For this reason, security professionals believe that arming students shoot back would actually make matters worse in the extremely rare instances where mass shootings occur on campus.” This can create a bigger problem than the one before. Such accidental shootings are not accountable for which leaves families of innocent victims upset and frustrated because justice is never served. According to The Campaign to Keep Guns off Campus “Despite the horrific shootings at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois, college campuses are far safer than the communities that surround them. Ninety three percent of the violence against college students occurs off campus, where guns are widely available. To prevent future mass shootings, we must strengthen our gun laws to make it as hard as possible for dangerous people to get dangerous weapons.” If gun laws are strengthened, campus shootings might decrease and innocent lives will not be
Should Guns Be Allowed on College Campuses? Have you ever wondered how it would be like to know every student in your classroom carried a gun? Many worry on how this would change the college experience for everyone attending, working and visiting a campus. Guns on campus should not be permitted because it would encourage more violent crime, distraction from the learning environment, and increase in suicide. On the other hand, people for gun rights claim guns on campus are what students need to keep themselves safe.
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. Imagine you are a 21-year-old in college. You know the very basics of how to handle a firearm, where the trigger is, where the safety is, where to aim, and that 's about it. You just came from your most difficult class and you 've been assigned so much homework you could
have the right to protect yourself. Face to face with a madman and his gun, the last thing we want is to be left defenseless. This is why I am a student for concealed firearms on campus. I believe the most efficient defense against an out-of-control triggerman on campus is other armed students and professors who can shoot back and stop the carnage. School campuses are not places common people feel concerned enough to protect themselves with a gun.
The shooting in Parkland, Florida has been the talk in the news, newspaper and in schools. The shooter was mentally ill, and he bought a rifle legally, which should not have been allowed to happen. Many people such as the FBI, the president, the parents of Cruz, and Cruz himself are in the wrong for what happened. There needs to be more precautions so things like the school shootings and massacres can come to an end. 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.
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.
Campus Carry Law will be established with the purpose of making the campus safer, but in reality it will create an unsafe environment; it will grant students the right to carry a gun on campus for self-protection, but the law should be postponed for the reason that it will cause a hazardous environment in college campus. Campus Carry should be delayed for the reason that it will evoke an unsafe environment. According to University of Rochester Medical Institution the human brain is not fully developed until the age of 25 years old and also conclude that teenager’s process information with the amygdala, the part of the brain that processes the emotions. However, only adults over the age of 21 and older are allowed to conceal a handgun and for those students that are excluded from the right to legally conceal a handgun will feel enervated and will surpass the law and get a gun from an
There is a possibility that a kid who is planning a shooting could just be in a classroom and find out were his/her teacher keeps the weapon, and they wouldn 't even have to sneak a gun in. That’s a downside but what if we made gun safes that only opened with a teachers ID or own password making it almost impossible for a student to open it. Conclusion By arming teachers there are alot more positives than negatives, Yes bad things can happen with a deadly weapon in a classroom but people will continue to do these horrific crimes knowing there is hardly anything that’s going to stop them. So by arming teachers this will give some fear in a potential shooters eyes versus a shooter knowing they can march into any school they want to and kill students and teachers without anyone putting up a fight until first responders getting to the
The various challenges that are inherent in campus life include issues of alcohol and drug abuse, social obstacles, and stress. Adding guns to such an environment is the perfect ingredient for an explosive environment that may increase the safety risk to students and everyone else within the campus. There will be an increase in accidental shootings while the mere presence of firearms in the environment might lead to conflicts among students that may escalate to levels where people are killed (Skorton, & Altshuler, 2013). Even if it is the last option, guns should never be placed at the hands of emotionally volatile young persons such as college students. Doing so will only increase the probability of lethal and near-lethal outcomes from the behaviors that manifests themselves in the context of such
The most recent school shooting has everyone questioning whether guns should be banned or whether we should keep guns in the United States. Most gun owners have guns for protection and to protect their family and themselves. It's weird that only this shooting that happened in florida is being taken seriously but no one took the other school shootings as serious as this one. No one took into consideration that there has been many other shootings and just because only a few kids died so therefor it doesn't matter because only a few kids died. There is many other solutions to stop school shootings and banning guns is not going be the solution.
University Gun Control: A Tale of Three Stories Only a few decades ago the topic of gun control on universities was non-existent. It was a given that the possession of firearms was not only allowed but required as per the government and university legislation being that having a prepared militia at that point in time was a necessity. Given a drastic change in circumstances a century and a few decades’ later, weapons were completely prohibited from universities. In the past two decades alone catastrophic events, such as the Virginia Tech Massacre, have had a drastic influence on the policies of legislation. In aim to prevent these unfortunate events a few theories have been raised which consist of prohibiting guns, allowing firearm carry
