Allowing faculty to carry firearms can have an effect on mass shootings at schools. On 1999 in Columbine fifth teen people were killed, in Minnesota nine people were murdered, in Virginia thirty three were killed, and in Connecticut twenty eight were murdered. Allowing faculty to carry firearms would greatly cut the amount of murders that were committed. Trained faculty can protect children and themselves, while allowing more time for the authorities to arrive at the

Girls can be rude towards people and are quick to judge a person that they have never even met. If girls are not the in the circle of the most popular girls who have all the high end designer names, hair and makeup done perfectly every day, they will most likely be judged and sadly there is no way of changing it. As for the guys if they are not playing sports then they are automatically a loser most likely and getting picked on. Kids are so cruel in high school and the bullying is even worse, especially now that social media takes up such a giant role in the life of teenagers. Cyber bullying has led kids to killing
The boys were considered outcasts and were picked on in school. Many people have come to believe that the motive behind this murderous spree was they were tired of constant ridicule and teasing from classmates. Bullying is a constant problem in schools all over the world; when taken to far this is one example of a horrific outcome. According to the National Threat Assessment Center
Eric Harris was eighteen at the time, while Dylan Klebold was seventeen. At the time of the event, investigations determined that they chose their victims randomly, and had intended originally on bombing their school to kill potentially hundreds of people including their friends. The journals that had been left behind by Harris and Klebold had showed they have been planning for a year on how they could bomb the school with an attack similar to the Oklahoma City bombing that occurred in 1995 by Timothy McVeigh (Columbine High School Shootings, 2013). They were armed with explosive devices and guns hidden under trench coats. They had saved money from their after-school work to assemble a small arsenal.
This article written by Sara Mosle was published on 20th Dec, 2012 in one of the opinion pages of the The New York Times. The article was published after the 6 days of the great shooting that killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown.

Columbine Massacre Tuesday, April 20, 1999 at 11:19 AM, a witness heard Eric Harris yell, “Go! Go!” (Wikipedia). Two teenage student of Columbine high, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, arrived at school with an arsenal full of weapons ready to reap revenge on all those who had done them wrong. After the hour-long rampage and the chaos was over twelve students and a teacher were dead, twenty-four others were wounded and the two shooters had committed suicide.

These poor parents are wondering why on earth would someone want to shoot defenseless children? My life has changed till that day, I feel so bad for the families behind all these children and adults. If I were put in the same situation where I sent my child off to school, and later realized that I will never be picking them up, I would be heartbroken. The teachers are heroes for risking their lives to help save as many children as possible. This is one of the main reasons why I believe that in the 2nd amendment “the right to bear arms” needs to hold back on the right to have weapons because of all the crazy people we have in this world.
Child Slave Labor news tells us that, “the children start to become numb to the wrongs that… it becomes so natural, they don’t even recognize the atrocious crimes they are committing.” Most of these children don’t want to be a part of these wars, so the militias they are fighting for have to resort to despicable acts, like torturing the kids into believing their cause. Some of them probably won’t ever be able to forget the acts they commit, and that’s if they even get out of the conflict alive. All over the world children have been involved in wars and conflicts for hundreds of years, but that needs to change. Using drugs, having no choice and being brainwashed are just some of the factors that make child soldiers not morally responsible for their actions. The number of child soldiers is increasing every day; we can help to stop the violence by writing letters to our lawmakers, or by raising money so these children can be extracted from the violence.
