Today, our expert, Marie, spoke about gun regulations in the US.
Then, thanks to the video, you focused on Michigan.
Here is what you said about it:
Michigan is a shall-issue state because :
-the man doesn't need a good cause to bear a gun.
-he has to take a test (background check). It consists in filling in/completing a form : he mentions his race and that he's not mentally defective.
Gun regulations aren't efficient because :
-nobody can prove he says the truth.
-it's too easy to get a gun: he gets a free gun after he opened an account.
-there is no police control : a bank clerk gives the gun.

You will have to write a letter for your final task, so let's see some examples!
Hw: Pour mardi 17
- Entraînement à l'épreuve de compréhension orale.
- Intermediate task: You are part of an association against gun bearing; write a letter to the bank to tell about your reaction after you saw the video (150 words - write very two lines)

After a short recap, you focused on 'Right-to-carry laws' concerning gun bearing in the US.
Here is what you said:Right-to-carry Laws: regulations / restrictionsShall issue states: You can bear a concealed / hidden gun with a license but there is no control. You must pay a fee / must take a test / prove you're not a criminal (Background check).May issue states: You must have a good cause to bear a hidden gun.No issue states: Americans are forbidden to / are prohibited to / are not allowed to bear weapons.
Written by Lucas.
Then, you watched a video document to identify:
- The name of the State?
- Shall-issue / May-issue / No-issue state?
- Why? Pick out elements to justify your answer.

First of all, I presented the different exams for the bac (oral and written). Here is the slideshow to recap what we've said:
Then, you started studying the first document of the unit:
Here is what you said:
This black and white cartoon depicts / shows a teacher asking children what the letters USA stand for / mean.
The expected answer is United States of America, but a child says unlimited semi-automatics due to the fact that in the USA, we can bear / carry a weapon legally.
However, in some states, we need a license.
Guns are part of the American history and culture because the 2nd Amendment allows gun bearing.
