Topic Identified: Should citizens be permitted to
carry a concealed weapon to their workplace?
Allowing citizens to
carry concealed weapons to their workplace as they pose a potential risk to
the workplace violence. Security
is becoming a global issue all around the world. There are two major reason I chose this
topic. The first major reason is citizens
do carry weapons for self-defense and mitigate chances of being attacked. The second major reasons is there is a risk
in this as some of the citizens may become lawless and abuse the freedom to
life. Every freedom must come with limits. Everybody has right to security and right to
life. This paper will argue a case
against citizens’ carrying weapons to the workplace. The rationale behind this is incidences of
Describe three (3) major characteristics of your
audience (official position, decision-making power, current view on topic, and
other important characteristics).
The research is meant
to seek audience with one, law makers.
It is the law makers that are responsible for enacting laws such as the
one that would allow carrying of concealed weapons just as they are responsible
for making stricter gun laws (Bruce & Clyde, 1998). In addition to that, another characteristic
of the audience to the research is the people of similar opinion. These are, especially, people of influence in
the society that feel they may be at risk of attacks from people of ill
intent. In addition to those of similar
opinion, people of opposite opinion is also a characteristic of the audience
sought in this paper. It is upon reading
the research that they shall realize that allowing concealed weapon does not
mean an increase in crime. The audience
includes children going to school, workers in the construction company, and
workers in public offices. The workplace
includes office, school and construction site.
Weapons in offices will threaten other employees, while in school will
inflict fear among school going children.
Possession of weapons will induce essence of abuse and infringement of
right of other citizens in the workplace.
A citizen is required by law to apply for a weapon permit and use it the
legal and responsible manner. Challenges
in life makes citizens frustrated and resort to take lives. This is a threat with using concealed weapons
in the workplace. State law departments
require citizens to be law abiding. It
is the responsibility of the government to provide security to all
citizens. Security ought not to be a
personal responsibility but rather a public function.
