Gun control Activists raise concerns about DeVos

Gun control activists raise concerns about DeVos

SUMMARY: If you are all not aware of who this is, this is Secretary Betsy DeVos is in the current process of receiving criticism of what they refer to as indifferent decisions she has been making. One argued that she does not have a plan that would react to protecting students that may or may not be exposed to the violence of guns. When she was elected in the Senate process her gestures and reactions to not opposing gun violence is what triggered organizations such as the Watts, demand action for gun sense to think otherwise of DeVos. Mothers across the nation are worried that the actions of DeVos has already set a stepping stone for education and gun violence and it is clear to them that she has made an impression that she does not oppose guns in schools. While disagreeing with DeVos they also state that she has no power over changing the status quo on gun control laws and education. She also includes that Gun Free School zones act excludes MOST guns form being in a school. (keyword:MOST) In my opinion I believe that DeVos is using this act as an ally to her choice of not verbally opposing guns in school that had given off a different impression. 

CONNECTION: 
This connects to the concern of education back in the past because of the feeding off the secretaries of education and their timeless desicions that they act on.African Americans in a very simple way , they struggled because of inequality, so going to school was very difficult where as now secretary of education is struggling to deny that she supports the idea of the allowance of guns in schools.

QUESTIONS: 
Do you believe that guns should be allowed in schools? Do you believe that this violates the 2nd amendment.

  1. I believe that guns should not be allowed in schools because minors are not responsible enough and they are not necessary in schools.

  2. I actually think that guns should be allowed in schools; obviously not with students, but if a trustworthy teacher keeps a gun in a very secure place, they can quickly end any school shooting attacks rather than allow the victims to rack up while waiting for police. In response to Francesca, of course students will not be allowed to hold guns, and this is not what conservatives are proposing. While DeVos is an idiot who wants to make education bad for poorer family children, and even worse for those with mental disabilities, this move may be one that will keep our schools safer.

  3. I mean students obviously shouldn't have guns with them only because some don't know the full extent of what could happen with a gun. I'm not sure about that in teachers hands because anything can go down in that situation.

  4. i do think that guns should be allowed in schools but only in the safekeeping of select trustworthy people, like campus security. in incidents such as school shootings or intruders on campus, it would be a good idea to have to protect students an faculty from harm.

    1. I agree because if in any situation it is needed to protect students then we have something to keep us from danger but of course we wouldn't put it to use.

    2. ..unless of course it is necessary, which will most likely and hopefully never happened.

  5. I do not think guns should be allowed in schools at all. There has been too many tragedies where countless children have died as a result of school shootings. I feel that by allowing guns in schools it will normalize the idea of violence and lead to more death and tragedy.

    1. Not having guns means a school is defenseless against a shooter...not that more shootings are going to happen. Israel has teachers keep guns with them, and they have fewer than 8 school deaths a year. And it's not like teachers are gonna go parading around with the guns like "look at this it's a gun you should totally use one!"

  6. Guns should be allowed at school for protection. With guns at school there would be less school shootings because the school would be protected, and the school shooters would be afraid to confront a fire arm. This way students would feel safer in school.

  8. I think guns should not be allowed in schools because majority of the kids don't carry the responsibility there is to have a gun. I think they should have more security or police on the campus to watch over the students. That way schools will be more protected.

  9. I think guns should not be allowed in schools even if the only people who could have them are people of authority. It does not violate the 2nd amendment because the amendment is meant to protect the public community from a corrupt government not a corrupt school.

  11. Unless there is a police officer on campus with a gun, I don't think guns shouldn't be allowed in schools because as minors, we are not responsible enough. Having guns in school could also promote the idea that violence is tolerated.

  12. I believe that guns should not be allowed in schools. Schools are an environment meant for learning, as soon as one gun enters violence and a need for more come in. Where no one gun is present, there is no need for others. Schools are a place where everyone could be equal and should only focus on school and learning.

  13. Guns should not be possessed by students in school. There may be a qualified security faculty that will carry guns for defense, but otherwise there should be no guns. Her toleration of guns in schools does not violate the second amendment, as it protects the rights as individuals to own guns, as determined by a Supreme Court Justice

  14. I believe that guns should not be allowed in schools. Guns can be a form of protection, but it can also be dangerous if handled poorly. It does not violate the 2nd amendment.

  15. Guns absolutely should not be allowed in schools. It's dangerous and would likely result in unnecessary injuries. I personally don't think it violates the second amendment because it has nothing to do with personal property (like the second amendment does).

  16. I don't think high schoolers should be allowed to own guns, even at age 18. I think they should be banned in schools, including faculty, and have an age restriction on owning guns at 25 yrs old. Although faculty may be 25+, the campuses should not permit guns.

  17. The fact that DoVos has no political history or experience is what worries people so much. I personally don't think that guns should be allowed at school. It is extremely dangerous to have guns in schools without the proper precautions.

  18. I believe guns should not be enforced by kids but rather a long existing and a trustable adult, where only one adult knows where the gun is because you cant stop people and other kids from coming to schools and shooting, they can pass a law and stuff about no guns on campus but that wont help much, that works the same how they have a speed limit and its against the law to go faster but people still do, people have their own opinions and it can be dangerous ones so there's only so much you can do, and protecting yourself and others is an option.

  19. I'd like to point out that Aragon already has a gun (or a few) on campus in the form of an on campus police officer. He is here for student safety, and I think that is a huge protective element. Guns aside, he has access to direct police radio that could get our school the help it needed in the event of a shooting or other tragedy. There is no place for a student to have a gun (as I understand it you must be 18 to legally own a firearm) and I don't think this is what the bill is suggesting. Arming teachers/administrators is not without risk. I believe anyone even remotely considered for this should be rigourously screened and have training from law enforcement before getting the right to bring a gun on campus.

    I'd also like to relate this to the Hillsdale bomb threat several years ago. It is my belief that additional officers could have expedited (non-lethally) the capture of the bomber.

    Also, not sure if you guys are aware or have visited your middle schools, but the fences and cameras they are putting up look like juvy (seriously, same fence see for yourself). A section of fence at Abbott middle school actually has barbed wire. I believe in safety, sure, but we have to draw the line somewhere.

    What do you guys think about safety vs. privacy??

  20. I do not believe we should have guns in our schools. That is just unsafe to have around our kids. You don't know what could happen. If someone gets a hold of it that is untrustworthy, that would not lead to something good. We should teach our kids that guns are something that is not okay. There have been so many innocent lives have been lost because of guns. I believe that we should create more gun laws to keep us and our children safe

  21. I believe that guns should not be allowed in school. They are very unsafe for kids and it is also very dangerous. I think we should have more security and or police on campus to watch over all students.

  22. I believe that officers with extensive training should be allowed to carry a firearm in school. If the faculty did not make it a big deal, I do not think it would be normalized. Gun safety is extremely important in America and I definitely believe that we need more restrictions on guns in many ways, but allowing a professionally trained individual to carry a gun will give students a sense of safety on campus. If something were to go wrong and defense was needed, the gun would most definitely come in handy. It is imperative that we keep this.

  23. I dont think guns should be allowed in schools. There is absolutely no reason for there to be guns at school.
