He mentions the relating between shrinking the stock of legally purchased guns and people self defend. The public opinion in this point is dangerous to shrink that. They believe should not be to reduce the carry of firearms, but put an end to them being carried by criminals. The government and public goal
First & Last Name: Abram Watson RDG 120 - Section#:512 Date 12/1/10 Claim In the article “Should Drugs Be Legalized?” by William J. Bennett, the claim is drugs should not be legalized because it would increase drug use, crime and ruin lives. Bennett refutes pro-legalizer’s arguments that the legalization of illicit drugs will 1) take the profit out of its sales and 2) dramatically reduce crime. In his opening remarks Bennett disagrees with those who favor legalization of drugs because they feel it is hopeless to fight against it. In paragraph 1 on page 7 he gives the key works” flawed, fatalistic ,hopeless and bankrupt the legislating” proponents use these arguments for legalizing various drugs. The claim is explicit.
Taking away people’s right to own firearms, as Dwyer notes, is a calculated move aimed at leaving the people with no free will. Americans are no longer safe because Liberalism and its ideologies has done away with the safety measures that were aimed at keeping criminals in jail, deporting illegal migrants who are known for their unlawful activities and ensuring that mental patients remain in hospitals. These people are now freely loaming the streets, endangering people’s lives and instead of preventing and stopping this from happening, the government is only keen at imposing the gun-control law on law-abiding citizens. Crime rates are rising, many people have died in the recent years and people need to protect themselves from these criminals but with the gun control laws, no one will be
People may feel like it would do more harm than good. The fact is, however, that the drug users themselves are to blame for taking these benefits away from the family members that truly need it. If we were to look at this from another view it might make more sense. In the workplace, for instance, if you fail a drug test, there is a simple solution……no job. It would make sense to do the same for public assistance.
Some long-term effects are: suppression of the immune system, growth disorders, increase of abnormally structured cells in the body, or inability to understand things clearly. The foundation for a drug-free world feels very strongly when it comes to be being against marijuana; rather it’s with their arguments or by their name. It seems like they want to free the world of all drugs, not just marijuana. They talk about the affects of drugs like heroin, crack, cocaine, and even crystal meth. With marijuana they really stress negatives that it can do to your body.
Why would a criminal follow gun control laws if he or she is already going to break the law to commit a crime? The gun control laws will be only hurting the law abiding citizens that enjoy using their gun rights for sport such as hunting. Gun control laws will be only taking away a form of protection that some people desperately need. Gun Control laws will only tear this country more apart and create more conflict between Democrats and Republicans. The United States Government needs to allow citizens to keep their rights and protection and live the way Americans have lived for the past two hundred
Politicians love to use the idea that removing legal guns will drastically reduce suicides, asassinations, gang-violence, school shootings, accidental child deaths, and general murders. They don’t consider the fact that someone that wants to kill themselves will do it anyway they can, or a college kid trying to tear up his school will just blow it up if he cant find a gun. Gang’s don’t use registered guns to commit their crimes, they use black market weapons. The result of implementing full gun control will not only endager the civilians of the country because they cannot defend themselves, but will also lead to people losing their freedom and living in fear. The criminals should be living in fear because they know that their victims have the ability to retaliate when attacked.
Recently, a city council distributed scratch and sniff cards to households, in hopes that residents would assist in the war by pointing out smells to the police (Webb). The idea of doling out perfumed papers seems ridiculous and inane in a sophisticated society. The illogical, billion dollar war continues to fail because politicians know that “…being “tough” on drugs is politically safer than the uncertain ground of moderation” (Schrag). Alas, they choose to play out of harm’s way in order to stay in
When the world thinks of interrogating they just go straight to torture, but when they craw away from that, there would be no enemies due because of their grudges toward countries. When using torture on suspects not only will it not work most of the time but it will mostly resolve in someone’s death. “President Obama has done the most important thing: reversing Bush's policy and declaring, as he did last week, that torture was unequivocally wrong” (Weisberg 1). Therefore using torture is just ruining the morale of countries especially the United States because we have rules. How come they can break the rules and other citizens can’t?
Some would say that the best way to cut the cost is to give in and decriminalize certain or all drugs. Others would rather make drug related offenses call for more strict punishments. Either way it is going take a long time to get our country back, when it comes to the war on drugs. Production of drugs, like methamphetamine, has become prominent domestically. The availability of ingredients makes this possible and causes even more trafficking issues since there is no need to import across borders, federal or state.
