Paragraph four : effects and evidence against gun control Effects: “ The incrementalist argument — that more or better gun control will derail some killers — ignores the fact that these measures make it harder for law-abiding Americans to exercise their natural, civil and constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms” (Farago). Evidence: “ No assault weapons ban, no gun violence restraining order, no ammunition magazine capacity law would have prevented the San Bernardino slaughter” (Farago). Paragraph five : introduce how the debate for/against vaccines is a public health concern Paragraph six : the effects and evidence for vaccines Effects: “All of the vaccines save lives” (Carroll). Evidence: “ Between 1990 and 1994, more than 45 children died with varicella as the underlying cause. From 2003 to 2007, only 10 did. Even more significantly, in that latter period only one child younger than 1 died with varicella as the underlying cause, and none after 2004” (Carroll). Paragraph 7 : the effects an evidence against vaccines Effects: “ live viruses, even weakened in a vaccine, can pose problems for people whose immune systems are weak due to age or disease” (Zhang).

The two diseases may arise from the same virus, but they afflict different populations and that is key” (Zhang). Paragraph 8 : Compare how the effects of both of these create a public health concern and where the line needs to be drawn. Comparison: Gun rights vs mental health Vs Vaccination vs rights over bodies/our children’s bodies Burning Question: At what point does our right over our own bodies infringe on the rights and safety of others? Burning Question 2:

(rephrase to emphasize how they see public health differently) Possible Theses: Our rights over our bodies infringe on the rights and safety of others when they become a public health concern, for example when the debate for/against gun control does not prevent gun violence and when the debate for/against vaccines results in increased preventable diseases. Extra ideas: Building immunities using less antibiotics/outside influence Hypothesis?? Myths vs reality of opinion of science find sources from as many different types of things we could compare (opinions, legislation, coincidental autism cases, damage from anti-vaxxing vs good that comes from vaccinating ) Topics for paragraphs 1.

    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.
