Another reason why living at home can benefit an individual is that they may have more time spent with loved ones and are more likely to get visits from friends and family. This is important as it keeps that sense of ‘normality’. If the individual was in a care/residential home, they may not get as many visitors as the family/friends may feel uncomfortable in that environment or the family/ friends may be busy during the visiting hours. Another factor is that the individual is able to maintain a little more control over daily routine, which is important as this leaves the individual feeling cared for and listened to. Also the individuals are surrounded by their own possessions with fond memories which make them feel more secure.

Could She Have Been Saved? In 2007, there were 284,300 victims of rape, or sexual assault (www.rainn.org/statistics). One in six women and one in thirty-three men will be a victim of sexual assault in their life time (www.rainn.org/statistics). Every two minutes someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted, and only 60% of sexual assaults are reported to police (www.rainn.org/statistics).

According to “Document D”, in 1607 August through October “Summer sickness kills half the colonists” The summer of 1607 was so severe that it killed 50 people. This was more than half of the amount of people left. They in anyway couldn’t have known that such an aggressive summer would hit them. Unlike the 21 century, the colonists then did not have radars which could predict how the summer would be. They could not have saved
Of the four he sent, only one has been solved. The Zodiac has killed victims in Benicia, Vallejo, Lake Berryessa and San Francisco. There were many suspects that were not identified.

In 2006, the proportion of mothers with newborns that were in the workforce was at 57% (“Working Parents”, 2012). That number increased to 61% in 2008 (“Working Parents”, 2012).

In 2006, law enforcement agencies reported 1,337,365 arrests of persons under age 18.

civilians use guns to defend themselves and others from crime at least 989,883 times per year, for that year there were an estimated 11.6 million offenses. That means that 8.5% of the offenses in the year 2000 were thwarted due to civilian intervention with a firearm. In John R. Lott’s More Guns, Less Crime Lott states that there are 60% fewer multiple-victim shootings and 78% less victims per attack in states that do not have a concealed weapon ban. There are many different statistics that have been compiled to show that gun ownership reduces crime, and just as many that support the opposing view, it is not a matter of whether or not citizens own a gun, it’s a matter of the intent in which they have when it comes to using the gun. While most people would by a gun for conventional purposes such as self-defense, hunting, or target shooting, it is inevitable that there will be people who buy a gun in order to use it for robbery, murder, rape, or a number of other heinous crimes, but depriving those who would use their firearm without malicious intent of their second amendment right does not rectify this horrible fact.
