Aide/places and forms of power
Message de mimie29 posté le 11-04-2017 à 14:05:13 (S | E | F)
Bonjour !
Je suis en Terminale S et je passe mes oraux d'anglais début mai. J'aimerais bien de l'aide pour corriger mon texte.
Merci beaucoup d'avance pour votre aide !

Places and forms of power
I will present the notion "Places and forms of power". To speak of power is to speak of the relations established in our society between different members to exercise a right, an action on someone or something. To illustrate this notion, I will talk about the gun control in the USA. In America, bear a weapon is legal since 1791 with the Second Amendment. However, some people want to limit this law and to establish gun control. We will answer the question ''To what extent is gun control a topical issue in the USA ?''. First, I will talk about the consequences of the right to bear arms and then, I will explain why gun control can't be installed in the USA.

Firstly, I will talk about the consequences of the right to bear arms in the USA. In this country, there are many crimes or attacks with guns. As we can see in a poster of Brady campaign, in one year, guns murdered about 9 500 people in the USA. This number is really huge and it is much higher than in other countries where guns are controlled or prohibited like in Finland (17 dead), in Australia (35 dead) or in Germany (194 dead). In the USA, many shootings took place. In 1999, two students shot many people at Columbine High School, in Littleton, in Colorado. It was the most deadly shooting in a high school. In 2016, in Orlando, 50 people died in a shooting which took place in a nightclub frequented by gay people. It was the must deadly shooting of the US' story. These two shootings, like all other shootings, have upset american people.
So, the right to bear arms is at the origin of many shootings and many deaths. But, tragedies are repeated without changing anything.

Secondly, I will explain why gun control can't be installed in the USA. After the shooting in Orlando, Barack Obama wanted to take measures to control weapons and to avoid other shootings. For example, he wanted to make background checks compulsory. But, as all previous times, he didn't succeeded. Indeed, many American people feel safer with guns. They don't want to give them up. They have the right to bear weapons since the 2nd Amendment was written. It is in the law. Moreover, some lobbies make pressure on politicians to prevent them to set measures. It is the case of the NRA (National Rifle Association). Ten days after Columbine, Charlton Heston, the leader of the NRA come to Littleton for a big pro-gun rally. He said that nobody would stop him from carrying a gun and expressing his opinion. Despite the mourning, he has managed to rally many people.
So, american presidents or politicians try to establish a gun control, but, they are stopped by lobbies which put forward their rigths and the Second Amendment.
To conclude, on the one hand, weapons murdered many people and are at the origin of many shootings in the USA. But, on the other hand, american people don't want to establish a gun control because they have the right to bear arms since the 2nd Amendment. Furthermore, they are manipulate by lobbies. So, gun control is a topical issue in the USA.
