The Supreme Court ruled on June 28th 2013, that individual Americans have a constitutional right to own guns- to all cities and states for the first time. New gun control laws will only farther erode our rights. One of the strongest arguments in favor of people who want to carry firearms is that nine of the states that have the lowest violent crime rate in the country are those that allow its people the right to carry guns. Gun-control laws have never, and can never, reduce violent crime. That's because anti-gun laws don't affect criminals, who ignore the laws.
(Jost 907) However, in the recent years, the laws become loose because of too many ammunition smuggling. Such as Mexico, if the gun control is strict enough for it, it won’t available to spread out to others countries. Beside, according to Kenneth Jost, there are many different sounds from the society that talks about this issue for thirty years after the firearms law have set up. (1107) The upholders of gun controls denounce gun abuse and too many gun accidents and self-killed. They think the laws and licensing are loose.
(Newsmax.com,2015) We all believe that each of us has the right to protect ourselves but on the other hand we all know that some cannot properly use a weapon and some use them inappropriately. Violent crime remains one of the most serious problems in the United States. In many violent crimes, guns are used but an actual link between the two remains unclear. Those that are for greater gun control say that of the more than 70 mass shootings in the United States in the last 30 years, more than half were committed with guns that were legally obtained by the killers, whereas according to the NRA violent crime goes down when more people legally carry guns. Since the 1990’s right to carry laws have risen in the US and at the same time, violent crime rates have decreased.
These to men have similar views on the issue such as a law prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers if someone using their produst comittes a crime. Also they both supports instant criminal background checks on people purchasing guns and believes law should apply to gun sales at gun shows. They both also voted for the child safty laws and such. But this is where they part. Obama voted for the AR band and McCain voted against it.
Maybe not so coincidentally, Republicans are more likely to watch the scariest news channel of them all: Fox. Whites are twice as likely to own a gun as nonwhites -- and it may also not be a coincidence that gun purchases have suddenly spiked since November 2008. Proponents of gun control are baffled that horrific massacres such as the one in Aurora, Colorado, do not lead to stricter gun control. They have their causation
This shows that even teenagers understand that there is a balance that needs to be achieved in gun control. Many people in our government have tried to make laws to create that balance. For example, a United States senator by the name of Dianne Feinstein is proposing new laws on gun control. Dianna is a proud gun control supporter that is proposing many new laws to restrict on guns even more. Just a few of the laws that Dianne is proposing is: Ban on certain more dangerous firearms, ban on importation of assault weapons and large capacity magazines, and no magazines more than ten rounds.
Introduction The Vietnam War was a monumental period in the US and Vietnam and had lasting effects on both countries. By the time that the US had withdrawn from the war and Vietnam, it brought to end a struggle that had occupied the Vietnamese for nearly 25 years. It was also one of the bloodiest wars the US had ever fought, and like the title says the only war the US lost. The war also left deep scars, scars on those who fought in the war, those at home who protested and watched the carnage on their living room TVs, and scars on the governments of both nations long after the war had ended. I believe that the Vietnam War had a major impact on foreign policy and that it still has lasting and valuable lessons almost 40 years later.

Purpose and History of Penitentiaries Your Name CJA/234 Date Instructor Penitentiaries, as well as the entire criminal justice system, has gone through many changes over hundreds of years. The focus of corrections has gone from revenge to reform. Even today, penitentiaries are changing based on the results of imprisonment, with attempts to deter criminal behavior. Today's penitentiaries are much more humane than prisons from hundreds of years ago, but there is still controversy regarding the human rights of inmates and prison labor. Prisons in the 1600's and 1700's were very unsanitary and inhumane.
This happens when a person falls considerably ill and an experienced shaman determines that they have received the blessing. Following this the person goes with an instructor for several years to learn of the traditions of the shaman and Hmong people. One of the most devastating events in Hmong history is the Vietnam War. Despite being told that they would receive aid from the United States in exchange for military support, the Hmong were left in disarray after the war. The Hmong were forced to remain on the run from communist groups as those that were identified for helping the US were thrown in reeducation camps.
