A former police officer who was volunteering at the church “drew her firearm, shot and wounded the gunman before he could kill anyone else,” as stated in Bennett’s article. We should not only allow teachers and security guards to carry a concealed weapon as a precaution, but we should also make this a known fact so that criminals don’t think schools are an easy, unarmed
February 8, 2008 “The Persons Behind the Addiction” Every day, youngsters are obtaining drugs that stimulate or denounce their physical being. All over the news it is heard about how prescription drugs are falling into the wrong hands and kids as well as adults are succumbing to the harsh reality of these drugs. The death of Heath Ledger is a prominent example. The reason for his death was the mixture of his prescription drugs that without him knowing put him in danger. The use of these certain drugs such as hydrocodone, xanax, and others are becoming a threat to our society and stopping the wide distribution of these drugs seems to be a high priority to be looked into.
An example of stress could be the combine shooting, those kids that committed that crime were bullied for years and finally they acted out. We should understand that the means for them to commit such a horrible crime was within their reach. However the stress of getting picked on for many years eventually lead to what had aspired on that day. In an article done by Shirley Lynn Scott she asks the question why serial killers do what they do. She points out that serial killers have a wide range of issues that had lead them to killing.
This is similar towards Matt’s situation because he was accused for bombing the school and many kids would torture him. How does trying to commit suicide affect Matt’s identity? It affects Matt’s identity because he thinks committing suicide will solve all his problems and people would just leave him alone and forget him because he is dead. How dose committing suicides define Matt’s character? It defines him because he was always bullied at school ever since the incident happen
Throughout the murders there was also letters sent to the police telling them how he would kill the next person and mooching them because of their false accusations. It was hard to tell what letter were from jack the ripper because after the release of his first letter hundreds of letters started arriving at the Whitechapel police department for publicity. Since there was some many letters it was hard to tell the difference between the real ones and the fake ones. Experts of the time narrowed the letters down to three main letters. The first if which was the Dear Boss letter, in which he talked about how he thought it was funny that the police knew a lot about
Originally designed for combat in war, should these outrageously high-powered machines be made available to anyone who can afford them? Looking back on all of the horrific events of the last ten years with all of the public school shootings, university shootings, and assassination attempts, the numbers are terrifying. So many lives have been lost to crazy criminals coming into schools and shooting innocent children. People who get access to these high-powered guns are a liability to the rest of Americans. The parents of Sandy Hook Elementary School were not thinking anything horrific would happen to their children when they dropped them off that morning.
The university was struck by a gunman who killed 33 people including him, and 15 others were wounded. John Gramlich states in the article Arizona approves gun on college campus that “the governor of Arizona Jan Brewer has been a supporter of the bill” (Gramlich 1). Supporter’s, states that students and faculty would be able to protect themselves should someone attack with a firearm. But there is no reason to fight back with fire. More gunfire will only escalate violence, which only leads to more violence.
Journal Entry (Personal Choice): Critical Reading Mayberry Author- Josh Sugarmann Page numbers 6 Summary- The article I read was called the NRA is Right it actually mainly shows how the author is against the right to bear arms. All he keeps bringing up is statistical rates that the NRA and police are applying to. He rather keep his own opinion to himself and just go off of what other people are say to try and show that guns are not the best choices to be held and used. He did give many true facts but also many of his own opinion. He mainly stayed on the fact that people kill them self and cause murder.
There were forty two people shot and wounded and twelve people died in the brutal shooting. But, there are also a lot of the shooters past that shows that he was crazy. His parents had him in counseling and a lot of other thing in this guy’s past could have caused him to be in jail the rest of his life. I heard he just wanted to be known everywhere, and I guess in one way or another, everyone knows him; but, only as the guy who shot everyone in the Aurora. This is why I think movies have ways of expressing things that I don’t know if anyone really
These places have many people, and their aim is to kill as many people before they are killed. Therefore arming civilians will help in gunning down these criminals before many people lose their lives ('10 Arguments Against Gun Control - Listverse',pr20). The other argument commonly made by those against gun control is the notion that guns don’t kill but people kill. This argument is focused on the assumption that guns are just tools, and they do not kill themselves, and that responsible gun use is not harmful. They also infer that strict gun laws will not hinder criminals from obtaining firearms, if they don’t intend to abide by the law.
