Locker searches are another avenue to find stolen property. There are plenty pros to having locker searches now let observe the cons that are not satisfying. It is not private to have people search lockers at school. They think that only school locker searches need to happen to students that have horrifying school records. They might just keep the firearm on them contrary of bothering with putting them in their lockers.
There have been 141 people killed in a mass murder or attempted mass murder at a school since the Columbine Shootings. (Pearle) Sandy Hook Elementary School, Columbine High School, Virginia Tech, and University of Texas at Austin are just a few examples of the tragic events that we are reminded of during debates on gun control. It is foolish to believe that having stricter laws on guns will control the school shooting epidemic. With this argumentative essay, I hope to provide multiple sustainable reasons why harsher laws on guns will not stop mass school shootings. To begin, after the shock of the tragic events, the world begins to analyze the shooter’s mental capacity.
Truth be told, there is very few ways to prevent an attack on a school. Merriam Webster defines the word Prevent as “to stop something from happening or existing.” This means that the police have to know beforehand if an attack on a school is to be prevented and arrest the attacker before the attack happens. For clarification, the reason I am using the term “an attack” instead of “a shooting” is that an attack can happen at the school that does not involve a gun. School attacks that have not been prevented can only be reacted to. 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 issue with incorporating more guns in a school campus is a terrifying idea and in most issues, can backfire. A victim from the school shooting in Forida stated, “I understand what it's like to fear for your life.”, students shouldn't have to fear their own school. Many students are against gun violence and are having walkouts and protests, they want their voice to be heard and want to see a change in schools. Many students from across South Florida supported the Stoneman Douglas High students by walking out of their classrooms. The students from Douglas High aren't alone and are being supported by many other students.
Evan was abused sexually and physically at foster homes. He was suicidal. Friends convinced him to shoot other people at school. (Transition: To summarize, the main causes of school shootings are easy access to guns, mental instability and trauma.) CONCLUSION I.
The killers behind the Columbine High School, Thurston High School, and Heath High School shootings all had different reasons for committing their crimes, but the signs were ever present. Mental illness, obsession with guns and other weapons, deviant behavior, and hatred openly expressed to others or in homework assignments are the most common ones. Because school shootings have become something to be feared, it is time that faculty and students actively seek out those who may do something rash. If a teacher notices that something is off with a student, he or she should at least pull the student aside and express possible concerns. If a student sees or hears something that may be a threat to the safety of others, he or she should report it.
As source C illustrates, aisle 1 has school supplies like backpacks, notebooks, and markers while aisle 2 has whistles, pepper spray, and tasers. Parents and students are increasingly aware of the unsafe environment of schools, so they want to prepare for the worst. However, if Wicomico County Schools practice shooting drills without warning, students will take them more seriously than if it is announced that there will be a
An each time there is a school shooting, I pray that it is the last school shooting, but it is not. There is always going to be another school shooting. That is not the part that breaks my heart, the part that breaks heart is watching others students go through the same things that I went and am still going through. Sophomore student Gabe Parker, someone who I thought was my friend, brought a handgun to my high school on January 23, 2018, and at 7:57 a.m. central time, opened fire on my classmates, killing 2, injuring 19 others. That is not the worst part.
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.
Those within the building suffered through the dread of death, but their families had to endure the fear of their loved one falling to those bullets. To combat that, many students have taken to a strike from school, protesting the current gun laws; their efforts aim them in the direction of changing the dynamic of the United States. In their home state, the victims of the Marjory shooting reformed the guns laws. The specific manner in which the gun laws were changed can be seen
Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold went on a school shooting spree in Littleton, Colorado. Their catch phrase became, “Do you believe in God?” (Johnson, 2012). Multiple students were asked this simple question and killed if they answered yes. Harris and Klebold changed education from coast to coast in the United States with the massacre they carried out that morning in April of 1999. Reporters and journalists showed more respect for schools when the idea of school shootings were still very shocking.
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
“By definition, zero tolerance refers to strict, uncompromising, automatic punishment to eliminate undesirable behavior” (50). Zero-tolerance in schools are taking away educational opportunities from students, which goes against the U.S. special education law of zero suspension. As adapted by the justice system punishments, zero-tolerance punishments are predetermined by the act which does not allow a student’s individual needs to be considered. Zero-tolerance in schools have been permitted because of the rise in crime and alarming attention from school shootings, which created the Gun Free Schools Act in 1994. “Before long, schools escalated the range of reasons for suspending and expelling students to include violation policies about alcohol, tobacco, drugs, fighting, insubordination, dress code, and ‘disruptive behavior’” (50).
School shootings are something that happen rather often here in America, that most of us seem to be getting increasingly (and alarmingly) desensitized to; a simple Google search could tell one everything they need to know about the most recent shooting, which, at the time of writing, was at a Dickenson High School. The first thing someone should ask in this situation is ‘why, exactly, is this happening?’, and there are plenty of people who would be willing to give a different opinion to why this is happening. Whether someone believes it is the effects of lax gun control, or violent video games, or even poor mental health care, there is no denying that this is a recent phenomenon. Perhaps to trace to the root of the problem, one should look
