School safety is an ongoing debate in America and the question of, are schools safe, will never go away but, what could be done to make it a less prominent or less talked about question. Some say that we need more law enforcement in schools, some say we should get rid of guns, and others may say that we should simply make it harder for the wrong kind of people to get guns. I feel that we should have to take a class (much like a hunting or drivers license) and a test annually in order to own guns. Many people would like a world where guns are completely banned or outlawed. While this may work on paper, you can’t deny that if we were to outlaw guns then only criminals would have them thus leaving the non-criminals defenseless.
For every 1,000 people killed by police, only one officer is convicted of a crime. In “MLK Freedom Rides Speech” MLK argues that we should always use peaceful methods to have change. In contrast, in “By Any Means Necessary” Malcolm X argues we should use peaceful methods but if violence is used upon us we should also fight back with violence. Indeed, some argue that if we are using peaceful methods and violence is being used upon us we should fight back with violence while others believe we should fight back with peace. Violence doesn 't solve nothing it just gets more people killed.
By examining the profanity, racial content, and references to rape, it’s deemed inappropriate for teens to read and is banned from several school libraries and lessons in school. Does the moral lesson of the story outweigh the so called inappropriate content of the book? Many people would agree with me if I said that To Kill a Mockingbird has a lesson in the story that every child should read and learn
Adversity breaks one down until they can be broken no more, and although adversity has a negative connotation, overcoming adversity can make one stronger, turning it into a positive. When America was discovered and colonized, the indigenous peoples faced real hardships. Americans disliked anything that wasn’t European culture so they tried to eliminate tribal identities and assimilate the Native Americans into their culture. They outlawed certain Indian rituals such as the Ghost Dance and forced Indian children to speak English instead of their native languages. The constitution did not outline specific details for relations with Natives, so as America grew older, the government was left to deal with the Indians however they pleased.
Both Beatty and Martin Bormann had been brainwashed into believing or disbelieving in a particular topic. Beatty and the rest of society had been grown up only remember that books were bad and owning them would be a disgrace. However, there were some citizens in their society who disobey these rules which resulted in them getting ‘fixed’. After visiting Montag, Beatty had explained to him that they have lowered the kindergarten age year so they can catch just about every child and teach them at a young age. Lowering the kindergarten age, shows the different ways that the government tries to keep everyone from books keeping them from thinking for themselves.
It’s time to #TakeAKnee “We never get rid of hate by meeting hate with hate; we get rid of an enemy, by getting rid of enmity. By its very nature hate destroys and tears down.” Dr. Martin Luther King stated that the purpose of non-violent protest was not to get revenge but to change the heart of the enemy. Over the past couple of years America has begun to acknowledge police brutality as a serious problem. While state-sanctioned violence towards individuals of varying races of color is not new, the documentation through dash-cams and civilian cellphone footage has brought the brutality to light. From Ferguson to Tulsa to Baton Rouge, there have been countless cases of police brutality towards African-American men, women, and children.
These countries are aware that how things were in the past and the laws that worked back then wouldn’t work in a more modernized and free world. Staying one step ahead of its people and shifting towards better things that will benefit their countries. The United States 25 killing is nothing compared to the “36,000 Americans who were victims of firearm-related deaths in 2015 alone”. If these numbers are scary then imagine what they look like today with the increased mass shootings, and easy access to such weapons. If this isn’t waking America up and making them aware that things must change then nothing
The most important points Vonnegut is trying to get a crossed to his readers are the issues of the inevitability of war, fatalism, and of free will. War is usually fought over religious beliefs, different cultures, land, or governmental disputes. We as people are more willing to be violent to one another to get our point across then to avoid war entirely by recognizing everybody's differences and learning to live together in peace and the key to no violence is communication. War is inevitable because both sides are never going to accept one another's differences. The bombing of Dresden wasn't necessary because there was no threat coming from there.
We should raise gun restrictions rather than adding more guns because lives are being lost, guns only bring harm, and because we have seen the success of other nations who have raised restrictions. Guns violence has been on the headlines due to the recent mass shootings, this is because precious lives are being lost. Children, adults, and innocent people are being hurt. Not everyone that owns a gun wants to cause a mass shooting, but the
Residents of the United States can, and do state that more gun control and assault rifle laws would reduce gun deaths. Senator Chris Murphy, a Democratic senator from Connecticut, asserted "This happens nowhere else, other than the United States of America. It only happens here, not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a consequence of our inaction. We are responsible for a level of mass atrocity that happens in this country with zero parallel anywhere else” (Lopez). Citizens can conclude, through research and data, more gun control would lead to fewer suicides.
As far as I’m concerned, unless we quit trying to kill each other there won 't be anyone left to rule the world. I don’t think anyone wants us here”. This shows that Robert Peterson a US soldier anger towards why the united states stepped in and how it benefit the United States. He knew it was to stop the spread of communism, but the united states was
Radeler and Traci L. Locock conducted their own research. They titled it “Do Executions Lower Homicide Rates?” In 2008 they sent questions to some of the top criminologist and one of the questions found that “eighty-nine percent of the criminologist don’t think that the death penalty is effective.” (Radeler , Locock 2009 pg. 501). The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is one of the key fighters trying to get rid of the death penalty. The ACLU believes that the “state shouldn’t give itself the right to kill human beings especially when it kills with premeditation.” (ACLU The case against the death penalty).
Nicholas Willoughby English Comp I Prof. Cook December 17, 2015 We Cant Eliminate It, But It Can Eliminate Us Gun control has been a hot topic in the past few years. Making guns unavailable is only going to cause more crime. Criminals will not stop trying to get their hands on them, illegal or not. The government should not be able to take away our “freedoms”; gun control is one of them. Choosing to remove our weapons will only make our America a more hostile environment to live.
What person in the right mind could ever do such a thing, and why? To start off, the Moore attempts to put an emphasis on the significance of gun violence on the younger generation of Americans as well as on all citizens of the USA. Throughout the, Moore tries to endeavor the accessibility of guns to Americans and the lack of control over guns that actually leads to all these tragic outcomes (which today, is absolutely ridiculous.)
Joseph Joubert once said that “The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.” If I were to create a Flash Seminar, I would aim the discussion towards understanding, which then can lead to progress in the world. Specifically, understanding about gun violence and steps that can be taken to reduce the amount of victims from it. The sheer prevalence of gun violence in this country is heartbreaking. According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have been 1,516 mass shootings in 1,735 days. Furthermore, not every shooting has a large number of victims.
