Be that as it may, some people say the 2nd Amendment is outdated and has outlived its usefulness. They believe that it is outdated and not needed anymore. It does not protect an individual’s right to “keep and bear arms”(Shmoop Editorial Team). It has nothing to do with individual rights. The 2nd Amendment has virtually no contemporary significance. In addition, some say that states should have the ability to decide the laws they want around guns instead of having a national standard 2nd amendment “need for well - regulated militias as evidence of anachronism” (Staff,NPR). As well of this, they say the government should have stricter control over firearms. The government should keep an eye out for people who have guns in their possession because they can make many mistakes and problems with firearms. For example, in Sandy Hooks an unknown person invaded a school and killed about 26 people in total. Officials claim that the intruder had three guns and shot at anyone mercilessly. (Sandy Hooks Elementary Shooting). No one knows where he obtained these weapons but in any case, having three is still a crime. It is understandable that humans fear the sight and touch of guns and weapons because of the stories they heard on the radio or TV. But even so, if these weapons can save lives, why not use them for good instead of storing and taking them away from the peop...
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. Amendment II
The people of the United States of America are given special rights that are guaranteed in the Constitution - The Supreme Law of the Land. The Second Amendment of the Constitution declares, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of the free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." People may have this right, however advocates of gun control believe guns are too risky.

Professional champions of civil rights and civil liberties have been unwilling to defend the underlying principle of the right to arms. Even the conservative defense has been timid and often inept, tied less, one suspects, to abiding principle and more to the dynamics of contemporary Republican politics. Thus a right older than the Republic, one that the drafters of two constitutional amendments the Second and the Fourteenth intended to protect, and a right whose critical importance has been painfully revealed by twentieth-century history, is left undefended by the lawyers, writers, and scholars we routinely expect to defend other constitutional rights. Instead, the Second Amendment’s intellectual as well as political defense has been left in the unlikely hands of the National Rifle Association (NRA). And although the NRA deserves considerably better than the demonized reputation it has acquired, it should not be the sole or even principal voice in defense of a major constitutional provision.
The National Rifle Association published “Anti-gun groups…” by Jim Pate on their website. This article quite obviously presents a strongly conservative view as would be expected from the NRA on issue of tougher gun control laws. Since it is published on the National Rifle Association’s website, Pate is able to use an aggressive approach to the issue, which is effective because his audience agrees with his views against stricter gun control. Pate also incorporates strong pathos into this article through his word choice, which he uses to arouse negative emotions in the reader toward advocates of gun control. He weaves a great deal of logos into his writing as well by citing many facts and m...
In the United States there are many issues under hot debate. Some people are so set in their belief on a subject that they won’t even consider an opposing argument. Gun control is third on the list of subjects in which people are not willing to listen to the opposition’s argument. One side of the gun control argument is that we need more gun control. The opposing side says we don’t need stronger laws, or we need fewer laws. My stand on the argument is that we do not need stronger gun control laws. The thesis of this paper will focus on the argument against tougher gun laws. The anti thesis will focus on the opposition’s belief that there should be stronger gun control laws. Finally, the synthesis will focus on refuting the arguments put forth in the antithesis.

Abortions are wrong morally for many people. People of religious faith generally are against it. According to a survey conducted on January 16, 2013, Pew Research states, “American Baptist, Catholicism, The church of The Latter Day Saints, Episcopal Church and Hinduism are the major religions that are one-hundred percent against abortion” (Pew Research). Of the religions above Catholicism is number one and Hinduism is number three, “Christianity has over twenty-one billion followers and Hinduism has eight hundred and fifty-one million people” (Info Please), meaning almost two point two billion people between those two religions are against abortion. Canada just recently allowed to have abortions, “then our Supreme Court threw it out completly in 1988” (Pro Choice Action Network). Most people don’t like how irresponsible abortions are, you participated in sex therefore you should have to handle all the responsibilities. More people today are Pro Life, “Fifty percent of Americans now call themselves ‘Pro Life’” (Saad). “With exception to rape, abortion is illegal in almost half the countries world-wide” (Pregnant Pause). “The Pro Choice side is down from 47% to 4...
Abortion is the termination of a fetus or embryo from the uterus. They can sometimes happen without warning, more commonly known as a miscarriage. There is also induced abortion; which is a very controversial topic. Although the advocates of abortion claim it can save a mother’s life and prevent prolonged suffering, opponents contend abortion damages the women’s body, physically and psychologically, and that abortion contradicts many religious ethics.
Abortions definition is “An induced expulsion of the human fetus”. History says that women have been helping each other abort since before the 18th century. Abortion has a side of two choices Pro-Choice or Pro-life. Pro-Choice states to claim that women have the right to do whatever they want to do with their body, Pro-Life states that contend personhood begins at conception, so to the Pro-Life abortion is an immoral killing of an innocent human being. My side would have to be Pro-Life, I believe that if you didn't want a child people shouldn't be having sexual interactions. I can understand that if it was a bad situation and people didn't know who to get out of it, but I think it would be so much better if people took that bad situation and turned it into a good

In the Upfront debate “ Why We’re Still Arguing About Gun Control?” (2017) Patricia Smith challenges the readers to consider that there is two sides to the argument about gun control after the tragic incidents that have happened but it's all comes down to the second amendment. Smith believes that the debates really hit the center core when it comes to the discussion of the second admented an “individual’s right to bear arms or just the peoples collective right”. Smiths’ purpose is to let people know that there will always have different views when it comes to guns and in order to understand people need to see both sides. Smiths’ targets people who are concerned citizens by letting them know that there is two sides to the problems.
The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution 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.
Central in the arguments against gun control is its ability to restrict any citizen of the United States the right to own guns which is protected under the constitution. Specifically, due recognition is made to its connection to the 2nd Amendment wherein it seeks to protect the individual liberties of people. This facet also applies to gun ownership regardless of the original objective and intention. “The second amendment from the Bill of Rights grants private citizens the right to bear arms. Thus, people who stand firmly against gun control insist that no legislation, technically, should have the right to take away a citizen’s guns without first repealing the amendment in question” (Groberman 1). A good approach to consider in highlighting this part comes from depriving the citizen of his basic right on the basis of specific presumption that it would be used for violence or crim...
