    1,071 words
    Following the tragedy of April 20, 1999, when Dylan Kleibold and Eric Harris opened fire inside of their high school in Littleton, Colorado killing fifteen people, there is finally an agreement that there clearly needs to be something done about guns. Trent Lott, R-Miss., wanted the senate to debate on new firearm restrictions (Austin 18-3). He chose to use a revised juvenile crime bill (S 254). This bill had eight proposals including a ban on gun sales over the Internet, an increase in the mini...
  • Tougher Gun Control Laws
    748 words
    The question of weather or not to have tougher gun control laws is a major issue for the American society. Violence with guns in the United States seems to be ever growing. Gun violence claims the lives of an estimated 34,000 Americans each year. It is evident that some people should just not have the right, or privilege to own a gun.

Warren Cassidy argues that "The American people have a right 'to keep and bear arms'. This right is protected by the Second Amendment to the Const...
  • The Individual Sale Of Guns
    520 words
    An Abused Freedom The Second Amendment, I believe, has been over-stretched and misrepresented by gun lobbyists such as the National Rifle Association (NRA) for years. They always hide behind the Second Amendment saying that this freedom is what our country was built upon. In a recent article in Newsweek magazine, the executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, Wayne LaPierre, stated, the real target is the Second Amendment. I don t think it has anything to do with crime or stoppi...
