I read an article on eschool news, saying that in Arizona there was a bill passed about allowing guns on school campuses. The first thing that came to my mind was are this people crazy. How is allowing guns into school premises any safer then a random student taking the lives of innocent students, because he/she had access to a gun and brought it to school. By permitting students to have guns on school grounds is also telling students that if they feel that there life is in danger, they have the right to kill the other person. This is the message, that I think the bill is trying to say.
After all the things that this country has gone through with students killing other students, because they felt that they did not fit in or other students were bullying them. Arizona feels that this is the best solution to the problem. If you ask me, this idea will come back and bite people in the you know what. To them they think that this is a great solution to reducing school violence. How can violence be reduced when students are being allowed to bring guns to schools.
What I think, is going to happen is that violence is going to increase due to this bill. Every student will feel that they have to protect themselves, so by doing so guns will be carried throughout the whole campuse and students will start shooting each other if they feel that someone is messing with them or disrespected them. There excuse will be that they felt that there life was in danger or the other student was threatening them it can be true, but it can also be false.
Soon enough all states across the country will carry the same bill. Students in every grade level will probably have access to a gun. How ludacris does this sound? even our little once will have access to guns. What kind of nation will we be building, a nation that it's youth are diminshing due to the states bills allowing guns. I will not want this to happen and I know that there are other people out there who don't want this to happen. There are better alternatives out there then legalizing guns on school campuses.
So many young lives have been taken away, because someone felt that they had the right to take the life of some else away. We need to stop this from happening, one way to do this will be by stopping the bill such as the one passed in Arizona from spreading throughout the whole United States. We need to come together as a country and find other ways to stop violence from taking place in our schools. The idea of allowing guns in schools will only make us suffer in the long run. I don't want to lose my younger brother or sister in a school shooting or because they were playing with a gun and it went off would you?
This is something else that we need to look into, what if students start playing with guns and then it happens to go off. I don't know about you, the thought of this makes my heart skip a beat. I would like to say to the Arizona school rethink about this bill that will put many lifes at risk. I know that Incidents such as the Virginia Tech will continue to happen, but having students bring guns to schools is not going to solve this problem. we need to find other alternatives. Iwould like to hear from you. Tell me what you think about students being allowed to bring guns to schools.
