Why should we put students in danger, with allowing guns on campuses?Gun control is the government controlling how many guns should a person have at home. Many people want gun control because without gun control there is more violence in the streets and there are many people dying because those who have guns just don’t know how to use them in a good way. For those who are against it they say that people should be able to decide whether to have a gun or not, they want to be able to defend themselves and their homes from criminals. Guns should not be allowed. I believe guns should not be allowed in college campuses because a student can just go on a killing spree because they might have a mental problem, some students don’t know how to use it appropriately, and it could increase the number of crimes or suicides.
Can students go out of control? I believe they can because now in days there’s a lot of racism and that could be a cause for a student to lose control. In some colleges by allowing a student to have a gun they are probably marking the death sentence for another student that doesn’t have anything to defend themselves.There is a lot of racism and those who have a lot of hate inside their heart they won’t think twice and start shooting students. Inn college it is not common to see someone carrying a gun with them, a student might freak out and start to panic most of the students on campus. Sometimes some act normal so students think they are not dangerous, but what students don’t know is that they might have a mental issue.Most psychiatric professionals agree that the nation of a previously sane, well-adjusted person could simply snap and become very violent toward the students around him/her. “ After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it.” ( William Burroughs )
There are certain students that own a gun, but yet don’t know how to use one appropriately. For those students who have never hold a gun before, but owns one one then it might be very dangerous for them and for the people on their surroundings. Most police officers spend five to seven months learning how to use a gun. While for a student it only takes about three days to own a gun, but without any training. It is definitely dangerous for someone to own a gun without a proper training. It is possible for a gun to go off by an accident, if it’s not owned by serious person. A student without any experience at all with guns might end up hurt to and won’t know how to solve the problem. “ It’s not gun problems; it’s a cultural control problem.” (Bob Barr)
Do you know what’s probably that most dangerous of allowing a student to use a gun? Well in my opinion I believe that the most dangerous part for a student to be holding a gun is that there is a chance that suicide and crimes might increase.Students that are diagnosed with depression are most likely to commit suicide. For a student that has a severe depression and owns a gun or carries a gun with them all the time, it’s just very dangerous. There isn’t enough security to be watching every student, so a student has a bigger chance to commit suicide during college hours. Also, it’s most likely for student to commit a tragedy because they might be alone most of the day. For a student that has gone through so much in their life and feel alone, they might not even think twice of pulling the trigger.
In conclusion if a student is going to allow a student to have a gun during school hours then It is important to consider all the consequences a gun holder might cause.The thing here is that the gun is not the problem, it’s the person that holding it, they are the one’s that are the problem. By allowing a student to carry a gun on college technically they are asking for a bloody season and some are so close minded that don’t even think about it twice. Guns should be prohibited for college students or for anyone else who considers themselves appropriate to just hold a gun around. A gun is not a toy for a person to be carrying it around like if it wasn’t a big deal, for those who believe it’s not a big deal well i’m going to disagree with you on that because it is and a big one. Guns are used only by professionals, who are using it for a good cause and honestly not even the professions should use it because it only causes harm and death. “We don’t let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns?” ( Joseph Stalin )
