I believe President Barrack Obama and the political parties including the Republican, Democratic Party, and the Libertarian Parties wants to protect the second amendments. The right of the people to keep and bear arms. The recent shooting that took 14 lives in San Bernardino, California would have not been protected by Senator Diane Feinstein (D) amendment to prevent individuals on the terror watch list from purchasing firearms and Senator Joe Manchin (D) amendment to impose universal background check and universal gun registries on law abiding citizens. President Obama 's proposal to tighten background check would not keep guns from the criminals. Obama has frequently called for tougher gun laws, including after a recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California. The guns used in the mass shooting were purchased legally, and it 's unlikely the proposal being considered by the White House would have prevented the shooters from acquiring weapons.
Upon reading several articles in the newspaper about gun control and all the amendment that the president and congress are trying to pass, I personally agree that we need to improve the background check for people that wants to acquire. Senator Susan Collins, has a good point she favors reviving the Manchin-Toomey gun background check legislation. “There is widespread support for background checks and for strengthening the gun trafficking laws,” she said. “The problem with these mass shootings, which seem to be happening with increasing frequency, is too often we propose either more restrictions on gun ownership or more background checks for gun purchasers, versus mental health reform — when in fact we need both. This is what I would propose and like to see happening and agreed in t...

...d for the “Die Hard” movie series, has said. “If you take guns from the legal gun owners, then the only people who have guns are the bad guys”. How awful would that be if the majority of the gun owners will be the bad guys. I know a lot of the citizens own guns for many purposes some used it for sports, for hunting, for protection, and some used it to hurt people and to operate illegal businesses. This country will always have citizen that will not be willing to give up their guns because giving up their weapon will be giving up their rights. Majority of citizens in this country who have store up a lot of weapons and ammunition its sole purpose is to protect this country. They will be no doubt that they will take down any attacks that will come in to our nation. America will remain strong and powerful due to our freedom to bare firearms with no limitations.

- In the United States, the subject of same sex marriage has been a legal and cultural debate since the early 1970’s when the Supreme Court dismissed Baker v. Nelson one of only three cases brought by same sex couples against the state of Minnesota for denying them a marriage license. Over the next three years, various levels in the judicial system deny several other cases seeking validation for same sex marriages across the country. In 1996, President Bill Clinton signs the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defines marriage as the union between a man and a woman thus restricting all legal protections and responsibilities to heterosexual couples....

- The 2008 Presidential Primaries saw a variety of candidates who believed they had the right stuff but it really came down to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as Presidential candidates for the Democratic Party and John Mc Cain and Mitt Romney were candidates for the Republican Party. But before I address this, I would be careless not to address issues that I believe affected how the Democratic Party was perceived during the 2008 primaries. When John Edwards who was holding himself up to be holier than thou was found to be having an ongoing affair with a woman who worked for him as a Graphic Designer, his behavior proved that you can rarely trust some politicians or take them at their word....

Having thought that getting individual health insurance was easy, she naïvely decided to get her family health insurance. She discussed with the insurance broker for options, filled out a very long application, yet only to find a rejection letter came in the mailbox. So, why was she denied. Was it because her long lists of ailments.... [tags: Health Insurance, Barack Obama]

- Barack Hussein Obama was elected the 44th president of the United States on Tuesday, sweeping away the last racial barrier in American politics with ease as the country chose him as its first black chief executive. Mr. Obama’s election amounted to a national catharsis — a repudiation of a historically unpopular Republican president and his economic and foreign policies, and an embrace of Mr. Obama’s call for a change in the direction and the tone of the country. But it was just as much a strikingly symbolic moment in the evolution of the nation’s fraught racial history, a breakthrough that would have seemed unthinkable just two years ago....

- Though there are five Democratic candidates officially running in the Presidential primaries, two of the candidates consistently come out on top of the Democratic polls, no matter whether the polls numbers come from a specific state poll or a national poll: Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. It seems highly likely that one of these two candidates will be the Democratic nominee in the general election in November 2016. Therefore it is essential to understand their backgrounds, their policies, and their funding sources in order to make a decision about which would be the better candidate to oppose whichever Republican candidate is selected to run in the general election....

- Color derives from the Latin word colas, which means "a covering" (Lawrence 291). This makes sense because color is something that gives definition to something and gives it a wrapping. For example if someone is colorblind their world is covered by grey, which means technically they are seeing color but just not in the sense normally thought (Stein 291). When normal people see color, the world is seen as having a bright, vibrant, dark, dreary or a combination of coatings to create a stunning effect (Jewell 167)....
