Keep the Guns Away But Keep Our Children Safe
How would you feel if your child was to come home and tell you that, that one angry, grumpy teacher is now allowed to carry a gun to school? That seems pretty mediocre, I know if I was to have a child, I wouldn’t be ok with it. Some politicians are trying to decide on rather or not should teachers be allowed to carry guns to school for protection. Due to the recent gun incidents in the schools all across the world, politicians are really considering rather teachers should be equipped with guns to protect their selves and the children under their supervision. I personally don’t think that this is such a great idea, as a matter of fact it’s ludicrous. Teachers shouldn’t be allowed to carry guns in the school because the generation isn’t quite ready for that change in history, that’s the reason we have resource officers in the schools, and adding another gun to the situation isn’t going to always be a good solution \.
The way this generation and the upcoming generation is set up teachers nor the students are ready for that change in the school systems. The way how the kids in this generation act is ridiculous. They are very disrespectful, just imagine a teacher student argument taking place, then all of a sudden the teacher gets very frustrated because the student is being very rude and obnoxious .Worst case scenario, it could be reversed and since the students know that the teachers are equipped with guns they will push the teachers to their limits just for the fun of it and that one decision of allowing teachers to carry guns then turns into a major problem.
Schools hire resource officers for a reason. The purpose of the resource officers is to keep the faculties, students and facility safe. Resource officers are trained to handle certain situations that teachers aren’t trained to handle, and any situation involving a gun doesn’t involve a teacher. Teachers are supposed to teach and prepare the children for the future and obstacles to come. Teachers would never be as equipped and trained with as much knowledge as a resource officer would about guns. Just imagine a person who never touched, hold, or even fire a gun before, operating a gun under a heated situation. That would be pretty chaotic, so many people would be in danger, but politicians aren’t even thinking about that.
Furthermore, just because someone is capable of Carrying a firearm doesn’t mean they're solving a problem with it. Adding guns to the situation is ludicrous, why add more fire to the flames. I’m pretty sure teachers carrying guns isn’t going to help the gun violence in school, as a matter of fact it’s putting innocent Millennials in danger. That’s basically like having a shoot out in all schools across the country. Instead of guns they could find out other solutions to stop the problem, adding those guns to the situation is just promoting even more violence.
Guns shouldn’t even be allowed in school, but yet, you have politicians who are trying to bring them into the school. Politicians really believe allowing teachers to carry guns in the schools is going to reduce the gun violence incidents. I strongly believe bringing guns into this problem and all the other school problems will cause nothing but chaos. Teachers shouldn’t even be equipped with guns at school, reasons being they nor the students are ready for that type of change in the school system, that’s the purpose of having school resource officers, and guns is not the only solution.
