Should We Arm Our Teachers, or Make/Enforce Better Gun Laws?

Over six years of tracking, data has shown that gunfire on school grounds takes many forms and mirrors the problem of gun violence in America. Gunfire on school grounds occurs most often at schools with a high proportion of students of color—disproportionately affecting Black students. Every year, nearly 2,900 children and teens are shot and killed and nearly 15,600 more are shot and injured. An estimated 3 million American children are exposed to shootings per year. Witnessing shootings — whether in their schools, their communities or their homes– can have a devastating impact. Children exposed to violence, crime, and abuse are more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol; suffer from depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder; fail or have difficulties in school; and engage in criminal activity.


What should we do in the face of such a crisis? Should we arm our teachers to defend our students, or should we make and enforce better gun laws to protect those at risk?

Should We Arm Our Teachers

Buddy, are you literally stupid? Why would you want to turn a problem (i.e. crazy teenagers shooting people) into an even bigger problem (i.e. crazy teenagers AND crazy teachers shooting people)?

When people talk about Americans being stupid, THIS IS EXACTLY THE SORT OF THING THEY ARE REFERRING TO.

There you go automatically and falsely assuming things again. I never said what side I was on so I don't see how you have any reason to call me stupid. If you want to participate in this debate, don't call someone stupid especially if they have not chosen a side yet.

That isn't an assumption; it's a fact. If you arm teachers then some of them are going to shoot people. Would you give someone a toaster and then expect them not to make toast with it?

That makes absolutely no difference because your question itself is ridiculous. It's like asking people if global warming is real. You'd have to be an idiot to even ask that question because all the science is one directional. The same applies here, only it isn't science but reason which you are taking a giant dump on.
