Books are an essential way to gain knowledge whether they are controversial or not. Thousands of books have been banned from public libraries and schools due to being deemed ‘inappropriate’ by parents, administrators, or religious leaders. Whether Americans should ban books in public libraries and schools is an often debated topic. This censorship of books is dangerous, as it restricts the American people's’ ability to access information, leaving Americans ignorant. Historically, banning books is not a new practice.
There has always been an uproar on whether we should ban guns or not. Paul Waldman wrote a passage on how he is for banning guns. Even with multiple pros on banning guns, there is also numerous cons with banning guns, that is why Shiha Dalmia wrote an article against banning guns. Paul Waldman explains in his passage that he wants to at least put a ban on guns in private hands. Unfortunately, Paul knows that there is no possible way to ban all guns in private hands even if the state tried to ban them.
Banned books are books that have been deemed illegal for one reason or another by a governing body or religious institution. Books can be banned nationwide or locally. Sometimes, books are banned from just one school district. These bans start off as challenges to the books. Anyone can challenge a book if they think that it is
The general arguments made by Paul Waldman in his work, “The Case For Banning Guns,” and by Shikha Dalmia in her work, “The Case Against Banning Guns,” is that there have been numerous issues arising in America due to a national debate about gun control. Both authors state their personal opinions about whether or not guns should be permanently banned, regulated, or even if the problem is not the gun, but the person who pulls the trigger. They each provide various examples and briefly mention a few past mass shootings to support their beliefs on this tragic topic. Beginning with Waldman’s argument, he believes that almost all guns should be banned. Although he knows that this task is impossible, he thinks that America would be a far better society without them.
People tend to get tangled in opinions and quotes on rather semi-automatic weapons should be banned or not, such as if they are protected by the second amendment, halting lawmakers from banning them. However, let there be no mistake that these weapons are a life threat to civilians. The amount of semi-automatic guns in the U.S. puts a shockingly large price on the cost the government would pay to buy all the semi-automatic rifles back. A fairly large amount of guns exist in the United States and of that amount, about a third are assault weapons. “A November 2012 Congressional Research Service report found that, as of 2009, there were approximately 310 million firearms in the United States: ‘114 million handguns, 110 million rifles, and 86 million shotguns.’” (Peters).
On one topic you have the books in Fahrenheit 451, on the other you have the ones in MAS, these are key factor in both, but the similarities are few. On one hand we have books just like fahrenheit and we both use books to express our views on the world. As you could tell they were quite basic similarities, but the differences go deeper. First off books in Fahrenheit are ILLEGAL and must be burned and in MAS they are not, “Do you ever read any of the books you burn?”
There is at least 300 books banned a year for foul language, but don’t you think that an invasion of the authors freedom of press and an invasion of children 's first amendment as well? So I think that books should not be banned. I have three main idea the first on is that the books can be about history and they have some language back then that was fine but is not fine today. The second reason is that libraries should be able to hold all types of books but have an age restricted area. The last reason is that it will get rid of children’s first amendment, and the authors first right as well.
that the controversy regarding the ban is just a smokescreen as the tobacco industry would have been notified about the law months before it came under public scrutiny.

Gulchin Ismayilova June 15, 2015 WRIT 101 Argumentative essay Outline/ final draft Banning Religious Symbols in Public Buildings Some European countries like Belgium and France have voted to forbid Islamic symbols-hijab, nigab, the burka and other headscarves in public buildings. The first country where these symbols were banned was Belgium. Numerous districts of this country have been preventing these attributes to be promoted in public places.

Obviously enough, in the most cases, historians are not the direct reporters of past events, because there is no way to revisit the specific period of time; but, rather, historians use primary and secondary sources in order to report the historical event. As a result, Davis is exposed to stinging attack from Robert Finlay. He reviews Davis 's book in his article on The Refashioning of Martin Guerre by criticizing her method in writing the story as a historical work. For him, Davis’s treatment of Martin’s story is not a historical work, but rather fiction. Primarily, Finlay focuses on his criticism on Davis’s imagination of reconstructing of the Martin Guerre’s story in order to make a dramatized story.
Book banning is not as common as it is made out to be in the U.S., but it does put a restriction the constitution’s first amendment. To ban a book, in the U.S., from a public or school libraries, for offensive content, a challenge must be made against the book. A challenge can be made by anyone but of the challenges made between “1990 and 2000, there were 6,364 challenges reported...sixty percent were reported by parents, fifteen percent by patrons and nine percent by administrators” (Schools and censorship: Banned Books).

Burning all Books but Saving One Word In an alternate future, where books were banned, and I could only save one book, I would actually only choose to save one word. The Word. I would preserve The Word of God; The Bible. Although it is not filled with complete scientific or mathematical knowledge or truths, it is full of religious truths. In Fahrenheit 451, as the books become less and less present in society, so does religion.
