The Deadly Date
The Deadly Debate
Gun Control has been at the forefront of many debates due to the increase of deadly shootings. Over the past several years, there have been multiple mass casualty shootings, and as the number of shootings increased, United States citizens began the debate of whether tighter gun control laws would prevent these shootings. In this debate, we will address the reasons supporting gun control and the reasons opposing gun control. Americans have a choice and this choice will be debated below.
America was founded on the principle of freedom and the rights of an individual to live in a nation built by the people, for the people. The government has begun

The libertarian view is that “by right every individual is in charge of his or her own life. We all have the right to live as we choose, as long as we don’t infringe on the rights of others to live as they choose. In particular, we have rights to life, liberty and property, and each of these rights serves as a “no trespassing” signs against interference by governments as well as others individuals. The only role of the government is to protect those rights.” (John Hospers)
These civil rights are strongly supported by libertarians that argue gun regulations are unconstitutional. The libertarian argument against gun control is simple; the government is infringing us of our rights. As the

Unfortunately there was a terrible tragedy that occurred on December 14th 2012 that would change the world forever. This wasn’t any school shooting that could compare to ones in the past but labeled more as a mass murder. It had taken place at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newton, Connecticut where twenty children and six adults were fatally shot (Karl, Dwyer, & Bruce, 2013). The 20 year old man, Adam Lanza was help responsible for the shooting and killings when he then turned the gun on himself (Karl, Dwyer, & Bruce, 2013).

Downside to Gun Control
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could no longer protect your family, yourself, and help in being part of the militia? Well that’s the direction some of our politicians are trying to go towards. I am talking about the negative results that imposing harsh gun control laws and regulations would bring if the government passes gun control laws. I am going to talk about three reasons why. First, crime rates would go up. Second, it is in the second amendment where it says we have the right to protect our rights and families. Thirdly, the second amendment protects us against our own government.

has left room for action by legislative bodies and the courts to pass laws and make interpretations that influence the way this Amendment is applied and enforced. The Second Amendment says, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed." (Amendment 2).
A central argument put forth by gun-control advocates is that since there is no longer a "militia", that individuals should lose their rights to own a gun. They often assert that the term "militia" should now be defined as each state's National Guard or Reserves. On the other hand, anti gun control advocates argue that the Second Amendment

“Five myths about gun control”
By Robert J. Spitzer, December 21, 2012
1. I like this article because it states specific facts about gun control and not just opinions. It talks about all the myths about gun control, one myth is that gun control is a losing battle for Democrats. But, that is false because many democrats have voiced their opinion on the topic. Another myth is that guns are deadliest as murder weapons which has been also proven false because statistics show that gun suicide is more common than gun homocide. Another myth is that American schools have become shooting galleries. Horrible incidents like Sandy Hook and Columbine

However, this would change the landscape of the arms industry; NRA represents the special interest of a certain people, and that people is not “public Interest”. Technology has a strong presence today. Businesses are more efficient, operating with more capital, and expanding internationally.

US v. Lopez (1995)
Is the Gun Free School Zones Act an unconstitutional exercise of Congress’s power? This case was based on the commerce clause. Alfonso Lopez walked into his San Antonio high school carrying a concealed weapon, violating a Texas law that banned firearms in schools. But the next day those charges were dropped and he was then charged with offending a federal law: The Gun Free School Zones Act. He was indicted and found guilty, and sentenced to six months in jail. He challenged his conviction saying that the federal government had no control in education, but the federal government said that it had the authority to ban guns in schools under the commerce

process because you must, control the torch, feed the wire, move at the right speed and also use the correct current. This process is much easier for bench work. TIG can weld just about any metal with AC and DC power sources.
Gas MIG welding is also called GMAW (Gas, Metal Arc Welding). It uses a thin wire as an electrode and is filler fed by a wire feeder to the gun. This process requires a power source that has a constant voltage (CV) DC. This process produces very clean weld with no slag or spatter. You must use argon/CO2 or straight CO2 as a shielding gas. The filler wire used in this process is less expensive than the wire used in TIG. This process is great for thin metals of all types

common law, larceny is the trespassory taking of the property of another, and carrying it away with the intent to permanently deprive. The Model Penal Code defines the elements of larceny as exercising unlawful control over the property of another with the intent to deprive.
Al may be charged with common law larceny. He did take the property, which had not yet passed title, with the intent to permanently deprive Dan of his rightful possession of it. However, because asportation of the gun was attempted by passing counterfeit currency, it is more likely that Al will be charged with False Pretenses Larceny or Theft by Deception.

There is no doubt that various books and experts can give us many theories as to the
causes of juvenile delinquency, including one's economic background, substance abuse, peer
groups, repeated exposure to violence through the family circit, increased availability of firearms
and media violence, however, I feel that the number one cause of juvenile delinquency is the
breakdown of families, including lack of parental control over children. It is ironic that
one must have a driver's license to operate a car, a permit to own a gun and even a license
to own a pet such as a cat or a dog, but one does not have to have training or a license in order to

I chose to do a picture of the American Civil War. The picture I chose is of a battle between the union and the confederacy or north and south. The picture shows how severe the war truly was between the two sides. The north is running up a hill while the south is running down. Both sides have guns and swords drawn, and gun smoke everywhere, people dying on both sides. Horses getting shot, flags waving, and everybody seems to be yelling and screaming

The Western Front of World War I opened in 1914, with the German army invading first Belgium, then gaining military control of important industrial regions in France, according to von Schlieffen proposal, which was a breathtaking plan that would defeat both of long-term enemies such as Russia and French. It was considered that Russia would be slow to mobilize it's armies, giving time for Germany to attack France so France would need to be quickly defeated, allowing Germany to pay it's attentions to the Russian forces.

proves that violence begins through “the brutalization of children by their parents or their peers” (30). Attributing violent behavior to media violence is an example of false cause. Politicians say that violence stems from media violence, but to this day there is no solid evidence of this. By pointing their fingers at the media politicians avoid confronting more controversial topics such as gun control, domestic violence, and child abuse. Empirical evidence supports the theory that violence isn’t learned through observing mock violence, but through real life experiences. Comprehensive, long-term studies have demonstrated that violent behavior is far more closely correlated to violence in

My family and friends were there to help me through the ordeal but life soon returned to normal for them. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about my own life.

"Even when law enforcement was present or able to respond within minutes, civilians often had to make life and death decisions, and, therefore, should be engaged in training and discussions on decisions they may face," the report's authors write.
More than half of the incidents ended on the shooter's initiative, when the shooter either committed suicide, stopped shooting or fled the scene. Unarmed citizens were able to successfully restrain the shooters in 13 percent of the incidents, while armed citizens (not police offers) played a role in only 4 percent of incidents.

The other problem for the pluralist theory is that leaders of interest groups do not necessarily reflect the views of their members (or perceived “constituents”) accurately, nor the intensity with which those views are held (Sagoff, 28). A good example of this problem might be some of the positions taken by the NRA on gun control. The NRA claims to speak for the owners of the approximately two hundred million firearms in private hands in the USA, and its fee-paying memberships is roughly three million, so it must represent a wide range of people.

But at the time it was a risky design. In earlier games, you never had to reload, so Valve was making weapons harder to use. Players could easily get annoyed—”Why do I have to keep hitting Reload every ten seconds? None of the older games made me do this. Why can’t the gun just reload itself?”
Valve took a gamble on reload and the gamble paid off. Players loved Reload even though it made more work for them. Why? Because Reload creates interesting decisions.

Tanglewood should try to develop their current talent because one of their focal points of having a successful business is having exceeding customer service, and there is no need to go out and acquire new talent when Tanglewood already has the staff capable of developing their KSAOs. However, Tanglewood will need
