Austin Fortner Enc 1102 Mrs. Weaver September 20, 2006 Subject: Gun Control Purpose: Trying to persuade the reader into believing that gun control is needed in our society. Audience: Pro-gun control supporters Occasion: Informing the masses and addressing a controversial social issue “Bearing Arms” In America everyone has the right to bear arms according to the second amendment, but is that power just too much? The continual outcry for gun control in America comes from the people affected by the second amendment and its loose laws; people who have suffered losses from accidental gun incidents or violent crimes involving guns. One person named Molly Ivins hears these cries and by writing an article “Ban the things. Ban them all.” She expresses her feelings towards guns and the need for reform. With a radical stance and preaching to the supporters of the cause, Ivins draws the reader in with an impatient and sarcastic tone and tries to show the reader the problems with guns in order to make a change regarding the second amendment. Molly Ivins essay “Ban the things. Ban them all.” has many good points but the use of tone and lack of evidence makes her possibly strong argument weak.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
