For gun owners, a core belief: guns make us safer

For many gun owners, firearms are first and foremost a tool of protection. At Thunderbird Firearms Academy in Wichita, Kan., staff train civilians in highly realistic scenarios to practice defending t

This article talks about the gun control and why guns are used in homes. It mentions how many people use guns for defense and not to kill people. There as some bias involved in this article. This was a conservative View because the women interviewed talks about how she uses guns to defend herself and friends and family.

The branch in check is the legislative branch because that branch helps create the laws and has the right to restrict gun use. I do think it is effective because if they get the restriction of gun use wrong, a lot of Americans would be really upset. I also think this is effective because the executive branch can always send the bill back if it does not work.

OUR OPINION: Robert Mueller should be allowed to finish what he started

As we write this, Robert Mueller remains on the job.

This article talks about the investigation of the executive branch. It talks about how Trump is under a lot of pressure because of the Russian investigation during the 2016 presidential election. There is bias in this article. The article mainly talks about the firing of Robert Meuller. This article has a liberal point of view. For example, it calls out Trump for his Twitter crusade and criticized Trump for not letting Meuller finish what he started.

In this situation, the executive branch is under check. I believe this is effective but not effective at the same time. I believe it is effective because it keeps Trump under check when he fires someone in the government. I believe it is not effective because the president makes the calls in the office whether it’s personal or laws.

Checks and balances: Meyer will be next county treasurer

DIXON – The city’s finance director will be taking her government accounting experience to the county as its first new treasurer in more than 2 decades.

This article talks about a county treasurer that was recently running for the head of that area in the government. It talks about how she has been running for that position for almost two decades. In this article there was some bias involved. This article came from a conservative View. For example, the article mentions how many she won by over the democratic opponent.

In this situation, the branch in check is the executive branch. I believe this is effective for a couple reasons. One reason is that it makes sure people do not over run their amount of terms in their respective office. I also think it is effective because it gives different people a chance to run for office.

Wisconsin state treasurer an important check on Gov. Scott Walker's executive power

Wisconsin's state treasurer has few duties but taxpayers would benefit it the office was more robust.

This article talks about a treasurer in Wisconsin is using the checks and balance method on Scott Walker executive power. Scott Walker is the governor of Wisconsin. The article talks about how some responsibilities should passed over to another person instead of having the treasurer taking all of the responsibilities. This article had some bias involved. The article comes from a conservative View because the article praises how a former governor removed some responsibility to create responsibilities for other parts of the government.

The branch that is being checked is the executive branch. I believe this is effective because it can help others do something instead of doing nothing during their time in office. I also find this effective because it can help the government become more stable.
