In reviewing multiple school shootings, a trend establishes. With respect to popular, well-known school shootings, students that committed these acts were introverted and possessed the characteristics of students who could commit on-campus violence. In reflection, school shootings led politicians to question current gun laws, as well as the controversial second amendment. With the creation of the Second Amendment in the original Bill of Rights in 1776, the
Seeing the things on the news that is happening in today’s world is giving the people the idea of wanting to shoot up people in a school. From the news covering headline stories about school shootings, they are giving viewers of all ages ideas of how they can get into a building and how the shooter’s plans are executed. Then it gives the viewers ideas or a motive to try something similar in order to make national news. The media need to minimize what coverage and attention they are giving to the school shooting
This article by Wondemaghen analyzes the theory of claims-making in school shootings and how this leads to the creation of ‘social’ problems. He asserts that these social problems often become the main focus of public attention, omitting objective subjects found in mass shootings. I will try to renovate this theory to show that this distortion of societal problems occurs as a result of social media’s platform of ‘death drive’, which frames only the violent details of school shootings, inevitably leading to arbitrary
This shows that gun free zones are targeted the most like schools which shows that gun laws don’t work because of the amount of mass shootings in these restricted zones. We have had to many shootings in gun free zones and we have to loosen up restrictions in these zones and increase security in these zones to combat the criminals that do their sick acts of terror. The background to my paper will be talking about the mass shootings to backup my claims I will use 4 examples of mass shootings that happened in gun free zones and 2 happened to be at schools where children study. The first place is a school named Sandy Hook elementary where in Newtown, Connecticut CNN claims “Adam Lanza, 20, guns down 20 children, ages six and seven, and six adults, school staff and faculty, before turning the gun on
Often, students who suffer from bullying are self-conscious, and it is very difficult to express their ideas for fear of being rejected and being abused. The use of uniform creates equality between students and these in turn create security strengthening freedom of expression. When my children changed school and went to study in one uniform requiring our students, I felt like I 'd won the lottery. You know what that means saving time and discussions in the morning to choose clothes for children? In my opinion, the uniform not only helps us save time and also represents a cost savings.
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.
To begin with, how does bulling affect mass killings?Bullying affect mass killings, for example in the story" Mass Killings," it says" some people have also suggested changes in the way the news media covers mass attacks.

Symbolic interactionism illuminates fundamental elements that attribute to school shootings. According to Jeanne Ballantine and Joan Spade in their book, Schools and Society, A Sociological Approach to Education, “Symbols are the concepts or ideas that we use to frame our interactions” (2015:19). Symbolically, a sense of self and hierarchical place is determined by social interactions (Ballantine and Spade 2015). Students find themselves determining how they see and feel about themselves by how their cohorts, parents, siblings, teachers, and others interact with them. Sadly, the young perpetrators of school shootings have derived their sense of self from their social experiences of isolation, bullied harassment, and low hierarchical status, producing skewed and biased self-perceptions.
School shootings are an increasing issue in the United States, considering there have been over eighteen in 2018. So why don’t you hand everyone on U.S. soil military guns? Even psychotic individuals who take pleasure in murdering innocent children. School districts need to promote the idea of carrying military guns to your teachers to serve and protect your children; to increase the probability of teachers with AR-15’s, you must offer rewards. Taking this action of emphasizing the importance of concealing AR-15’s amongst faculty not only benefits the school safety but you as an impressionable-adolescent student: offering lethal weapons, background knowledge, and experience to all students during school will inherently increase safety.
Amy Shuffelton, assistant professor at Loyola University of Chicago, with a specialty in Philosophy of Education and Gender Theory, presents various reports about gun violence in the United States. The article discusses the retribution the violent acts have in schools and how the media makes a significant impact in school shootings. The article talks about gun violence not just in schools, but in neighborhoods and public places, and the effects such actions have on school’s shootings. In addition, how the mass media presents an incident to the public plays an important role in future gun incidents. Even though the article is not specific to schools, the fact that the environment a student is presented with, does affect the choices they make.
