Most Importantly, I believe deeply in my heart that we should allow some teachers to carry guns. They will have to attend gun firing drills and how to handle them and etc, but most importantly they will need to pass a mental and criminal background checks. Even the tiniest red flag that pops up then they wouldnt be given the option of carry a gun on campus. Nobody would last a
Guns Guns Should Not Be Allow In College Campus Guns are particularly dangerous. They are more harmful and deadly than most other methods people try. We should not allow gun on campus because it can lead to reckless behavior, might cause lower enrollment due to safety expectations, it might lead to useless/accidental death, likely to increase in both homicide and suicides, and likely to increase the death of campus police officer. Allowing gun on campus can lead to reckless behavior. For example, when a student get into an argument that lead to a fistfight one of them could bring out a gun to shoot and says it is self-defense that was not.
With reaction being defined by Merriam Webster as “to behave or change in a particular way when something happens, is said, etc.” If the police cannot be there to react to an attack that leaves only the school staff, including teachers. The main controversies involving arming teachers are that: 1.) Children will find the guns and think that they are toys and will thus play with them. 2.) Children will know where the guns are, so when
Why go through so much trouble to take care of the lives of loved ones; our children with avoiding any dangerous situations, with giving them the best, even being overprotective at times when we own a gun and have it in out home. In just a matter of seconds, a moment, in the blink of an eye those loved ones won’t be with us anymore because of that dangerous firearm we are in possession of. Our children will be safer if stricter regulations for these weapons are
The Parkland shooting in Florida. A tragic school shooting in mid-February of 2018 has the whole country spinning circles around more gun control. My opinion and stand point on this subject is to open readers eyes to the fact that it simply will not work. The students pushing for more gun control are starting marches that have affected the schools around the nation in a walkout in March of 2018. This walkout was for the awareness that students don’t feel safe in their hometown schools and also bringing awareness for the seventeen students who lost their lives during the shooting.
After all, I 'm a tiny woman, and I expect about half of my students to be capable of wrestling my gun away from me.” The guns teachers carry could be taken and turned against them, or used on the wrong people. Having guns in schools could lead them to ending up in the wrong hands. Almost any two students could figure out a way to get a gun from a teacher, one distracts them and the other sneaks or wrestles it off them. In all, students shouldn’t have to be afraid of their educators, they shouldn’t be afraid to talk to them, and not all students should be seen as a threat to
The issue that Koone discusses “Is There Support for Arming Teachers in Schools? Koone brings up school shootings that have happened in our country. For example the Columbine High School shooting; this is where 12 students and one teacher died. Another example would be the Red Lake High School shooting. At Red Lake five students and two staff members were killed.
Or if teaching gun safety to them would have the greater impact on lowering the numbers of deaths and injuries due to firearms. But after doing my research I found a good solution to the problem that both sides will most likely agree on. The solution found was that it would be the best to teach children the proper safety precautions and how to use guns, but only teach them in school without them ever actually coming into contact with any. (Moore) Both sides can agree on this solution because kids would be learning about gun safety, but they won’t ever have to touch a gun since it’s in a school environment. All in all any issue that has to do with kids and their safety people should really work to find a solution that they all feel would work the best.
Dear Wicomico County Board of Education, Schools should be a safe place for all students and staff. However, the increasing number of active shooters are threatening and changing school security all over the United States, including Wicomico County. As this is an ongoing problem, we need to create stronger school safeguards to prevent our schools from a terrible disaster. Throughout an academic day, hundreds of students travel through the school hallways to get to their classes, not knowing if a classmate next to them is armed or not. Every student should not have to worry about their safety in a school, which is the number one priority of the school administrators.
There should be more security guards or policemen at schools because of the fact that someone can carry out a deadly assault. Maybe not using so much technology, but using more security guards that can patrol in and outside the school. With the use of security guards the chances of a shooting happening is slim, not only that, but with armed policemen it also helps stop people from thinking about doing something bad. Using technology doesn’t stop an active shooter because it can’t do anything but catch or alert that there is a shooter, even with students’ help they can throw things and give enough time to catch the shooter. But with security guards and police they are the ones that can stop a shooter.
I understand shootings have happened in the past at schools, but I don’t think having police officers in the school is going to stop someone from shooting someone if they really wanted. It seems to me that the police officers are affecting more things in the school than actually helping. If the police officers are going to stay in schools I think they should only interfere when they are needed, for example when there is violence happening. I think that punishment should be by the schools principle or school board, like it used to be. I cannot seem to understand why I police officer would arrest a four year old child, I feel like they should be smarter than that and should know
Why do we still do these drills? Of course, I understand that they are put in place for our safety at school. However, they simply won’t work anymore. We have done these drills for years now and any shooter that comes in will know what our plan of action is. They will know that we are taught to hide in a corner and pretend that we aren 't in the room.
The intent and purpose of these laws is to allow law abiding citizens to defend themselves with lethal force without having to fear prosecution for their actions. Although the specifics vary by state, a common implementation as seen in the state of Alabama is that "as long as someone is somewhere lawfully and is not engaged in illegal activity, the person has no duty to retreat from an attack and has the right to stand his or her ground” (Fair). In states that do not have stand your ground laws, a victim is expected to make every possible attempt to flee from their attacker before resorting to fighting back (Roberts). This creates a potentially dangerous situation, where a victim of violent crime sacrifices their upper hand in a confrontation out of an attempt to adhere with the law. This also empowers the attackers, as they know that their victims cannot legally fight back with lethal force.
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
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.
