In article of “Guns, Campuses and Madness”, Frank Bruni thinks that how the students of the University of Texas think about misbehavior of firearms. College students across the country are very interested in emotional safety, and some schools add "trigger warning" to novels and other texts. They make some rules for campus that people who have gun do not carry into the classroom. One of the rules is that they can
The topic for my paper is the issue of whether guns should be permitted on college campuses. After reading many of the articles in the New York Times I have come to a conclusion or better to say liked one of the articles more than the others. The article is called, “ guns on campuses makes the college less safe” by Javier Auyero. The second amendment states the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Every human should have the opportunity to protect themselves, but that doesn 't mean having a gun would do that.
acquaintances as a healthy, kind person. That is why guns should be carried in campus but only in the hands of police officers and there should be more police officers around campus. For example, at South Texas College, there is security guards but there are no actual police officers. Police officers are prepared for things and have the training needed to use a gun. However, that is not the case since anyone with a gun license can carry a gun in a university.
The freedom of speech and freedom to share one’s opinion is one of the fundamentals rights of a human. By allowing guns on campus, we are indirectly preventing people from freely express their ideas in important learning activity like debate. Students may be sacred to oppose ideas of the person who has a gun because they don’t want them to use the gun on them. This not only creates a very unfriendly learning environment, but prevents the growth of our country as a whole. America is built on diverse ideas from different group of people, and by not comfortably allowing students, who are the future of this country, express their opinions; we are slowing our growth as a nation.
Regardless, if Marie is carrying a gun to protect herself along with the required age, twenty-one and over, and her weapon is concealed, her reflexes have to be quick in order not to get shot. According to Admiral McRaven in the article “Texas Lawmakers Pass a Bill Allowing Guns at Colleges” he states, “I am a guy that loves my guns. I have all sorts of guns. I just do not think bringing guns on campus is going to make us any safer. If you have ever been shot at, which I have, then you have an appreciation for what a gun can do.” Another example of a people not handling guns properly would be when Rick Brown, Southern Utah University’s police chief, was notified by a teacher that a loaded clip had fallen out of a student’s backpack.
Furthermore, allowing guns on campuses will make it easier to criminals and will increase crimes. In other words, holding a gun doesn’t prevent accidents. Guns on Campuses: Flying Bullets Family feud is a long running TV competition show where people are
The supporters for concealed carry on college campuses argue that students and teachers should be able to open carry on campus because it will reduce the number of school shootings. The great state of “Texas has made carrying a concealed weapon on college campuses legal as of August 2016” (New York Times).
“Gun control refers to an all encompassing term that can be linked to the specific laws and regulations enforced by the government restricting firearms as well as the safety measures such as safety components or trigger locks used for firearms and guns.” There are multiple arguments towards gun control like if the laws should be less strict, stay the same, or more strict. The topics in this paper are if the stricter gun regulations will not reduce gun violence, there should be a national right to carry law or the
Why Americans Need Guns The right to bear arms helps protect ourselves and our families. It is our constitutional right to bear arms and I believe it should not be taken away. Some people think if we did not have guns there would be less crime in the United States, but that is not true. When a person purchases a gun at a store they have to register that gun in their name, unless they buy a used one from someone else. If guns are banned the government will take innocent civilian guns away, because they have them registered in their names.
For the sake of campus protestors and their professors across the country, it’s time to make something clear: there’s no such thing as hate speech. That should go without saying, since freedom of speech and free inquiry is supposed to be what college is all about. But the recent spate of violent student protests, from the University of California at Berkeley to Middlebury College in Vermont, have been met with a collective shrug from an alarming number of college students, professors, and administrators who seem to be under the impression that violence is okay so long as its purpose is to silence “hate speech.” By hate speech, they mean ideas and opinions that run afoul of progressive pieties. Do you believe abortion is the taking of human life? That’s hate speech.
It would help if were to get into a gunfight with a terrorist. Defense is not my only concern to have an extended clip, could also be used for hunting. Hunting is a sport people all around the world have done, some do it just to eat, some do it for the fun and eat it. If an intruder broke in and you had a revolver it wouldn’t stop a person at the size of 6 ft or taller and 250 pounds or more. Change the legal age of owning a gun I wish the state of Georgia would change the legal age of owning a gun from 21 to 18.
There are laws to protect and make it legal by obtaining a license in the state in which an individuals is purchasing a gun but that do not stop the black market. Gun control laws and violence with in different states is a clear view that the gun control laws/bans are not really helpful in today’s society. I feel that the law did not abolish the black market of gun purchases therefore people are still purchasing guns illegally for what the state ban in the first place. Now for those individuals who have no criminal background and obtain a gun for recreational purposes (hunting or protection/depends on state laws) within that state then it is
What is the Distinction between DWI and DUI? While DWI is the acronym for Driving While Intoxicated and DUI is the acronym for Driving under the Influence; the distinction between the two traffic offenses often depends on where you live. Some states may use either of the two terms to define a driving offense and other states may define different driving offenses with either of the two terms. There are also a number of states that have a zero-tolerance policy or law that applies to drivers under the legal drinking age of 21. In Texas the main distinction between the two terms is the age of the driver and the degree of damage, seriousness, or injury involved with a traffic driving violation.
The thing that people don 't understand is that, yes gun owners want to take advantage of this open carry law, but most people that have their license will still conceal their weapons as they don 't want the attention. Most say that when the heat, calms down on all the law changing that they might be more comfortable with open carrying so it’s more of a usual thing to be around. Now gun carriers know all the risk of having their guns visible. Most of the instructors that teach the classes tell them that showing your gun can possibly make you the first target in a situation. Having an open carry they know that it could backfire on them.
