Module 2 Assignment 2: Factors In Favor of and Against Name: Joanna R. Mosk Topic: Gun Control: Increasing the restrictions on the civilian possession of non-hunting guns Part 1: Matrix Strength of the Argument (1- strongest, 6 - weakest) Reasons For Reasons Against 1: Even gun owners support gun restrictions Two of the gun owners that I talked with agree that unless the non-hunting gun is used for target practice, there is no real reason for a civilian to have one and that restrictions need to be stronger. Those gun owners that do not support gun control laws spout the Second Amendment as the only reason for a civilian to be able to walk freely down the street with an AR-15 strapped over their shoulder. 2: It is NOT the actual gun that is the problem, it is the caliber of the bullet. The AR-15 can be modified to house clips that hold 30 to 60 rounds depending on the clip. The larger the caliber, the more damage can be done to the body. The AR-15 is just a rifle that was originally used for vermin control and to hunt game from deer to bears. The caliber ran from a .17 HMR (for small critters) to .45-70 GOVT (mostly used on Black Bear*) 3: Stricter gun laws can make it harder for people to defend their families and homes. People have the right to protect their families and homes from intruders, who are more than likely armed. There are other ways of protecting homes and families that have nothing to do with guns. 4: Regular people with guns can help stop an attack. Armed civilians could potentially stop an attack from exploding into something bigger and could keep a situation under enough control for law enforcement to arrive and take over.

    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.
