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
The government is ignoring the need to do something about organized crime, so gangs continue to commit illegal deeds. The government of Canada needs to do more to stop and destroy organized crime in Canada because, illicit drugs are becoming more of an issue, financial crime is developing more and more and gang groups continue to enlarge. If the government does not act quickly then organized crime will continue to expand and commit more illegal deeds. Society is affected by organized crime every day. Some may not be aware but it affects things like the taxes you pay, your insurance rates, banking fees, even your safety and health.
This era was our first attempt for an organized police force. It showed us our flaws in the system and what people will do to ensure “their” best interests are protected and with money and power, could be above the law. The more corrupt the officers were, it seemed like the more violent criminals started to become. People where tired of being stepped on for someone else’s gain and those would be normal everyday people turned towards the criminal side. This led to rethinking the whole police system and how to better effect the people they were sworn to protect.
Once the tender trio were eventually almost all hunted down and killed a new generation came to power. Lil’ Ze’ formally known as Lil’ Dice, who previously tagged along with the Tender Trio became the new power with the gangs and drugs when he decided to take it by force starting with Blacky’s drug operation. Although he killed numerous people to become this power, he created a false sense of a leviathan. He was looked at like the true leader but in the end most people just tried to do what they could to stay out of the way and not die, because death in the end is our ultimate fear. Although there were less robberies, rapes and killings after Lil’ Ze took over, he still didn’t have ultimate power.
Due to the amount of appeals and thorough investigation of each case, no piece of evidence is overlooked for the benefit of the defendant. Unless there is strong criminating evidence and the court is certain the accused is guilty, the death penalty would not be issued. For the 2,293,157 behind bars in our country the miniscule 3,220 on death row is unlikely to contain innocents due to their case being examined extensively. If one innocent man was wrongfully put to death by the state, should we abolish the death penalty? This argument can be compared to if a police officer shoots an innocent man, the country should purge police officers of their weapons.
The 18th amendment contributed to the rise of organized crime because it created a lot of underground business. From killings to people living in poverty, that’s what the prohibition caused. If people really thought that prohibiting alcohol to be sold leally were going to help the way that people lived during this time, they were wrong. A lot of people were against the law, they argued that if they banned alcohol legal businesses were going to go broke and that was not going to help the economy get better. But alcohol was not the only thing breaking families apart they said, after the war, soldiers would come home and find themselves in a whole, struggling to find jobs.
Drinking and driving is very dangerous and many people have their lives shattered and ruined because of drunk drivers. That is why it is becoming socially unacceptable. People are finally starting to realize how dangerous this can really be. With the help of new laws, and continued hard work, the number of drinking and driving accidents should be very little in the future. Anyone that is caught while intoxicated should never have the right to drive again.
This could have a huge affect on the current war on drugs. The war on drugs will continue because apparently the big drug dealer can not be caught. Drugs are going to continue in the states simply because some people do not have jobs and each of these individuals sells drugs to try and make money. If the war on drugs does not be controlled then a lot of things could happen and make the world go down tremendously. Today in our society if drugs are not off the street our younger generations will began to sell it and use it too.
It will not stop people from buying guns off of the black market and using them like they always have. The federal government regulations make it very difficult for the common man in crime driven neighborhoods to buy a gun, while the thug, under any garb, continues to procure arms illegally. While a segment of the law guarantees individuals the right to own guns, another amendment makes owning a handgun difficult and many people feel that their constitutional rights are being denied (Borade). There will always be murders and killing in our world but gun control is not the answer. If they take away guns, they might as well ban knives alcohol and other dangerous things, but would also be nearly impossible to achieve.
Citizens of the U.S. need to rid themselves of these dogmatic laws and create a new set of laws. The only thing that Reagan’s 1984 National Minimum Drinking Age Act has accomplished is forcing the drinking right underground. Unfortunately, the federal government has state governments blackmailed, because if they allow the drinking age to lower, the states federal highway funding will be cut. These laws are actually a consistent source of revenue for the government. Government knows that people are going to break these laws, and hope to catch every single criminal, and nail them for every court fee, fine, probation fee, and as much bail as they can dish out.
