The Founding Fathers put the 2nd Amendment in the Bill Of Rights for a reason, although some will say that it has no bearing today. Second, allowing teachers to carry handguns would provide better protection for the kids. In the event of an unpredictable school shooting, nobody is prepared to estimate the number of lives that
In addition, anyone with a felony in Switzerland cannot keep a firearm, so any criminal can’t legally own or buy a gun (“Rocky Mountain News” 9B). These examples about Switzerland prove that having a concealed handgun on college campuses will decrease crime rates. As crime rates subside, students will have a much safer environment and feel much more secure with the knowledge that someone is protecting
After analyzing three separate articles, I intend to point out specific fallacies in each of them. In Ann Coulter’s article, "Virginia Tech gun ban made campus safe -- for the killer", she discusses her opinion on the need to have armed students and faculty on campuses. She goes on to say that by having the gun free zones armed, it would help reduce the amount of casualties should another shooting like Virgina Tech happen. This falls under the hasty generalization fallacy. There is absolutely no proof that an armed student or staff member could in fact save life, because there is no documentation to prove this claim.
Obama voted for the AR band and McCain voted against it. They were also veiwing different sides when it came to the Heller vs. Columbia case. McCain wanted the ban on guns in D.C to be lifeted while Obama did not say a thing. McCain also voted on a bill that went against the government taking the citizens fire-arms in times of crises’s. So as you can see from where they stand Obama is a little more for Gun Control while McCain is almost completely Agenst it.
Rebecca James Instructor James ENG 111 3ZQ 28 Sept. 2010 Lia Hardin's Comments on Suicide in Asian American Women: A Rhetorical Analysis Lia Hardin composed the article “Cultural Stress Linked to Suicide” as a staff writer for Stanford University's campus newspaper, Stanford Daily. Her article deals specifically with the issue of depression, anxiety, and suicide in Asian American women. Though the article has shortcomings, overall, it makes a strong appeal for the specific group and even for the issue as it pertains to a wider audience. Hardin wrote the article in 2007. Her article was timely because, according to “Virginia Tech Massacre” it appeared just weeks after the Viriginia Tech murders and suicide.
For example, one corporate employee claims that Facebook can give employers a picture of a candidate’s character. Because of the possibility of being monitored, school officials advise students to be careful, but this is still no evidence. The third fallacy is ad pabulum fallacy. Although Cole states “Employers Can learn race, gender, religion.” In the essay Cole does not support anything with race, gender, religion. In that essay talks about is the fact that employees do not want their employers to see them in an unprofessional state.
Individual Privacy vs. National Security William J. Crabtree ENG 121 Instructor: Jessica Hamman July 02, 2012 First off let me just say that National Security is not just a bunch of government spy’s out there to take your privacy away and put your information out there for everyone. National Security serves many purposes from emergency preparedness and management to keeping threats isolated. So as history has revealed before, the people of our nation cannot afford to be self-centered on their Individual Privacy and the fight against our government’s way of protecting us. If we just take a minute to weigh the outcome of letting the government monitor not take away our Individual Privacy for the good of National Security we would see that many disastrous events could have and can be prevented. On September 11, 2001, the United States was invaded for the first time since the War of 1812 also known as “America’s second war of Independence”.
Fact NOT Opinion: Gun Control Doesn’t Work vs. Gun Control The 2nd Amendment states, “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.” Lorri Anderson, in her article “Fact NOT Opinion: Gun Control Doesn’t Work,” attempts to convey the idea that the government and media are to an extent, responsible for misleading the public of relevant statistical information pertaining to gun control in the USA. She implies that, “Everyone should have the right to bear arms,” and her ultimate purpose is to justify that, “It is not the guns that are bad; it is the individuals carrying them.” Therefore, CCW (Carrying Concealed Weapon) carriers should be permitted to carry arms anywhere and not just be limited to having them in their homes. Anderson uses statistics from the Department of Public Safety and recounts past shooting events across the country to support her point. Anderson adopts a patriotic tone in an effort to appeal to readers that may disagree with her argument.
Brittney Givens Mrs. Powers Composition I 10 December 2013 The Thin Line Between Self-Defense and Deadly Force. As the Governor of Arkansas, Mike Beebe, signed the into a law allowing the faculty and staff to carry guns on public-college campuses, his actions also established a silent leak hole for the students of that institution to possess weapons as well. Governor Mike Beebe also set the option for colleges to opt out and ban weapons from the campus. For the safety of the students and of the school itself, public-colleges should opt out of this bill and provide a safe environment for themselves.
It is also argued by supported that other crimes could be deterred and students and faculty alike would be able to protect themselves from these dangers and feel safe. The opposition believes that the legal carrying of a concealed weapon on a college campus can potentially create a very dangerous situation. Those who adhere to this belief are concerned that the presence of weapons on campus will detract from the learning environment of college campuses by adding an additional safety concern. There is also concern regarding the lack of training of the persons carrying the weapon. For example, those who have a permit to carry concealed weapons
