This is a supreme and exquisite irony, given the conservative and ... ... middle of paper ... ...'t need nuclear weapons to achieve the feared results; the U.S. already has the high murder statistics to prove it with handguns alone. The argument is also strange because the gun lobby fervently hopes to avoid public mobilization on a constitutional amendment limiting the right to keep and bear arms. A huge majority of Americans favor stricter gun control laws; and as long as they're excluding nuclear weapons they might as well throw in assault weapons and Saturday Night Specials. But ultimately, calling for a constitutional amendment banning the ownership of nuclear weapons is moot. Individuals do not even have a guaranteed right to keep and bear firearms, much less modern military weapons.
America is changing, the country that once was based on religious ideas is slowly becoming history, to the point that we can lose all traces of the America that was founded in 1776. As the days continue there is a continuous battle over the public possessing guns. A large portion believes and supports laws preventing civilians from owning military style rifles. With the growing support, these supports are trying to get guns all together out of the hands of people. With the recent mass shootings, Sandy Hook, Aurora, Colorado, and Virginia Tech, causing big support of these laws, many people fear that losing guns to the government will allow for criminals to do anything they want because civilians wont have a way to protect themselves.
What’s sad is that, all the blames went to the guns, not the shooters, but the guns! The government and the media kept giving out the wrong information to our society. They made guns the enemy in the public’s eyes, but in reality it’s the shooters state of mind. Recently, the Obama administration and the government leaders are trying to pass laws pertaining to gun control. They believe that by doing this, crimes would perish, and the wounds of the victims would mend; but they’re wrong.
The same thing happened in Turkey in 1915, Germany during the holocaust, China during the reign of Mao Zedong, and many other countries in the 20th century. Even in modern Germany, a nation with very strict laws about gun control, cannot stop from sociopaths from deciding one day to go out and kill a bunch of people.

With the army at its fingertips, we wouldn’t stand a chance. Gun control isn’t about guns, it’s about control, and if we feel that the government has turned in “Big Brother” we should be able to overthrow the people controlling us.
The use of arms however is the last option reserved for when all other attempts at the preservation of liberty have failed. Today we live in a much different world than that of our founders. The rise of the United States into world dominance, the shift of population into the cities, and the increase of drug use and violence have produced great change in our society. Americans once feared the loss of the free state would come from foreign invasion or political corruption, but now the greatest threat is the violence we see on the evening news. The increase in violence and murder has sparked the greatest debate over gun ownership in our nation's history.
In the United States of America, there is much debate about the effectiveness and practicality of concealed firearms. Many citizens today are trying to support their claim with old, outdated evidence and targeted research to attempt to prove a point, but can not escape the truth. Although Concealed firearms may sound appealing to reduce crime rates and stop violence, new evidence suggests otherwise. Recently there has been trends of certain lunatics who own guns that decide to shoot innocent people, justifying the need for more strict gun control laws. The purpose of this paper is to educate and inform about the immensely important topic of concealed firearms, with focus on what effect it has on society and crime rates.
There is plenty example of historical events in the past which are a proof that power-holders and absolute power-holders corrupt the social order. The most known event is the Holocaust, also known as Shoah. As mentioned before, 6 million Jewish were murdered by a powerful people, Hitler was a dictator so that he could make his army whatever he wants. This kind of huge power causes a lot of people death. Hitler is not only example for this kind of dictator, even in our modern world, there are plenty of leaders who made a lot of people suffer from them not only their nationalities.
National ID card The attack on the World Trade Center on September 11th struck us hard, both physically and emotionally. We as a nation held back and keep our hearts high for soon one day we will forget what has happened and hope that one day we can look back upon this tragedy as a mistake of our carelessness. Today we look upon what we can do to improve and repair our mistakes that once had a big impact on our nation. Our nation’s government has proposed a system to detect such terrorist from entering the country and to help to stop future attacks that would arise in the hereby future. The government had an idea that if we were to carry around such an item that... ... middle of paper ... ...tion”.
Piers Morgan, a British journalist with his own show on CNN, argued for more gun control in the country on his last show airing. Morgan was a gun control advocate, and managed to make himself even more unpopular with a large amount of Americans. Morgan chided the National Rifle Association
Economic Sanctions in Iraq From all of the turmoil in the Persian Gulf, the most controversial issue is certainly the economic sanctions imposed upon Iraq. These sanctions, constructed by the United States and supported by the United Nations, were meant to target Saddam Hussein and his regimes, but they have had tremendous and terrible effects on the civilian population of the country. Although their purposes were originally sound and honorable, the sanctions that were imposed upon Iraq have caused hundreds of thousands of deaths throughout that nation, and their legitimacy and necessity are a worldwide topic of speculation. A change is regulation is far past due. The United States and United Nations must revamp their policies to save the lives of the remaining Iraqi citizens and to more exclusively target the Iraqi government, if they will not lift the current sanctions completely.
