Very few people in a school will react to a school shooting because they are either not prepared or do not have the right mind to do anything about it. October 1st 1997 Vice Principal Joel Myrick prevented Luke Woodham from shooting up a school because he had experience with handguns and was also retired military. If we had more people who kept guns in their car and who knew how to use them “properly” school grounds would be safe if a shooter came wanting to shoot people or worse. Around the US and world people are affected by guns
With are very little opposing viewpoints on teachers having the right to carry a gun while in class. 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.
If your child was attending school then your opinions will change real quick. You would be asking the school “Why wasn’t my child more protected?” Schools need to be more prepared for things like this, even if it does cost lots of money. I will not have my life be at risk because we don’t have stronger security, anything can happen. Government is supposed to protect, this is an area that needs immediate attention. How does the killing spree of killing 28 elementary kids get your attention and make you want to open your eyes and think about other kids attending school in the United States.
School shootings are a serious matter that needs to be solved immediately, we don’t know when the next one will take place so we need to start now by taking precautions. This does not mean take away guns or create a more stricter gun law because the people who are willing to do this are most likely willing to get a gun illegally. But what this does mean is raise your kids the right way. If your kid has no self control in your house, how do you expect him/her to have respect and self control when they leave the house. If you raise them right and they make their mistakes after they leave the parents house then its on them, but if its because they were raised with everything just showing up in their hands with no work or deserving of anything,
Should Teachers Carry Guns in School? Ever since the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, there has been a massive upsurge of gun rights activists and anti-gun protesters clashing heads. Recently, President Donald Trump stated that teachers should be authorized to carry guns to help protect the students in these situations. There are many supporters to Trump's ideas but there are also many protesters to the idea. Teachers should not be allowed to carry guns in the school environment, it is just not worth all the checks and money that it takes, They are not trained to be skilled shooters, and because it is unnecessary.
Since the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012, there has been at least 239 school shootings nationwide. In those 239 events, more than 400 people have been shot, of those 438, 138 were killed. 138 daughters, sons, mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers went to school one day and never made it home (Patel). In response to the school shootings, schools use lock down drills to help prepare students and staff for an unspeakable event if one were to occur. Lock down drills’ purpose is to help prepare students and staff by making everyone aware of what the plan is when there is an intruder in the school.
-Arming Teachers- There have been more school shootings in the past 8 years than theres has been in the past fifty years. School shootings have gotten out of control. Kids are scared to go to school because they don’t think they are safe. Most schools do intruder drills, but schools could be doing more. One possibility is arming teachers which would provide a good deterrent to school shootings.
However, bringing more guns into a school will only further deteriorate the situation. Teachers should not be armed in schools because the could not handle a real situation, and the liability is too much of a risk. To elaborate, it is widely agreed that a student’s well-being is a teacher’s concern. For six to eight hours every day for 5 days a week, the life of the student is in the teacher’s hands. However, a teacher has never been expected to arm themself to protect a student until now.
Plus training so it wouldn 't be for example. Mr buck thats old and wouldn 't know what to do. The reason I’m saying this is because now always student just think they can come into school and do what they want such as shoot it up. Most schools have researchers officers but obviously in today’s world that strategy isn’t working out to well. So if we let the student population know in every school that sled teachers had guns they would be more cstioiusnknowimg that there are more than 1 gun in the school.
Even a teenager with an unstable, developing mind should think twice in the face of such barrier. The allowance unlikely will prevent the act of revenge, but it has a potential to turn it in a less dramatic way that will focus on direct offenders, not the social group itself. If I would be a student, I would not decide to shoot classmates and other people at school, if I would know most of them have guns. But it does not mean I would abandon plans to punish people who insulted me directly or indirectly, I just would choose less noticeable way like a
