You may be thinking that teachers are unable to stand up to students or outside threats under current school conditions, but that doesn't mean we have to take these extreme measures. Since school districts want to minimize violence in schools, enhancing security would be the best option; Adding guns to a school environment will only increase the amount of violence. Despite the unruly shooting of young children in Newtown Connecticut,
Sometimes you just cant help it when a gun goes off. People kill people with guns on daily basics out of anger or revenge. I can say I had about two people in my family die because of a gun. It is one of the worst things knowing that someone had that much anger not to talk it out a problem they wanted them dead. It is really not something you want to play around with.
Do not get me wrong: misbehaving should not go unpunished by any means, but I think there is a great, big, bold, black line between bringing a weapon, such as a gun, to school, and shooting a rubber band in the cafeteria. Both actions should be addressed, but not with equal punishment. I come from a family where “yes sir” and “no sir” were mandatory, from generation of “get your ass outside and play until the sun goes down and no in and out,” which makes it hard for me to understand why we as parents have come to fear the punishing part of parenting. We are so scared to “get on to” our children for fear they will hate us, that we have become passive. We do not pay attention to signs of behavior when they are right in front of us.
The media puts this image in children’s heads that there is something fun about having a gun and also that it gives you power and you can control people with it. This is most definitely the wrong message to give out to children, and with gun education in schools students can be taught the practicality of gun use. Similarly to being taught the reality, being taught gun education in schools disappears the glamour surrounding children are exposed to and brings forth the consequences of gun use and abuse. By removing curiosity children have in guns we will see a decrease in the misuse of firearms and media influence as well as stronger boundaries in gun use. Secondly, by having
Although, many people think that it is necessary for the school teachers to carry guns on campus for the reason that they can protect children with guns. Personally, I do not think school teacher should be trained and required to carry guns on campus. Training teachers and requiring them to carry guns is a way that obey the spirit of school, it also has influence on children, teachers themselves and schools. (http://www.schoolsecurity.org/trends/arming_teachers.html) School teachers should not be trained and carry guns on campus because it is disobey the traditional spirit of school. When people think of school, a safe environment for students to learn comes to mind.
Tianna Jones Chris Sullivan English 49 December 7, 2014 Police Brutality Police officers are supposed to be a role model for children, so why are there constant incidents of unjust shootings? They are supposed to protect us from any trouble, not cause more trouble. Police officers should not get a second chance or any warnings. It’s saying that it’s okay to do crime because you will get a second chance. The purpose of this essay is to get the readers to understand that police brutality is not okay!
This paper discusses the reasons behind the necessity of restricting gun possession on campuses. On the first hand, guns on campuses aren’t to be allowed because students aren’t mature enough to handle the possession of a gun. On the other hand, allowing guns at universities may increase suicide rate. Moreover, guns on campuses will obviously distract the learning environment because the ones who possess guns will always threaten students. Furthermore, allowing guns on campuses will make it easier to criminals and will increase crimes.
Staff received identification badges and school doors began to be locked during the day… [and that] the school campus was cut off from the surrounding area by a fence (Shootings 2012).” What they failed to realize is that these security measures will mean almost nothing to a shooter. A door could be easily shot off the hinges and the lock on the door could easily be shot off, and the fence they put up could easily be cut or climbed over. Schools should also make sure to not have a “Gun Free Zone” sign in front of the school, because in most cases the most common places for shootings to occur are in places where there are those signs. This is due to the fact that anyone who is thinking of shooting the school will know that everyone there is defenseless. The shooter will decide to go to the school with the sign rather than the
Students should not be informed of which teachers are carrying. (If it is publicized, an active shooter would merely avoid that class or teacher and focus on other classes or teachers. Furthermore, schools should not resemble military barracks. Kids should have no idea of what adults are carrying guns, if any. Identifying teachers that are carrying puts a target, no pun intended, on those not carrying.
Monstrosity can be characterized as something that others cannot rationalize and in general, mass school shooting are not something easily rationalized. Each of these men chose to end their lives after terrorizing and murdering their victims. Although these men were unhappy they elected not to only harm themselves but to take other’s lives away as well. What is so monstrous about school shootings is that schools are areas where students should feel safe and unthreatened. The idea that someone could easily kill and injure children or young adults is something that the world cannot
