    to Carry Guns on Campus? About twelve states allow concealed guns on campus either in the pocket or in a locked car on the parking lot beside the fact that a number of people get killed in different colleges. Just recently, on October 1, 2015, nine innocent lives were killed and another nine wounded on Umpqua Community College, Roseburg, OR. Campus should be a safe place for students, and they should feel safe when they are going to get an education. However many people argue that guns do not…

    United States has been in a conflicting stance on guns, as some people oppose the idea of the government taking away their guns as this act would deny them the second amendment while others have been for eliminating guns from the equation of entirety, as it leads to many homicides and mass shootings over the years. The question then arises: Do we need a strict gun policy or eliminate guns completely? As research suggests, in the United States, guns can be linked to many things like suicide,…

    For many centuries, the main purpose of gender was procreation. Women’s role was exclusively a homemaker while other kinds of contact with the outside world took on the man. This, of course, gave men the right to treat women below themselves in regards to societal status. But with our time, technological progress, scientific discoveries and feminism, situation has changed dramatically. A woman in today 's society has a very different status. They now have freedom that somehow disables the word,…

    In James Q. Wilson’s Just Take Away Their Guns, Wilson has fairly liberal views on guns, gun owners, and their respective rights, but Wilson also has a radical solution for gun-related crimes. Wilson boasts an increase in frisks as a better way to control the amount of guns on the streets illegally than the already instituted paperwork and background checks required to legally purchase and own a firearm. He also argues that blame and ill will should not be upon legal firearm owners and that it…

    “Aahhhh”, a scream came from the upstairs. I quickly ran up the stairs. I heard two more on my way up. I swung the attic door wide open to see Dana stabbing Mas Ruf. In amazement, not knowing what to do or what was going on, watching her stab Rufus two more times I said, “Dana! What are you doing?” She started to scream, and then she vanished, everything but one of her arms which Mas Ruf was laying on. When she vanished, I went over to check the bloody body of Mas Ruf. He was still breathing…

People are having their lives snatched from them everyday and sometimes, for just being innocent. This makes America looks scary and like a dangerous place…

    This person will never learn to be like the rest of us. He has no conscience, he only looks out for himself and is wholly incapable of feeling empathy. It is a sad tale. People like him exist and there is no treatment for it. Most people cannot protect themselves from people like Danny because so few people are like Danny. Conscience is so inherent, so automatic that even when we try to put ourselves first in life we will often look back. We can connect the dots to understand the world around us…

    Confiscation Of The Gun Legislation In this country we are at the point of Gun control legislation, that the government is trying to save lives, but also putting the lives of citizens at risk by making it even more ridiculous on obtaining a gun legally, and in turn making the law abiding citizen turn down the route that the criminal would to obtain their guns. Sadly, our government is tirelessly still trying to construct the process and creating it more difficult and to take away that much more…

    enforcement departments across this country are given guns because they have been sworn to protect innocent citizens and only use the guns as a means of self-defense. Unfortunately like the scene from the episode" The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street", where a person grabbed a shot gun and killed an innocent person because that person was believed to be a monster; there have been many cases in the last two years that illustrate how the police have used their guns to kill innocent individuals.…
