So to wrap up my point of view on band control, I just have one last quote that sums up my argument “guns don’t kill people, people do.” In order to reduce the level of violence in a society we ought to look at the social aspects in that particular area, rather than in the gun control laws. Most of the violence in the United States arises in areas where the high school drop-outs are high, in places were job opportunities are lacking, and in places with crime activities around it. So the government should first address the social problems that interrelate with violence, such as lack of education, and I believe those steps would bring a safer environment for the community rather than a full communist movement of disarming the people.
While the writer is an advocate of gun control laws, the literature demonstrates all too clearly that creating, passing and enforcing such laws is difficult, and... ... middle of paper ... ...owning family. As we just saw in McConnell's piece, in fact, many if not most American gun-owners do support some form of gun control laws which try to prevent the use of firearms by criminals or those with mental problems. The question, as with all laws, is determining precisely what measures will prevent such use of firearms, without infringing improperly on the rights of law-abiding Americans to own firearms. This debate rages in part because there is much emotion on both sides of the argument. Gun-control advocates seek to quell firearms-related violence with laws.
We will discuss this issue, touch on present public opinion and political so-cialization pertaining to gun control, and the possible outcomes that may occur. The issue of gun control has become a popular debate in the United States due to high crime volume throughout the nation. Unfortunately, more emphasis is put on this topic whenever acts of gun violence occur. As a result of this violence, the public has developed two distinct groups, pro-gun and anti-gun. Those for increased gun-control do not believe that the state and federal government enforce enough policies for control, are pro-gun control.
Our country has gone centuries with this law standing its place in the Constitution, so I wouldn’t agree with getting rid of it when statistics show we’re more likely to go downhill then up. In my perspective, when you give someone a gun in order to protect themselves, they will understand the meaning of that gun. When you take away someone’s firearms when dealing with someone who does have a firearm, in my opinion, that person will beg you for a gun. The right to bear arms is a very protective, yet dangerous amendment, but in order to keep our homeland safe, sometimes those types of decisions must be made. The controversy over our right to bear arms will most likely remain active for the time being, and that’s understandable, but hopefully our government and majority of our society realizes the bigger picture
In America, the law is extremely strict with the policy of being 21 or older to have the right to drink. I feel that age is not very necessary when it comes to limitations on drinking. The drinking age should be lowered to a younger age if not lifted all together. I believe that a positive results will come from the drinking age being dropped. In this paper I am going to defend why there should not be a drinking age, because I believe that it is essential to help solve the underage drinking problems we have in our nation.

When reading the book Interracial Communication Theory into Practice I, found that Stand point theory is based around one’s perceptions of the world being, largely influenced by social group membership. Our life experiences are shaped by interaction with other cultures and social groups such a race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, and so on (Orbe, Harris 12). The two author’s research exemplifies that your experience with any race or culture effects how you view them. Another idea related to stand point theories is that social location shape people lives (12). “In simple terms, this concept helps people understand that a person’s racial/ethnic identity influences how that person experiences, perceives, and comes to understand the world around him or her “(12).
Gun Control in the United States Gun control is a very heated issue within the country. There are advocates for both sides for wanting stricter gun control and less gun control. Firearms are such a big part of American history that it has been included in our constitution as one of our inalienable rights. The people who want stricter gun control believe that making it harder to get guns and limiting the types of guns people can use makes everyone safer since there’s less firearms in the public. Those who want more lax gun laws believe that it acts as a deterrent and as a safety measure to protect innocent citizens and themselves.
Also gun control has been proven in many ways that it does not reduce violence or crime. Gun control should be important to many people because it can help a country but in some cases it does not always help. Therefore people need to stop blaming gun control for everything and start taking into consideration that gun control is not the only factor in violence and crime. Gun control is important because it gives a citizen the right to be free and own a gun but when that citizen decides to not follow the law then he/she will have to deal with a punishment but the other citizens will have to hear about it and this will tempt governments to increase gun control laws and the more that gun control laws increase, as proven, gun related death rates will happen more and more. As you can see gun control is viewed as being a good law but others oppose and say that gun control does not reduce
Some think they affect life in a positive way and that we should have the right but at the same time, the other side of the debate, they say that we need more gun control. So what is more correct, gun rights or gun control? In this paper I will discuss the history of the gun law, if citizens have the right to own guns, how guns are
