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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
During the National Rifle Association (NRA) Press Conference on December 21, 2012, Executive Vice President Wayne Lapierre, speaks out against these activists and exclaims “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” After hearing about the tragedy, Lapierre wants every school in America to deploy a protection program to keep its students safe. The NRA faces criticism from all over America, about how they are to blame, but Lapierre puts the blame on video games and violent movies such as, “American Psycho” and “Natural Born Killers.” He questions, “Isn’t fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?” Lapierre is willing to give training to both students and teachers on the proper precautions
Since 2013 there have been 203 school shootings in America(“203 school shootings in America since 2013”). The school shootings were labeled as accidents, suicide attempts, and mass shootings. These shootings take place all over the United States in schools with students as young as preschoolers, to as old as college students. In 2013 Arkansas joined a fleet of six states that are currently allowing armed guards in their schools. Those six states are Ohio, Colorado, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Washington(Flock).
In the generation in which we live, it is sad to say that shootings happen way too often on public grounds, such as schools, malls, or movie theaters. Because of the growing number of massacres in the US, the issue here is whether or not teachers carrying firearms could possibly prevent school shootings. The problem occurs when studies are done and the facts are given about how one’s brain tends to react during such incidents. The argument in this article is trying to decide whether or not teachers should go into training in order to carry firearms on school property, in the case a shooting should occur.
Many schools are considering applying a controversial initiative which is arming teachers because of the fact that school shootings have been happening more often since Columbine. According to the Washington Post ,“...mass public shootings are on the rise, and schools are now viewed as vulnerable targets. One of the deadliest in history claimed 28 lives, including 20 children, after Adam Lanza opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in 2012” (Wang). This shooting was the first mass shooting to really make parents consider their children's safety in public schools and have left some wondering what actions can be taken to prevent these shooting Yanan Wang shows the worry in her recent Washington Post article saying, “These
