Directly following the first encounter with a bully he turns and retaliated the only way he can think of, threatening to bomb his high school’s football team. The following year his depression and anger began to accelerate. He begins to think even more morbid and become increasingly depressed. Schools have a history of thinking that putting zero tolerance policies and having metal detectors in their entrances make the schools safer. But this causes the students to hide their feelings, and causes a lot of the bullies students to hide their increasingly depressive and angry feelings and as it already well known, people who mask their true feelings can do more harm than good.
Bullying Bullying is a way to intimidate someone or a way to make someone do what they want a person to do. Bullying is a form of abuse that can be emotional or physical. Victims of bullying usually lose interest in their school work and become depressed and eventually either drop out or commit suicide. People are bullied because of their race, ethnicity, gender, disability, religion, or sexual orientation. According to statistics about one fourth of all students from elementary through high school are victims of bullying.
Emotional bullying is when people gang up on another, spreading rumors, ignoring people, harassment, etc. It causes long term side effects like anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. Emotional bullying is common in high school because it’s the most subdued kind of bullying. Most kids don’t understand that they’re bullying others. I myself can say I didn’t know that I have bullied and have been emotionally bullied.
Growing up in rough times means rough times in some schools. In Columbine High School Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were the victims of bullying throughout high school (Moore).

The thought of living in constant fear, with only the expectation of more pain to come has driven some to take their own lives in hope of ending their suffering. In 2011, twenty-two of Clark county's youths were successful in carrying out their suicide attempts(Milliard, 2011). It is also becoming more common for victims of bullying to seek revenge for their injustices by harming mass amounts of students. Not everyone is capable of brushing aside the hurt and anguish caused to them by a bullying, just because they have gotten older.

Kids do not always realize what they are doing to others can be hurtful, whether it be to a sibling or a friend. I feel like when kids think of bullying they automatically think of the big kid coming over and stealing their lunch money, they do not realize that the jokes they tell or the silly names that they call others fall under bullying. They do not take into consideration what they are doing and saying to others, and they really need
An eighteen page checklist is not the answer. Most examples of “standing up” is not institutionally okay anymore. Post Columbine High, schools seem to be terrified of any specter of violence. If a student beats up his tormentors, or even if he loses, he or she is automatically suspended or expelled from school under the zero tolerance policies. If he or she hurts the bully badly enough, he or she can be tried in a juvenile court.

This just goes to shoes the effect that a gun has on certain individuals, for some it can change their lives drastically in a second. Some learn from their mistakes and some don’t and the ones who don’t learn anything are the ones who have a problem mentally.
