However, when in the wrong hands, guns can be used to do terrible things like mass shootings. Many people argue that we need more mental health services or that it is a safety issue and therefore we should have more armed security at schools, concerts, large events. However, I argue that in order to prevent a mass shooting from happening we need stricter gun control laws. A very recent mass shooting was the Florida school shooting. A 19-year-old male killed 17 people including 14 students and 3 staffs working at the high school and leaving many people injured.
However, a lot of individuals think teachers should not have guns because it puts students in more danger, it's unnecessary and the teacher could also have mental health issues. For example a teacher, named Randal Davidson (53) shot a gun at Dalton high school in Georgia, critics went on how “Everybody is already tense about the debate around guns in school because of the deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, two weeks ago” This infers that teachers shouldn't have guns. In
And also the lack of muscle power to hold the gun, because as we know guns have recoils. In a social experiment done by a show called What Would You Do, they tested if a fake pregnant woman can persuade people to stop buying guns for their children. To everyone she talked to, they all disagreed to not buy their children a gun. This is a sign of ignorance to what danger may apply if that child pulled the trigger. Also, a 9-year-old girl did from Arizona, she accidentally killed her instructor during practice on August 25, 2014.
These terms soon turned parents into a troop of angry citizens that demanded justice and answers to their accusations. In accordance with David Scott, author of the article “Virginia Mc Martin Dies at 88; Figure in Case on Child Abuse”, it was suggested that this letters contaminated the case from the beginning. In the letter, they could find the name of Raymond Buckey causing hysteria among the children’s parents. Five employees of the daycare were taken into custody and charged with over 120 counts of child abuse that in the end turned to 321 charges involving 49 children. The news of the case soon spread throughout the country.
I foresee both, advantages and disadvantages, about arming school staff members. I believe that this could be part of a solution for some smaller and rural school that cannot afford armed security or have limited access to law enforcement. I also believe that something is better than nothing because the sooner we can stop this event, the less citizens that are harmed. Law enforcement has focused heavily on advance training and preparing for these attacks since the Columbine incident in 1999. Over the past 19 years law enforcement continues to evaluate the tactics and mindset of the active shooters.
Jaycee Dugard, a girl who was kidnapped at the age of 11 until she was 29, says, “It was so much a part of my life...It’s always there, in the back of my mind. It never really goes away” (ABC News). This shows that those who are affected by child abductions are forever changed. Jaycee is more than grateful to survive yet the evil in eternally within her. We do not want this for our children.
Teachers Carrying Guns By:Mark Roessner So far there have been shootings across the US in schools. To address the problem, President Trump has come out with a few ideas and suggestions that will hopefully preserve children safety at schools. Those ideas are not without their critics, pros and cons. Trump listened to a couple victims and parents of victims tell their mournful story and came out with a suggestion.“I want certain highly adept people, people who understand weaponry, guns” to have a permit to carry concealed firearms in schools.” Is what Mr.Trump says. I feel like this is the correct way to address this menace of school shootings, teachers will be prepared if the worst happens.
There have been many innocents of where demonic people choose to walk into a school full of loving people and just shoot them. Recently there was a massive shooting in Florida, resulting in 17 people dead. Students, teachers and family members that witnessed this tragic situation happen or just the parents who will not be able to hug their children(s) bye before school in the morning spoke out to this country and to the President that they have had enough, and they want something done now. Many people argue that they should ban guns just like other countries have to prevent any shootings of any kind, but President Trump has an idea stated in “Trump suggests arming teachers as a solution to increase school safety” by Dan Mercia. That teacher should carry guns on them for the school’s safety, but states that there is already plenty of teachers who are licensed to carry firearms and we should have them raise their hands to volunteer for the training.
Lori is correct, what security is there? Since 2012, 57 students in the United States have died from gun-related school violence issues. Since 2012, 0 students in Australia, 4 students in Canada, and 2 in Mexico have died from gun-related school violence issues. As proven by research, the U.S. has serious school violence numbers. Mentor High School is a mixing pot of a new generation wanting to change this violence.
Metal detectors can protect schools from violence, especially from school shootings. To end the violence, metal detectors should be placed in every public school across America to ensure the safety of the school 's students and staff. Public schools in America have been challenged a lot in the past few years. They have been constantly questioned due to recent school shootings. The most recent tragedy occurred where “seventeen people [were] killed by a gunman [on February 14, 2018] at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida” (Levenson and Sterling).
