Gun Control Doesn't Prevent Violence at all.


Gun control does not prevent violence. It will either do nothing or make things worse in most circumstances. I understand that gun control does not equal banning guns, but in places where guns have been banned, after the ban rates of robbery, assault and sexual assault have gone up. But say guns weren't banned. Say there were just strict laws put in place. Well, in Canada, when strict gun legislation was put in place, their homicide rate went from 7% to 35% of the homicide rate of the United Sta...

Abortion, Planned Parenthood and Hillary Clinton


Not too long ago, Planned Parenthood was investigated for selling fetus organs to other countries around the world. That quickly went hush hush. Now, we had a presidential nominee (Hillary Clinton), who in her third debate with Trump, fully and 100% supported Planned Parenthood on the "full term" abortion policy, as long as it did not harm the mother at all. This policy allows a mother to decide to terminate a pregnancy up to the very last day of the projected due date. WRONG!!! Now, if i'm not...

The criteria that a policeman would have to meet would be that their conduct does n...

The Trump Travel Ban was Beneficial to the United States


The travel ban recently put into place is beneficial to the United States. I am not here to defend the entire Executive Order, as I actually do think that more countries should be added, but this list is better than nothing. Take a look at polls of what Muslims actually believe. They are not good people to be living in Western Society. I do feel sorry for these people who are actually suffering in countries such as Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, etc. But I do think that we should think about the f...

Assisted suicide should be illegal.


"Assisted suicide" refers to "the act of deliberately assisting another person to kill themselves." == A Definitional Note ==The term "assisted suicide" is something of a misnomer. There's no crime called "assisted suicide." I do not argue a legal penalty for patients who seek help in dying. The crime at issue is assisting suicide, and it's targeted solely at those who help another commit suicide. The legal right sought by proponents is...
