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?
  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, because people shouldn't care weapons in schools,stores,and buisness with security. 

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. Gun-control advocates say that Arizona's gun laws are too permissive. 
  2. What do you think?No
  3. Should people be able to carry concealed weapons into restaurants and bars?No unless they have been trained and work for the government,a cop or under cover.
  4. On college campuses? Why or why not?Only if they have been trained and keep it hittened from students.
  5. Why do you think more teens than adults support gun-control laws?Because teen kill people more than adults do.
  6. What, if anything, do you think could have prevented the Tucson shootings?cops and law inforcers that where there.
  7. How do you think gun-control supporters and opponents would answer this questions?In different ways.
  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?She was trying to say that they are not trying to control guns they are trying to make them safer.
