Should burkas be banned?
Depends. Burkas and headscarves are not the same thing, and as much as I want the burkas to be banned.. people have to respect others' religious rights. We don't ask someone and get their permission to wear something as simple as earrings do we? So why should Muslims, or women that wear these things have them taken away from them? Pretty unfair I reckon.

NO! Human beings have the right to make their own decisions. Yes fast food is unhealthy and can be linked to many medical problems such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, BUT that is no reason for it to be banned. It is wrong for a government to tell the people that they can't eat fast food…. There are many things in life that are bad for us and it is up to the INDIVIDUAL to make their own choices concerning their life, their liberty, their happiness, and yes even their health. (MORE)
Because fossil fuels are what drives the engine of capitalism, and capitalism is evil, evil. Because fossil fuels is what gives people the freedom to move around as much as they want, and we can't have that. Because fossil fuels make it possible to grow food in huge abundance, enabling farmers to fe…ed billions of people, and the world is overpopulated, and we would be much better off if there were several billion less people in the world. Because if fossil fuels were banned, the world economy would collapse and human society would revert to the stone age, and we all know that would be better for the planet.. This is what the so-called "environmentalists" want. The destruction of capitalism; the end of personal freedom; the absolute power of the State; massive population reduction; subsistence farming; stone age society. Banning fossil fuels will accomplish that. (MORE)
I don't want to ban them; they're helpful in emergencies. But, people why use them in public places and then yell like they and their listener are deaf? Plus, they talk for too long. These should be limited in these places:. At meetings (if it's not an emergency, take a message) . At theaters …(if it's not an emergency, take a message) . At places of Worship (if it's not an emergency, take a message) . Walking around in public (it could be brief if you need directions) . DRIVING A CAR (pull over if you need to get directions) . While they are eating (pull over if you need to eat) . At social occasions. (if it's not an emergency, take a message) . When they should be spending time with their children (Two parents were at a mall with a child, about five walking from their car, holding the child's hands and talking away on their cell phones. You could tell the child wanted to talk to his parents, but they were too busy on their phones). I know cell phones have helped in communications with very busy people, but there is a time and a place for everything. Also, those loud, stupid ringtones; they could put the phone on vibrate , or even turn it off for a while. PLEASE!!! (MORE)
Hunting should be banned because a lot of animals are getting endangered and right now it is happening even though we need some for food. My opinion is it should be banned all over the world. Answer: Hunting shouldn't be banned. While the above answer said that animals were becoming endangered,… typical game animals (deer, turkey, etc.) are actually overpopulated. Even safari animals (lions, cape buffalo, elephants, etc.) are regulated as to make sure that there are enough. No animal has ever become extinct because of sport hunting. Also, most people think hunting should be banned because animals are killed. Well, you should outlaw walking, too, because every time you take a step, you kill 2,000,000,000 living things. Now, I don't agree with the hunters who just sit in a tree and shoot everything that moves. That isn't hunting. Real hunters track animals, and carefully select which one they kill, and make sure the animal doesn't suffer. They then use every part of the animal, which is more than can be said for any commercial food company. I hunt the way I stated above, yet every day, I must defend myself from people who say I'm Satan for hunting. Answer: I do not believe that this is a question anyone has a right to claim they have the absolutely right opinion. As a hunter, it does seem to me that the vast majority of arguments used by anti-hunters are emotional rather than being based on scientific or proven fact, but this is only my opinion. I would never suggest, without proof, that it is the only possible or right opinion. This is not to say that all hunters' arguments are always correct either, for example, I believe "Jeenius man" forgot about the passenger pigeon which I believe was hunted to extinction! The buffalo also came close. I hope that we have become wiser since the passenger pigeon, but seeing how we keep forgetting the lessons of previous wars, maybe this is a bit naive? I do believe that, in addition to emotional arguments which are personal and can never be right or wrong, there are many scientifically sound reasons to support hunting, including the fact that natural methods of control of wildlife populations, specifically predation and starvation, have been reduced by human activities. As such, hunting is an important part of management of wildlife populations. Some thoughts to consider before you make up your own mind: . In every area for which I have seen statistics, the number cause for reductions in wildlife populations attributable to human activities is loss of habitat (urban sprawl). . The number two cause is traffic accidents, which not only kill or injure the animal but also people, as well as having an economic cost. . A decision on whether to hunt, eat game or eat meat is personal. I have the greatest respect for anyone who has chosen to be a vegetarian because of his . Convictions, but does this give him the right to impose his views on others? Why hunting should be banned: Hunting has been involved in black markets and such, and animals have also been hunted till extinction, like the passenger pigeon. The common fox is now endangered due to over-hunting. Traps such as the steel jaw trap can so painful that the animal chews its limbs off. In some cases, a predator of the animal comes to attack the animal and the poor creature will have nowhere to run because of the fact that its leg is trapped. Opinion: As a hunter, I think hunting should not be banned because animals such as deer and turkey are overpopulated. Answer: I believe that only those who are not extremists on either side of this argument should be the ones with input. Not naturalists or die-hard hunters. Nevertheless, the future of any animal should not be decided by the sheer pleasure of hunting, or by the overwhelming need to dissent from any opinion. I am a vegetarian myself and am against killing animals, however this matter should only be solved by science alone and what it tells us to do. It is true that overpopulation may begin to ride into our community life, but nature created disease for the purpose of maintaining stasis in the ecosystem. There is no right or wrong to this answer. We must continue to further the sentience of our species by sheer fact and understand that some things can't be helped. Answer: Hunting for sports should be banned. Animal are not toys to play with. They have their young ones to care for like us. God forbid if anyone wants to hunt human beings for sports. I think people should imagine what its like and how painful it would be if we were the ones being hunted down almost every single day. It could lead to extinction. Answer: All have different opinions and they are not going to change anything. Hunting existed before the pilgrims, and it keeps the animal population down so people don't get into car accidents from animals roaming. Do you see how many animals die from cars? Do you ever think about that? Some people are just rude, and do you know how many people kill animals from chopping down trees? Think about the big stuff that's happening now. Answer: Well my first reason is because it leads to extinction. My second reason is because it is not fair. i personally think that hunting should be band because it hurts animal (MORE)
Yes. *Added - This is a subjective question and every individual has their own opinion, so it cannot be properly answered. It is well known that cigarettes lead to many health issues that will shorten your lifespan, although some heavy smokers have far out-lived the average person, including famou…s celebrities. So, this is a very debatable question and cannot be answered here. (MORE)
They don't biodegrade very fast and they may end up in the ocean and trap a marine animal.
Alot of people think that zoos are good because they help repopulate etc/ but did u ever think... that the only reason why we need to repopulate some species, was because of poaching and hunting? If we never had poaching and hunting, most animals are capable out there in the wild... and why… look at zoos when you could go to an afican safari and tour the land? Zoos are good, but they are not 100% educational. Most people use the internet and guides to find out about the species. It is really only for our entertainment.

I agree. 1. You don't have to keep purchasing new clothes 2. Reduces bullying. 3. Gives a sense of belonging 4. Easily identify the student (improved by danger93) 5. Reduces crime 6. Increases focus on work 7. Decreases attention on beauty passion 8. Decreases the talking about other peoples clothes… (especially like where they got the clothes from) (MORE)
yes, pornagraphy should be banned because it is an item that only tears families apart
it is a dress that cover the whole body except face, that is covered by a cloth called neeqab
It depends how you look at it. Zoos could be described as cruel in some ways, but they help us to learn about animals and how to prevent them from becoming extinct, which has to be a good thing. So really, it's a matter of opinion.
burqas look like a long drees that covers your face and has a net near where your eyes are.
Why would you want to put on a burqa? It's not part of Islam.... unless you want to do it for cultural reasons?
no. smoking is a person's choice. if they want to harm there bodies, it should be their own right.
No, people that use them as a shield to justify their actions are whats wrong, theres nothing wrong with videogames.
No, School is very importain! Matter of opinion. Some would say yes. But in my opinion, they are the people who have no life and dont want anything for themselves in life. Now the smarter people would disagree. We want an education do make something with our lives.
Hi, No. We cannot because terror lives within ourselves. A War on Terror is a war against our deepest, darkest fears. It is a war against ourselves.

No why should it be banned at school , it is good for the kids.
Tens, maybe hundreds, of thousands of lucrative jobs in Tobacco Control would be lost. The profits of Tobacco Control's paymasters, Big Pharma, would plunge.
I think that body piercing should not be banned because it's YOUR choice and anyone should have the right to express their selves.
For the most part racism with regards to laws, policies and practices of society have laws specifically designed to combat racism. This is certainly true in the United States. Racism polarizes society and inhibits the contributions of minority groups as they do not have the same access to art, media…, government, and other areas of society. For the most part the items just described have been addressed and racism in my opinion is not a major stumbling block in Western nations such as the USA. The fact that over the past two Presidential administrations the USA has had Afro-American Secretaries of State, an Afro-American President, an Afro-American Attorney General says allot. We can recall that former US President Bush had Colin Powell as Secretary of State, Condelisa Rice as Secretary of State, are situations that are not found in even progressive Western nations. I'll give one example of what I mean. To my knowledge no Irish background person has ever been the PM of the UK. If I am wrong please correct me. (MORE)
Opinion NO! Answer In the US, even offensive music is protected by First Amendment to our Bill of Rights. Objectionable material can be limited to where it is not a nuisance to the public, by the Declaration of Independence that says "...unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty an…d the pursuit of Happiness". The pursuit of happiness has been interpreted to mean that one person can't impinge on others basic comfort. In other words, you have the right to say what you like but you can't force others to listen to it. You can restrict it where the general population of that place would not like it, such as schools, hospitals, shopping mall, trains, public streets, etc. See the link below to read the original document.

They should be banned, because they are showing our young children bad things, that they should not be learning, right now, at this point.
They should not be banned. There are those in society who think their social responsibilities extend to telling other people what to do and trying to command conformity to their way of thinking. Such people should be surrounded by chip gluttons eating with their mouths open.
Racism is one of the most destructive human elements that has existed for thousands of years. It has caused the deaths of millions of people and sadly, while racism should be banned, so far the world has been unable to do it.
In Islam Burqa/BURKA has lots of respect. To cover your privte part of the bodies.

YEs i am a thief IMPROVED ANSWER: In my opinion, i think that cameras should be banned from school. Here the reason why. 1.) Student might take "bad" picture of other student when they did not notice and pose it online which could embarrassed that student. And when that student is embarrassed sh…e/he can think of suiciding! 2.)Student can take inappropriate picture of other student when they are not realizing. 3.) This is a question for YOU!! Why would you need cameras to school any way?? Because this happened before! the school do not even allows you to take a picture with your phone! and you should be glad they let you use your phone during lunch. I don't know if your school allows you to use your phone during lunch but my school does. So PEACE!! (MORE)
They shouldn't be banned from beaches. They should be allowed to go as long as they are on a leash :)
No. All knowledge is good. It is what we DO with it that makes the difference...
no there should not be a law on banning sharks......they were made for a purpose in this world
I do not believe BASE jumping should be banned in the same way that swimming should not be banned. Yes there are accidents and deaths, however this is the case for most sports. Statistically speaking horse riding is more dangerous than BASE in proportion to numbers participating.
Yes; gangs do not contribute to education (except about gangs of course). School is a place for people to gain the knowledge needed to build the rest of their lives on. Young people are not aware of how little time they have to learn what they will need to know both in and out of school. Unless a ga…ng really has something special to contribute to that process, they can't have a part in school. Schools, as a public trust, must be reserved for things that contribute to the students' future. (MORE)
that question is more opinion. there isn't an answer. some people think it should, others think it shouldn't be banned.
Of course not. A Cannibal Corpse fan is much less likely to try emulating the things the lyrics describe than a Tupac fan is to try emulating what his lyrics describe.
yes mining should be banned it is a dangerous occupation and many of the gases are explosive it has a lack of safety regulations.
Smoking has always been banned in theatres as a fire hazard, or at least discouraged. I know what you are getting at. The day of tobacco as a somewhat cool practice are long gone. I cannot see why they will sneak tobacco use into a film where it plays no real role in the plot- for example, Amelia. M…r. Putnam, her husband is frequently seen smoking frantically- he comes across ( I have not seen the entire film but coming attractions) as a sort of Phil Spector type character. We need a sequel- Veronica! the truth About Ronnie and the Ronettes- or better yet, Veronica- Unveiled! (MORE)
Mining should perhaps be banned in highly populated urban areas, and highly valued, sensitive places like nature preserves. A general ban on mining would quickly lead to the end of life as we know it, as we depend on the products of mining and use many of them daily.
Purely a matter of opinion. Though if this is done it could lead to other things being banned such as 'hoodies', ski masks, or any other item that covers the face. Another erosion of personal freedom perhaps.
no it is tradition ===== No. It is personal responsibility. The people who do wrong should be punished, not everyone. Taking fireworks away from everyone by baning them is punishing everyone because a very few are irresponsible.
it depends on the school but i dont think they should be banned because it gives you something to do whenever your bored:)
no they shouldn't be banned as they bring enjoyment, are good collectibles, and have a different adventure every time you read one!

Woman are not paying any price of male lust or what so ever by wearing the hijab and burka. Allah gave men a portion of His strength and He gave women a portion of His beauty. Woman by hiding her body protects herself. The gown is her shield, her armour. Additional view In addition to the abov…e, that I fully agree upon, one should know that wearing Hijab is part of God command to wear cloth that covers the whole body, including hair, head, and neck, except the face and the hands. That cloth . should not be so tight to describe the woman body or sexy parts, and . should not be so transparent to make the under cloth visible. In addition to the fact that wearing hijab is an Islamic requirement and is a command by God and Prophet Mohamed (peace upon him), the following are some reasons and benefits that a Muslim woman gain by wearing hijab and Islamic clothing: . Men would not judge the woman by her appearance but would tend to evaluate her by her personality, character, and morals. . Wearing a hijab helps in preventing indecent acts or thoughts. . When wearing a hijab, one feels more modest, having more self respect and confidence. . People actually evaluate the one wearing the Hijab based on who she is and not on how beautiful she is. . by wearing hijab, one doesn't worry about her my hair if not beautiful or needs more cosmetics. . Hijab provides Muslims with an identity. They don't have to tell people they are Muslims. It shows. . By wearing hijab, the woman is concealing her sexuality but allowing her femininity to shine. On top of the above, wearing hijab is something that is pleasing to Allah and in return one earns blessings from wearing it. It remains to mention that wearing burka or veil that covers fully face and hands is not a religion requirement. It is a matter of local traditions and practices that are neither forbidden nor required per Islam religion. (MORE)
