Doctor's Asking About Guns in the Home
Recently the discussion on the radio was about pediatricians asking parents about firearms in the household. I found an article with basic pros and cons to this subject. Law are put into place to keep the public safe, but sometimes those law start to step on the toes of Americans’ rights. Is it really necessary for my pediatrician to ask me about my gun collection or if I even have one? The Second Amendment is a powerful one, but people are making it difficult for any ordinary citizen to enjoy this right.
According to (Constitution.org, 10/1), the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights says, “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.” (Constitution.org, 11/2) says “The militia, when properly formed, is in fact the people themselves….all men capable of bearing arms.” The Second Amendment was ultimately formed so that the government cannot become too strong and overpower the people. This means anyone in America has the right to bear arms. Now I understand the need to put some regulation on this right for obvious reasons. But what I do not understand is what having a gun has to do with my children’s well baby check-ups.
When reading this article Kids and Guns: Why Doctors Have a Right to Know, it say how a pediatrician told the mother of his patient the if she did not provide the information about whether or not she had any guns in the house, she was going to have to find a new pediatrician (Cohen, 09/1). It goes on to say that the government is not trying to interfere with people’s right to use and own guns, it is about doctors asking because they have good medical reason to ask. I pose the question, what constitutes a…...

Right to Bear Arms

...Right to Bear Arms and The Second Amendment October 20, 2010 Should only the criminals be allowed to own guns that they buy from the Black-market? Ask yourself this question next time you vote. A coalition of gun control groups and some politicians are trying to get the Second Amendment changed so that millions of Americans can’t and won’t be able to own guns legally in the United States. The Second Amendment reads: 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. The number of well-publicized public shootings during the past few years, especially the tragedy at Columbine High School, has re-energized the gun control movement. As a show of strength coalition of gun control groups have organized many protests. These types of events are designed to stir up emotions rather than promote rational thought. And when one looks at the facts about gun control, it's easy to see why the anti-gun lobby relies on emotion rather than logic to make its case. Some of their facts are: Thousands of children die annually in gun accidents. Actually the truth is that gun accidents involving children are actually at record lows, although you wouldn't know it from listening to the mainstream media. In 2008, the last year for which data are available, only 142 children under 15 years of age died in gun accidents, and the total number of gun-related deaths for this age group was 642. More...

Dying Bear

...The Dying Bear             Russia's Demographic Disaster By Nicholas Eberstadt  November/December 2011    December marks the 20th anniversary of the end of the Soviet dictatorship and the beginning of Russia's post communist transition. For Russians, the intervening years have been full of elation and promise but also unexpected trouble and disappointment. Perhaps of all the painful developments in Russian society since the Soviet collapse, the most surprising -- and dismaying -- is the country's demographic decline. Over the past two decades, Russia has been caught in the grip of a devastating and highly anomalous peacetime population crisis. The country's population has been shrinking, its mortality levels are nothing short of catastrophic, and its human resources appear to be dangerously eroding. Indeed, the troubles caused by Russia's population trends -- in health, education, family formation, and other spheres -- represent a previously unprecedented phenomenon for an urbanized, literate society not at war. Such demographic problems are far outside the norm for both developed and less developed countries today; what is more, their causes are not entirely understood. There is also little evidence that Russia's political leadership has been able to enact policies that have any long-term hope of correcting this slide. This peacetime population crisis threatens Russia's economic outlook, its ambitions to modernize and develop, and quite possibly its security. In...

Arm Circle Essay

... stimulated. Arm circles do not provide enough of a resistance to overload and damage your muscles. In addition to arm circles not providing enough of a resistance to overload your muscles properly to stimulate development, they also don't target your biceps and triceps muscle groups. If you're looking to tone your arms, incorporate weight-training exercises that are effective at developing your deltoids, biceps and triceps. Parts of the Body Arm Circles Target Arm circles are typically used during warm-ups to increase blood flow and the temperature of your upper body. They loosen up your shoulder joints and are great to do before doing a more intense workout. However, they do not provide enough of a stimulus to cause the muscles in your arms to tone. When doing your arm circles you are using your shoulder muscles, also known as your deltoids. Your deltoids are one of the three major muscle groups in your arms. As said before, arm circles will not stimulate your deltoids to the point in which they are tired or Fatigued. If you want to build muscle especially your deltoids, use a workout with much more Resistance . The Best Workouts for the Deltoids Men and women both have different bodies. Some parts of the body are the same but the Differences do make a difference. Men are more stronger in their upper body than women and Are less prone to shoulder injury. This allows men to lift heavier weights when......

Modest Proposal: Right to Bear Arms

...Kendra Monteith B6 February 20, 2013 2nd Amendment and the Right to Bear Arms When people here about mass killings involving fire arms, they automatically think it’s the guns fault. As if the gun fired on its own. This makes people think that our right to own fire arms should be taken away. Take a second and think about this, who was holding the gun? The majority of mass killings are done by someone that has a mental illness. We wouldn’t have to take away our right to bear arms if we figured out what to do about people with a mental illness. Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and autism are the 3 main illnesses that the mass killers tend to have. Autism is usually detected early. Sometimes it is detected even before a child is born. Once it is figured out that a child will be autistic, they should be eliminated. This way we have taken out a potential threat to our community. The majority of schizophrenia cases are usually detected at the age 20. Bipolar disorder is normally diagnosed in teen years or early, most before the age of 25. Making it mandatory that every person at the age of 18 to be tested for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, whether they show symptoms or not, then every 2 years after that. Should someone refuse to get tested they would be sentenced to death. If a person should notice someone with symptoms before they are 18, they should contact local law enforcement so that the person is taken to get tested right away. Once a person is diagnosed...

The Right to Keep and Bear Arms

...The Right to Keep and Bear Arms: A Right to Self-Defense Against Criminals and Despots by Robert Dowlut[*] If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. -- James Madison[1] INTRODUCTION A written constitution is a reminder that governments can be unreasonable and unjust. By guaranteeing 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," the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution provides the citizens a means of protection against the unjust excesses of government.[2] The Framers placed this guarantee in the Bill of Rights because they considered the right to keep and bear arms peculiarly important and also uniquely vulnerable to infringement. The Amendment's command protects individuals against even popular conceptions of the public good. In addition to this protection within the United States Constitution,[3] the constitutions of forty-three states guarantee the right to keep and bear arms.[4] Despite the constitutional authority for this right, legislators and judges have consistently attempted to devalue it. Methods such as giving misleading labels to select firearms like "assault weapons"[5] or "Saturday Night Specials"[6] have been used to justify incremental disarmament.[7] American jurisprudence has deliberately devalued the...

(4) Available-for sale financial assets, prepaid expenses and other assets, and other intangible assets Prepaid expenses and other assets at 31 December 2012 included an advance payment amounting to £103.7 million, being the Group’s contribution to a consortium to acquire rights to MIPS Technologies, Inc’s portfolio of patents. This transaction was completed on 6 February 2013. Of the Group’s total contribution, £62.1 million (after translation at 30 September 2013 exchange rates) has been classified within current available-for-sale financial assets and £38.6 million (after amortisation to 30 September 2013) has been classified within other intangible assets. The available-for-sale financial asset represents the right to receive cash from the Group's financial interest in the consortium. The other intangible asset consists of intellectual property rights that are being amortised over a period of eight and a half years, being the average remaining life of the underlying patent portfolio. The allocation of the Group’s total contribution between available-for-sale financial asset and intangible asset reflected, primarily, ARM’s initial expectations of future cash flows from its financial interest in the consortium. Various alternative mechanisms for realising ARM’s financial interest in the consortium are under consideration, which might, in future quarters, give rise to changes in......

Pooh Bear

... Canadian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn in White River, Ontario, Canada, while en route to England during the First World War. He named the bear "Winnie" after his adopted hometown in Winnipeg, Manitoba. "Winnie" was surreptitiously brought to England with her owner, and gained unofficial recognition as The Fort Garry Horse regimental mascot. Colebourn left Winnie at the London Zoo while he and his unit were in France; after the war she was officially donated to the zoo, as she had become a much loved attraction there. Pooh the swan appears as a character in its own right in When We Were Very Young. In the first chapter of Winnie-the-Pooh, Milne offers this explanation of why Winnie-the-Pooh is often called simply "Pooh": Ashdown Forest: the setting for the stories The Winnie-the-Pooh stories are set in Ashdown Forest, Sussex, England. The forest is a large area of tranquil open heathland on the highest sandy ridges of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty situated 30 miles south of London. In 1925 Milne, a Londoner, bought a country home a mile to the north of the forest at Cotchford Farm, near Hartfield. According to Christopher Milne, while his father continued to live in London "...the four of us—he, his wife, his son and his son's nanny—would pile into a large blue, chauffeur-driven Fiat and travel down every Saturday morning and back again every Monday afternoon. And we would spend a whole glorious month there in the spring and two months in the......

Arm the Children

...Arm the Children We have developed solutions in order to protect innocent children in school during random school shootings. Our solutions will also prevent future school shootings. Children that are isolated from guns causes more harm. Children will be armed with guns. Training children how to operate, shoot and defend themselves should begin at age 4 or when the child enters pre-school. Children will be required to learn how to treat and respect a gun. More firearms are the answer. First we will teach gun safety. Children will be trained and practice daily at the rifle range. Once a child is at 80% target efficiency, training will cease. Children are required to play with guns as much and with other toys on a regular basis. Children will be prepared and be able to defend themselves. If they die in a shooting, at least they will have died defending themselves. Parents might miss them but they will know that their kids died with honor and defending themselves. Kids will be less likely to take a gun to school or go on a wild rampage with a gun than someone who hasn’t been taught respect and use of firearms. If children are taught properly, there will be less accidental shootings Children age 4 to 8 will be armed with a .22, children ages 9to 13 with .37 and ages 14 to 18 with a semi-automatic rifles. Older children get an adrenaline rush with more available shots. They will look forward to shooting at a target and ultimately killing......

Right to Bear Arms

...The second amendment states “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Our Founding Fathers believed that governments are prone to use soldiers to oppress the people. History had suggested that this risk could be controlled by permitting the government to raise armies (consisting of full-time paid troops) only when needed to fight foreign enemies. “We established however some, although not all its (self-government) important principles. The constitutions of most of our states assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent; (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or may they act by representatives, freely and equally chosen that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed” (Jefferson). Gun control has been a highly controversial issue for decades. A vast majority of Americans believe that if gun control is strictly enforced it would quickly reduce the threat of crime. Many innocent people feel they have the right to bear arms for protection, or even just the pleasure of recreational sports, such as hunting. Americans have a constitutional right to own hand guns. Although, stricter laws and licensing may not affectively abolish crime, it will help to make it more...

Polar Bear

...SPECIES- Ursus Maritimus, Polar Bear, lord of the Arctic. Lives in an area of five million square miles of snow and ice. From Siberia to Alaska and across Canada, Greenland and the Islands north of Norway, he is the master of all living things except man. It lives in the brutal cold, ice, and snow. The temperature can plunge down frequently to -40 degrees and sometimes even lower but that does not bother the polar bear because of its color-less skin and layer of insulation fat. Its range extending around the northern polar region. Necessities of Life-The polar bear eats mostly seals which he has to hunt. His trick is to wait by a breathing in the ice and when a seal comes up by that breathing hole, he grabs it so fast it knocks it unconscious and then he eats it. Other pray is a walrus calf or a musk ox stuck in snow, birds, eggs, fish, and dead whales. And sometimes in the summer it eats berries and grass. The polar bear has no water to drink so it only eats the skin and blubber, avoiding the meat. So by eating the blubber and leaving the meat the male bear is helping keep his body in balance with the surrounding environment. The bear would usually stay in a den or bury it self in the snow to avoid the suns ultra violent rays. Usually the pregnant female polar bear stays in the den.Food Chain-The polar bear finds its way on the top of its food chain. No predator on earth approaches the bear in size. The polar bear towers over everything else in his food chain...
