This adds more and more to my reasoning of just banning guns from unworthy people completely. Since the second amendment is not applied daily to all citizens, this indicates it is fully flawed and shouldn’t have to take people dying in order to change our unfair system. Most of the time -if not always- your skin tone defines how situations are handled for you. In certain cases of mercy, colored people don’t get into as much trouble but aside from that, people with a lighter color of skin are found hardly ever guilty of crimes they wrongfully
In no way are the rules set by our government vague enough to let Hosni Nassef’s actions be considered to be okay and permissible. There would be no argument at all had the federal government been allowed to protect its people as it sees fit. The Gun-Free School Zone Act of 1990, which made it illegal for an individual to possess a firearm in a school zone, was established by our government to protect children from gun violence, which made perfect sense.
As stated by Robert Birnbaum “guns on campus is a wicked problem that can never be satisfactorily resolved.” (Birnbaum 11) I don’t see a solution for this problem anytime soon because people are trying to solve this issues with stricter policies and more laws but this will has not worked so far so it is time to try something new, allowing students to conceal carry is that something new. How many more lives and school shootings is it going to take to convince the public that although there is some risk in allowing guns into our schools we would benefit more than we
Mental illness is not something that the shooter should be blaming there actions of shooting the school on. The shooter is just trying to use mental illness to make him not get in too much of trouble for the actions that the shooter did with the school shootings. Shooting at students and staff and using mental illness as another reason you did it is not a good reason. Mental illness is a disease and not a factor you should be blaming a school shooting on.
have the right to protect yourself. Face to face with a madman and his gun, the last thing we want is to be left defenseless. This is why I am a student for concealed firearms on campus. I believe the most efficient defense against an out-of-control triggerman on campus is other armed students and professors who can shoot back and stop the carnage. School campuses are not places common people feel concerned enough to protect themselves with a gun.
The shooting in Parkland, Florida has been the talk in the news, newspaper and in schools. The shooter was mentally ill, and he bought a rifle legally, which should not have been allowed to happen. Many people such as the FBI, the president, the parents of Cruz, and Cruz himself are in the wrong for what happened. There needs to be more precautions so things like the school shootings and massacres can come to an end. Things such as gun laws, more FBI involvement and more security at schools can keep the schools safe because the government can keep stopping bad people from getting through all the “loop holes” and causing harm to innocent people.
What should schools do? Intruder drills and guidance counselors are definitely ways to prevent a student shooter, but what about outsiders? Gun control could help prevent both a student going into a school and shooting and an outsider doing the same thing, but it would be less effective on student shooters, given the fact that many student shooters did not buy their own guns. But an unaffiliated shooter would probably have to buy their own guns, as if a shooter has no relation with the school they would probably be living on their own as an adult. They probably wouldn’t have their parents firearms with them.
Nearly all states ban the use and possession of guns in a school or near school areas because it is dangerous for the students. The law on open carry gun in New York is very vague because Open carry in public is not legal in most areas in New York however, no law specifically bans open carry, a license to carry is issued to carry concealed as per penal law 400 which means pistol permit holders must carry concealed. Also, open carry policy contains many exceptions which include a prohibition on guns in some places that
Harris also says, “the liberal commentariat seems to have no awareness of what “sell-trained” signifies.” He goes on to say that it includes and understanding of what to do and what not to do when the danger of shooting innocent bystanders exists. We should be aware also that only special permit holder can legally carry a weapon in public currently and all the people who can have true reason and/or have taken an appropriate class in order to do so. In Source C it is stated “School Safety: A Shared Responsibility” I couldn’t agree with this statement more.
Teachers and people who do not work at school will still carry a treat. I think in the discussion about weapons at schools the decision should be same for both sides. It means both teachers and students should be allowed or not allowed to carry guns. This decision will cause a chaos and violence at first sight.
Permitting guns on campus will jeopardize the safety of the people on campus instead of secure it. College is a new environment for students, and people do not know everyone personally. People could be walking around campus not knowing whether the person behind them can have a gun pointed right at them. In the classrooms, the students sit next to each other how can one know the person next to them isn't mentally stable and carrying a gun? For instance, one time in class this boy named James became furious when he was given his test back, and he left the classroom immediately after seeing his test.
The assault rifle ban has critics that believe by banning the weapons, it would make the country a unsafe place. Opponents claim that the Second Amendment reserves the right to own any type of weapon for self-defense. Noel Marino, the Editor and Author of Guns and Crimes, stated "Gun control supporters had argued that the Founding Fathers could not have in envisioned semi-automatic firearms, and thus the Second Amendment only protected firearms such as muskets. However, the court dismissed that notion saying " some have made the argument, bordering on the frivolous, protected by the Second Amendment. We do not interpret constitutional rights that way.
The USA needs tighter gun laws The United States just last year had 385 mass shooting (that’s defined as a shooting where 4 or more are injured or killed), that’s more mass shootings then there are days in a year. Still, Americans cling on to the idea that an ordinary citizen needs access to a military grade assault rifle, whose sole purpose is to be efficient at killing people. What’s even more frightening is the fact that America’s President, newly into office has made his stance on gun control quite clear by saying “I am against gun control”. In an age of mass education and with the ability to instantaneously communicate, it is time that America, once the centre of change, moves with the times and begins changing laws that are based around
