    Persuasive Essay In Favour Of Abolishing Hunting

    1001 words, 5 pages

    Beauty and the Beast-Who is Whom? Hunting should be prohibited because it is all too simple for hunters to abuse regulations. Firstly, there is no way to be certain whether or not hunters comply with limits established in regards to the amount of animals they are allowed to kill, and where they are allowed to hunt. Every occurrence in a hunting expedition cannot be monitored and therefore hunters are essentially “allowed” to do as they please. The overconfidence that ensues leads to hunters taking even more lives than they are permitted. As well, hunters have the a

    Black Elk

    1002 words, 5 pages

    Black Elk’s vision has been very thought provoking and interesting to me. During my day I will get sidetracked thinking about Black Elk, the interpretation of his vision, and the scientific theories possible. After thorough research and reading the vision several times, I have come to the conclusion that both sides are feasible, but it depends on one’s background in religion, and their desires to accept other’s religions without being biased to their own beliefs. I want to discuss both sides of Black Elk’s vision to emphasize that there are scientific causes that could have occurred, but the

    Hunting

    Deer Hunting It was a beautiful October afternoon as I climbed to the top of my tree stand. The sun was shining, and a slight breeze was blowing from the northwest. I knew the deer frequented the area around my stand since my step-dad had shot a nice doe two days earlier from the same stand. Signs of deer were everywhere in the area. When I say “sign” I mean not twenty yards from the stand was a rub line, two trails coming together leading out, and on the outskirts a scrape. A “rub” is when a buck rubs his horns on a tree so often that the bark is removed and the tree

    Animal Rights “What is man without the beast? If the beast were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beast soon happens to man” (Chief Seattle). While much has been done to protect animals, it is nowhere near what needs to be done to secure their inhabitance on earth and give them their rights. Animals have nerves so they can feel pain and they do suffer so is it right to put them through that by experimenting on them. Additionally if more of the world’s animals are not protected a lot more will be extinct in the coming year

    Gun Control Laws

    1508 words, 7 pages

    The second amendment, which protects citizens’ right to keep and bear arms, is part of the Bill of Rights in The United States Constitution. This amendment was written to give law abiding citizens the right to own guns for hunting, sporting, and protection purposes. However, over time, it seems that this amendment has been challenged and interpreted to the point of distorting the original intention of the right. Today, citizens can freely purchase weapons that can be used for hurting others. In light of the fact that gun violence continues to increase in occurrence and severity, thorough ment
