    The right to keep and bear arms is a vital element of the liberal order that our Founders handed down to us. They understood that those who hold political power will almost always strive to reduce the freedom of those they rule and that many of the ruled will always be tempted to trade their liberty for empty promises of security. The causes of these political phenomena are sown in the nature of man.

    The U.S. Constitution, including the Second Amendment, is a device designed to frustrate the domineering tendencies of the politically ambitious. The Second Amendment also plays an important role in fostering the kind of civic virtue that resists the cowardly urge to trade liberty for an illusion of safety. Armed citizens take responsibility for their own security, thereby exhibiting and cultivating the self-reliance and vigorous spirit that are ultimately indispensable for genuine self-government.

    Over the last decade, an industrious band of lawyers, historians, and criminologists has created a vast outpouring of articles justifying individual gun ownership on the basis of the Second Amendment: “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.”

    This body of commentary, much of it published in refereed law journals, has changed attitudes toward the Second Amendment. The National Rifle Association’s lobbyists distribute it to legislators. Journalists like Michael Kinsley and George Will disseminate this school’s views. Members of it now claim, on the basis of their work’s quantity and what they believe is its quality, that scholarship on this subject is now all theirs so that even to hold an opposing view is enough to “discredit its supporters,” according to the historian Joyce Lee Malcolm. 1

    I suffer from SP too! Not many people do, though, which I think makes it a great topic (especially if you have to read it, or share it). If you reseach the subject more and talk a bit about the "scarier" aspect of it, I think that would make it extremely interesting, too! As for the question of appropriateness. I suppose it would depend what class you re in, but generally I don t think this subject would pose any problems, or anything? Good luck!

    Not much is being done to protect polar bears from becoming extinct. Global warming must be controlled so that the Polar ice does not completely melt as the Polar Bears food source are seals which makes air holes in the ice to come up and breathe and the Polar Bear is there waiting for the seal. Without ice it would be almost impossible for a Polar Bear to catch a seal.
