  • The history of daylight savings is something I never knew about before reading this, it is very interesting. I like that both sides of the argument are presented equally. I think we should make standard time permanent because of the benefits it will have for the environment and productivity. Here is an article on the benefits of standard time when…Read More

    • Dear Ema :

      I am happy with your post, “Debates over Gun Control Laws in the United States,” because I accept the fact that people can be affected by guns. It makes less and decreases mass shootings from one group. I agree that the government should do something about this law. 

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “the bill expands background checks on people ages 18-21 who want to purchase guns.” I think this is unacceptable because at those ages people can’t control a gun. They can affect the meaning from a sense of role. It involves moments of anger. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it is an important rule to know. It is known for its 25% death rate.  I agree that “gun control argues we should arm teachers and put things such as metal detectors in schools to make them safer.”

    • Dear Ema,

      I was very pleased to read your post, “Debates over Gun Control Laws in the United States”, because of your unique, yet important view on the subject.  Although, your view is more one that is descriptive of both sides to gun control, I find it to be a necessary read for those who are wanting to learn more about this subject (to make a safe decision for themselves). One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “This bill includes incentives for states to pass “red-flag” laws that let groups petition courts to remove weapons from people that are deemed dangerous to others or themselves.” I think this is very important to acknowledge because it is not the gun behind the crime, rather the person who pulls the trigger. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because of the direct and blunt method in which you provide data. I hope you write more about this subject.

    • Dear Ema,
      I am pleased by your post, “Debates over gun control laws in the United States,” because it provided information from both sides about what people think about gun control. Also, you talk about what some of the outcomes will come from the decisions.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “This legislation can be abused to restrict lawful gun purchases, infringe upon the rights of law-abiding Americans, and use federal dollars to fund gun control measures being adopted by state and local politicians.” I think this is important because many don’t see or know what these changes will cause. It might also cause problems in government.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really enjoyed how much you showed information you showed and weren’t a very pro on a side. Also how you provide the important information.

  • I agree that we should install this system. The high level of traffic deaths in relation to drunk driving shows that we need to take action somehow, and installing these devices would get to the root of the problem. Results of this like less traffic and safer environments for first responders are positive. Here is another article on strategies for…Read More
