Hypothetically, a law is passed stating that teachers are allowed to carry guns in school. In a sick twisted world, the teacher becomes the school shooter. Your student is in class and their teacher pulls out their government funded school weapon and starts shooting. How is your child supposed to protect themselves if the approved district teacher starts shooting the students with a malicious intent. Teachers should not be allowed to carry guns at school.
Security matters in most of the campuses are threatened by the continuous attack by thugs with less attention from the security personnel. People who are in the campus feel danger and fears from the weapon of the gun. students use their gun on campus to save own life once there is no security personnel, therefore the demand for the self-defense has grown significantly in various campuses. There are three different articles, but these have same point that is antagonizing of the gun on campus. In article of “Guns, Campuses and Madness”, Frank Bruni thinks that how the students of the University of Texas think about misbehavior of firearms.
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
If we do not counter the intruder there could be injuries and even death. There are many dangers in schools this generation. There’s a chance that strangers just walking into any school they want and causing a massacre. Specific people should be designated to carry guns in schools to allow us to fight an intruder instead of just being sitting ducks. Other than hiding in classrooms and waiting for the intruder to hopefully pass without coming into our classroom, we could have a trained teacher, principal, or any member could protect the
Imagine having a normal day at school, then once you're in your last class, a teacher from the room across the hall runs in and yells “Everyone get down there is an active shooter!”. What would you do? Some individuals would say “Its okay because teachers have guns.” But is giving teachers guns the best idea? Will teachers with guns solve anything? There have been many cases of teachers being the ones behind the gun.
A possible concern is that concealed firearms will make criminals more likely to commit more crimes. This is true and it may cause more crimes. Adults may be tempted to use their firearms in the wrong way. In spite of this, it’s important to remember that carrying a concealed handgun can help stop a public shooting spree. Maybe those adults who are tempted to use their firearm unlawfully will start a shooting spree, but those who are responsible will help stop that from happening.
In fact, people say it is simply just a distraction. Questions have been asked and many others have been formed due to the debate of whether or not gun control is needed. The argument is that the guns themselves are not the problem. The point being made by these people are that the guns that are used for mass shootings are usually legally bought, therefore, it is not the gun killing people but the people who own the guns. Also, that these mass shootings have happened in places where guns are not
Gun Control is a good thing in many different ways for many people. However, when you have a law abiding citizen who can not purchase a gun because the restrictions are too high then there is a problem. Gun Control was made to keep a person who has something on their record like drunk driving multiple times, armed robbery, or illegal citizen from buying a gun because the government wants to keep everyone safe and does not want to harm anybody. As stated in my research found in a world encyclopedia, “Many people own guns for the protection of their home.” (“Gun 440”). What the article is saying is that if you take away the handgun of a citizen who has done no harm, and when there is a need for the protection of your family and they have no gun then they have nothing else to do but hide and hope the criminal does not find them before the police come.
One of the opposing is that the teachers are not trained to kill anyone, unlike a cop a cop is trained to pull the trigger on a person but the teachers would only be trained on a metal target on a gun range. This way of thinking is false if the country has come to the point where there are mass shootings, the constitution says every US citizen has the right to bear arms and protect themselves. If a person doesn 't have the ability to protect themselves or the children in there care they might as well be dead anyway. Some would say it would be useless to have a teacher carry a gun, because then the cops would not have a job. Nonetheless the teachers just have to hold off as long as possible until authorities arrive.
The supporters for concealed carry on college campuses argue that students and teachers should be able to open carry on campus because it will reduce the number of school shootings. The great state of “Texas has made carrying a concealed weapon on college campuses legal as of August 2016” (New York Times).
In Adam Winkler, a constitutional law professor, article “The Guns of Academe” states the negatives of having guns in college and universities. Showing the limits of positive views people have toward it. many negatives view of students and faculties feelings, age, and responsibility. He explains There are many articles that explain the positive views of having guns in a school environment. While on the other hand, there are many more articles that go along with Adam Winkler 's side for the negative views of having a gun in a school area.
In fact, the prospect of guns in the classroom is more likely to cause professors to keep the conversation tepid and avoid certain controversies; everyone else will watch what they say, how they say it and to whom. This would be quite the opposite of the open and transformative exchange that universities have made it their mission to offer. There is a further point. As we saw in the aftermath of the Ferguson and Staten Island police incidents, and earlier with the Occupy Wall Street movement, university campuses are places where political protest takes root. Perhaps colleges are not quite the haven for political protest that they once were -- like, say, in the 1960 's.
The thing that people don 't understand is that, yes gun owners want to take advantage of this open carry law, but most people that have their license will still conceal their weapons as they don 't want the attention. Most say that when the heat, calms down on all the law changing that they might be more comfortable with open carrying so it’s more of a usual thing to be around. Now gun carriers know all the risk of having their guns visible. Most of the instructors that teach the classes tell them that showing your gun can possibly make you the first target in a situation. Having an open carry they know that it could backfire on them.
Most gun owners have guns as protection for themselves and for their families. One of the most prominent arguments for to pro gun ownership side is that guns are protection from a seemingly increasingly violent world. Also “...having guns gives [people] and least a fighting chance in the event of a burglar or home invader manages to get in.”(safewise.com). The second amendment gives people the right to own and use guns and is “...an undeniable personal freedom guaranteed by the constitution.”(openreader.org). People also “...support the rights of hunters, sport shooters, and recreational gunmen.” (openreader.org).Criminals are already breaking the law, so adding more won 't deter them.
