This amendment, along with others in the Bill of Rights, were proposed in order to ensure that the people would have the innate rights that everyone should have. They served as a reminder to the government that they recently fought a war to attain these rights and taking them away was not an option. Overall, the second amendment was found to be a necessity throughout the Revolutionary era in matters of not only the Militia, but also as a defensive tactic and symbol of innate liberties for the American
Although just a few cities away in Syracuse there are shootings you hear about everyday with 15 year old kids just because they are trying to have fun. It is ridiculous. We will never be able to keep every single gun and person under control, but if we take more steps into making it our laws in the country more unified, I think the violence rate in the United States will dramatically
The emancipation proclamation was one of the most earth-shattering events for slaves in America. President Abraham Lincoln began a long road to success to abolish slavery in the United States. The Emancipation Proclamation signed on January 1, 1862, did not free all slaves but only applied to the slaves that were in the South and placed not occupied by the federal military forces. The Border States such as Maryland, Kentucky, Delaware, and Missouri have not included Emancipation Proclamation. The order of the president was based on the constitutional authority of the president since the Congress did not pass the law (Carnahan, 2007).
On, February 14, 2018, a mass school shooting in Florida got the nation’s attention, however, gun violence has always been an issue, and it is only getting worse. Now people are saying there needs to be something done, and there are many that agree. Starting off there should be stricter gun laws, because in today’s world it is too easy to get handguns and assault rifles. With, the capabilities a firearm holds, such as taking people’s lives there must be stricter restrictions that could help cut down the gun violence and save lives. Increasing the age of purchasing a firearm would be one step.
it was the first american democracy and it formed the constitution because it was a minnie example of what the gornmeto the new united states The Mayflower Compact shows the idea of Self-Government. Self-government means the Mayflower Compact it show democris as they would always agree on the laws and rules. this means that the people or in that time free white men would vote on dicins and leaters. so ery thing would be fair for them. because they moved to get away from britain and its strict rules and strict unfair leader.
The final act of resistance, before official war, was the battle at Lexington and Concord in 1775. Colonial minute men defended their stash of ammunitions from the British marching to capture it and arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock. This was the first battle of the revolution, but at the time it was simply the last and possibly greatest act of defiance against British orders. It was also the first intentional firefight between British soldiers and colonists. All these acts of colonial resistance were inspired by the colonist's republican
Blacks were not truly free during Reconstruction, because they were required to carry special passes that the whites did not have to and were restricted from having weapons and to rent their own weapons. African Americans were free during Reconstruction, because of the new rights given to them. The first reason to why they were free is from Document A, which shows the 14th Amendment that states anyone born or living in the United States has the right to be a citizen and they cannot be deprived by anyone of life, liberty or property. This represents freedom because no
Even though the 2nd amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms, it was written prior to the technology capable of weapons today. Gun control laws are just as old or older than the Second Amendment (ratified in 1791).A few cases of gun control all through colonial America included criminalizing the exchange of guns to Catholics, slaves, indentured servants, and Native Americans; controlling the capacity of weapon powder in homes; prohibiting stacked weapons in Boston house. As Thomas Jefferson mentioned, "that the earth belongs in usufruct to the living": that the dead have neither powers nor rights over it. This shows us that laws should be for the living not for the dead. As our country evolves so should our laws.
Response: I agree with this statement because it 's too easy for people to blame a celebrity for all of society 's problems. What we should really be doing is looking at how to solve the problems and not who should be to blame. Thesis 3: People who consider themselves second amendment supporters are simple refusing to accept that the laws have to change as society changes. That law was written for a different time and must be changed as the world changes. Response: I disagree with this statement because the second amendment was written very explicitly that it shall never be infringed, and that every american has the right to own a firearm.
The Second Amendment grants U.S citizens the right to bare arms, but it was written in a very different time: there was no police protection, and were no automatic weapons available.”- Is it time to pass tough gun control laws? By McClathy Tribune. People often refer to the Second Amendment when the argument of gun control laws as an excuse to prevent these changes because they believe their right to self-dense with a weapon is a form of government taking over. “There’s also the slippery slope argument. It preys on people’s fears that the government will turn into a dictatorship or completely ban guns…The Founders of our country wanted the people to be able to protect themselves from over powerful governments.” - Is it time to pass tough gun control laws?
Gun Control Are you a person that has, or has ever had possession of a gun? People believe that the United States of America should have gun control. I do not believe that. I believe people should have the right to posses, and bear arms. The Second Amendment of the Constitution clearly states "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Humans having ownership of a gun is a American tradition, thus is older than the country itself, and the second amendment protects this tradition.
When the Bill of rights was written there were no cell phones, the internet or even electricity but have the people changed over the span of years? The Bill of Rights is a basic outline that limits the US government 's power over the citizens of the United States. The Founding Fathers had one thing in mind when they wrote the Bill of Rights; Freedom. They were trying to prevent a government like England that controlled the citizens and did whatever they wanted. If you really look at the bill of rights, it is a vague outline to some of the freedoms that the founding fathers didn’t have before.
