Gun violence in the US

Today we have investigated the gun laws and some statistics in America. We have been shocked about the gun laws. People can buy a weapon without a permit or any background check of the individual. But the statistics shows that over 60 % of the American population really wants to change the laws about guns. So, why wont they? I believe that money plays a big role in not wanting to have stricter gun laws.  

The right to keep and bear arms is protected by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, although there was a lack of clear federal court rulings defining the right until the US Supreme court ruled that it protects any individual’s right to keep and bear arms unconnected with service in a militia for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defence within the home. 

About eight-in-ten Black adults (82%) say gun violence is a very big problem– by far the largest share of any racial or ethnic group. By comparison, about six-in-ten Hispanic adults (58%) and 39% of White adults view gun violence this way. 

Today, a large majority of Democrats and Democratic leaners (81%) say gun laws should be stricter, though this share has declined slightly since 2019 (down from 86%). 

Freedom of the press

After taking a look at the freedom of press map i found some results that surprised me.

Costa Rica is surrounded by red (low freedom of press) countries, but still manages to come in at 5th highest ranking in the world! The country lays in a region filled with corruption, where constant violence and crime is committed against the media.

Jamaica, despite being neighbor to Cuba, a black country (worst level of freedom of press) it is one of the countries with best freedom of press rating, and comes in at a 5th place on a global scale.

Human Rights

Today there are several human rights being broken every single day around the world, lets take a look at some of these.

In some countries, people are not provided with clean water, or healthcare. Children are victims of horrible deceases such as Pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria. These alone kill over 1 million people in Africa alone, and no-one is there to save them.

Another huge issue is the poverty in places like this. People in Africa e.t.c need help with tasks around the house such as farming, and due to lack of money to hire workers they make multiple kids to work for free. This makes the population grow unbelievably fast and they need more and more resources to feed and keep the citizens healthy. How are they supposed to do that when they’re already struggling and the populations is growing every day?

Todays Afghanistan

It’s been about a month since the Taliban overtook Afghanistan, so lets take a look at what’s happened since!

The whole world has been watching as the country’s new boss has started to change everything. The people of Afghanistan have already started demonstrations and “rioting” against the group. Although the Taliban didn’t seen to happy about this and “banned” demonstrating.

In Kabul 1996 girls weren’t allowed to go to school and female teachers were told to “stay at home”. But since the Taliban conquered Afghanistan, girls have now been given permission to go to school and studies show that around 40% of girls are currently in school, getting the education they deserve.

The Kite Runner

Amir realizes that one day he must return to Afghanistan under the Taliban rule to find the one thing his new world can’t grand him; Redemption. (Plot)

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
