Informative Speech For Gun Ownership

- Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used and that definite rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of the citizen to bear arms is just one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible. -Hubert Humphrey, 1960 My background is probably atypical for a somewhat high-profile supporter of the right to keep and bear arms....   [tags: essays research papers]

Informative Essay: Gene Therapy

-    Gene therapy has become an exciting and controversial issue on the scientific and medical horizon. Science offers new technologies that, in the future, will be able to treat and cure common genetically passed diseases. However, as it is an extremely broad subject, some time must be dedicated to its interpretation and explanation. First, a general definition of gene therapy is required. Genethics, the Clash between the New Genetics and Human Values, by David T. Suzuki and Peter Knudtson, defines gene therapy as "the medical replacement or repair of defective or faulty genes in living human cells." It is not really so elementary as the definition would imply....   [tags: Genetic Engineering]

Social psychology seems to have many origins; critically discuss the historical and philosophical roots of modern social psychology

- There are many explanations for the origins of modern social psychology. It is therefore important to consider that social psychology cannot be traced back to one single source of origin (Burr, 2003). Hence, this is the reason why there are debates of what social psychology is. Allport (1985) described social psychology as “the study of people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours which are influenced by the actual, imagines, or implied presence of others”. As seen from this definition there is a direct link between social science and the individual psychology (Sewel, 1989)....   [tags: Informative]

And if so do laws placing restrictions on firearm ownership and use stop the crime or protect the citizens. These are the questions many citizens and lawmakers are asking themselves when setting about to create gun control laws. The debate over gun control, however, is nothing new. In 1924, Presidential Candidate, Robert La Follete said, “our choice is not merely to support or oppose gun control but to decide who can own which guns under what conditions.” Clearly this debate still goes on today and is the very reason for the formation of gun control laws....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essays]

The Black Plague Was Non-discriminatory.

- “To put matters simply, it [the plague] did not spare those of any age or fortune,” (15). With this account, Nicephorus Gregoras, in my opinion, impeccably sums up The Black Death: The Great Mortality of 1348-1350. A large percentage of the contributors to John Aberth’s book of documents acknowledge that the plague did not discriminate against any person or group of persons. For this reason, I consider the overall sense of what the plague meant to the people of the mid 1300s to be a looming understanding that the plague could not be avoided, no matter how wealthy, powerful, or religious a person claimed to be....   [tags: informative]
