Gun Control On December 15th, 1791 our Second Amendment right was adopted. As stated in our Bill of Rights, "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." The right to bear arms is a right that every American deserves to have to protect themselves and to serve their families. However there are many that believe that because of mindless acts of violence that guns are to blame. The ill minded should not be the cause of the abiding citizens of America to lose their rights.
This paper will analyze the role that NATO played in ending the Cold War according to the different international relation perspectives and the effect that the Cold War had on the different theoretical perspectives. Realism, one of the oldest and most fundamental perspectives of international relations focuses on a states material power in regards to the rest of the international system. According to realists, one of the main ways that a state is able to retain and protect its material power is through balancing. Steven Walt, a realist scholar claims that the balance of threat insinuates that states form alliances in order to protect themselves from other states that not only have greater power but also have a higher level of perceived threat due to various factors (Walt, 1985). Realists view NATO as a military alliance that was established out of the need for the

"We can be sure that a top priority of the Founding Fathers of America was protecting each citizen_Ñés freedom of speech. After all, the very first amendment made to the Constitution was designed specifically to protect this fundamental right. As President George Washington so wisely stated, _ÑÒIf the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter._Ñù It is clear that our nation_Ñés first president understood the importance of having the freedom of speech and its capacity to embolden and define the very character of a nation. I suspect that if President Washington lived today in this age of the internet and social media, he would agree that the importance of protecting this freedom is even greater now than it was in his time. Upholding the freedom of speech, though, requires that responsibility and restraint be practiced by the government, the people, and the individual.
Even defensively motivated efforts by states to provide for their own security through armaments, alliances, and deterrent threats are often perceived as threatening and lead to counter-actions and conflict spirals that are difficult to reverse.” This is exactly what happened in WWI. Even the defensive actions of Britain and France to maintain the status quo were misinterpreted as offensive actions, which reinforced the security dilemma. At its core, the realist theory argues that the distribution of power within a system, and the actions taken to balance this power, is the primary factor in shaping international

Despite the differences on each side, the second amendment aids in the protection of all individual rights of the people to keep and bear arms for self defense when necessary. As a result, the definition of the right to bear arms has to be provided. The second amendment is quite a chicanery clause to understand, the first part of the clause stated “ a well-regulated militia.” “Well regulated…” was defined in the eighteenth century as properly but, not overly regulated (Roleff 69).
To most, the mere mention of the word ‘military’ sends an image of wars, terrorism, or maybe Titanium song by David Guetta instantly glimpsed in their thought which portrayed some words in the lyrics such as bullets, ricochet, stone hard and machine gun. In real life, military service that was conducted by the sovereign can be viewed in multiple aspects and point of view from the citizen’s lenses. Military service cannot be judged by citizens in a narrow scope as a harsh training only. It is time to change this mentality by making military service as a must. Hence, military service should be made compulsory to the Malaysian citizen from the age of 18 as it would make citizen strong and fit, understand that military service strengthen the citizenship and help to protect the national security.
