Many states’ university professors are frightened about carrying the gun. They do not want to hate being afraid of their student, but the professors say that they do not necessarily change their approach to students, but professors are thinking more about what kind of reactions will be given when they give bad results. In the article, Frank J. Donoghue said “I’m in a classroom with just one exit, and I’m at the front. If anyone would walk in with a gun, there’s no way out. It’s on the second floor, so we can’t even jump out the way they did in Columbine.”
Many student leaders have risen from this tragic event such as emma gonzalez in the movemoent towards gun reform. Sadly enough, only after this tragic event occured did people stand up and deal with the problem of gun violence. The AR-15 and similar assault style rifles should be banned from the public and mental health evalluations should rregulaly be implemented. Many political leaders arise and argue that people such as emma gonazalez should not be able to propse or argue for gun laws with little knowledge of the system and openly because of their young age, but as Noah Trevor put it, If kids are old enough to be shot they’re old enough to have an opinion about being shot. Gun violence is growing and without these regulations and differences put aside so will the
In the same article, it states, “In this instance, however, we don 't have to ponder how different the outcome would have been had a "good guy with a gun" been present, since there was one: a police officer working extra duty. Despite being armed and exchanging gunfire with the shooter, the officer was unable to prevent him from gaining entrance to the club.” Sometimes a good guy can’t always save the day. Society today think that just because guns kill a majority of people, if the government bans them, everything in society will be perfect and there won’t be murders or a police officer can always eliminate the danger. These accusations are not true and it’s all based on the place and time.
At the root of the problem is gun regulation in general. These lead to confusion, likely contributing to the increase in school shootings that have occurred. According to the law, one is not allowed to possess a gun if: they are underage (younger than 18 years old), they have been convicted of a domestic violence misdemeanor, they have been convicted of a crime that caused imprisonment for over a year, they have been determined to be a danger to themselves or others, they have been committed to a
As stated by Robert Birnbaum “guns on campus is a wicked problem that can never be satisfactorily resolved.” (Birnbaum 11) I don’t see a solution for this problem anytime soon because people are trying to solve this issues with stricter policies and more laws but this will has not worked so far so it is time to try something new, allowing students to conceal carry is that something new. How many more lives and school shootings is it going to take to convince the public that although there is some risk in allowing guns into our schools we would benefit more than we
The students and staff who suffered from this horrific encounter did not want to be hunted nor did they choose too. The hunter can pick and choose whom he/she wants to hunt, yet the hunted does not get to choose whom they are being hunted by. A school shooting relates to "The Most Dangerous Game" because like Zaroff, the shooter picked what school he wanted to take advantage of, and Zaroff chose to take advantage of the ship-wreak
For example a teacher, named Randal Davidson (53) shot a gun at Dalton high school in Georgia, critics went on how “Everybody is already tense about the debate around guns in school because of the deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, two weeks ago” This infers that teachers shouldn't have guns. In
Almost every school in America is a “no gun zone” which leaves the schools defenseless to school shootings. Donald Trump had the idea of making schools, “a gun zone.” That does leave the argument that “some teachers are not qualified to carry a gun” (Phillips). The schools could have the teachers who wanted to bear the guns register and receive training from the police department. Then tell the community that a certain number of teachers have a gun at the school but do not release any names.
“Since 2013 there has been an average of one school shooting a week in the U.S., and 18 since the beginning of this year. This is a horrific thing that is getting out of control in the U.S. When a gunman killed 20 first graders and six adults with an assault rifle at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, it rattled Newtown, Conn., and reverberated across the world. Since then, there have been at least 239 school shootings nationwide. In those episodes, 438 people were shot, 138 of whom were killed.it is time we bring awareness to this situation.
The shootings that have happened in schools throughout America over the past few months has divided Americans on what they need to do as a nation to stop additional shootings from occouring. Many believe that creating new laws on buying weapons by requiring background checks, holding adults liable for the actions of their kids and requiring safety devices on weapons to stop youngsters will stop these massacres in schools from happening, it 's a step in the right direction, however, it 's not good enough nor is it effective enough, America needs well regulated gun laws and the politicians must understand that the laws should be based on facts, not opinions. There are several problems that need to be looked at in order to determine which laws are necessary. According to a recent study, America has the highest amount gun related deaths every year in the world. “Germany, has 371 gun related deaths, France 255, Canada 165, the united kingdom 68, Australia 65, Japan 39 and America, 11,200”.
but I wanted to go in with Brendan, the police wouldn 't let me." Investigators pulled Brendan Dassey out of class to question him without his parent 's permission.

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. In Winkler 's article, he
I agree with the case ruling that gun free school zone act exceeds congress ' authority. Although having a bunch of students caring a gun on school grounds isn 't a great idea I don 't necessarily believe that has anything to do with interstate commerce. There is no good reason for students to bring a loaded gun to school. However due to the amounts of shooting we 've had in public places leads me to believe that the government should get involved, obviously states can 't control this issue it themselves. It 's Simply too to get guns just look at the charleston shooting where nine people were killed inside a church, the FBI admitted that the shooter should 've never been cleared to buy a gun.
In the article “College Presidents Seek Debate on Drinking Age” the issue of lowering the drinking age from 21 to 18 is strongly discussed by college presidents and various organizations and Universities. Even though both parties agree that alcohol abuse in colleges is an extensive problem in schools around the country, college organizations are debating with lawmakers to lower the drinking age. With the intention to reduce driving accidents and deaths due to alcohol abuse, the drinking age was elevated to 21, creating the rejection of many college students and administrators in the country. Lowering the drinking age to 18 would not have much impact in the attitude of young people since there is no much difference in maturity in 3 years. This statement is supported by a Duke University sophomore from Singapore, where the drinking age is lower.
