinence messages are very important, but clearly the coverage of contraceptive topics is also crucial in helping our youth prevent unplanned pregnancy and STD’s,” says Sara Seims, President of Alan Guttmacher Institute (Livni). A report by Government Reform Committee staff in 2004 examined 13 most common teachings and finalized that only 2 out of the 13 were accurate, but that the other 11 held subjective negotiation and unproved proclamations regarding reproductive health, gender characteristics, and life’s timeline.
Free Speech Coalition, the Supreme Court gave the First Amendment protection to computer – generated or virtual child pornography. Yet, the previous decision in Ferber v. New York virtual pornography is banned. It is considered “real” child pornography. The government held this decision to protect the interest of children. The most serious crime against children is sexual abuse.
"To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity,"- Nelson Mandela. This quote refers to Fortas' and Black's story about students that wear armbands to school. A student's rights should not be taken. The school officials took their rights away by making them take off their armbands or receive suspension. It was not a burden to anyone else.
The reason the united states does not have gun control laws is because Americans say that it 's taking our freedom of owning a concealed weapon and we as Americans can 't protect our families without guns. Without gun control in the US or some high security in our schools and maybe even giving all the teachers handguns to protect families in our communities. “There has been 18 mass shooting just this year, two months into the year 2018”,”(Boston Globe inc). The laws would help decrease the amount of mass shootings that might happen in the near future. Although Americans feel that not having gun control is their constitutional right, gun control will help prevent guns falling into the wrong hands and can lower gun deaths in the US tremendously.
The school unfortunately had no weapon scanners, which is why the 15 year old was able to bring a gun to school. Luckily no one was hurt and he faced the consequences. The boy was with a group of people and someone could have been killed. Guns are not toys and there should be no gun violence. This
Schools have the legal right to suppress your freedom of speech if it interferes with learning, as explained in “What Constitutes Free Speech for Students” when the author includes “1969 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District, unless public school officials can show that language would “materially and substantially” interfere with discipline, they cannot censor students.” (“What Constitutes Free Speech for Students?” 1) So, was this students shorter skirt due to her high a real distraction? Now the entire ordeal of her having to be pulled out from her learning environment to change into much less appealing clothes in no way benefited anyone 's learning but prohibited the students learning with the added effect of her self of steam being destroyed. Ava is not the only example of enforced dress codes interfering with learning more than it benefits it, there are hundreds of thousands of these
School uniforms can restrict students from expressing themselves, according to the first Amendment of the US Constitution it guarantees that all individuals have the right to express themselves freely so if the constitution says that than schools should not have school uniforms (supreme court). School uniforms also promote conformity over individuality and at a time when schools are encouraging an appreciation of diversity, enforcing standardized dress sends a contradictory message that many people disagree with (Howe II). School uniforms do not stop bullying and may increase violent attacks, overall, there is no evidence in bullying literature that supports a reduction in violence due to school uniforms (Jeffords). Students just don’t like school uniforms a peer-reviewed study by researchers at the University of Nevada at Reno found that 90% of seventh and eighth grade public school students did not like wearing uniforms (Wharton). Overall, I think the reasons to implement a school uniform outweigh the reasons to vote against
Should the right to bears arms be more restricted? The governments primary role is to protect the right 's of law abiding citizens, so when did restricting those rights become so popular? The school and mass shooting 's that have plagued our country over the recent years have been the result of mentally disturbed criminals. The fundamental problem with gun bans or further restricting gun rights is that it only works on citizens that are already predisposed to obey the law in the first place. Criminals, which by definition have no regard for the law, will not be phased by the governments restrictions with such laws.
There would have been no black market to sell him the gun either, as the retailers would have been forced to comply with more restrictions. These restrictions would have lessened the bridge that divides American society. No Ferguson police officer would have ever had to fear for his life when faced with the daunting decision of firing his
