Kids around the U.S. in schools are starting to write threats around the school as a joke. The sad part is when somebody brings up a school shooting and it is not seen as a big deal because we are now used to these types of outbursts happening more than they should. If we look back at 1998 when the Columbine shooting happened people were in shock because it was the worst that has ever happened before. It has happened so much from then to now that nobody is surprised when we hear about one. People are now expecting these to happen and that is the problem.
This scenario happens too often in the United States. America’s youth is unable to cope with difficulties in their lives and subsequently they are able to acquire a firearm and shoot fellow classmates in schools across the country. If students were unable to obtain a firearm due to stricter gun control laws, then the school shootings would seize to happen. However, in the present day United States, people seem to be able to obtain a firearm easier than obtaining a car on a car lot. Every day eight American children and teenagers die from gun violence.
That’s more than a fourth of Americans that are over the age of three. Despite the fact that so many Americans are at school everyday we continue to have violence in the schools without making a real attempt to stop it. Most Americans are familiar with infamous school shootings such as the Columbine High School massacre and the Virginia Tech Shootings, but what many don't know about are the countless other shootings that have happened in between these major ones and still happen to this day. Since the year 1966 there have been over 65 mass murder school shootings in the United States alone. While many states are trying to push for laws to help prevent school shootings from happening like stricter gun laws, more security in schools, and even in some states, the right for some teachers to carry a firearm with them in class have sparked huge debates across America.
Shootings in American Schools Introduction In April 1999, two students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold attacked and killed 12 of their Columbine High school classmates. Since that eventful occasion that shocked the world, cases of school shootings have happened with higher regularity. Since 2000 for instance, there have been over 50 critical school shootings in the U. S as observed by (Hawdon, Oksanen, Rasanen & He, 2012). The office of the Governor (2007) noted that to put the problem of targeted school-based strikes into perspective, from 1993 to 1997, the possibilities that a child between the ages of 9-12 would be confronted or injured with a tool in class were 7 to 8 %.
Indeed, these students, and the general public, do not often consciously think of these problems, but whenever the idea arises in some other part of the country, a paranoid fear overtakes them; these dreadful events have their own history to discuss, in collaboration with that dread of impending death.

Students have been attending high school for many years and studies show that more than 80% of all working Americans have a high school education. In recent years people have started to question if high school should be something optional so that people are focused on more specified skills. Students should be required to attend high school because they learn many essential life skills, most jobs require a high school diploma, and it provides the opportunity to improve social skills. First of all, there are skills learned in high school that are essential to living a normal life such as discipline, the ability to set attainable goals, and organizational skills. Students are taught discipline by enforcing dress code, having closed campuses, and penalizing students with detention.
Outrage in Schools Due to Cellular Use Are these deathly rules we are dealing with? What happens when something occurs with a student or our own child? What are the school administrators going to do if something goes wrong and there is nothing a parent can do simply because they had no earthly idea it even happened?
