The Presidential Candidates Al Gore versus George Bush

The United States is in a very unusual situation right now as most people know. We still
haven’t come up with a president. The effects of the candidate we elect for our next president
may change my life and may not. If Bush is elected, everything I believe and stand up for will
stay the same. I really hope he will become the next president because he will ensure the
protection of my rights. If Gore were elected as our next president, my life could seriously be

all of our rights from us. This is exactly what happened to Germany when Hitler started taking
over. He took the peoples rights and then took over the country. This is what could happen if
things really went bad. We probably won’t have to worry about that happening, but harsh gun
control laws could ruin the hunting tradition for me and my family and future family. We can’t
let this happen. There are billions of people who love to hunt just like I do, and people who
support gun control are trying to take hunting away from us.
There are some other effects of gun control that could...
