Teachers carrying licensed firearms to school Throughout the issues of gun control, gun control has been a wide spread concern for many people. The concerns for arming teachers with fire arms or limiting the mass production of fire arms and ammunition has always surfaced in the public for avoiding more mass shootings. Most states in America has proposed a law in which teachers should be allowed to carry concealed weapons in classrooms. People in a handful of states strongly believe that to fight school shootings, some teachers should be armed and undergo many strict regulations and fire arm training. States like Colorado pushes for concealed guns in K-12 schools and “Proponents of the legislation say it will improve safety in the country’s schools”.
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.
This should not be a worry for the child or parents but it has to be because at this point any school is a threat. So a possible factor in decreasing shootings is arming teachers, by doing this teachers can fight back instead of shielding or running from the shooter. Reason #2 teachers can defend their students by changing this law and using correct training teachers should be able to carry a weapon. By doing this not only insure safety it will give relief for parents all over the country. This tactic will give school staffs a chance to outnumber a possible shooter.
is the number of school shootings we have, over the past ten years the number of school shootings we have had has tripled what it used to be. This is a terrible thing that happens, but we can maybe prevent the number that happen if we protect our schools better. You should not be able to bring a firearm on a school campus, and if you do you should be arrested, because it is a very dangerous situation. You should have to walk through a metal detector before you are allowed to enter a school, by doing this you could catch people with firearms before they do something stupid, and very bad. Also, maybe have a security guard on campus to help, if a shooting does break out.
But It actually increase the protection levels. Because the teachers have a something to defend themselves with instead of a number 2 pencil. My first piece of evidence is The superintendent of Harrold, Texas, school district sees guns as a tool used to defend oneself and loved ones. This proves That the superintendent is encouraging the teachers to get training. So they are allowed to carry a gun in school.And guns are going to improve the safety levels because the guns are going to be used as a tool to defend the teachers and the students.
Being safe at school is something that a person shouldn’t have to worry, about but it has become a concern for a lot of parents, teachers, and school administration. Increasing security in high school, middle school, and elementary school would help control and protect the kids from possible threats, as well as creating a safe learning environment and show kids that police officers are good people. Most middle and high schools nowadays have resource officers in the building or some sort of security within the school. In 2007 only 40% of schools in the country had a school resource officer on campus (James and McCallion 11). From a study done by The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice services, they reported that “‘an overwhelming majority of students and staff feel safe at school’ as a result of school resource officers (SROs) being present in school buildings” (Weiler and Cray).
Your child could be caught up in the next school shooting, and be killed. If only your school cared enough for their students and had a security guard, they would have been able to prevent the whole thing. Schools today still need more security, but how much security they have today, and what more security can and will prevent. Schools need more security today, we can reduce how many people die to school shootings each
As previously stated, not everyone in the United States wants to completely disappear the second amendment of the constitution. As we know that Texas is one of the states that is on favor of gun rights, and is less likely to get strict gun control laws. Teachers in elementary schools have the opportunity to share the importance of safety against any attacks to their elementary schools to young students. Parents have also the opportunity to approve for teachers to teach about these topics. If parents continue to ask for these teachings to help their children realize the importance of these safety educational topics, districts of these elementary schools will begging to hear the controversy, so will the government eventually.
It is very difficult to respond rationally to a national tragedy. For the past two decades the United States has been confronting what appears to be an increasing epidemic school violence, with each additional instance inspiring an ever more rehearsed debate about gun control, mental health, and school security. Many of the proposed solutions to these attacks are hastily composed in the days following an attack, and are based primarily on myths rather than facts. If we intend to improve the situation, we must take a far more measured approach. We must combat this issue based not on our fears, but based on evidence and best-practice.
The Enoch Brown School Massacre, July 26th, 1764. It may appear that we have been living with school violence for quite some time now. There is no doubt that the violence at schools has become more prominent since the 1960’s, but still is a part of our history. Do we need to come to grips with reality and understand that this possibility is here to stay and we need to find ways to correct it to keep our children safer? Second, in 1999 when the massacre at Columbine High School happened, I remember this country standing much more together; there wasn’t this defiance against our neighbor because they thought something different.

In the recent past, learning institutions have increasingly become crime scenes with dozens of students and professors killed and others wounded. This has sparked debate on whether concealed guns should be allowed within colleges or not. The existing laws prohibits anyone from carrying a gun in and around school premises, but the proponents of the matter are calling for the legalization of concealed guns in schools as the first step in keeping learning institutions safe.
