Sarah Delhotal, Ryan Schneider, Greg Zwiers
English 250 section VE
Brian compared the firearms laws of New York with those of Texas trying to find a middle ground for the nation between them. Texas has the most lenient gun laws of all the states, while New York has the most strict. In Texas there is no waiting period following purchase, concealed carry is allowed, and any type of firearm can be purchased with no need for state registration. On the other hand in New York, a permit is required to buy a gun along with the waiting period for the permit, record of sale and registration of firearms is required, and only hand guns can be purchased in the state. A short part was said about the constitutional issue of changing the second amendment.
All of Brian’s points were clearly presented and it was clearly based on a lot of research. There was a good balance between a conversational presentation and representing the information on the power point. His mediation basically admitted that the Systems in both places work well and should be implemented throughout the country. A potential weak point may be the open-endedness of the mediation, because Brian also said that leaving the issue up to the individual states might be the way to go. Brian did a very good job of handling the issues with the projector and gave his presentation well.
