In this study I looked at different media and sources that state their point of view on the subject, whether they are against guns or with guns. Gun control groups used propaganda, statistics, and tragic events to support why guns should be outlawed in America. While Gun-right activists talk about liberty and how the founding fathers established the Constitution in order to secure these freedoms, with the right to bear arms being one of them. 3.

It is very important that we continue to take strides toward accepting homosexual unions; however, legalizing gay marriage is not a necessary step for that to
Everything seems to be contemporary, where gender issues would not be a problem, but when the viewer should peel back the layers of the show, it would not take long to see that Heroes relies on traditional stereotypes in terms of the gender lines of protection. Although it’s my opinion, and I am not the quintessential chauvinist in any way, I think that there are two sides to this matter.

Baby steps such as legalizing gay marriage and racial profiling would eventually lead up to more direct laws to protect people against prejudice. And because the law applies to everyone and enforced, it cannot be ignored therefore will eventually be accepted society, removing prejudice from the picture. Any resistance against the law will be passing... fleeting and when people see it as a loss of freedom, it is not. As it liberates us from restrains such as discrimination that constantly holds us back. Initial rebellion and arguments against such laws will not last long and is a short term pain for a long term gain.

In the article, the author’s friends are extremely prejudice towards men referring to them as the “other gender”.
