  • Yes, for the safety of the students and staff.

    Having metal detectors in schools won't stop people like Adam Lanza. However, they will stop random students who are trying to bring a weapon to school. If every student has to pass through hem, it will cut down on weapons violence in our worst schools, and will keep our students and teachers safer.

  • Yes, schools need metal detectors as a safety measure.

    Unfortunately, we live in a world where people no longer think twice about harming others. Metal detectors in schools will save the lives of students and staff. The metal detectors will act as a deterrent to those students, and possibly staff members, who choose to come to the school with a weapon and an intent to harm. Prevention is key. Our children should be able to go to school without the fear of murder and injury.

  • Yes.

    I would love to say no but unfortunately I can not. After the tragedy of last week I think everything possible should be done to protect our children while they are in school. Our education system leaves a lot to be desired as it is, our children should be safe when they are in school and it is our responsibility as a nation to keep them safe.

    Not a Chance Forget the price that doesn't matter. The real issue is that the metal detectors would create a bottle neck in the morning while the kids are entering the building. This bottle neck would be where a kid would surely open fire and the body count would be horrible. Plus if a kid is going to turn a gun on someone it's going to happen. If parents would dicipline their kids from an early age rather than all of this hippie parenting were it's okay to do stupid things when your young we wouldn't have this problem.

  • They lower the rate of school shootings

    Parents may argue that we should not use metal detectors. But then the same parents are complaining that the school isn't safe enough when there child was in a school shooting. But really the only way to prevent this is by using metal detectors. So that is why I say use them

  • Schools need metal detectors

    If a school doesn't have a metal detector then a gunman could very easily get in undetected and kill many people. I realize that if there was a gunman he could just start shooting before the metal detector however it eliminates the chances of a student from getting into the school and causing a "mass shooting"

  • All Schools Should Have Metal Detectors

    Schools need metal detectors because of all of the deaths that happen every single year just from school shootings. If this is done, Many lives would be saved in the future. This would also keep students from bringing in pocket knives. Metal detectors would be a beneficial factor for school safety.

  • Why metal detectors are needed in schools

    If you are at least 30 years old, Then you probably have children and they mean the world to you, So don't you want to keep them safe in school? There are not many schools that have the money to buy metal detectors, Schools shootings or bombs rarely happen, But if schools had detector it would keep all the kids in the school more safe than what they are right now. ”Unfortunately, We live in a world where people no longer think twice about harming others. “ Should schools have metal detectors? | Debate.

    Metal detectors are important but they will keep schools and kids safer if schools can put them in. I think Metal detectors are needed in schools so that the detectors will tell the school that there's a threat and the school will be put on lock down, And that will get the kids in classrooms and it will have to poiles come to the school and get rid of the threat. “Our school needs metal detectors because they will detect any metal weapons that is dangerous so we don't lose anymore lives in school. ”

No, Not all weapons are made of metal like keyboard, Chromebook, Sport equipment, But if schools have metal detectors that will keep the more deadly weapons out of school, If there is and small weapon in a school it's a very low possibly of someone using it and doing much damage.

    If you have children or grandchildren then you must know how much they mean to you. Don’t you want them a lot safer in schools then your school need metal detectors to keep out all the big dangerous wapens out of school like guns, Boobms, And anythimg meta. If your school doesn't have enough money then the best thing to do is to do is donate a small amount because you should want your kids even more safe in school and your time off from being annoyed from them.

  • Not a Chance

    Forget the price that doesn't matter. The real issue is that the metal detectors would create a bottle neck in the morning while the kids are entering the building. This bottle neck would be where a kid would surely open fire and the body count would be horrible. Plus if a kid is going to turn a gun on someone it's going to happen. If parents would dicipline their kids from an early age rather than all of this hippie parenting were it's okay to do stupid things when your young we wouldn't have this problem.

  • It costs to much.

    Schools around the U.S. have been complaining about not having more money for books and other resources, so buying metal detectors is not a good idea. For one metal detector it can cost $4,000. How would schools be able to afford things they need if they're buying all these metal detectors?

  • It's a Bandaid

    A determined gunman would just start his rampage at the metal detectors. Furthermore, schools are statistically safer for kids than other places, so if we put metal detectors at schools we also need them at churches, hospitals, malls, everywhere basically. This policy is a bandaid that will only result in tired students from having to show up earlier to get in line for the metal detector.

  • It won't work

    Metal detector technologies will not be sufficient because the people who are oprating them may themselves be corrupted. When 9-11 took place the terrorists were still able to get their guns past metal detectors at the airport because the security personnel assisted them. All it takes for an armed crook to enter the school is a security personnel who is the crook's friend or not being attentive to his work.

  • Schools Do Not Need Metal Detectors

    I do not think that schools need metal detectors. Not all schools have weapon problems and it would be ridiculous to implement detectors in schools. The money spent on detectors could go towards other resources for the schools. There are police officers at all schools and its their job to take care of this and they are paid to do so. Metal Detectors in schools are unnecessary.

  • Shrek 2 is a perfect movie.

    Uh uh uh, We can't be staying up late blah de blah blah blah. Whatever. I DO WHAT I WANT! I do what I want, When I want, 'cause I want to it! Kya! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya! You've come to the wrong place. . HA! *Falls asleep*

  • They shouldn't have metal detectors

    Why? They cost way too much! Second of all student will have to wait on a long line, And might become late, Which could interfere with their education. Another thing, What if the machine breaks down? What will happen then? There are so many possibilities to what could happen, And that's why we don't need metal detectors.

  • There are more then one way to get on a school campus

    And not all schools are built the same way so there will always be the problem of someone getting on campus weather you like it or not but doing all that would probably be a waste of money for most schools plus you would probably need about at least 10 armed guards to protect every other way into the school including gates and opened windows on the ground floor there will always be a way all it is a temporary solution

  • Yes but the reward outweighs the cost

    Yes violence could still happen but metal detectors can lower that risk of someone bringing in a weapon. Inner city schools use metal detectors to keep gang members from bringing in weapons, so why not other school? Yes the cost and maintenance would be high but when it comes to the safety of the new generations then we should prioritize that no matter what.

  • Schools shouldn't have metal detectors

    Metal detectors costs too much money and schools should save that money for new classes, renovations, etc. Do you think that a student would want to go to a school with metal detectors in the hall? I don't think so because the noises from those metal detectors might scare younger students.
