Safety officers should be armed in all schools in order to minimize crime. Many people believe is it completely ludicrous in fact unbelievably insane the fire arms should be kept on school grounds. Allowing for safety guards to have access to using gun power in an elementary school can increase a young mind’s thirst for violence. Under no circumstances should a gun be visible to a child
The media puts this image in children’s heads that there is something fun about having a gun and also that it gives you power and you can control people with it. This is most definitely the wrong message to give out to children, and with gun education in schools students can be taught the practicality of gun use. Similarly to being taught the reality, being taught gun education in schools disappears the glamour surrounding children are exposed to and brings forth the consequences of gun use and abuse. By removing curiosity children have in guns we will see a decrease in the misuse of firearms and media influence as well as stronger boundaries in gun use. Secondly, by having
If children are never taught how to properly use a weapon, it can turn into a dangerous tool. I believe there should be classes in school to teach kids the history of guns and weaponry, and also the rewards and major effects that a gun can have on a life, home and country. Rather than teaching kids to be naive to the truth of weapons. I believe a curious mind desires the unknown and what is off limits. If guns aren't properly used they can be misused and dangerous.
In one article it states how certain schools were taking actions to hopefully limit these events. In the article, it states that in Oregon “there was talk about creating a list of students with troubled pasts (Shootings 2012).” This is a prime example of how they were refusing to have to resort to allowing the teacher to bring a firearm on school grounds. They go on to tell of some of the security measures they took to prevent unauthorized individuals from entering the building. They state “to prevent similar killings from occurring. Staff received identification badges and school doors began to be locked during the day… [and that] the school campus was cut off from the surrounding area by a fence (Shootings 2012).” What they failed to realize is that these security measures will mean almost nothing to a shooter.
Word gets around faster to teachers then administrators. If teachers hear something they can take quick action instead of waiting for an administrator. When teachers take action faster it stops something big from taking place which eventually higher reputation for school. But teachers should have a valid reason for searching the lockers. Teachers should have a reason for searching lockers not just because they feel like it.
Random locker checks are not done to torment and/or invade the privacy of the students, but for many other important reasons which include school security. These checks are required because malicious students bring drugs and weapons to school and store them in the lockers. Random locker checks should be made obligatory and done frequently to assure the wellbeing of the students. In the first place, locker checks help increase the safety in schools. Safety is a problem in every environment and especially school.
I feel some crimes that have taken place in this country could have been stopped or lessened to a degree with a concealed firearm. The government can not ensure the 100 percent safety and wellbeing of all its citizens. For example the school shootings and workplace instances etc that happened in this country. But if there were more responsible law abiding people that had a concealed weapon on them some of these tragedies could have been avoided or at least minimized the damage that those criminals caused saving the lives of others is always a good thing. Criminals are not known for following the rules so all law abiding citizens have the right to defend themselves by any means needed.
People who own guns need to keep them put away and out of the reach of children. Parents cannot think that because they taught their children all about guns that it is ok to keep the guns accessible to all. Parents needs to understand themselves how much peer pressure a child gets and what peer pressure will cause someone to do something they knew was wrong, but they still wanted to be in the cool bunch of kids. Or the only way someone will like me is if I pretend to shoot my best friend. So truly it is about the training of guns not the
If a teacher had a gun it would have to be hidden somewhere, but not in a locked place for quick access if someone were to open fire. Children, especially small children are very mischievous, if a child were to get the gun it could go off and harm another person. The only way to eliminate this problem would be to put the gun in a locked place and if a gunman came in, a teacher would most likely not be able to unlock the safe to get the gun out to protect the students. Teachers are very important people and are looked upon very highly. In my opinion they have the most important job which is educating others.
However they are not, because in most cases of bullying it is usually one person’s word against the others. An idea could be that more security should be established in school by providing cameras inside and outside of schools. Supervisors should be more aware of student behavior before, during, and after school. And police should patrol a certain amount of distance to make sure students arrive safe to their homes. Parents should be aware of bullying and be available for any instances that occur.
