“Parents should take care about their children, teach them what is good and bad, or what they should do or not; increase their esteem and show them the value of life.” (School Shootings: How to Empower Against Guns) And before these cases happen they should teach their children need to react in these circumstances or emergencies. Researchers have concluded some “symptoms”, or clues, of school shootings; these are not always helpful because school shooters are not always having the same plans and there’s any profile of them. 1. Attackers talk about their plans. They usually talk about their life,
Parents could also help the authorities by letting school teachers and counselors know if they are aware of any misbehavior at home. Many of these children could be living with a lot of trauma and violence at home. Furthermore parents need to have more control over their children and help the authorities by checking backpacks before children leave for school. But this is not always possible for all parents to do because many of them have to go to work early or cannot spend as much time with their children. Even if this is not possible, parents who keep weapons at home should keep them away from the reach of their children.
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.
Gun control is a long disputed topic, and many people have their own opinions on what is right and wrong. This should be made possible; it would help with security, and peoples’ sense of safety. Many students are scared of roaming campus, whether at dawn or dusk because of the fact that crime rates are higher on campus, more than anywhere else in the state most likely. Some would go against this because of the recent shootings, or the infamous school shootings of the past. That being said, guns should be allowed in the hands of the right people with the right background checks.
This is something that has led parents to discuss and express their opinions for and against uniforms. The line is blurred for some. I see the line crystal clear. Boston Public Schools should not dictate the use of uniforms because not only does it suppress individuality, but it also hinders the experience of a comfortable school environment. Uniform by definition is constant, unvarying, and undeviating which directly contradicts the significance of individuality.
All of this has been a controversy in our nation and will continue because we all have different perspective on this topic. As for me, you know what I think, and most definitely the law should be enforced more. Especially, in providing safer school environments for young students and doing background checks on gun purchasers, but not banning them completely. In addition, those who oppose all of this have made their points clear and this debate will continue until our government officials reach an agreement on this difficult
With all of the name brand shoes, clothes, and jewelry this world has to offer, its often hard not to want everything that is seen. Teens are killing each other over things as simple as shoes. Not realizing that lives can not be replaced like the materialistic things can but because violence is often publicized for fun, teens often forget that its wrong. Fights are often started and recorded just to be posted on youtube. Teens are on the news for gang related street brawls and taking guns to school because they are being harassed but when they do positive things, it doesn’t get as much recognition.
Say No to Guns on Campus Nowadays the violence in campus becomes a social issue, which arouses more and more for people to be concerned about, especially campus gun shooting. Gun shooting becomes a serious problem that people should be aware of, since we expect school to be a safe environment for students to study and socialize with each other. Many significant shootings at Heath High School in Kentucky, Columbine High School in Colorado, and Virginia Tech University in Virginia have caused not only many injuries or deaths to the victims, but also panic feelings and sorrows to the victims’ families, friends, and instructors. In order to avoid these campus tragedies, also the risk of suicide from mental heath issues, these tragic events need to be controlled by firm cooperation of the government, university board of directors and parents. Besides, there are several arguments proposed to carry guns for self-protections.
Trump, President of the National School Safety and Security Services. He said, “The vast majority of teachers want to be armed with textbooks and computers, not guns.” (Arming) His opposition to arming teachers and school staff focused solely on implementation issues, not a political agenda. He stated, “School districts considering arming teachers and school staff with guns would take on significant responsibility and potential liabilities that I firmly believe are beyond the expertise, knowledge-base, experience, and professional capabilities of most school boards and administrators.” He raises questions about whether the school board would have adequate policies and procedures to govern the carrying and use of guns by teachers and school staff. He also points out the complexity of management: choosing types of firearms; training teachers and school staffs; risks of them being intentionally disarmed by a student; loss, misplacement, or having their firearms stolen while on campus; accidental shooting; impact on insurance and potential legal liability. He believes that carrying firearms should be left to school safety officials such as school resource officers and school police department officers.
There is too much of a chance for things to go wrong with weapons being available on school property. The security guard could be over powered and the weapon that they have in possession could be taken. Some individuals would believe that a new or better security system can be a more practical solution to school setting and not more weapons. They would rather have cameras to watch for the suspicious activity then to bring any weapons into the schools. It could make the students and the staffs feel more uncomfortable.
