Transcript: Evidence: "Second, Holder's critics go to great lengths to avoid noticing the obvious: the Mexican trafficking problem itself is largely the product of our grievously weak federal gun laws." Analysis: We already have a big problem with Mexican trafficking which is why we cannot be clear and articulate about the gun laws. In order to fix this problem, all that needs to happen is to just realize this issue and pay more attention to controlling these gun laws rather than forgetting about it. The fundamental reason that there is minimal attention being paid to this bill is for the sole fact that there are other problems going on and not being prioritized. Without these gun transfer laws, the other problems will be prioritized and there will be massive structural issues with implementing the new bill. What is our bill? H.R. 368 puts restrictions on gun transfer. Those who are not licensed to import, manufacture, or deal firearms are given special cases when such importing and dealing is not prohibited. This bill helps to ensure that unlicensed individuals are not illegally transferring firearms between other individuals, thus forming necessary safety precautions for the transfer laws in this nation. Our Opinion Evidence: "With so many weapons and so few controls on who can receive the weapons, there is simply no realistic way to keep these guns from falling into the hands of violent criminals and disturbed people." Analysis: The new bill will prevent what people would fear the worst- guns getting into the wrong hands. We can't prevent everyone from doing illegal acts with their guns, but the next best option is prohibiting those who aren't licensed from ever having the temptation to shoot. Bibliography We believe the proposed laws are necessary for our government to ensure we are able to maintain a safe society. We need to reduce the number of shootings every year in the U.S. and this bill will move us closer to this goal. Evidence: Recently the Tennessee Legislature is introducing many pro gun bills meant to enhance the second amendment, loosening carry laws. Analysis: With these gun laws in place it would be more likely for guns to fall into the wrong hands. Our bill would counteract the negative effects of pro guns laws, and overall make our country safer. How does the bill fall with our republican government? Support The bill represents our republican government because Congress is voting on this bill and Congress represents the general opinions of the public. Also, this bill protects the safety of the public, which is important to keep our society safe. Support How is this bill a part of federalism? Support This bill is being proposed at a federal level instead of a state level because it is a fairly controversial topic and we want it to be a nationwide law. We believe if the law was proposed on a state level some of the southern states would not pass it but it's important for the safety of the nation to have every state abide by this law. How will this bill go through checks and balances? This bill started in the House of Representatives. It will soon get voted on by this house and then undergo the same process of debating and voting in the Senate house. Then it is sent to the Executive Branch where the president will sign off this law. He can veto this law if he doesn't think this law is applicable, so it doesn't become a law. However, the legislative branch can overturn the veto if both houses in Congress vote to approve the bill by a two-thirds majority or they can make an amendment to the bill and try to pass it again. 1.

Simplify - By Bill Hybels

Transcript: How do we as Christians act when we're closest to God? How do we feel when we pray our best prayers? How do we act when we are furthest from God? - What types of things fill your bucket? -Find out what type of things replenish your soul. -First it is important to understand why you're so depleted in the first place. -Do not think that replenishment activities are a form of selfish entertainment, but it is vital to the end goal of living your life at its best. -When you are depleted don't look at anyone to take you out, but it's your responsibility to fill your bucket. -Exercise increases your energy, and your overall quality of life. -Also eating nutrition packed foods increases energy. -Sleep is a big part of keeping your energy bucket full, you must get enough sleep to have enough energy. -It is important to keep your energy bucket full. INTRO - Bogdan Drawing your personal bucket Put a line to mark where you feel your energy level is right now "why do i let myself get this depleted?" Ask God to give you insight on why you are running on empty. - Saying NO • Hard to say no to people at church. • Important to not let yourself get spent so you don't get depleted and bottom out. • Depletion can be costly • It doesn't just drain you, it affects the people around you. Excercise - Eddie • High schoolers/College students: Prayerfully evaluate what truly matters • What are your needs, versus your wants? - "God, in His love for you, would love for your job to be a bucket-filler and not a bucket-drainer. - Ever become so depleted to the point where you can't even recognize what you've become? - The price of depletion • Just like Marta interrupted Jesus and Mary's fellowship to vent, we vent about things when we're depleted. • Overwhelmed, over-scheduled, exhausted - Vow to not allow yourself to get this depleted. Cost is too high. Some may ask themselves, how can I have fun when we as a people are far from Christ? That thinking allows you to get depleted Finding a type of recreation that gives you life, that fills your bucket! Recreation means - to re-create energy for you as a person = More to offer for those around you Ex. - Reading, cooking, golfing, camping, etc. Chapter 1 From Exhausted to Energized Simplify - By Bill Hybels Family - Ruben Begin with Full bucket - Bogdan Connecting with God - Andrei Replenishing your energy reserves + patching holes - Eddie Asking God to do it and He will Do the things that you know will fill your bucket Some of the things that he recommends us doing in this chapter: Spending 15 min a day with God in a quiet place by reading scripture, praying and listening to the holy spirit Spend time with family Engage in satisfying work Participate in recreation • Walking with God • Chair Time • Personal Image = Eternal Truth? "Simplified living is about more than doing less" “It’s being who God called us to be, with a wholehearted, single-minded focus. It’s walking away from innumerable lesser opportunities in favor of the few to which we’ve been called and for which we’ve been created. It’s a lifestyle that allows us, when our heads hit the pillow at night, to reflect with gratitude that our day was well invested and the varied responsibilities of our lives are in order” Wake up Call - Razvan Group 1 Razvan Rosu Bogdan Gradianu Andrei Mihoc Ruben Ghica Eddie Oprinca Q & A • "If you choose to live with more energy reserves in your life, you will without a doubt disappoint some people" • No one else can keep your tank full but YOU. Up to you to protect your energy reserves and priorities. • We should stay as connected as we can to our family's, and be as involved with them as we can. • We should make time to stay with our family's, if your too busy for family than your too busy. Five key Replacements Action Step 1 - Razvan As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Action Step 2 - Andrei The most important step is to move from exhausted to energized living life like this has consequences. Not living the way God designed you to live Learn how to fill your bucket and keep it filled When its full, you will more efficient Important message in Chapter 1 Satisfying work - Razvan Tell her to Help me - Andrei Recreation - Bogdan - Ecclesiastes 5:18 • "Here is what I have seen to be good and fitting: to eat, to drink and enjoy oneself in all one's labor in which he toils under the sun during the few years of his life which God has given him; for this is
