Sometimes people carrying a gun or handling a gun might not have enough knowledge to use the firearm or even know how to carry it. Also some people might have stuff running through their head while holding the weapon which makes it very dangerous for the people around that very. Most of school shootings,the shooter has had a rough life or has been depressed so this will make them have different thoughts which can turn into harming other people. Also, if there were stricter laws on the people using the gun and not just the gun then most of the school shootings that have happened in the passed years would have never happened since the people should not have the gun because they are not stable enough. Secondly,most people even if they can not get a gun they will easily just steal it.
The Parkland shooting in Florida. A tragic school shooting in mid-February of 2018 has the whole country spinning circles around more gun control. My opinion and stand point on this subject is to open readers eyes to the fact that it simply will not work. The students pushing for more gun control are starting marches that have affected the schools around the nation in a walkout in March of 2018. This walkout was for the awareness that students don’t feel safe in their hometown schools and also bringing awareness for the seventeen students who lost their lives during the shooting.
Gun laws are the cause to a lot of the violent crimes in the united states and laws need to be changed so people can’t purchase guns as easily that way we aren’t in as much trouble. Most people that commit violent gun crimes are mentally ill, for example the last school shooting that occured on february 14 2018 at Marjory stoneman douglas high school in parkland florida, the gunman Nikolas Cruz was mentally ill. He walked into the school with his guns and shot and killed 17 students and a teacher.He had issues with learning, and controlling his emotions and stuff. (source) Someone that is mentally ill or has certain problems like Nikolas Cruz shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun in the first place. This is where it is believed gun control would have a good effect in the long run, if its harder to get a gun then these guns will not make it in the hands of a school shooter.
The people who want to go out and hurt someone obviously have it in their head to start off with, so they will find a way to get a gun or hurt someone in a different way, taking away gun rights isn’t going to stop people from killing if that’s what their initial intentions are in the first place. Adding to it, many Americans believe that that taking away gun rights is unconstitutional. “This is a freedom that Americans have acquired over time, but by banning guns it takes that freedom away, and thus going against the declaration of independence because it is a law that is restricting the people from their rights to own a weapon for protection.” (Debate). The biggest upset about the taking away guns from our people is the fact that it goes against everything America has always bragged out being, the land of the free. Making these laws don’t just take away peoples weapons it takes away their sense of home, safety, and freedom.
Although arming teachers would allow for an immediate response against a terrorist, “Armed staff on-site could respond to a shooter before police”, according to Matthew Santoni, it would be ineffective because of the additional background checks teachers will have to go through to be assigned a gun, and will put the kids at risk of being shot. There are more solutions to this dilemma, and gun control is one of them. By securing the weapons and regulating them, people are less likely to kill someone with said weapon. Australia, for example, took the right steps into regulating gun violence by purchasing weapons from people after a deadly shooting. The United States can do the same thing and protect the lives of
If you do the math, only 6.9% of teachers would want to carry a gun. Some students would be somewhat scared of teachers that carried guns, which stops relationships from growing and turns schools into not so fun places. Ms. Woodmansee said “If I carry a gun in my classroom, I can no longer do my job appropriately, which involves building relationships.” Teachers need to be able to calmly do their job and shouldn’t be anxious or nervous while doing so. Ms. Woodmansee also said “If I 'm carrying a gun, I must now view everyone as a threat instead of building bridges with them. After all, I 'm a tiny woman, and I expect about half of my students to be capable of wrestling my gun away from me.” The guns teachers carry could be taken and turned against them, or used on the wrong people.
Many people think that these games will not have a major impact in a student or teens life that teens will be more prepared to face the real world an all its dangerous. But I say that yes these games might teach kids that the real world isn 't always that safe but I believe that these games show kids to be violent and reckless. To conclude this is why many parents and government officials believe that kids should not be allowed to play violent role playing games.By not letting kids play these games we can prevent more horrible and tragic shooting involving
Most Importantly, I believe deeply in my heart that we should allow some teachers to carry guns. They will have to attend gun firing drills and how to handle them and etc, but most importantly they will need to pass a mental and criminal background checks. Even the tiniest red flag that pops up then they wouldnt be given the option of carry a gun on campus. Nobody would last a
School safety is an ongoing debate in America and the question of, are schools safe, will never go away but, what could be done to make it a less prominent or less talked about question. Some say that we need more law enforcement in schools, some say we should get rid of guns, and others may say that we should simply make it harder for the wrong kind of people to get guns. I feel that we should have to take a class (much like a hunting or drivers license) and a test annually in order to own guns. Many people would like a world where guns are completely banned or outlawed. While this may work on paper, you can’t deny that if we were to outlaw guns then only criminals would have them thus leaving the non-criminals defenseless.
Guns Guns Should Not Be Allow In College Campus Guns are particularly dangerous. They are more harmful and deadly than most other methods people try. We should not allow gun on campus because it can lead to reckless behavior, might cause lower enrollment due to safety expectations, it might lead to useless/accidental death, likely to increase in both homicide and suicides, and likely to increase the death of campus police officer. Allowing gun on campus can lead to reckless behavior. For example, when a student get into an argument that lead to a fistfight one of them could bring out a gun to shoot and says it is self-defense that was not.
