After reading chapter 18 and listening to the attached link on Heller VS District of Columbia, choose TWO (2) of the following questions. State which questions you are answering (re-state the questions).
What can be considered appropriate and inappropriate regulatory legislation on an individual’s “right to keep and bear arms” based on The Second Amendment and what might be the importance of such a right?
The Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own guns; guns are needed for self-defense from threats ranging from local criminals to foreign invaders and gun ownership deters crime rather than causes more crime. Discuss arguments for and against this statement.
A Public gun control debate occurred in the United States in 2014 after a major mass shooting. Proponents of more gun control want more laws to prevent mass shootings and for smart gun laws, background checks and more protections, including purchasing rights for individuals with documented mental disorders. Opponents of more gun laws accuse proponents of using a tragedy to further a lost cause, stating that more laws will not prevent shootings. Explain your debate.
