So therefor people believe banning guns will solve the problem of school shootings. Yes the shootings are awful but there are many other solution to stop school shootings like having more officers and locking the doors 24/7. The United states has had a lot of homi cides and yes many of them have been done with guns but that doesn't mean all of them were done with guns. There was around 11,500 homicides done with guns in 2006 and the rates are all over the place nowadays but out of the millions of people in this world that is not that many of people yes it's really say that they had to die like that but there is really not that many people. Most people are either all about banning guns or dont want them banned but everyone has their own opinions and can express them in their own
“The combination of alcohol, drugs and guns is a dangerous mix that could lead to additional and more lethal, violence on campus” (Students For Gun-Free Schools, 635). The other issue people are concerned about is how do we know who is capable of killing someone. We all wouldn’t want people who suffer from a mental illness to carry weapons yet alone encouraging them to doing so for any cause. On April 16, 2007 a Virginia Tech student murdered 32 and wounded 17 people on campus. The student had psychological and behavior problems but he was still able to buy a gun (Skorton and Altschuler, 628).
Being protected is the most comfortable feeling there is. Teachers have serveral reasons why they should carry handguns. The three reasons are listed as followed: to proctect themselves from mentally deranged students, to cease life threating situations towards students. In the past year of 2009, there were many classrooms incidents that occured in the United States. Richard T. Autoun the professor of Bingham University was stabbed to death by the forty-three year old student Abdulsalam S. al-Zahrani.
School campuses are not places common people feel concerned enough to protect themselves with a gun. Learning that over 20 of the deadliest mass shootings in the United States have taken place on school grounds, has changed my mind. In Texas alone, eight school shootings have occurred just after 1990. On August 1st, 1966 Charles Whitman opened fire on 43 people while standing on top of the UT
What about the Texas Church Shooting, where the shooter, was Devin Patrick Kelly, a former Air Force member. His background check was “clean” even when he assaulted his wife, broke his stepson’s skull, and had been discharged from the Air Force for bad conduct. This might not convince everybody about the ease to purchase a gun, because this intro has only talked about people being killed by them, so it must be hard to get guns, because these shootings don’t happen everyday. All of these shooters that caused these shootings, did not have a license or permit when purchasing these firearms. That’s how Stephen Paddock was found with 23 firearms inside of his hotel room, where the shooting came from.
He supports his argument by saying that making strict gun laws will lead to a time where only the terrorists and bad guys will have guns, leaving the other citizens unarmed and unprotected. He believes that the people are responsible for killings with firearms and not the guns. The first and second debaters in text 2 share the same attitude towards gun laws as Donald Trump. The text compares guns with cars. It talks about that even though cars kill many people every year they are not banned, so why should guns be banned.
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. The shooter used a rifle called an AR-15, which many people think it means “assault rifle” but it really means Armalite Rifle design 15. Gun laws should be stricter on the mentally ill aspect. Nicolas Cruz, the Parkland shooter was mentally ill and bought a rifle legally which should not have been allowed to happen. Now making gun laws stricter will not mean the death rate or shootings will decrease right away because mainly the only people that go to a gun store to buy a gun are law abiding gun owners.
U.S President Donald trump received $30 million dollars this year from the National Rifle Association (NRA). In the articles, “Famous Speeches: We call BS, Emma Gonzalez 's speech to gun advocates,” and “Issue overview: Guns in America they talk about how there have been so many school shooting across the world due to random people being able to buy any gun they want without having a license or just being under age. President Donald Trump has apologized so many times for the school shooting that have happened, but not even one time have we done anything to stop these outrages on gun violence. There is a website called, “shootingtracker.com,” it lists all the shootings that have happened all around the world at, what time, place, how many citizens
Gun control has been one of the top issues facing our country for quite some time. Recently in Texas, a bill called SB11 has been passed that allows for concealed carry of licensed weapons on campuses of higher education. College kids are stressed about balancing their social life, maintaining a good GPA, and getting enough sleep to keep themselves sane. Now those same kids are also carrying around killing machines in their back pockets. Although people believe that this new law is protecting schools from more mass shootings, I believe that allowing concealed carry on the college campus is a bad plan of action because people of that age don 't know how to react in a situation where a gun could be needed, people will abuse their "gun-rights" powers, and it has the potential to cause even more outbreaks of school shootings.
This is an interesting case because all of the guns were purchased legally. So this raises a question on whether our legal system is adequate enough to stop purchases like this, or if there is even a way to tighten the laws without infringing on individual rights. A few of the better known shooting are the 1999 shooting in the Columbine High School. Two students opened fire on their peers killing twenty one students. Through investigation, it was determined that these students had planned this attacked for over a year.
