(Vo). On the flip side, many parents find these rape stories have the potential to spark post traumatic stress among those who have been through such instances, include no educational purposes, and are too lewd and detailed for teenagers. Along with rape, Charlie also has to confront the treacherous waters of suicide. In many cases, Charlie found himself depressed, and attempted suicide; he did not succeed. But the mere thought of suicide disturbs almost everyone, especially parents.
If teachers were, perhaps, armed in these shootings, could the shooters have been stopped, before they even shot their guns. Teachers in schools across America would be better fitted to take down a shooter in action, if these said teachers are armed. Now, let’s dive into three different reasons and sources on why these teachers should, and need to be armed. The average police response time in the United States is ten minutes, according to www.creditdonkey.com. To people and civilians in distress during a school shooting, these ten minutes could mean more lives taken.
Laurie rebelled by writing the truth about the in the newspaper the grapevine and a real student hung up posters that said negative things about the wave. Many people felt the same about the wave and how it was mainly negative. The Last similarity is how both teachers decided to close down the experiment. Both of teachers bluff about how the Wave is all over American high schools all over the country. They also say that the leader will unveil himself at the rally.
Mauricio and other volunteers deal with people who have been wounded or gun-shot, or who have been fighting. They risk their life to attend to victims of gunshot wounds or any medical emergency. In El Salvador gang violence is a major problem and many parents are not living a comfortable life because it happens as a daily basis they hear gunshots. As every day passes, more young people are turning to gangs to solve problems in their lives; they are influence negatively by gangs and are led to live a life of crime. When teenagers join gangs, they drop social activities with family, friends and school.
Since 2012 there have been around 170 school shootings around the US. December 14 was the massacre of 20 children ranging from the age of 7-8. Many of the teachers on campus did not have a weapon with them and could not defend the school. If these teachers had a gun on them they could have prevented less casualties. Very few people in a school will react to a school shooting because they are either not prepared or do not have the right mind to do anything about it.
Youths who should be in school are handed a gun and taken advantage of. A military commander from Chad boasts, “if you tell them to kill, they kill.” Most people believe that once a child has been forced into war and that there is no way to correct their negative views. Some believe that these damaged, scarred, scared children don’t deserve help or sympathy. Furthermore, many believe that they are evil criminals who deserve to stay in a jail cell, but these children can be reformed and overcome their struggles, even after manipulation and loss. Once a child becomes a soldier, people believe that there is no way to turn their violent views around.
People also believe that any kind of automatic or semi-automatic gun should be banned in the United States. According to the New York Times, 486 people have died from mass shootings since 2000. Most of time, the shooting ends before police can even make it to the scene. The amount of shootings have increased in the past seven years. The United States has been trying to find ways to prevent school shootings since the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary.
There were many occurrences of this same fear that Sandra felt. One example would be the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and how the nation was shocked and terrified that one person could kill the most powerful man in the world so easily. This fear is also portrayed in the political riots such as the many riots that occurred to oppose the Vietnam draft and war. American men were being drafted and did not want to be fighting a war that was not necessary. Many of these riots ended with the police coming in and fighting the protesters until they left.
Gun Control and Societal Factors Surrounding it Gun control is a heated topic with many opinions only further complicating the matter. But one thing is clear: people are dying and nothing notable is being done about it. Schools appear to be at an elevated risk for gun violence, as troubled students have access to weapons of military caliber. If nothing gets done, our nation’s tragic history will only escalate; if something is done, however, many will insist that regulations “infringe” their rights to bear arms. Gun control is riddled with controversy and varying opinions only complicate the matter, but there is a larger picture being ignore.
Once at the military barracks he is still determined to not lose himself and his morals and therefore is often getting himself and the other young soldiers into trouble, “Kammel wants you to run round the shithouse” (40). Kotze slowly but surely breaks Campbell down until his only instinct is to survive and get out of this war alive, “within myself I’ve got principles… but like here we’ve just got to survive” (61). Campbell by the end of the play is so psychologically damaged by the war and the military training that eventually he betrays himself and shoots the already injured Black
