Bowling for Columbine Michael Moore made this documentary to influence our opinion on whether we think guns are beneficial for protection or a justification to shoot someone. The film starts out as Moore goes to the bank and has an interview with a banker; civilians can get a gun at no cost from the bank if they register for an account. He later went to the barbers for a haircut and discovered that he could purchase bullets there! America is saturated with guns since the people of America have lived in fear since they sailed there thousands of years ago. It is stated in the law book that anyone over the age of 18 has the right to own a gun. Moore tells us and interesting but bloodcurdling fact about gun related deaths in different countries were; In Germany 381 people are killed a year, In France 255 In Canada 165 In Britain 68 In Australia 65 In Japan 39 In America 11,127 PEOPLE ARE KILLED A YEAR!!! This is a huge number just for gun deaths. But who is to blame for all these gun crimes and deaths? The Media? The President of the USA? Marilyn Manson? Bowling? (This is a joke that Moore makes during the film because that is what the two boys did before they killed all those children at Columbine school). He leaves you to decide but hints that it could be all 3! Marilyn Manson comes into the picture because he got sued for
nightmare. Linda ran out of the bank; gun in hand towards a back alley.
Nightmare There was a knock at the door at the door. "Come in". Good morning Noel. Noel I called you because there seems to be a problem. It is written here in the register that you have been late for the whole of last week. Know whatever the problem you have to get it sorted, because this is not doing any good to your studies. If you have any problems at home talk to us. Me or any of the teachers, it's no good keeping it to your self. "Well then Noel do you want to tell me what's wrong"."? Well you see sir". All of a sudden Noel throws up all over the teachers' desk and register. Mr Kipling jumped up in disgust and Noel ran out of the office and through the main doors were he ran into Linda his knew neighbour. "Wow! What's the hurry Noel"? Noel said nothing and continued to run on. Linda decided to follow him as she was going back home herself. Linda had followed Noel all the way back to his garden. Linda peered over her fence and saw Noel go into his shed. After a short while she heard a bang. Linda leapt over her fence and looked through the small garage window. Noel lay on the floor quiet still with some pills around him. Linda dashed towards the garage door and swung it open. Noel lay on the ground with a pool of blood around his head. Linda saw a gun next to him; she bent over and picked it up. While Linda was examining the gun, Noel's mother crept up from behind
Taj Mahal 1852 The two Englishmen were walking down the white marble path both holding cups of tea in china cups and saucers. One man was wearing khaki coloured clothes with round head wear with the khaki strap of his hat going down his cheeks near his white bushy moustache. The other man taller and thinner in size had a thin moustache above his thin lips and his hair was well combed into a side parting. Both men were very upper class British men admiring the culture and the carvings of the Taj Mahal walking on the smooth white marble path with patterned carvings on either side of the path. Each step was slow and steady there was no rush at dusk. The air was cool but the humidity of the afternoon could still be seen as the tropical trees in the landscape had a mist of vapour round the branches and the leaves. The atmosphere was calm and cultural the only people to be seen on the path were the men. Conversation between the men was bitter, the short stubby man wearing khaki clothes stood out, he was new to the place of beauty. The tall man stood out and had a lot more confidence and did not look around fascinated by the Mahal like the short man. He wore a black thin suite with a creamy white shirt that could be seen. The short man was very talkative and the tall man spoke the queens English. "This invasion is a great achievement of Britain, here the people are very good

America and Gun Control.
Rachel Corbin Social Problems Gun Control 2 February 2003 America and Gun Control Amendment II 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. The debate of gun control laws ignites a volatile controversy amongst the American people. Fewer topics raise more emotional debate than the subject of gun control. The Second Amendment grants the "right to bear arms" however, the question remains about who is given this right. Is the right to bear arms given exclusively to the militia or to all the people? This question brings the issue of who should be trusted with fire arms, the people or the government? There is no evidence from the writings of the Founding Fathers that one must belong to a well regulated militia in order to have the right to keep and bear arms. The Founders were simply expressing a preference for a militia over a standing army. The first clause regarding the militia is merely one, and not the only, rationale for preserving the right to own firearms. The second clause, granting "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" applies to our nation on the individual level. We have the right to own guns for recreational purposes, such as hunting, and for self defense against intruders, or corrupted governments. It is our duty as citizens of the United
the Last Spin.
THE LAST SPIN It was a cold winters day and me and my gang were at the den drawing straws to see which poor guy was going in next. If I had any idea what was going to happen later on that day I would of that the gang a long time ago. This was a ritual between two gangs it was kind of like the "Russian Roulette" the torture game. Two people were choose, one from each gang and were sent down into a damp, dark smelly, rat invested basement. They were given a gun and a number of cartridges. The gun was loaded and the barrel was spun. One guy held the gun and loaded it; he then held it up to his head and pulled the trigger. God have pity on the guy that has the cartridge loaded as he ends up with a massive hole in his head. I've never been in that position but I've heard and seen the guys that have came out of that dreaded basement. I was about 15 at the time and I was brain washed by my so-called gang. At the time my gang could do no wrong, it was my life, my crew and my family. At first we just hung about at each other's house and went to the cinema each weekend, but then there was drink, drugs and they started stealing cars. I tried to get out of it but they kept persuading me to stay. There were two main gangs in my estate; my gang "The Diddymen" and our rival gang "The Loughries Loffies." For ages we'd been rivals, been in fights and destroyed each other's
The Need For Gun Control.
The Need For Gun Control Shortly after dusk, a sixteen-year-old boy stands on the street corner talking with a friend about what happened at school today between himself and another student. He nonchalantly stands there sipping his Pepsi when all of a sudden a black Honda with tinted windows drives up to the corner. The window rolls down, a voice calls out, and the boy walks up to the car. He bends down to peer into the car to see who it is when three rounds from a .38 caliber pistol rip through his chest and neck. The other boy frantically runs off into the distance. He stumbles backwards and trips on the curb behind him and falls to the sidewalk the car speeds off into the dark alleyway across the street. The young boy struggles to breathe as he coughs up blood. He chokes to death with every effort to breathe. He dies a minute or two later. These kinds of events are all too familiar to us and perturb us as we see an increasing number of handguns fall into the hands of the young. I am shocked at the sight of these events where innocent children are being gunned down on the street because of petty little arguments over something so minuscule as a pair of shoes, a particular type of jacket, or simply just a misinterpreted look. I believe that more strict handgun regulations are a must in today's society. I'm not saying that we have to ban handguns, but we have to take
Dave's Internal monologue
Dave's Internal monologue He's the enemy, he's the clubs enemy, he's my enemy. Even his jacket screams enemy. "This is a good piece, would cost you forty-five bucks in a store. That's a lot of money" He reckons the gun is a good but expensive piece at forty-five bucks? Who does he take me for, a cheap ass fool!? He doesn't even know me, I don't even know him. I suppose the gun ain't too bad, but why be interested in a gun that might blow your head apart? [Dave looks at the gun without interest] I'm bleedin' nervous. Women get nervous not men. I am a man not a coward, therefore I am a disgrace. I gotta keep control of my face. I can't show Tigo how I'm feeling. He's the enemy. Now, what can I say to show I ain't scared or bothered... "I seen pieces before. There's nothing special about this one." There that ought a do it. [Tigo starts a conversation] So...he got no bad blood for me. Bulls**t. I can see straight through those brown eyes. He's confident. It's written in his body language. CONFIDENT. Each time he talks he's saying: 'You're gonna die mother f**ker.' Why's he talkin' to me as if I'm dumb? I know the consequences of the game, I know why we're playin' and I know how to play. He's purposely makin' me nervous, asking where I'm from an' how big my family is. For all I know, I could die and never see my family again. Today might be my last living day. Today I
Krishna's development as God in Mahabharata
Krishna’s development as God in Mahabharata. Krishna is an enigma in Mahabharata. In this paper I’ll talk about the development of Krishna’s character from being a Yadava chief to the creator and God in Mahabharata. I’d like to begin with examples that are there throughout Mahabharata that depict Krishna as a normal human being and how slowly his position as God is revealed in the epic. We see Krishna first appearing in Mahabharata during Draupadi’s swayamvara. He witnesses it as Arjuna’s distant cousin and makes all the arrangements for it. He is shown as the head of Yadava clan which traces its lineage from Yadu, who was the son of Devyani and Yayati. Krishna is raised by milkmen and has had a miraculous childhood which is added later on in Mahabharata as a separate appendix called as Harivamsa. Krishna acts as Arjuna’s dear friend who guides him at every step and takes the responsibility of Pandava’s actions. He is a great statesman and if anything, he appears to be a devious diplomat. His flaws are human, and he bends Dharma conveniently to make Pandavas win the war and establish the higher good. Krishna’s is a very utilitarian perspective as he also states in one of his sermons to Arjuna during the war; he says that means don’t matter till the end is good. He is a manipulator and adjusts Dharma according to his will. One of the best examples of this
Against Gun Control.
Joshua Gendron Argumentative Essay Against Gun Control Guns owned by the average law abiding citizen aren't used in crimes, but they might be one day. Not just any crimes, of course. No, they won't be used to rob liquor stores, settle disputes between rival drug-trafficking gangs, or commit other crimes that happen in the real world. If gun control activists get their way, the crime will be simply owning them. Gun control will accomplish one or the other of two outcomes. Gun control will either make criminals of otherwise law-abiding citizens, or it will allow only the criminals to own guns, greatly compromising the safety of the average citizen. Thankfully our forefathers set forth a group of laws upon the advent of the United States entitled "The Constitution of the United States". Several amendments were added. One of these laws is the Second Amendment which reads as follows: "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." It is difficult for the average citizen to interpret the amendment; however, in October 2001, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in the United States verses Emerson case that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. Fifth Circuit Senior Judge, William L. Garwood, wrote the documented
