PHI 210 Critical Thinking “WebText” 3.6 “Practice Induction MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTION The writer of this article presents an inductive argument using the following premises: Premise: Gun rights advocates have remained focused and passionate, and gun laws have not changed significantly. Premise: Advocates of gay rights made gains when they united their focus on same-sex marriage. Premise: Advocates of marijuana legalization made gains when they united their focus on medical marijuana. What conclusion does the writer draw from these premises? $ Gun control laws will never change, because gun rights advocates are so focused, passionate, unyielding, and indefatigable. $ Sometimes having a focus can be a good thing, while other times being too focused detracts from the advocacy group’s goals. $ *Correct Advocates of changing public policy or maintaining the status quo have the greatest chance of success when they are united and focused. $ Advocates for issues that don’t involve gun control have a better chance of achieving what they want than gun control advocates do.
