Schools can be a lot safer these days. There are too many school shootings that are happening these days. A lot of them can be prevented and yet they are not. People can easily get into schools and shoot. Kids can easily bring guns in their backpack and not even get caught. This has to stop. We need to keep our children safe!

Schools are as safe as they can be without making entry procedure like that of an airport or prison. Most schools have drills where they practice procedure if an armed intruder enters the building. Also, schools are locked with cameras during normal hours so no armed intruders can get in. I don't see any more safety implementations that can be put in place that would be viable considering the sheer amount of students that enter and leave each day.

I am interested in hearing what you think we can implement in schools to make them safer

Con

First of all, at my school, we RARELY practice lock down drills. In fact, one day we even had a real one where a pursuit came into the parking lot and almost ran into the school. These security cameras are rarely monitored by someone. Also, accidents can happen at the office where an intruder could then get in. In my opinion, they need to have a gun up front and then the SRO carrying a gun and that be it.

The best way to prevent more school shooting is armed security gaurds. This way teachers won't have to deal with the stress of being armed and schools having airport security is ridiculous bexause it would only be succesful in very rare cases

Where is your argument? I see nothing but a brief statement. I see you are the (con) person against this topic, but I see no argument.
