Also it has been observed that the issue of concealed carry has gained national importance as we have the issue being debated in the congress even in the legislature if it is the right way to follow in trying to deal with the attacks and crimes within the college campuses. This clearly shows the magnitude of the issue and that it is of importance in terms of personal security because the government as much as it tries cannot provide security to every person all the time (Bradley, 6). Recently, it has been observed that there is an increase in college attacks and as a security measure some have suggested that professors and students in these campuses be allowed to carry concealed weapons so as to be able to defend themselves in instances of attack. But it has been observed that in most
They government is emphasizing more on the fully automatic weapons, explosives, armor and other things that only the military should have access to. Some people do not see that the violence taking place in the U.S. has to do with the access to guns and the mental health of the individual. The people who are victims to some of the most recent shootings should speak up and tell others why we need to make obtaining these types of weapons much more difficult. Many individuals choose what they want to see, hear and believe, as in seeing the massacres happen and believing the government is taking their right away and not letting them have what they have the right to have, which is “the right to bear arms.” Most citizens do not see that making further background checks and regulation on the amount of ammunition that is
These military style weapons are made for combat and should not have a place on ourstreets. Assault weapons were also the weapon of choice in most school shooting in America and around the world. The crimes, mostly committed by students or former students who were able to access
Peter Nguyen 2/7/12 Tuesday, April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, Colorado marked one of the deadliest school shootings to ever occur. Along with many other school shootings, they tend to happen because of the students that have some emotional or mental problems. There have been actions that have been made to enhance the security in schools such as applying metal detectors and hiring school police. This will not stop the school shootings altogether. 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.
The allowance of guns to be concealed by students and professors on public campuses can cloud the campus officers’ duties during these chaotic times, potentially cause mislead shots. Every college campus employees certified and trained security to protect their campus. For instance, if a largely debated rally was to be held in an open college court yard, then campus security would have previously notified, but while this controversial meeting is being held, passionate advocates get too passionate and an altercation occurs. With many students and possibly outside students in an open area, shots can be fired by non certified parties. The act of fired shots in a mix of chaos leads to confusion for the on staff security.
Since that day, there has been a major outcry to solve the school shooting epidemic. Government should take measures to reduce school shootings by raising the minimum age to purchase rifles to twenty-one years of age, eliminate the loopholes in circumventing the background check requirement for purchasing a gun, and make all gun laws consistent among the states by federalizing gun laws. There will be arguments that some of these measures will make the school environment seem inherently dangerous or that these steps will abridge the Second Amendment rights and that these measures will also compromise individual State’s rights, but there are many examples where laws were made to apply the same to all Americans
If the game continues at Mile High, what suggestions would you provide? Discussion issues include: • the consumption of alcohol; • the amount of time between permitted tailgating and game time; • the amount of responsibility given to each of the schools regarding fan control issues; • the location of locker rooms; • pre-game information/warnings about unacceptable behavior; • etc. 3. Do you think that the fact that the fans who were originally targeted by police were college students as opposed to a “traditional adult population” factored into the action taken by the police? It’s hard to say for sure what was on the mind of the police.
“At Northern Kentucky University, students were charged with having a keg in a dorm after university officials saw a picture of the keg online.” Cole concludes that privacy issues are a major concern for students who use Facebook, so students should be careful what they post. They are several logical fallacies in Cole’s essay. First of all, Cole uses only anecdotal evidence to support his claim. For example, he interviews and quotes several people about their opinions. He does not include any statistical or research evidence.
Gun control is without a doubt one of the largest and most polarizing social debates of the year. Gun control is the effort to regulate or control sales of guns (Oxford English Dictionary, 2013). One of the most recent shootings events took place at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The indiscriminate use of guns by individuals to harm society has brought the issue into the light of public debate. Gun casualties and incidents throughout the country have woken the public up from its ignorance and shown them the danger guns can pose to society (Martinez, 2013).
Hatred of other people because of race or status and the belief that “Someone” is holding them back is truly what is at the heart of killing and that guns are just the tool of choice. I began with the school shootings because they are fresh, raw and are being used at the core of most gun arguments. “Save the Children” is about as popular as “Remember the Alamo” was more than 175 years ago. Children today need to be taught about the history of America the way that we were so they can be more
