    Get a Knife, Get a Dog, but Get Rid of Guns by Molly Ivins
    1. The author talks about why people shouldn’t use guns. She would that people use knives to kill because the ricochet when you clean them. And you get good exercise chasing after the person you’re trying to kill. She feels the only people who should have guns are people in the military. She feels if an individual needs some protection they should get a dog rather than use a gun.
    2. Perforating- To pass into or through something.
    3. I agree with the author individuals should not have unless they’re in the military.
    4. I don’t agree with the knives theory because I am scared of knives to a certain extinct.
    5. Do you carry any weapons on you? What would you say to the author is you had a chance to meet her? What did you get out of this story?
    6. Examine the analogy between gun and cars. How does that hold up? Where does it break down? They both kill people, but they don’t kill everyone. There are some survivors. Some people use gun for self defense. People who cause accidents can’t drive.

I think Molly Ivins is a very outspoken author in all her books and authors.She gets that credibility.However, she uses words that are rather spiteful like in some of her essays she uses,..."fool","damn" as in "Get a knife, get a dog but get rid of guns"and so forth.I do get the clear picture that she is passionate about what she talks about but foul language isn't the essence of a proper essay in English . I agree with the idea that knives would save so many people's life as compared to guns, though the author needs to have some sort of way of putting her point across in a way that she should earn the reader's respect, a typical essence of a persuasive essay.Molly Ivins cleary indicates that we should all accept her way clearly indicated throughout her writting.
