Sammy Coble's insight:

This articles talking about the good and bad of the ATT. sr people say that it's good and will prevent violence and danger from happening. Others say that it's taking away people rights and protection. I personally think that guns shouldn't be banned people are going to find a way to cause harm one way or another.

This article is about a retired Army General who thinks Obama is leading the U.S. down the wrong path.  The general is pointing out that many things can go wrong if President Obama signs the United Nations Small Arms Treaty.

I agree with you totally Sammy. its part of the constitution that we have the right to bare arms and they will never be able to do it.
Abby Bisgard's comment, February 10, 2013 9:45 PM
Although I see where it is not right to ban guns, I do believe we need to control. I think Obama is taking a great initiative. Obviously our country has faced terrible events, and we need to find a way to fix it. There should be some restrictions on guns, but not a lot of restriction.

Obama, Seeking Re-Election, Asks for Patience | Government & Law! | Scoop.it
President Obama is making the case that while progress is slow, he is taking America to a better place — and that he will be a better president over the next four years than the last.
Sammy Coble's insight:

Obama has been told over and over again that he's not a good president, that he will never be a good president, and all this stuff putting him down. Obama is still going strong and holding up and knows that he will never be a perfect presidnt. He actually has said that.

Texting and driving? It’s against the law in 39 states - including California - but that hasn’t stopped many of us from reaching for the phone while we’re on the road....
Sammy Coble's insight:

This article talks about people still continuing to text and drive, no matter what restrictions are being set. It talks about many ways to prevent this from happening and how certain apps are available to help with this.

This is a good article but to prevent texting while driving why would they create apps to help with it. Apps still involve using your phone. In my opinion its no different.

The horrific Newtown school massacre has raised the question of why effective gun control is beyond the capacity of politicians. Banning guns is like taking away people's comfort and their rights.

Kaitlyn Joseph's comment, February 10, 2013 7:27 PM
Everyone is talking about gun control right now. I don't believe our country is focusing on the right thing. We need to worry more about the mental Health of people before we sell them guns. Not banning the ownership of guns.
MsHaeussinger's comment, February 11, 2013 11:55 AM
Great article Sammy! This begs the question - how far should gun rights be extended in this country?

George Washington's copies of Constitution, Bill of Rights sell for $9.8M

George Washington's copies of Constitution, Bill of Rights sell for $9.8M | Government & Law! | Scoop.it
George Washington's personal copy of the U.S. Constitution and a draft of the Bill of Rights sold for $9.8 million. I think it's crazy that it hasn't been available since 1964. His side notes and signature was on the constitution which is probably why it was so expensive.
