The incident, and several others public shooting incidents, would have been avoided if the shooter did not have a weapon on his person and if the country had more strict gun control laws. If Texas allows students to open carry their own weapons in school, hundreds more similar incidents may occur. The only time a state should be allow laxed gun laws is when the people have total and complete faith among each other, which is something that we currently lack in the country as of now. As public shootings occurrences continue to rise in the country, the people clearly are not ready to handle the situations by themselves. The Campus carry Law is not a step to better and protect the people as it will increase the rick of others, will not make people feel safe, and lead to more
Lives are not something you can get back, once your dead your dead and therefore America need gun control. The lives taken everyday by that act of gun violence are hideous. School shootings are becoming more common today. School shootings are horrible and shouldn’t happen. School shootings would not be happening if there wasn’t a gun involved.
Opponents of this argument, however, also fear losing safety. They fear that they will not be able to protect themselves on a daily basis, or in a worse case scenario, protect themselves if the government happened to turn on citizens of the country. They would also argue that people, especially criminals, can still find ways to gain access to guns. Guns should not be banned in the United States due to them being able
Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number. Supporters of gun control dismiss the saying “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” because they are misinformed about the number of defensive gun uses (DGU) which far outnumbers the
Why gun control laws don’t work How do you feel Knowing your kids are not safe at school or if you are a student how do you feel that you know you are not safe at school. According to Aaron Bandler ”The Crime Research Prevention Center determined that since 1950, nearly 99 percent of mass public shootings have occurred in gun-free zones. The terror attack in Orlando, FL and the shooting that murdered singer Christina Grimmie in June also took place in gun free zones. The reason is obvious: deranged murderers want to be in a position to murder as many as possible, so they target areas where they 're least likely to find armed resistance, which happen to be gun-free zones”. 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.
Although there were no evidence of who set the building on fire, protesters were held responsible because of their interference on stopping the extinguish of the building and cheering on the fire. Many were arrested that night. On May 3, 1,000 Ohio National Guardsmen occupied the campus. Governor Rhodes held a press conference that provoked many protesters, calling them “un-american, revolutionaries set on destroying higher education in Ohio”. On May 4, General Robert Canterbury wanted to ban the afternoon protesting rally because he believed that the tension and violence from previous days would rise.
Any weapon can be deadly, but people want guns banned. Another example is that if there were a good guy with a gun the outcome would be different. In the same article, it states, “In this instance, however, we don 't have to ponder how different the outcome would have been had a "good guy with a gun" been present, since there was one: a police officer working extra duty. Despite being armed and exchanging gunfire with the shooter, the officer was unable to prevent him from gaining entrance to the club.” Sometimes a good guy can’t always save the day. Society today think that just because guns kill a majority of people, if the government bans them, everything in society will be perfect and there won’t be murders or a police officer can always eliminate the danger.
Many reasons are held accountable for why guns are unacceptable on campus. More guns on campus rises the possibility for unaccredited access to firearms by the wrong people. The chance of the wrong person getting access to a “good guy’s” gun is a larger chance than the gun being used to save student and faculty lives. Guns can be accidentally left anywhere; in purses, jacket pockets, and lawful users can be outdo people outside of campus. Professors and faculty members are not taught to handle firearm combat in a characterized environment.
Gun Violence and Mental Health: Teachers and Staff Should Not Carry Guns in Schools When people started shooting students and staff at schools nobody knew what to do, but they knew that a change needed to be made. With all of the tragedies that keep happening in school campuses there is a debate on what that changes should be. Some say that teachers and staff should have guns in school premises to protect students from an intruder and prevent another horrible incident like the Columbine, Sandy Hook, and many others. Others say that teachers packing heat is a bad idea and that we should be looking at mental health a little closer. Congress, schools, and the National Rifle Association need to see where the main problem is coming from.
Gun Control In the world today gun violence has skyrocketed. From tragic massacres like the one in Sandy Hook, and the shooting at the movie theater in Colorado to gun violence used my many cops in the shooting deaths of many unarmed men. Many innocent people are dying because of the obliviousness that America has to this issue. There needs to be stronger gun control throughout the United States, because the U.S. has weak gun laws, the background checks are ineffective, and too many mentally ill people are getting a hold of guns. America has weak gun laws and needs to follow in the footsteps of other countries by making harsher gun laws.
