Alyssa Serrano's curator insight, February 26, 9:48 PM

This article is about the second amendment, the right to bear arms. The article is saying how President Obama wants to control the gun use in America. This article is interesting because most people are upset by the treaties he is passing, but they are also upset about how easy it is for criminals to obtain guns 

Rachel DeWaard's curator insight, April 23, 6:38 PM

The second amendment and gun control have been hot topics in recent news. With the many shootings lately, people have come to question the second amendment, the right to bare arms. More restrictions on fire arms would mean a safer country overall yet the people's freedoms on this topic would be limited. I am in favor of gun control, and new laws that limit the use of guns. I think that everyone wanting to buy a gun needs to have a serious background check before given said gun. This way it would keep guns out of the wrong hands but still follow the second amendment.

Breanne Hemann's comment, April 27, 12:05 AM
I agree that the amount of people with guns should be limited. However, how are we supposed to control who does and doesn't get guns? There are many people that are fine and then end up in a downward spiral before anyone could anticipate it. So how do we stop these people from endangering peoples' lives in the future if they have a clean background?

I want to know why he was beating that woman. If it is taking place in public, then people should be free to videotape it. It was not ok that the police deleted everything off that guy's phone; he had no right to do that!
Austin Robertson's curator insight, April 24, 12:44 AM

I think it is pretty sad to see how America is getting these days that the cops think it is okay to beat somebody right out in public. Sometimes the police have a right to be a little more firm, but on a girl, it shows how all of them are cowards, I don't care who you are, I don't care if your the president of the whole earth, you don't lay a hand in a girl. Those people who were recording the incident had every right ti video tape. It's there right, it's nit the polices property, they have no say. Last time I heard the police didn't own everything. 

Mitchell Forrest Enerson's comment, April 24, 8:26 PM
If the police really care about people seeing what is happening on these tapes then maybe they shouldn't be doing it in the first place. Police think they can get away with doing a lot of wrong because they have that gun on their hip. Well that gun means nothing once they don't have it anymore and they will just be citizens like everyone else.
