Oops: Obama judicial appointee says we have right to keep arms, but not to bear them

Oops: Obama judicial appointee says we have right to keep arms, but not to bear them | Right to Bear Arms | Scoop.it

Check out TheDC's new Guns and Gear section for Second Amendment news, gun policy and reviews of the latest guns and gear.

1. This column is about a judge in Illinois comment that that "we have the right to keep arms, but not to bear them."

2. The author of the article gives information on:

     *what the second ammendment says on the right to bear arms

     *what the government says about our right to bear arms

3. The writer believes that we have a right to keep and bear arms for self defense.

4. Yes; the author says that "one of those rights [listed in the contitution] was the right to self-defense, and therefore the right not only to keep but also to bear the arms necessary to defend ourselves."

6. You learn that the author believes in a person's right to bear arms. You also learn that the author thinks that these rights should not be taken away.

7. This article was written for people who only want their right to bear arms in order to defend themselves instead of hunting or things like that. It was also written for people who are interested in learning about what some of our governmen officials are saying about our rights listed in the second ammendment.

8. The author does give me enough evidence to agree with him.  He gives me quotes from the Bill of Rights that support his ideas.

 

Part B

2. The writer of the article uses logos in order to get his point across.  He presents his beliefs and then uses quotes and ideas from people or documents that support his opinions.  For instance, when he says that he believes that people have the right to bear arms, he follows up his opinion with a quote from the second ammendment saying, “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 quote that he uses gives evidence that supports his opnion from the document to which he refers.  The author also uses a quote from an actual Supreme Court case involving the right to bear arms.  He says that, "the court also pointed out that “self defense is ‘the central component’ of the Second Amendment right.”  By using this quote, he gains support of his opnion from a current authority.

Editorial:Churches shouldn't be in schools - Newsday

Editorial:Churches shouldn't be in schools - Newsday | Right to Bear Arms | Scoop.it

NewsdayEditorial:Churches shouldn't be in schoolsNewsdayOpinion Newsday > Opinion Editorial Editorial:Churches shouldn't be in schools Published: February 8, 2012 6:40 PM A long battle over whether churches should be allowed to hold worship services...

1. This article is about a court case in New York involving a school that is holding weekly church services in its building.

2.In June the U.S. Court of Appeals supported the proh9bition of the services

   On Monday, the State Senate passed a bill that gave permission for the services to continue until it is voted on in Assembly

3. The writer believes that by havig weekly services, the school in New York is violating the separation of church and state.

4. The writer states his opinion directly he says that "The services violate long held principles on the separation of church and state, and they shouldn't be permitted."

6. From this article I learn that the columnist has very strict views on the separation of church and state and our duty to uphold this.

7. This article was written for the type of person who strongly supports the separation between church and state.  It is writte for people who want to know about situations where it is being disrupted.

8. The writer doesn't offer enough information for me to agree with him in this one instance.  I feel like I'm not getting enough information about the circumstances surrounding the weekly church services.

 

Part B

2.  In this article, the author uses logos in order to get his point across.  First, he presents his opinions openly by saying, "The services violate long held principles on the separation of church and state, and they shouldn't be permitted."  Next, he tells the reader what is allowed by law in schools in the way of religion.  He states that, "the courts have been clear that some religious-themed activities, such as student religious clubs, are permissible in public schools."  Then, he shows how he believes the school has violated the separation of church and state by saying that, "by hosting regular, weekly church services, school buildings become known in their communities as places of worship. They effectively become churches."He has therefore effectively stated his opinion by using logos.
