However, for some people, the sight of an open gun will not make them feel safe and uneasy. By allowing open carry, you are ensuring trust amongst your peers and those around you to protect you with your life; however, relying on a stranger to protect your life is a gamble and one that several people are not will to make. Finally, open carry on school campuses will lead to more violence. As reported in various school shootings, such the shooting in Albemarle High School in North Carolina on September 2014, some shootings were caused by arguments between two students. The incident, and several others public shooting incidents, would have been avoided if the shooter did not have a weapon on his person and if the country had more strict gun control laws.
That is frightening considering the fact that one student was able to bring multiple weapons on campus even though they were prohibited, and inflict harm upon other students that couldn't even defend themselves. That's something that will not only haunt the University, but teachers, faculty, and fellow classmates of those students forever. Colleges must understand that at any moment an unstable student, or faculty member could cause complete and utter chaos on their campus, and leave it regarded to as a dangerous environment, which could potentially keep the school from receiving funding, or even keep students from applying. Considering all of the negative things that come with not having weapons on campus, they could almost be seen as a necessity for college students. When people hear the word “weapon” the first that that typically crosses their mind is guns.
amendment is also not granted by the US constitution. To many people, the second amendment is not clear. It confuses a lot in that some people argue that those that have the rights to possess firearms for self-defense are only the military. It does not specify that the citizens have the right to own firearms for self-defense and personal use. A study conducted by a Yale Professor showed that the “shall-issue” laws resulted in a rise in the rates of the violence, crimes, rape, and robbery hence with this it could be concluded that ownership of firearms by citizens lead to an increase in the crime rates.
In past circumstances when guns were banned, criminals were the kind of people that the government wanted to make sure did not have guns. In reality, they were always the ones who still had the guns (Lott). People can say that gun crime is a serious firearm problem, but guns are not always the exact cause of the crime. Even if the government tries to deny groups access to guns, they could still find their way around the law and gain access to one
Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number.
If responsible students have the right to defend themselves at home and out in public, then why shouldn't they be allowed to fight for themselves while furthering their education at college? College students should be authorized to bear guns on campus, if they are legally licensed to carry concealed weapons. In today's world you don't know what will happen to you each day and it is the sad truth that students have to think: what if someone tried to rob me; what if I am a target for carjacking; what if someone open fired on everyone? Students start to question how safe is their campus really is. One minute you could be in class taking a test and then hear gunshots down the hall or you could be leaving the campus late at night and be robbed while getting in your car.
In the essay written by the Students For Concealed Carry, Why Our Campuses Are Not Safe without Concealed Handguns, they stated, “The SFGS essay points to two attacks on facility where the shooters knew that law enforcement officers would be present, as evidence that suicidal gunmen are not deterred by armed resistance. Those particular shooters may not have been deterred, but they also didn’t cause nearly as great a loss of life as is often caused by shooters in “gun- free zones”. (17) Most shootings that take place at schools are by suicidal gunmen who plan to do as much harm as possible to others. If the gunmen knew there were likely people who were armed they may not target that area and if they do, they will more than likely not kill as many as they
The best protection would be not to allow any weapons on a college campus. This would keep everyone safe and protected. In conclusion, guns should not be permitted on a college campus. There is too many incidents that could happen either by accident or on purpose with the presence of a gun.
The various challenges that are inherent in campus life include issues of alcohol and drug abuse, social obstacles, and stress. Adding guns to such an environment is the perfect ingredient for an explosive environment that may increase the safety risk to students and everyone else within the campus. There will be an increase in accidental shootings while the mere presence of firearms in the environment might lead to conflicts among students that may escalate to levels where people are killed (Skorton, & Altshuler, 2013). Even if it is the last option, guns should never be placed at the hands of emotionally volatile young persons such as college students. Doing so will only increase the probability of lethal and near-lethal outcomes from the behaviors that manifests themselves in the context of such
I mentioned a few reasons on how the use of force has made police officers look bad. It is making officers look bad because recordings from the public only show the beatings and shootings, but do not capture the beginning of the confrontation. It will be bet for officers and the goof being of the community I officers use body-worn cameras because it will capture every second that happens between confrontations. The use of force is granted to the officers if they feel like the suspect is dangerous or is not complying with the officer. It was a right given to them by a case back in 1985, in which a person was killed by deadly force.
Another heroic civilian was George Walters, a dockyard worker who used a rolling crane positioned alongside the battleship USS Pennsylvania. When the yard was fired at during the beginning of the raid, he valiantly moved his crane back and forth on its track, effectively blocking Pennsylvania from low flying dive-bombers and fighters. Gunners on the Pennsylvania considered the dockworker a nuisance at first, but they soon realized that his 50-foot-high cab gave him an excellent view of incoming zeros. Using the movements of the crane arm, they were able to return fire against the enemy. Walters continued his maneuvers until a Japanese bomb exploded on the dock and sent him to the hospital with a concussion.

Steven Furtick is not justified in building his multi-million-dollar home. His actions alone speak volumes about his inner guilt. Not to mention the many nondisclosure agreements he had members and volunteers sign, using the church to for his own personal gain and not living above reproach. Steven’s response to the reporters questioning him about this home was despicable.
Reports the Arizona Republic, the son of GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons is charged for a stint in prison for a July domestic assault on his girlfriend. Robert Sean Parsons was 44 years old when he was sentenced on Friday to 4 months in prison and 3 years' ordeal for the incident at his Scottsdale home, though complying with terms of his ordeal could decrease prison time by 3 months, in which he confessed to grasping the woman's throat, suffocating her, and punching her after she faced him about texts from other women.

This is the beginning of my essay. “Taken together, these have brought me great joy, through with that joy, I have also found the deepest sorrow”(Kyle pg.1). Taya was born in Portland, Oregon, in 1974. She spent her childhood in small-town, suburbs. She was trained to be a lawyer.
