When that didn’t work and it became clear that they were not going to disperse, at around 12:24 pm 77 National Guard members fired 67 rounds from M1 Garand rifles into the croud killing 4 and wounding 9 others, thus violently ending the protests. What’s even worse is that two of the students killed had not even been involved in the protest they were just walking to class and had gotten caught in the crossfire. This had a major impact on other campuses and nation wide. It caused an estimated 450 other campuses to stop protesting worldwide and it also got world wide press, their was even a song written about it. it was a tragic event that happened to people who only stand up against what they believed was wrong and tried to make a
Many people question why it is that Edward Snowden leaked the documents showing what the NSA was doing. In the article “The Geeks who Leak” MichaelKelley Scherer quotes Edward Snowden saying “The public needs to decide whether these programs and policies are right or wrong". Edward Snowden feels that we should have a right to say whether what the NSA and Government does it right or wrong and whether we want hem to interfere in our personal lives when I comes so social media or not. He has been charged with theft of government property, unauthorized communication of national defense information and willful communication of classified communications intelligence information to an unauthorized person. Two of these three charges violates the Espionage act of 1917 which was intended to criminalize individuals who engaged in spying.
The local forces attacked the Presidential Palace, the National Radio Station, the U.S. embassy and other principal targets. When the Communist’s high command realized that the military objectives were not being met, they halted further attacks. Sporadic fighting continued in Saigon until March 8. Some sections of the city were left badly damaged by the combat and U.S. retaliatory air and artillery strikes. The Chinese district of Cholon suffered with hundreds of civilians killed in the American counter attacks.” (First Battle) “On March 16, 1968, U.S. Army forces conducted a mass murder of hundreds of unarmed citizens in South Vietnam.

Therefore, the executive, legislative, and judicial branch will enforce S.397 to protect firearm industries and our legal system from those attempting to hold them accountable for their criminal or unlawful misuse of firearms or ammunition products. Many people that are injured by firearms or use certain types of ammunition will not be able to hold makers or sellers responsible for the user’s accident or act that resulted in an injury or death. Many lawsuits that were brought to court before the PLCAA were majority criminal cases which resulted with dismissals because the courts believed that manufacturers should be held liable for the acts of criminal cases. Some difficulties or loopholes that can possibly prevent the PLCAA from being enforced is if a consumer or victim claims that the firearm product could have prevented an injury or death if it had specific safety regulations such as:
When put in a situation or a place where we do not belong, fear takes a hold of us. Did you know that the Columbine bullets were freely sold to the teenage killers by Kmart, at 17 cents apiece? “Bowling for Columbine” was a documentary film by Michael Moore which I found to be interesting, humorous, and an eye opener. “Bowling for Columbine” reminds us that this is a society where more than 11, 000 people die every year from guns, where TV news and entertainment programs produce violent images, where banks give away rifles to customers, and where the public lives in fear of being robbed and killed. It shows us how easy it is to get a hand on a gun.
As with genocide, terrorism does not create any moral dilemma to the society that implements it, yet the one that it is being used against is of the opinion that it is one of the worst things that can be used. The United States condemns all of the Muslim extremist organizations for their use of terrorism, yet the United States used the same tactics during the Revolutionary war. The exploits of the fictitious character Robin Hood used what would be seen as terrorist acts against a portion of the society in which he lived in, yet it is glorified in movies and books. Pirates also used and continue to use terrorism today. In the United States and England, English pirates that terrorized other nations are glorified, while all other pirates are
The documentary “From One Second To The Next” by Werner Herzog shows the tragedy of a few people who was involved in a car accident. Texting and driving is obviously not a good idea so why do people still choose to do it? This documentary both shows and tells about how fast texting and driving can change someone’s life. The fact that you can kill someone should make people not want to drive and text. “According to U.S. Department of Transportation statistics, 3,331 people were killed and 387,000 more injured in crashes involving a distracted driver in 2011” (Herzog, 2011).
Why or why not? I don't think they had a choice at first. Because in order to help company run smoothly and protect the employees’ lives, the company had to pay protection payment to the terrorists to keep them away. Besides, the unstable political environment didn't require them to ignore the threats from the terrorists. But later on, with the development of the company, they could have changed the attitude to the terrorists.
It is not the guns fault for people wanting to kill people. People that do these things are psychopaths. They had a reason that they thought was good enough to kill people. Not all the people that were killed by guns deserved to be killed but the gun was being controlled by someone, the gun did not do it by
