               Many times throughout history people have asked if torture is ethical or even effective for that matter.  In John W. Scheimann’s article on interrogational torture Scheimann “aims to provide insight on an important—but less systematically examined—aspect of this problem: the effectiveness of interrogational torture in revealing clear and accurate information to the state,” (Scheimann 2012).  As mentioned in the article, the analysis of the effectiveness of torture is completely theoretical due to the lack of documentation and evidence.

In the article, “Gun Control Overview: Prevalence of Gun Use and the Regulatory Response” included in Congressional Digest the author has a fairly compelling argument supporting the Gun Control laws. According to the article, the general trend of violent crimes involving guns has been decreasing overall. For example, the rate of gun related homicides per 100,000 people decreased from 3.6 in 2000 to 3.2 in 2010 (Gun Control, 2). Although this statistic may be true, many people still protest the gun laws for many reasons that are quite compelling. Anywhere from being based on Constitutional Rights to the ideological and social values of the American people.
