    1,201 words
    A constitutional Right? Carl T Bogus, the author of a 1992 article", The Strong Case for Gun Control", explains to the reader of the importance and relevance of tougher and more strict gun control laws in local governments today. Bogus begins by telling of the recent rise in school shootings and violent crimes in the united states. He explains that in 1998, more than four thousand children were killed by guns, and it took a string of school related shootings to bring that fact to the attention o...
  • Gun Control

    Issue: Should A National Gun Control Policy Be Established Americans participated in a great debate through the 60's, 70's, 80's, and now the 90's. It is the argument of whether handguns, shotguns, and rifles should be restricted or banned. This debate over ownership of a firearm has produced strong emotions through the past years and does not seem to be abating. Does the U.S. Constitution give people the right, or should guns be restricted or banned because they are used in the commission of ma...

    Gun Control: Why Do We Need Licenses To Own Guns? Automobiles must only be licensed for use upon public roads, and licenses are not required for the purchase of cars. There are no waiting periods or background checks on the purchase of cars. People who misuse their cars are punished for their own actions, and particular types of cars aren't banned or taken away from those who use them safely. Unlike driving on public roads, which is a privilege, owning a gun is a right explicitly protected by th...

  • Gun Owners
    629 words
    I believe that it is time for laws that govern guns to be tightened and a compromise to be made between gun banning and complete gun freedom. First I strongly believe that the gun owners must be responsible for their guns, no matter who gets a hold of them or how. A gun is a deadly weapon and if you own one and it is used in a crime, you should bear some responsibility. People need to be responsible for their dogs, and although some dogs are dangerous, they are much less dangerous than a gun. If...

  • My Mother S Bed
    686 words
    Paper on Irony As children we make many idle threats and angry promises, never realizing the impact they could bestow upon our lives. At the age of fifteen I learned that lesson the hard way. The words my mother and I had exchanged during common adolescent-parent confrontations were now my reality. I had no parent figure in my life, and I was on my own. I remember sitting in the living room as she packed her things. I only remember bits and pieces of our conversation. I am not even really sure i...
  • Effects Of Gun Control

    The United States is in a very unusual situation right now as most people know. We still haven't come up with a president. The effects of the candidate we elect for our next president may change my life and may not. If Bush is elected, everything I believe and stand up for will stay the same. I really hope he will become the next president because he will ensure the protection of my rights. If Gore were elected as our next president, my life could seriously be effected. There are several issues ...

    Pro Gun Control Introduction It is a Friday afternoon in Charlesbay High School. Students are piling into the lunch lines awaiting hot pizza, fresh French fries and ice-cold sodas. As the students discuss what they are going to do after the football game and how their 1st hour test was, a gunshot is heard not far away. The students are ordered to stay low to the ground by school security guards. None of the students know what is happening outside the lunch lines. What is going on is a 17-year ol...
  • Real Methods Of Firearm Accident Prevention
    725 words
    A continual topic of discussion among Americans, including our law makers, is the emotional and easily misunderstood subject of guns and children. It goes beyond the primary right to bear arms and the many questions that arise from that basic constitutional guarantee. Reality itself already dictates the need to inform the gun owning public about the methods of excluding children from access to guns. It is also necessary to help produce the implementation of those methods. Guns and children are m...
