Campus Hate Speech Should NOT Be Regulated

- In recent years, a rise in verbal abuse and violence directed at people of color, lesbians, and gay men, and other historically persecuted groups has plagued the United States. Among the settings of these expressions of intolerance are college and university campuses, where bias incidents have occurred sporadically since the mid-1980's. Outrage, indignation and demands for change are the responses to these incidents - understandably, given the lack of racial and social diversity among students, faculty and administrators on most campuses....   [tags: Argumentative Essay]

Abortion: Women Need a Choice

- Our Nation was built on the ideas of freedom and independence. With that concept, I believe that our government needs to trust that women have the capability to choose what is best for their future. Our society should respect women’s independence and grant them the freedom to decide what is right. This issue is important to me because history has shown that restricting abortions, not only undermines women, but can also be very dangerous. I believe that the government should not be able to control what a woman does with her body....   [tags: Argumentative]

Argumentative Essay: Handgun Ownership Should Not be Banned

- Should handgun ownership be banned. I don't believe so. You would think America would learn from examples from other countries. When you take away handguns the crime rate rises. American citizens need to know their rights, responsibilities and safety of owning a handgun. The second amendment says, "A well regulated militia being necessary to security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." The second amendment was made for two things. It is there for first, to guarantee the individuals right to have arms for self-defense and self-preservation....   [tags: Gun Control Essays]

Argumentative Essay: Gun Control Violates The Second Amendment of the Constitution

- The U.S. should not have gun control laws. The Second Amendment to the Constitution states that, “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.” This amendment has been around since 1791, and there has been gun control almost as long as it's been around. The National Rifle Association is an advocate of the Second Amendment and an opponent of those who propose restrictions on guns.

Argumentative Essay: Guns Make America!

-         With the possible exception of abortion, no other current issue has split the country in two like the debate surrounding gun control.   Both sides are equally adamant.   The pro gun side, as represented by the National Rifle Association, continues to oppose all gun control measures primarily on the grounds that any law restricting gun ownership is unconstitutional.   Proponents of gun control argue that gun violence is an epidemic out of control across the country, and call on federal lawmakers to stem the flow of blood with anti-gun legislation.   This side won a crucial battle in the debate two years ago with the passage of the so called  “Brady Bill,” Federal legislation...   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essays]

Should Workers Be Allowed To Strike? - Argumentative Essay

- It is difficult to see how anyone could deny that all workers should have the rights to strike. This is because striking gives workers freedom of speech. This is justifiable, because Britain is a democratic nation. My first reason supporting the motion that workers should be allowed to strike is in order to bring to the fore poor safety conditions. For instance, in the nuclear power industry, any breaches of safety can have tragic consequences. If the employees are exposed to nuclear material, this could lead to serious illnesses such as cancer, leukaemia and radiation sickness....   [tags: essays research papers]

There are valid arguments for the various racially "isolated" clubs in that they provide a support network and common identity for students who might otherwise feel culturally marooned on a campus as large as ours.

However, new attorney general John Ashcroft was an outspoken critic of the Reno opinion when he served in the U.S. Senate.

That same vernacular is being censored some one hundred and twenty seven years later, by a publishing company named NewSouth Books, who has released a version of the novel that replaces the amply used word, 'nigger', with what they believe to be less offensive in the word, 'slave'....   [tags: argumentative]
