Could Stricter Laws on Purchasing a Gun Help Prevent Shootings?

The second amendment to the US Constitution states that a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. Every American has been raised to believe that they have that right to own a gun when they become 18 and that is just their American right, but arethe_second_amendment_by_personofinterests-d7iadgw.png
some people too invested in their gun ownership? Times are beginning to change, public places aren’t as safe as they used to be and some civilians are blaming the guns. This is a very controversial topic that has been discussed many of times. There is an estimated 55 million Americans who own guns. The percentage of people who own guns decreased from 25% in 1994 to 22% last year. There is also an estimated amount of 300,000 to 600,000 guns that are stolen yearly. The US tops the list of countries with the most guns. The United States owns about half of the worlds guns while only taking up 5% of the world population.

Does Teen Mom/16 and Pregnant promote or prevent teen pregnancy?

Teen Mom 2/OG and 16 and Pregnant are television shows broadcasted nationally about the lives of teenage mothers and the struggles they may face. Six pregnant teenagers allowed MTV to film their pregnancies hoping to encourage the young viewers to wait to start their families. After four years of being on television, teen pregnancy rates have dropped drastically. From 2009-2010, the rates had dropped nine percent reaching a historic low of 34.3 births per 1,000 women between the ages of 15-19. This rate is higher than any other developed country, where typical rates of teen childbearing are more often in the range of 5 to 10 births per 1,000 girls in this age group and it is said that four out of five teenagers pregnancies are unintentional. Since 16 and Pregnant was first aired in the summer of 2009, it is tempting to wonder whether or not the show was responsible for this drop in teen pregnancy. This rate dropped faster in area where teenagers were watching more MTV programming. Also, many of the show’s stars became celebrities and appeared on the cover of People Magazine, which could be another problem. Teenagers are under the impression that having a child in high school is one way to get attention, and famous. “Maybe that’s what’s drawing viewers’ attention,” Teen Mom OG star, Farrah Abraham stated.

Should we join the military?

Hard headed or strong minded Sometimes when you go into the military you need to be both. Going into the military affects you physically and mentally, it’s not an easy thing to do and it’s not for everyone. Some people known from early on in their life that want or are made to go into the military or the navy. While others parents kinda push them to go into the military or some type of service probably because they did and their parents did and they want the tradition or service to continue on.

Although some people join for expenses. For example full medical coverage for you and your family. Once you join the military and you become a member you receive immediate full health benefits for themselves and their intermediate family; not your long distance step cousin.

Another example would be college or skills and training. The military provides advanced technical training in variety of career fields. Also many military members are able to attend college that is usually paid for by tuition assistance. Some people go straight into the military after high school because they can’t afford schooling and need assistance so they join and receive the tuition assistance.
