Violence begets violence. Children who are a used at home come to school and bully other children. Having guns in schools, among other problems, perpetuates the cycle of violence. As of June 15, 2016, 23 people have already been accidentally shot by toddlers. Having teachers and other personnel who may have varying levels of training and expertise handling a firearm only increases the chances that an accident will occur. What's more, all it takes is one disgruntled teenager who is unhappy with a test score, who knows where their teacher stores their gun, to provide an environment and opportunity for another tragedy to occur. America leads the world in death by firearms, and has the most access to weapons more than any other country in the world. Every time a mass shooting and tragedy occurs, many people respond by buying more firearms and putting more guns on the streets. Yet, these tragedies and shootings keep occurring. The answer isn't more guns. It's less guns with tighter regulations to make it more difficult for those who are at high risk of owning a weapon to obtain them. While a vast majority of gun owners are responsible people, human beings have shown that we can't be trusted with easy access to weapons. We need to take more steps to decrease the amount of guns in the world and take more common sense approaches to regulate the safe distribution and ensure responsible handling and operation of firearms amongst everyday people.
