The safety of the students at school may be at risk, such as the school shootings that occurred at Columbine High School. While many feel that providing teachers with handguns may prove detrimental to safety efforts, imposing such measures would provide educators and students alike with increased security and overall safety. Teachers should be allowed to carry handguns in school because it is their right to bear arms, it would provide better protection for the kids, and it would provide the parents with reassurance that their children are safe. First, as a United States citizen, it is our right to bear arms. It means we the people have the right to own and carry firearms.
Adults can speak to the young children and let them know what’s right from wrong considering our young children are the ones being targeting when it comes to gun play as well as violence. Our young children have the power to prevent violence, so if we speak up it will help our community safer for our family, friends and as well as ourselves. Another solution in which we could try is to arm the community with knowledge. Let’s find the right person with the right knowledge that will be willing to educate the community on gun violence. People such as local police officers, school teachers, local officials, and or other community-based organizations that will be willing to provide us with the resources we need to fix the problem or at least try to fix the problem.
Children should not be afraid to go to school, and they should not be questioning their safety. Guns are used in robbery, theft, muggings, and rape.

People are threatened with guns all the time to give up your belongings with the risk of losing your life if you don’t corporate. We don’t need to go through this.
Jeremy De La Cruz Pre AP English 2B Mrs. Brogan 23 April 2013 Word Count: 500 Will Gun Laws Stop Future School Shootings? The saying “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” has always been said. With recent school shootings, many people are wondering if gun laws will prevent future shootings.

Guns help intimidate and protect when law enforcement can't reach the incident in time. If any laws against guns were made, don't outlaw them because regardless guns can be obtained and used incorrectly. Instead, set restrictions and require a certain level of gun safety knowledge taught in a school based on the idea of self defense.
Having an armed security guard or peace officers at our school alone will act as a deterrent towards violent criminals from thinking about going to the school and committing a shooting. “Armed security guards increase safety. That's exactly why politicians, celebrities, banks, airports, rock concerts; they all used armed security to keep people safe “(Malveaux). Having an armed security guard or a police officer at our school will act as a deterrent to help keep a criminal from showing up and commenting a shooting, the criminal will see the armed security and decided against it because they have resistant. Another great benefit to having an armed security or a police officer at every school is that they can respond immediately to anything going on that would require there attention.

Every year, thousands of people die senselessly around the world because of easy access to assault weapons. Assault weapons are semiautomatic high powered rifle with a detachable magazine; examples are AK-47s and Uzis. These weapons pose a threat to the safety of our citizens and law enforcement officers alike, and therefore should be banned. History tells the story of these weapons being the weapon of choice in mass shootings, illegal drug operations and bank robberies. These military style weapons are made for combat and should not have a place on ourstreets.
In order to provide a safer environment where danger can be resolved more efficiently, teachers and faculty should be allowed to carry weapons in school. Typically, school massacres happen in the more suburban areas where the police stations are farther away so that even if the enforcements were notified of the occurrence, more than likely they would not make it to the scene in time resulting in the perpetrator getting away. If the teachers in the schools were able to pack heat, they could take action against the culprits. Not only will this save more lives, but the number of school shootings will drastically decrease as everyone would not attempt a school invasion as they are aware that the staff is well-armed. Some (mainly parents) may oppose to this proposition as it may be an awkward environment where students are trying to learn but are feared by the knowledge that the very person standing in front of them teaching, is armed with a dangerous weapon.
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.
