Teachers should also be considering Trump's idea and start having guns in school and all teachers need to have the guns with them or in their rooms. President Trump has been really working on having teachers be carrying guns in school. Trump wants all teachers and schools to be
School Shooting safety policies The Florida school shooting was a horrific tragedy that recently occurred, and it has forced us to look at the current safety precautions that schools have in place. This incident has brought up the question of how do we protect our children and teachers. Therefore, I have created a couple policies to implement to try and help reach our goal of minimal school violence. First off, we should improve our schools security to help ensure the safety of our children and their educators (Governance and Policy Resources). Secondly, I believe that schools should hold annual active school shooter drill to prepare students for a violent situation, such as a school shooter.
Several say that it is the solution to the big problem the United States has with school shootings. It may not stop the shooter but it could prevent a massacre. Others believe that teachers having guns is too much. They think that the children need more loving and caring adults in their lives, not more guns. People also believe that any kind of automatic or semi-automatic gun should be banned in the United States.
There are numerous ways that these two articles differentiate, but there are also a few ways they are similar. The two passages that one has read, gives similar perspectives about guns and how they have affected people not only today but a long time ago. In the article “Famous Speeches: "We call BS," Emma Gonzalez 's speech to gun advocates”, states in the section “Stop Blaming The Victims”, paragraph one, lines one-five, that “How about we stop blaming the victims for something that was the student 's fault? What about the people who let him buy the guns in the first place? What about the people at the gun shows, those who encouraged him to buy accessories for his guns to make them fully automatic?
According to David Emery, of the “18” school shootings this year, only 2 of them were a gunman opening fire in a school with the intention of hurting or killing students. Not taking anything away from them 2 schools because these are tragic and sad situations, but the media has no reason to lie and say that there were 18 school shootings. In an article written by Richard Florida, he said that 39 states allow guns to be carried by trained professionals on school premises. There are two sides to this debate and both sides have valid points. On the left, they argue that some teachers are “crazy” and there shouldn’t be guns put into their hands, there is also a chance that a student may steal the weapon and go on a rampage.
Having a gun is a big responsibility and it needs to be treated with great care and consideration. “On Sept. 11, a teacher with a concealed carry permit accidentally shot herself in the leg at an elementary school in a Salt Lake City suburb. No one else was injured.” (Murphy)This situation could become a daily occurence if teachers are allowed to carry guns all throughout the United States. Many people don't know the care and consideration that a gun requires, and when they are having it just to have it, then that can cause situations like the ones above, and cause confusion when people hear a gunshot. As said by Steven H. Gunn, a member of the board of directors of the GVP in Salt Lake City, “But a gun in school is far more likely to lead to the harm of an innocent individual than to the protection of innocent people….
It may seem a little invasive, but schools are permitted to use drug dogs to sniff out contraband during unannounced, random searches and it becomes a controversial problem for all. The use of drug-sniffing dogs in schools is permitted because students do not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in the school and school search did not go against the Fourth Amendment, which is the right of people to be secure in their personal spaces houses and papers. While drug dogs are becoming more and more commonplace in our public schools and to maintaining a drug-dog program can cost district estimates $12,000 and $36,000 every year. Drug dog must go through a long period of time of training and drug dogs are not dangerous to people, but instead it protects people. Without reservation, we must know the history background, advantages, and disadvantages of having a drug dog searches.
Can people own a gun. This shows that gun control laws are just as old or older than the Second Amendment (ratified in 1791). Some examples of gun control throughout colonial America included criminalizing the transfer of guns to Catholics, slaves, indentured servants, and Native Americans; regulating the storage of gunpowder in homes; banning loaded guns in Boston houses; and mandating participation in formal gathering of troops and door-to-door surveys about guns owned. Many people think that a kid owning a gun can make the kid make a bad decision. Also that if a kid owns a gun they can kill there own parents.
“Every Teacher in America Should Have a Gun” by Steve Siebold delivers the message about why teachers should be armed with guns. Primarily he thinks that shooters will be less motivated to try to attack a school that is able to defend itself against the gunman. He also goes on to say that “Every second counts in a school shooting. Calling 911 and waiting for police to arrive isn’t good enough.” He gives us the idea that we need to take action against these shooters and potentially end school shootings once and for all. His second reason to why he thinks that teachers should carry guns is that carrying a gun can end school shootings is he looks at Pearl High School in 1997.
However, an article written by the Chicago Tribune stated that “the American Academy of Pediatrics released a policy statement calling for more non tackling leagues for youth players, more instruction in proper tackling techniques and zero tolerance for illegal hits to the head” (Chicago Tribune 17). They want to educate football coaches on how to properly tackle how you’re supposed to, they also want them to seriously crack down on all of the illegal or dirty hits that kids might commit during the course of a game or even during one of their team practices. In the same Article written by the Chicago Tribune it stated, “In Illinois, state law requires high schools to follow the concussion protocols spelled out by the Illinois High School Association. This year, the General Assembly added rules for when kids can return to school and sports after a concussion” (Chicago Tribune 19). These rules were made and added so that when football players get injured they do not try to come back earlier than they were supposed to and end up injuring themselves even worse than before.
