Anti-Gun Propaganda and Controlling Violent Crime


Interesting factoid:
The USA's Gun Control Act of 1968 is taken, nearly word-for-word, from the Nazi's Gun Control Law of 1938.

I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by the gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations.
-- James Madison (1751-1836), 6 June 1788, in the Virginia Convention on the ratification of the Constitution, in "Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution," Jonathan Elliot, ed., v.3 p.87, Philadelphia, 1836.

I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.
-- Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906)

[more excellent quotes]


This is a position paper I wrote for a speech class. I realize it covers an emotionally loaded topic, and I don't expect everyone to agree with it. A bit of background information: the footnotes are, in my admittedly biased opinion, well worth reading, as I included some information that came my way after the paper was handed in. Also, they include commentary from my professor, and my responses to her comments.

I have yet to scan the pictures in, unfortunately, although I have managed to put in graphs finally, thank goodness.
