Laws against theft will not apply to a person who plans to steal, in the same way laws against murder will not apply to a depressed person who wants to kill himself while taking down as many people as he can. Criminals will therefore still get a gun illegally and would not be worried about breaking the law on guns. A law abiding person on the other hand will not be able to buy a gun legally and would therefore not have the best option for self-defense if there was a gun ban. When people will have less self-defense forms, they will be more susceptible to violence. The gun ban will in turn give more leverage to the criminal than it would to the
The Death Penalty The world can be a dark, cruel place to live in , it seems like everyday a horrendous crime is committed like murder, kidnaping and rape. These crimes are enough proof that there is enough evil in the world. It is necessary that society has the death penalty to prevent the possibility of recurrence. If murderers are sentenced to death and executed, potential murderers will think twice before killing for fear of losing their own life.The death penalty should be allowed because it is important to show other criminals that it is not okay for their horrendous acts they are committing and that they should be punished for their actions. Some may argue that the death penalty should not be allowed because it does not help prevent
By not allowing transgender soldiers to server is discrimination. We have laws that prevents discrimination, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. This law protects people from being discriminated against based on race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, physical disability, and age. Being transgender is under the category of sexual orientation, so by not allowing them the serve for our country is wrong. "Any American who wants to serve our country and is able to meet the standards should have the opportunity to do so" said by Republican Senator
But some libertarians would ask why even have any form of government. If government is so greedy and evil, why have a government at all? Richard A Garner (2009) said “Government is evil, but it is a necessary evil to protect the citizens in a given geographical location” (p.1) Yes, government is evil in certain ways, but it is vital to protect the citizens from harm. For example, who is going to stop a drink manufacturer from putting bleach in their drink if there is no government to stop them? If there was no government to protect us in trade, and from crime, we could not live peacefully.
Therefore, they are always ready to scoff at anyone trying to control gun ownership. This makes us wonder why people can be so defensive over something like a gun that is so dangerous and has lead to a lot of deaths in the American society. Gun control is essential in our society today because it will help prevent unnecessary shootings and crime rate Gun control will play a major part in the decrease of the crime and murder rate. Therefore, in my point of view, guns should be totally controlled and regulated by the government. If gun ownership is controlled by the government, only a limited number of people will be allowed to own guns.
Even though there are many people claims that banning smoking in the public will bring many benefits to the society, however, this statement is only up to a certain extent. In fact, there are many arguments that disagree with the legalisation of banning smoking in the public area. Banning smoking would infringe a person’s choice and right and affect the business and economy of a country. The government should not implement the smoking ban in the public it is because banning smoking is an act of infringing a person’s choice and right. The government should not regulate a person’s choice and right just because smoking is harmful.
In order for this law to be reinforced, there would have to be some sort of punishment if somebody does not cast their vote (Bargmann).Why should a law abiding citizen be penalized for not wanting to have a say in the way their government is lead? There needs to be a shift in the way elections are held so that voting is more convenient to the average American citizen, and so no one is scrutinized for their choice of not expressing their opinion. Compulsory voting should not be required because it would be violating freedom of choice, which would lead in people casting random votes, and there are superior ways of getting people to vote than forcing them to. Requiring American citizens to vote is a violation of freedom of choice, and the way a person can express their opinion. If they are forced to speak their opinion, they could randomly select a candidate, which would sway the election.
What many people do not understand is that gun control laws do not necessarily mean making guns illegal and banned from the possession of all citizens. If the laws in place now were followed and enforced the way that they were intended to be, then a stricter policy would not have been needed. By educating gun owners on how to safely use their weapons, many of the casualties coming from guns can be eliminated. If the appropriate steps are taken and we follow the laws meant to protect us, then certain bans and restrictions will not be necessary, and the number of gun homicides in our country would drastically
And should homosexuals hide what they are for the stake of their country? Some people might say that gay marriage is harmful whether it is because it denies the children a mother and a father or it violates the natural law or it is against religion or many other reasons. However, the law is put into place to protect people and not to enforce a certain religion or follow a certain agenda. Many children are raised by single parents or are orphans that are raised by family member which proves that family comes in different shapes. Overall, gay marriage is not harming anyone so why is it still illegal
If the justice system is trying to stop others from killing then they shouldn’t partake in the same killing process by executing someone. Murderers don’t always think about the range of punishments for murdering someone when they commit a crime. The law needs to inject fear in the minds of the criminals or murderers and discourage them from actually committing crime. We don’t just need something for the sake of it, we need something that actually deters crime and death penalty really isn’t one of them. Death penalty has been in practice for a very long time, even way back in history when people were not as developed as today and this itself shows that death penalty is not an effective deterrent for crime because the number of crimes and criminals in jails have increased immensely in today’s
