Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Many believe this, but columnist Nicholas Kristof, author of “Our Blind Spot about Guns,” published in 2014 in the New York Times, disagrees. A rhetorical analysis should consist of: logos, pathos, and ethos. Kristof’s use of logos is strong due to the amount of facts and statistics he offers to his audience, but he fails to strongly use pathos and ethos, due to the lack of these elements Kristof’s argument is weakened.
As a Baptist minister Huckabee personally opposes legalization but as a presidential candidate his is getting out in front of the issue. “I think we need to recognize, marijuana has never made anybody a better citizen,” Huckabee said. “Do we really think marijuana is something we want to encourage people to have greater access to? Does it make you a better worker? Does it make you a better mom or dad?”
He reports about criminal justice, the drug war and civil liberties. Radley is also an author of a book named “Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces”. This editorial is targeted to persuade lawmakers and anyone else opposing meth being legal. Lawmakers passed laws that made it more difficult to acquire pseudoephedrine because they believed it would prevent meth from being produced. Several years passed and that clearly is not the case according to several
Where the weapons were obtained in the sandy hook shooting and the Orlando shooting were dramatically different. Lanza took the weapons from his mother who owned them legally, but Lanza was unable to have firearms because of his mental illness. Mateen was cleared by the federal background check even though the FBI did some monitoring on him. His radical beliefs caught the eye of the federal government, but someone 's religion can not be used to stip individuals of their rights. Lastly he explains that, “cultural beliefs are significantly related to people’s opinions about gun control, but the strongest, most consistent predictors of people’s gun control preferences are their political beliefs and affiliations,” (Wozniak 2).
According to the New York Times journalist Alan Schwarz, he suggests, “The N.F.L.’s concussion studies have faced questions since they were published” (“N.F.L.’s Flawed Concussion Research and Ties to Tobacco Industry”). The NFL has formed a committee to conduct researches on concussions and its effects, although many data and researches are flawed and concealed from the public. Alan Schwarz also commented, “Confidential data obtained by The Times shows that more than 100 diagnosed concussions were omitted from the studies” (Schwarz). In order for NFL to fully gain profit without any backlashes on “not conducting a research” from the public, the NFL decided to create a study based on falsified information and omitted data. As a result, fans and even doctors was unaware of the situation on concealment.
The more aware the public is over this head injury, the better of a chance there is to save a life. It can only take one concussion that can ruin a life. The multiple hits on the head from youth ball to the pros adds up even though it may not appear to at first. I may sound hypocritical by chastising the NFL about not acknowledging the importance of the head injuries caused by the game, yet talking how much fun the game was. It all comes down to awareness.
Why Marijuana Should Be Made Legal In his article, “Drugs: Case for Legalizing Marijuana,” in the September 26, 1970 issue of the New York Times, Gore Vidal argued why marijuana should be made legal. I agree with Gore in his opinion that marijuana should be legal, but don’t agree that it should be sold at cost, that all drugs should be legal, or that it would end most drug addiction in the United States. First, I don’t personally believe that drugs will ever be sold at cost in the United States.
Legalizing marijuana can make the state some money and there are many benefits to it. Legalizing marijuana won’t benefit at all for the big corrupt pharmaceutical companies, if the cannabis is passed as a drug for health issues. Maybe that’s why lawmakers haven’t maybe won’t pass the law to legalize Marijuana. Yes the companies can get involved but then somehow it will get corrupt and won’t benefit the citizens.
Whether or not doctor assisted suicide should be legal is a very controversial subject right now with terminally ill people petitioning for the right to die on their own terms and stop suffering. Doctor assisted suicide is only legal four States out of 50 in the United States. The topic has sparked many debates about whether or not legalizing doctor assisted suicide is the morally right thing to do. I think doctor assisted suicide should be legal for terminally ill patients.
The recently elected Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, is changing the laws regarding marijuana in order to make a safer Canada. If law does not prohibit fast food chains, if alcohol is made accessible to all individuals, and tobacco is accessible to the individual on their own free will, then why should there be any restrictions on the use of cannabis, which is also known as marijuana. Legalizing cannabis has always been a debatable issue by society, as some are for it and others are against it. As for the past several decades many have tried to legalize cannabis have failed and in today’s day Prime Minister Treadu brings us very close to the goal of achieving it.
This documentary opened my eyes to many of the things that occur in my own country. I knew that politicians were looking for a way to use the resources that we have here in our own country instead of having to buy them from others, but I would have thought they would have done it while in the best interest of the people. Before watching this documentary, I was not familiar with natural gas or any of the processes that it takes to make it. I just knew that it was an efficient energy source. With any resource that we remove from the earth, we risk hurting people and many other things in the process.
With all this said and done and prices steady rising before his arrest, Shkreli still felt the need to create more damage to his public image by spending millions on items that others may have wanted and then bragging about it on social media and other
Anyone that thinks gun control is the answer to the killing that is going on is wrong! Nothing will change until parents start teaching their children right from wrong. Gun Control is too much of a political something you do to win a battle or to get what you want and failing. Politicians talks about the need to increase gun restrictions to stop gun crime, but new and current gun laws are designed to fail in order to allow certain people to own them and make unhappy because of not having a vote others.
With the rise of school shootings, one would be quick to assume that restricting ownership of firearms would solve the problem. However, the issue stems further than just guns. The tragedy at Virginia Tech may reveal to us something about how a young man could be compelled to commit shocking actions, but it does not advise us very much about gun control. Recently, not many distinguished Americans have tried to use the college massacres as an argument for gun control. A logic for this is that we are in a middle of a presidential race in which popular Republican candidates are mindful that advocating gun control can earn them votes.
