Guns part of the solution
The ability to obtain and carry a concealed weapon disturbs my wish that the world is safe.
I choose to believe that there is no reason to carry a gun on a person because that shouldn’t be the first reaction to a “life threatening” situation. I think people should call emergency enforcement if they should come into contact with a problem.
For example, on January 13, 2014 seventy-one year old, former police officer Curtis Reeves shot and killed moviegoer, Chad Oulson for texting during the previews in Florida.
According to ABC, Reeves shot Oulson after repeatedly asking him to turn off his cell phone. The actual situation which caused Oulson’s death was truly childish. Yes, it is rude to text during a movie but this happened before they made the “silence is golden” announcement and while people were still walking into the theater. Even before, Reeves shot Oulson with his concealed weapon, Reeves’ actions were taken overboard.
I am not a fan of allowing people to obtain a concealed weapon with or without a “special” permit. No one should have the option to carry around a weapon for safety. More danger can come out of protecting oneself than if they didn’t have a gun.
Advocating for Middle Eastern women
Since the rise in concern over the treatment of women in the Middle Eastern countries, women’s rights activists of the western world have been walking the fine line between advocating for women’s rights and respecting religious tradition at the same time.
A Sporting Chance
Since the relatively recent advent of radio, and subsequently television, broadcast journalism is an industry that has skyrocketed in modern popularity. This industry, specifically in sports broadcast, tends to be majorly dominated by a male presence.
