What do they think and why is this happening in many schools in the U.S.A? How can we ensure ourselves against it and what does the society think? School shootings in the U.S.A are not an uncommon occurrence. This is increasingly common and causes incorrigible damage and takes innocent lives. In the U.S.A they call it "gun shooting” but the words that describe it best is "school shootings ".
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. School shootings have also brought many social issues to the forefront of the attention of Americans such as gun control, violence in the media, ie video games music moves, bullying, and the way parents and teachers interact with young children and teenagers Violence in schools is truly one of the most pressing issues today. While school shootings date back as far as the American Revolution, The University of Texas massacre is widely considered to be the first mass school shooting in modern day America. The Shootings at the University of Texas were committed by Charles Whitman. Whitman was born in Fort Lake Florida to
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.
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. And who is to say the teachers themselves would not commit a crime? Not every person in the world is “good” and it’s not always the students that are to blame. There have been records of teachers that were unable to teach because of their emotional instability or mental illness. Knowing this, any teacher could pull off a well-devised plan to wipe out everyone simply because no one would have suspected them.
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.
Not enough children get this education as it is entirely up to parents to enroll them into hunting courses or firearms training courses. Learning safe handling techniques and respect for guns as a course in a school environment is the most effective way to equip children with this knowledge. Guns are tools that have a purpose and must be respected as such. Classes such as woodworking, auto mechanics and machine shop have inherently dangerous aspects to them as well yet are taught to children in our schools without complaint or objection from parents. Parents want their children to learn the safe use and handling of mechanical equipment should the need arise
With high teen pregnancy rates, the lack of social exposure with homeschooling appeals to concerned parents. With a more controlled environment, and parents able to monitor their children’s activities it brings a sense of security. School administration as well as teachers disagree and argue that children who are homeschooled are not getting proper social exposure or education. Teachers feel that some parents lack the proper credentials to educate their children. Since there are no education requirements for those who choose to homeschool their children, this is a legitimate concern.
Unfortunately it seems there is more our society can do to help prevent this trend. Drugs are a growing problem with teenagers in our society because parents and the community do not provide enough drug education. Conclusion This trend is in a spiral whirlwind out of control within our youth in society. There are so many educational plans and information to educate the students, parents, school administrators and society as a whole. With the danger explained in detail to teenagers and also teaching how to stand up to peer pressure, this will provide extra assurance and confidence within the teenagers to stand up for their belief in not participating in drugs.
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. Oftentimes, when people look back through the years of [school] shootings, one’s mind
Do video games actually contribute to teen violence? Some adults thinks that violent video games drive children or teenagers to become augmented with rage, and develop to be more uncontrollable. Remorsefully, in 1999 two high school students came to their high school and had an open fire to all the students at the Colorado high school, shooting 20 people and killing 13 -- Linda Sanders filed a lawsuit. Her husband was a teacher at Columbine and among the dead. The media revealed that the students played a lot of violent video games, including "Wolfenstein 3D," "Doom," and "Mortal Kombat."
