Banning guns will not stop criminals from committing crimes. A person who is planning on using a gun to do harm to people or commit a crime will find a way to get a gun.That person doesn’t care about the law because they’re planning to break it anyways. The Second Amendment also legally allows people the right to bear arms. It would be unconstitutional to take that right away.

 

Many people own guns but don’t commit crimes with them. It isn’t the gun that is doing the killing, it is the person behind the gun that has the bad intentions, and if that person is determined to kill they will find the weapon. There should be heavier protection around schools or events to help prevent a shooter from harming people. That being said, teachers should not be able to carry in school because if that teacher uses a gun wrongfully there’s a whole new dangerous situation.

 

Some ways to stop the gun violence would be to have police at schools. If there can’t be an officer, there should be a guard of some sort and maybe more than one depending on the size of the school and the school’s budget. Metal detectors at the entrances of the school would help eliminate guns getting through the doors and prevent deadly attacks in school.
