They government is emphasizing more on the fully automatic weapons, explosives, armor and other things that only the military should have access to. Some people do not see that the violence taking place in the U.S. has to do with the access to guns and the mental health of the individual. The people who are victims to some of the most recent shootings should speak up and tell others why we need to make obtaining these types of weapons much more difficult. Many individuals choose what they want to see, hear and believe, as in seeing the massacres happen and believing the government is taking their right away and not letting them have what they have the right to have, which is “the right to bear arms.” Most citizens do not see that making further background checks and regulation on the amount of ammunition that is
When Levin gives a hypothetical scenario it starts it extreme so, the reader can easily agree with his argument. Because the scenario is extreme it can be seen as black and white situation. Afterwards, he adds to his argument a more realist scenario a bomb in a plane. He uses extreme scenarios to justify torture to save
We have seen the case for not banning guns where the author tells us how taking guns away from the people will not stop the other majority of mass killings and we have also seen the point of view from the author of banning guns where the author says that he necessarily states that he doesn’t want to just ban guns, but limit who we give the guns to. Now that both sides have been shown and talked about I have gotten a better understanding on which side is in my preference and that would be for banning guns. I don’t want to sound like I hate guns, but I do love my country and the ground I stand on, and I would hate to see it crash because a few people are too ignorant to accept that we need limitations to protect the ones we
Gun casualties and incidents throughout the country have woken the public up from its ignorance and shown them the danger guns can pose to society (Martinez, 2013). While some people want a complete blanket ban on the ownership of guns, others wants an easier access to guns so that every person may look after their own security. Part of what makes the term gun control a very controversial topic is that it’s used in a ambiguous way that does not explain the details of the issue and the demands, apart from literally controlling guns. The two prominent sides of the debate are the groups who ask for liberal gun laws that make it easier for a person to procure guns and conversely, there are groups who want to repeal the second amendment. I personally am a strong believer that an “ideal society” should have no guns; nevertheless crime is a big problem to the citizens of our society and guns are necessary.
The main ethical issue is that many people, due to their religion or personal opinion believe that destroying human embryos is a form of murder. However many other people believe it is furthering our knowledge of science. I personally believe that scientific research is very important to our everyday lives, as it brings us new understandings and knowledge on how the world works. Although the opposite opinion of my own is very hard to justify as it is considered unnatural and wrong, I believe that the benefits for curing diseases and repairing important parts of the body, out way the negatives. Scientists have also begun looking at adult specialised cells, and figuring out how to make them unspecialised again so this ethical problem won’t be an issue anymore.
These are the questions I hope to answer. I could simply answer these questions by saying that some people are just ignorant. But I believe that nearly all Christians who dislike gays believe that they have a very strong basis for feeling the way they do. One of the first reasons that these people will give is that the Bible says homosexuality is a sin. The Bible gets the blame for a lot of things but especially for outright rejection of homosexuals.
It will end up as the same problem as drug trafficking or maybe become worse and even more dangerous. Importing handguns may be a lengthy process, but the criminals will still be able to get their firearms and the law abiding citizens would be left with little to no protection. The second amendment of the US constitution states that as a citizen from the U.S., we own the right to bear arms. There are more than 20,000 laws that control citizens to buy and use firearms (LaPierre 308). Government officials keep creating laws that tend to slow down the process of owning a handgun, but it doesn’t solve the issue that crime still exists in this country.
The Last Judgment caused a big dispute between Cardinal Carafa and Michelangelo. It became a big deal because Michelangelo was accused of immorality and vulgarism because it had naked people with their genitals in evidence. It was mostly made a big deal because the image is in a church of Christianity. So then a censorship campaign was organized by Carafa to remove the frescoes. The genitalia in the fresco were covered twenty-four years later.
“God must be Evil” The question “is God evil?” is asked very often with both sides of the question offering different answers to this question with no definitive answer coming about but in both cases people coming out with very convincing arguments for both sides of the story. Some people argue that God is indeed evil because he is omniscient and because of his omniscience he knows that from the moment he decided to create us maybe even before then he knew which of us would reject him thus securing a place in hell for them or would sin again securing them a place in hell and yet does nothing about this. This is a major contradiction to his supposedly being omnibenevolent and some people even go so far as to use examples of murder and rape which are horrific events which they then use to say “how can a loving God allow such a thing to happen?” They then go further into it saying how as God is omnipresent and can see everything that has happened, will happen and is happening he must take some sort of sick pleasure in watching these events occur and so is evil. Or at the very least by allowing such a horrific event to happen without some form of justice or stopping them then he has to be evil as only an evil person would let evil acts go unpunished. Sam Harris uses this idea in one of his quotes saying that “Either God can do nothing to stop catastrophes or he doesn’t care to or he doesn’t exist.
It is said in many scriptures in all religions that God will punish non-believers and heretics so why would people take matters into their own hands. I believe these people should be punished by God for such immoral acts. This violence is too excessive and is unjustifiable by any means. Religious violence and any other type of violence (except self-defense) can never be morally excused. Everyone in the world agrees that the action of Adolf Hitler in the Holocaust was an abomination and inexcusable.
