Section 1 In a quick overview of the case Mapp v. Ohio which ended in a ground breaking Supreme Court decision police officers in Cleveland, Ohio were watching a women named Dolree Mapp. The reason for the surveillance because police felt she was a guilty of harboring a fugitive in addition she was also suspected to have illegal gambling material in her house. Under advisement from her lawyer Mapp refused to let police search her house without a warrant. After this contact police returned three hours later and when there was no answer at the door police force their way in, Mapp demanded to see a search warrant the police showed a piece of paper which Mapp snatched from police to discover that it was not a search warrant. Through the search of the house police found illegal pornographic material but nothing that they suspected her on, at which time police arrested Mapp for the illegal pornographic material.
The death rate of people has gone to an all time high due to no protection of the people in America by not banning guns and assault rifles. Every one out of twenty people in America will be shot at least once in their lifetime. People tend to make bad risky decisions when they have things that can do harm to others in their possession. If we limit the amount of harmful objects that people can have in their possession then the death rate of people would have a drastic drop. There is only bad things that can come out of having an assault rifle in possession, so there is no need for them in America.
But the ban is not the answer. It’s not the assault weapons fault. The Bushmaster .223-caliber model XM15 rifle did not walk onto the property of Sandy Hook and kill those innocent children and people, the person did. There are other logical ways to prevent and stop violence. Gun control may be an issue on streets with minors, or people with criminal backgrounds, but it starts with people.
When servicing a large amount of residents it is extremely important for hospitals and clinics to monitor staff to ensure safe care is taking place. The Florida Hospital Association (FHA) has established safety and quality improvement initiatives to improve Florida’s health care. The FHA (2014) implemented several goals for Florida to decrease the length of hospital stay, creating safer care for patients, reducing the number of preventable surgical complications, and reducing costs. Hospitals and clinics in South Florida are extremely congested and busy; this is why it is so important for these facilities to participate in the FHA’s quality program in ensure all patients are safe and receive the care they deserve. Education is a huge part of patient care and the FHA provides educational meetings and training programs to accelerate improvement of care and safety.
Guns Don’t Kill People The fact of the matter is guns do no kill people, but it is the people holding the guns that lead to another’s death. If a drunk driver were to hit and kill another person, it is not the car that is to blame, rather the person behind the steering wheel. The same could be said about guns. Not only is it a constitutional right to bear arms, but most crimes are committed using illegal weapons, so taking away legally obtained guns would not decrease acts of armed violence. This issue of gun control in the United States has people completely divided, but it must ultimately come down to the preservation of privately owned guns and the uplifting of current gun bans if this nation’s crime rate is to decrease.
Grant, Jr., sexually assaulted a 33-year-old woman on a Virginia beach one Tuesday in 1991. The assault was videotaped by a tourist who (not having a permit to carry a concealed handgun for protection) apparently could do nothing to help except record the crime. The following day, Wednesday, Charles Grant raped a 12-year-old girl. News broadcasts of the videotape of Grant's Tuesday assault frightened many people in the nearby Nags Head community. A young woman named Sonya Miller had wanted a handgun for a while, and on that Wednesday, her father bought her a .38 Special revolver.
TIME TO BLOCK GUN VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN If October is like every other month, 46 women in the United States will be murdered with a gun by an intimate partner. Public attention was gripped by the most recent mass shooting, at the Navy Yard in Washington, but during Domestic Violence Awareness month, we need to focus on the fact that women face a heightened risk of gun violence. Women are more than three-and-a-half times as likely to be killed by an intimate partner as men. A gun in a household with a history of domestic violence increases by 20 times the risk that a woman will be killed there, compared to households without guns. Similarly, more than 75 percent of stalking victims are women — and stalkers use weapons to harm or threaten their victims in 1 out of 5 cases.
The 2nd amendment states that we as citizens have the right to bare arms and to protect ourselves. Gun control only keeps the 'good guys' from obtaining firearms. Bad guys will always have ways of getting weapons, whether it is from the black market, cross borders, or illegal street sales. New gun laws won't do much in stopping them. As the saying goes where there's a will there’s a way.
If you do the research, Adam Lanza, (the shooter) was not legally permitted to use the Bushmaster XM15-E2S, Glock 20SF and a Sig Sauer P226. Since the guns were stolen, Senator Joe Manchin's failed gun control bill would have done nothing to prevent the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary. That will fall under the category if guns being illegally obtained and used to conduct heinous crimes. The United States government should not just quickly pass absurd laws strictly out of fear. The same day as the Sandy Hook shooting, in Central China, a man wielding a knife stabbed 22 children and 1 adult, which shows guns are not needed to conduct a mass murder and banning guns will not solve anything.
Gun Control Does gun control decrease crime, or does it change anything at all. Criminals will have guns regardless of if they’re legal. If we make guns illegal, only the criminals will have guns. Law abiding citizens will have no way of defending themselves against said criminals. No matter what kind of gun control we have, criminals will always be able to obtain guns through the black market.
