Gun Control Legislation

The Gun Control Debate & Gun Control Legislation

With reference to the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees the right to the lawful possession of firearms to private citizens as well as with reference to law & economic journals, the paper will explore the gun control debate and the network of related issues. People who are not in favor of the use of guns and favor austere gun control legislation often argue that guns do not kill people; people kill people. People who are law abiding and moral have guns because it is their right; people who are of weak character and lack ethics have guns because it is their right. Gun possession is a fact of life making gun control legislation and regulation an absolute necessity; it is not the job of the law to judge a citizen's character, but rather it is the job of the law…… [Read More]

Issue of Importance

Words: 650 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 34447577

economic downturn which has gripped the United States since 2008 has greatly affected my life as well as the lives of those around me, and does not appear to be improving very soon. To make things worse, the most badly injured Americans in this crisis have been young people ages 18-30, those just entering the workforce. My community has seen its own crisis, with local government unable to sustain itself with so many stores closing and fewer property taxes paid. Despite the joy of finishing high school and moving on to college next year, I often worry about the state of America's economy and I wonder when a sense of stability for my generation will be found.

My family has been my main source of knowledge and wisdom throughout my life, and they too have felt obliged to cut back in their lives due to difficult times. Food has become…… [Read More]

Crime:

Over the past 3 decades, crime has continued to be a major issue that has attracted huge public concern characterized with discussion and action that are usually unbalanced and not likely to lessen crime rates.

Political discussion and actions as well as public expenditure have played a major role in the reduction of crime rates in the recent past. ecent reports have indicated that crime rates have sharply declined despite the lack of consensus on how to deal with criminal activity.

Issue of Paternity Leave

Words: 1572 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 34111770

Paternity leave has emerged as one of the debatable issues in today's society, especially because of the changing nature of the modern workplace. Generally, many new fathers tend to return to work after celebrating the birth of their newborns. Fathers barely take time off after the birth of their children despite of the need to take paternity leave. Actually, based on the findings of a survey on working fathers by the Center for Work and Family at Boston College, fathers rarely take time off after the birth of their children (Hall, 2013). Even in situations where men are offered paid paternity leave, most of them won't take it mainly because of the stigma associated with such measures. The issue of paternity leave has generated numerous arguments and counter-arguments between proponents and opponents respectively. An analysis of these arguments demonstrates that paternity leave is vital to promote the involvement of both…… [Read More]

Ethical Issue on Abortion

Words: 3142 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 89322346

Ethical Issues Surrounding Abortion

Notwithstanding the laws being passed in various states against a woman's right to chose to terminate her pregnancy, the position of this paper is that Roe v. ade is the law of the land and a woman has the ethical and moral right to decide to have an abortion. There are many positions for and against Roe v. ade, and there are many ethical issues that may be (and in many cases are) embraced on both sides of the issue. But the law of the land vis-a-vis a woman's right to the privacy -- regarding her own values -- when it comes to terminating a pregnancy has been determined by the High Court. As a nurse committed to fairness and ethics in healthcare issues, while I respect the rights of others to practice their own values in opposition to Roe v. ade, I am in support…… [Read More]
