Warning Shots p. 6

The attempted assassination of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has reignited the long debate over guns in America.

 

CRITICAL THINKING

  1. Why is such an amendment important in the nation's earliest years? Because new US had to defend itself against the British.
  2. How has the Supreme Court interpreted that language in recent decisions?monique
  3. Do you think there should be any restrictions on an individual's right to own and carry guns today? If so, what kind?yes they need to check back rounds more before people are able to own a gun and if they have a bad back round with guns are any other harmful objects they should not be able to own one

 

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. Gun-control advocates say that Arizona's gun laws are too permissive. 
  2. What do you think?
  3. Should people be able to carry concealed weapons into restaurants and bars?no because they should be able to go out and have a good time 
  4. On college campuses? Why or why not?no because school should be a safe place for students
  5. Why do you think more teens than adults support gun-control laws?i think more teens support gun control because they are not as mature as adults and because they are the main ones using them 
  6. What, if anything, do you think could have prevented the Tucson shootings?i think if they would not have let him but the gun knowing his back round this would not have happened 
  7. How do you think gun-control supporters and opponents would answer this questions?i think they would be mad because people might think that they are not doing there jobs
  8. When describing her bill to ban large-volume gun magazines, Congresswomen Carolyn McCarthy, Democrat of New York, said, "This is not a gun-control bill. I like to use the word 'gun-safety bills.'"  What point do you think she was trying to make? Do you agree?i think she was trying to say that its okay to have a gun as long as its legal and i think the point she was trying to make is that by doing this it will be safe

 

DEBATE

Take a stand: Should the U.S. ban the sale of gun magazines that contain more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

no, because people might use it in the wrong way and for the wrong reasons. when i say this i  that mean that every day guns are being sold to people that are useing them for the wrong reasons. so yes i think it should be ban.

Does the U.S. need tighter gun-control restrictions? Why or why not?

 

 

 

 yes, because people today are misusing there rights to own guns. when i say this i mean that people are buying guns and using them in the wrong way. some examples of this would be like revenge, just to prove a point,and to show there friends that there capable of doing something like taking someones life. so yes i do think that the u.s should have tighter gun laws. i think they should check backrounds more and if they have a violent background with guns they shouldn't be able to buy one
