It’s on the second floor, so we can’t even jump out the way they did in Columbine.” Therefore, when guns are present on the campus grounds, the fears cause learners and the entire campus community interfere with their day-to-day activities. The professors can fear giving the students bad grades because of the risks posed. For a peaceful learning environment without threats, guns should not be allowed on
So like they went to a military school or trained to be a security guard. Someone who can be trusted with a gun other than a teacher that has had little to no experience. Also there should be forms or something to notify the parents that there are trained people with arms inside the school for protection. With this said as long as the school can create a safe environment by making the kids feel safe with guns in the school instead of feeling in danger, even with the guns in the school, they should be
Therefore, colleges should definitely prevent people who have a background of violence and crime from speaking at their campuses for the safety of their students. However, this also means that speech that does not call for violence should not be prohibited, no matter how offensive it is. After all, when all of these historical standards are picked out and taken into account, what we are left with is the bare backbone of our nation’s philosophy: the freedom to express your true
Another supposed benefit proposed by supports for guns on campus is potential shooters will be discouraged to attack campuses that permit concealed carry. This might be true but the potential shooter could also feel confident that he can cause more damage with concealed carry holders present. Policemen responding to the situation would have a hard time identifying the shooter if there is more than one person with a gun and students would also not be able to identify the shooter easily. Concealed gun carriers would just make the situation more tense and
Instead, it states the opinions of both parties while posing a series of questions. Within the article, questions such as “Should schools arm teachers and guards?” are asked and responded to from both a left wing and right wing perspective. The left wing response to this question brought up how an Oregon community college that just had a shooting massacre wasn’t a gun free zone; students and staff were allowed to conceal and carry a firearm, none of which stopped the shooting. This argument also brings up how costly training all staff at schools would be, which is why it should not be implemented. The right-wing response uses sources from the NASRO postulating that if staff were armed in schools, students would be able to feel much safer.
Trusting someone not certified and trained thoroughly for an immense period of time with a weapon to protect young children and other adults would be putting the kids and the protector at risk. It’s better to not leave it all up to chance and to stick with the public service of law enforcement, certified protectors, who can truly handle the job. The fight or flight situation, also known as hyperarousal, is a very detrimental affect to authorizing teachers to have firearms. It is a reflex, the go-to response in a stressful situation. And, what can be more stressful than a school shooting or having to shoot someone yourself?
There have been many cases of teachers being the ones behind the gun. Which is why giving teachers guns is far more dangerous than not giving them anything. Some argue that teachers with guns are dangerous because the teacher could be the active shooter. But on the other side of the debate, people say teachers with guns in their position is very helpful because if there is an active shooter they will keep their students safe. 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.
I will first discuss how hate speech causes harm. Then, I shall explain how hate speech should be barred in specific spaces in order to protect the majority. Next, I will explain how college campuses should operate as safe spaces where hate speech is regulated and allowed only in cases meant to provide students with a learning opportunity. Following this, I will examine Northeastern University’s policy on hate speech and compare it to my proposition. Finally, I will present the opposing perspective that believes hate speech should be allowed and encouraged on college campuses in order to present students with new viewpoints and help them grow as intellectual
Today, there is a worrying trend of increased violence in schools that involves the use of guns. The natures of these crimes have resulted in loss of many innocent lives. While people are still trying to come to terms with the heinous nature of these crimes and devastating consequences of their aftermath, there is a widespread debate that rages on, on what could be the solution to this crisis (Anderson 504). Numerous ideas have been suggest including arming teachers and other civilians in schools to enhance protection and reducing the number of firearms that are in the hands of the public (Baltimore Sun 505; Anderson 504). Among the various potential solutions that have been debated, limiting the number of firearms available to public is probably the best solution for addressing the current wave of crime in learning institutions.
While on the other hand, there are many more articles that go along with Adam Winkler 's side for the negative views of having a gun in a school area. Gun violence in college and universities does not happen as often as killings in a home or on the street happen on a daily. Guns in a learning environment wouldn 't help out as much as if there were none. In countless articles and many places on the media scene, it is out there that having a gun is not as safe as having no guns. The are many negative views for those who believe in no guns.
Non supporters of concealed carry on campus have great counter arguments for the pro-gun supporters. Someone carrying a weapon can be easily disarmed. A weapon can go off accidentally through negligent discharge. According to ConcealedCampus.org, “Among the more than 150 college campuses that currently allow concealed carry, there have been three accidental/negligent discharges—two by faculty/staff and one by a student. Two of the negligent discharges were the result of the license holder carrying the gun in a pants pocket without a holster (both of these incidents resulted in non-life-threatening injuries to the license holder’s leg), and one was the result of the license holder showing a new gun—a gun with which she was not yet familiar—to her coworkers (this incident resulted in only minor abrasions that did not require medical attention)”.
Will students feel so safe and free when surrounded by other students who may be, secretly, arms bearers? Will they feel emboldened to take moral and political risks? Will they feel inclined to air potentially offensive views? I doubt it. In fact, the prospect of guns in the classroom is more likely to cause professors to keep the conversation tepid and avoid certain controversies; everyone else will watch what they say, how they say it and to whom.
Even though, guns are allowed in certain places, is almost impossible do not feel threaten by it. How can we tell if the person carry a gun means not harm? I think that many people, including those who are pro guns, will feel uncomfortable as well. Moreover, imagine if someone goes insane and starts shooting in a college campus, how can the police determine who the bad guy is. College
The thing that people don 't understand is that, yes gun owners want to take advantage of this open carry law, but most people that have their license will still conceal their weapons as they don 't want the attention. Most say that when the heat, calms down on all the law changing that they might be more comfortable with open carrying so it’s more of a usual thing to be around. Now gun carriers know all the risk of having their guns visible. Most of the instructors that teach the classes tell them that showing your gun can possibly make you the first target in a situation. Having an open carry they know that it could backfire on them.
