Teachers did not go into their profession to be babysitters, and they certainly didn 't go into it to be security guards. Now society is trying to force them to be both. How anyone could possibly secure those weapons so that students could never obtain them would be a nightmare- and unrealistic? And to think that if a school full of teenagers can access a weapon in every classroom that violence would decrease is absurd. There are many negatives to teachers owning guns such as: cost of training and weapons, teachers turning against their students, and keeping teacher who has the gun a secret.
Lives are not something you can get back, once your dead your dead and therefore America need gun control. The lives taken everyday by that act of gun violence are hideous. School shootings are becoming more common today. School shootings are horrible and shouldn’t happen. School shootings would not be happening if there wasn’t a gun involved.
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.
Many argue that the ALICE response program just exposes students to things situations that will cause unnecessary stress and fear. During the training, students are taught how to handle a situation where they is an armed intruder in their school. Many parents do not want these drills in place because they “don’t want to expose their young children to such discussions of violence” (Blad). The whole idea of a intruder coming into schools and trying to harm them is very scary, especially when your school is going over in detail how to defend yourself in a situation because the training can make it seem much more likely to occur. The training makes this situation seem much more real, which causes students to be scared and worried when they come to school because they may think they will be shot.
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
Many things can happen inside of schools, including unexpected things. There are dangers in schools that without the proper equipment to defend against it can result in death. That equipment are guns. When people threaten the school with guns and violence, then we the students and staff need to be ready to counter the intruder. If we do not counter the intruder there could be injuries and even death.
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?
This paper discusses the reasons behind the necessity of restricting gun possession on campuses. On the first hand, guns on campuses aren’t to be allowed because students aren’t mature enough to handle the possession of a gun. On the other hand, allowing guns at universities may increase suicide rate. Moreover, guns on campuses will obviously distract the learning environment because the ones who possess guns will always threaten students. Furthermore, allowing guns on campuses will make it easier to criminals and will increase crimes.
Students should not know which teacher carries guns because an unstable person could take their gun. Also, not knowing could stop the person before they take action that can harm others because they are afraid they 'll get shot. Arming teachers would mean we are no longer waiting for the first responders and can help take actions before something bad happens. (Merica & Klein,
Schools have been evaluated by different organizations on whether or not they should be involved in off-campus cyberbullying. Some believe that they can be involved in off-campus to stop suicide or emotional distress and to stop them from putting the victim through lots of pain. Others believe that schools shouldn’t intervene in cyberbullying outside of schools because it affects their right to the first amendment which is “The freedom of speech”. Cyberbullying should be taken into the hands of the school if it happens off-campus because if nothing happens then it can get a child hurt or even killed. Students who are targeted by cyberbullies have no way to escape from the attackers brutality, who can drive the victim to suicide or self harm.
I feel that the people ever allowed to bring guns onto school grounds are law enforcement. Many people, such as myself, would not feel safe being in a school environment being around people with guns on their hip. We come to school to learn and to hopefully feel safe, but having tons of people with guns on them would not make me feel safe whatsoever. Yes, if there ever was a school shooting on campus, it could help bring the victim level down if there is someone in the area of the shooter. School shootings are pretty rare even though they have been more frequent recently.
People will not want to live there because of the fright of being a victim, causing this to be empty job spots and lost of money. Aside from affecting commerce, and safety, it would bring conflict to the education of kids. It will hurt their future education and aside from that, if students are packed with heat, teachers are not going to want to go to school and teach. Teachers will feel threaten and unsafe. However, Lopez won the case because he argued that there is nothing in article 1 that says they can pass laws saying that guns are illegal in schools.
In the event of an attack where students and tutors are to defend themselves, they are unlikely to stop the attackers. Unlike trained police officers, students have a lower hit percentage especially when under a terrifying incident of live shootings. This increases the risk of shooting innocent bystanders or other properties. During such high-stress situations, the majority of students will even find it difficult to draw out their weapons to defend themselves against the assailants. This is majorly due to the lack of the much needed experience and training to maintain their composure and ability to make rational judgments on the course of action to take when attacked.
