White Paper-NewEditionLover

Content Description-  How can we prevent gun violence, the dangers of gun violence, losing loved ones because of this tragedy.

I will be examining the illegal use of gun violence and how it should be stricter laws on how to get and purchase guns! My argument will go into detail of how gun violence in the United States is getting worse and their should be more laws restricting people getting firearms.

1. The Benefits of Reducing Gun Violence: Evidence from Contingent-Valuation Survey Data

Also discussed   they stated that here is an emerging consensus that certain gun laws reduce gun violence, particularly those requiring all gun buyers to first pass background checks, and those barring domestic abusers from possessing guns.

4. Implementing a Public Health Approach to Gun Violence Prevention: The Importance of Physician Engagement

The Essential Content Of The Article -He referenced survey findings indicating that most physicians viewed gun violence as a public health problem and that they supported a more active role for the profession in preventing it.  Fear has also shaped the gun policy debate. Whether to muster support for “stand your ground” laws or rally in opposition to proposals that would track gun purchases to aid law enforcement investigations, fear is an element of how we talk about guns.

What it Proves- This article proves there are many laws representing guns and many people support it . Also the study of people viewing to look into getting guns need to be evaluated to see if they are mentally competent.

5. Rates of intimate partner violence in the United States.

The Essential Content Of The Article- surveys conducted on inmate violence due to the range of gun violence on female to male ratio of violence interactions.

What it Proves- Study the issue and level of violence of inmates that are incarcerated. The ratio from women to men are estimated from partner violence.

  1. Working Hypothesis-  Gun Violence is very terrible and is making our country worse and we have to put a stop to it!
  2. 1A Working Hypothesis #2- how do we stop gun violence ?
  3. Topics For Small Papers-Definition/Classification  Argument- The result of gun violence is causing deaths and depriving families of loved ones due to physical harm. This demonstrates that we need to do something before more people have to suffer and lose their loved ones also.
  4. Rebuttal Argument-Guns should be allowed because it is a necessary form of self defense and protection.
  5. Current State Of The Research Paper- So far I’m glad I switched the topic from Marijuana to gun violence. I say this because I have more experience and knowledge on this topic due to the killing of my father which occurred in July of 2011. My opinions on guns have grown worse and we really need to help and make  change before others lose loved ones to this nonsense. I anticipate my outcome of proving and showing how something has to be done about gun violence as it is rapidly growing worse. I know that I have some work to do organizing my ideas but I feel my opinion and personal experience’s can help me have a good Research Paper Argument.

    Hey, New Edition! This is an important topic, and I’m glad you’ve decided to tackle it. Let’s first agree that you shouldn’t have to prove that gun violence is terrible. You’ve only got 3000 words to spend, and it would take MANY MANY more to do justice to any solution you might have to offer. Certainly by now other writers have spent hundreds of thousands of words suggesting ways to reduce gun violence. Your job is to choose a thesis small enough to do justice in a short paper.

    Content Description- How can we prevent gun violence, the dangers of gun violence, losing loved ones because of this tragedy.

    You describe your project this way: “I will be examining the illegal use of gun violence and how it should be stricter laws on how to get and purchase guns! My argument will go into detail of how gun violence in the United States is getting worse and their should be more laws restricting people getting firearms.”

    Let’s distill that statement into a thesis: To reduce gun violence, we should restrict the legal purchase of guns.

    That still leaves lots of room to narrow your argument further.
    —Should we restrict the number of guns a person can buy?
    —Should we restrict purchase by all felons?
    —Should we restrict the purchase by anyone who has sought mental health counseling? anyone who is receiving mental health treatment? anyone who has been diagnosed with anger management issues? anyone who has been convicted of a violent crime? anyone with a diagnosed mental health disorder? anyone who has had a domestic violence incident? anyone who has been slapped with a restraining order?

    See how big your issue still is?
    I promise you many writers have spent 3000 words on the SINGLE CLAIM that gun purchases should be denied to applicants who have a restraining order.

    I applaud your decision to use your personal experience as part of your argument, but you should consider that an opportunity to NARROW your argument to the particulars of your own family’s case. What restrictions that you plan to demand would have kept a gun out of the hands of the perpetrator(s) in your personal case study? You may need to speculate unless you’re very familiar with the facts of the case, but you could be very persuasive if you know enough about it to draw a clear cause-and-effect demonstration.

    Is this helpful, NewEdition?
    I’d appreciate your reactions.
