Teachers having guns in the class room.
Debate Rounds (3)
To counter warriorcat227's argument that," If ONE teacher would have had a gun in Conn. those kids would have lived to see there next Christmas." If one security guard would have been there in Conn., one security guard who is TRAINED with a gun, those children would have lived. If one teacher or security guard had pepper spray in Conn. those children probably would have survived. Besides, how can you be positive that, If ONE teacher would have had a gun in Conn. those kids would have lived to see there next Christmas? What if the teacher had been shot first, what if the teacher had tried to shoot but their safety lock was on, what if the teacher had tripped when trying to shoot, huh? You just don't know. There are too many variables to take into the case. You didn't witness it hands on, you can't replay it and change various variables. You aren't God. I feel bad about what happened in Conn. too. Maybe a gun would have helped. But maybe pepper spray or a pocket knife (I'm not for pocket knives) would have helped too. Suppose those children had survived though. It would have affected them for life. They could have afterwards been diagnosed with GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) or paranoia. With that in mind say they possessed a gun. They could be so paranoid that someone is trying to kill them. The child (when older) could then hunt someone down. But that's ok, right? It's ok for them to have a gun, especially since their influential teacher's used guns. Not only bad guys have guns. And the good guys should use them whenever they feel endangered ,even if they're not, because the good guys use them. "Our schools should be safe, positive environments, and having guns under teachers' desks or in closets not only sends the wrong message to our children, but puts their lives in danger the minute they enter school grounds, as every child would become a potential victim of a gun accident. We should be teaching our children that gun violence is never a way to settle differences and does not solve problems," Mark Takano said. Guns are not suited for the classroom! Warriorcat227 and I have two more rounds left. I could go on and on, but I'll save it. Ultimately, teachers shouldn't have guns in the classroom. There are a series of events that can go wrong with guns in the classroom, especially with an untrained teacher using a gun. Thank you.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com.... Overall what I think is that teachers shouldn't have guns in the classroom because there are too many things that can go wrong with having a gun, especially in a classroom. Guns are also quite impressionable children. Save them for outside the school. There are just as safe opinions for protecting yourself. As I said in my last vote I wanted to share with everyone a video on excuses since it seems as my opponent has so many on why he can't post his argument and commit to a debate. Here it is: . To conclude, teachers shouldn't haves guns in the classroom. Thank you everyone, this is my second debate and I appreciate all who tune in on the debates I participate in and vote for me.
