This article reveals how students are using their lockers to hide weapons brought from their own homes to resolve some of their problems they are facing with other students. Moreover, children are being arrested and charged as adults for carrying and bringing weapons to schools. Many cases like this one are happening in the United States school grounds, ending with tragic results. Many parents are not aware of their own children’s behaviors. Parents could also help the authorities by letting school teachers and counselors know if they are aware of any misbehavior at home.
Debate Paper Brook R. Pritchard May 25, 2014 XBCOM/275 Curt Haydt If you have recently turned on to see the news or picked up a newspaper you may have questioned what is happening in our schools, and start to wonder whether our schools are still a safe place for our children. The recent school shootings have set fear in many of our parents about their children's safety in school. In the recent years, the number of school shootings has occurred regularly. Who do you think we should blame for this? Before we can put the blame on anyone, we must hear what both sides have to say.
There are some gun activists and concerned parents who believe that teachers and school administrators with gun licenses should be allowed to carry guns in schools. They claim that this could provide a first line of defense in the case of an emergency. Also, they argue that not allowing guns in school makes the school an easier target. Dr. Patrick Jonston states, “Criminals prefer a disarmed population. Defenseless people are easier to victimize.
Don’t You Think It’s Worth It? Sure the thought of someone searching your things may be a little disturbing, but your child’s safety is definitely worth it. Your children go to school to learn, to a place where you are not going to be to protect them, to the same place where other, more troubled kids go to. Sometimes these troubled kids are angry, want attention, or are just bored, so they bring in drugs or weapons. I am sure that you do not want your children exposed to this, and there is a way to stop it.

Without a doubt, there is a greater safety concern in our school/college campuses today. There is a higher sense of danger in a place where once thought to be a safe haven for students to go and educate their minds. Today the controversy of weapons on campus to protect those who attend has climbed to the top of the list of school administrators, government officials, and media coverage. This is due to the current events occurring not just in our country but all over the world where countless students and adults have lost their lives to individual(s) coming into schools for reasons never really explained they take innocent lives.
Then, the other charges for having the gun on school property will be another 2 to 4yrs in prison. That is why I believe it is better just to go to school and get an education and to leave all of the negativity out. This mistake could cost a person their life or a long time in prison. I have heard cases involving students bringing guns to schools. One minute you hear about the charges and the next you don’t even hear about the outcome.
Having a gun in the room gives off a feeling that safety is there. It would give a safer environment to the teachers, parents, and kids (Debate). Knowing that something can stop the gunman from shooting, kids would feel safer about going to school. Timing is a big factor during a massacre, so giving a gun to a teacher could save more
Should Teachers Carry Guns in the Classroom? For all the dangerous places in the world, such as places with wars and violence, you would think that a place where we send our own children would be safe. Schools shouldn’t be a place of fear. Schools are not safe anymore because of the violence that goes on in schools and sometimes deadly school shootings. We have had a lot of recent school shootings so far this school year and the year isn’t even over yet.
I do think that it would be almost irresponsible for teachers to have guns. This paper will be focusing mainly on the topic of if teachers should be able to carry guns in school, the qualifications needed as a teacher to carry that gun, the argument against teachers carrying guns, and why it seems more of a probability that the gun would be more of liability then it would help.
