Guns are undoubtedly dangerous yet, unlike most dangerous items they are far more controversial to talk about. There are two extreme positions on this topic that many can fall into when talking about firearms. Some want to ban guns completely, while the other side feels like guns are a right granted by our constitution and do not need regulation but instead, educate gun owners on the proper usage of a firearm. There are some flaws in both arguments. The problem with banning guns is that we should protect ourselves if the need arises.
America is built on diverse ideas from different group of people, and by not comfortably allowing students, who are the future of this country, express their opinions; we are slowing our growth as a nation. In addition to that, professors on campus don’t feel safe either when guns are allowed on campus. College students just like me, want good grades and when they feel like an exam was too hard, they like to complain to the teacher. In a normal classroom, this wouldn’t be a big deal. However,
The first step could be placing metal detectors on the outside of school doors to not only physically, but also psychologically help students and faculty by putting an end to school killings. Cost, safety, and prevention are the topics I will
More gun control is not the answer! Carrying a concealed firearm reduces crime and there are plenty of studies to back this up. Moreover, acquiring a concealed carry permit may inform you about laws you may not have known about, and could make you more mindful in the future. Lastly, it is our constitutional right to bear arms and we should be able to exercise our rights without reconciling. There are many opposing views pertaining to this argument, but if everyone was just able to come to an agreement; the world would be a better place.
In theory, the abolishment of guns would not have an effect on the levels of gun-related violence as gun control laws do not deter crime; the improper use of guns and firearms falling into the hands of the mentally-ill and unstable deters crime. Gun control will infringe upon the right to self-defense and deny citizens a sense of safety, and lastly, criminals will find their own means to obtain weapons illegally regardless of what laws are set in
First of All, we need we need to make our schools more safe by implementing metal detectors and other equipment. If we would have metal detectors at every entrance and or bag checks entering the school. Lets give a scenario, lets say there is a teenager ready to shoot up a school. They are walking to the building. They had to pass the metal detectors first and then go inside the school's main building and then get their bag checks.
We will not be silenced “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” These 27 words have meant a lot in the news lately. You see Facebook posts, tweet after tweet about this. I am not here to argue with you, but I feel like only one side of this topic is being discussed. I feel like in class I am not being heard. I have a right to my own opinions, and they deserve to be heard.
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,
I can only pray that school security is stepped up the moment gun control is stepped up. I can only pray that everybody, such as teachers, staff, students, governments, and the citizens of the U.S.A. make reasonable decisions that allow every student to learn in an environment where they can be and feel safe from those with evil inside their hearts. I can only pray that the safety of students, all over the country, is taken into consideration by those who want to continue having gun laws as carefree as they are now. We can only pray or we can
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
The Second Amendment, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." –James Madison, The Second Amendment. The founders of our country as well as our constitution believed that without weapons in the form of firearms, there is no freedom from the harsh rulings of a corrupt government. These founders had just been freed from the duty of war from a corrupt and harsh government, without their weapons or the weapons of the people; this country would not be where it is today. That is why the founders found it in there top priorities in the bill of rights.
