Nowadays, shootings in schools is considered to be a very serious problem, and people want to find a solution that can help to solve it. One of the possible variants that a lot of people started to support after the Valentine’s Day shooting is to arm teachers.

Many school districts have already provided their educators with special trainings and possibilities to have guns; more and more schools are thinking about this as the most helpful action to prevent shootings (especially after the latest mass shooting that happened in  Parkland, Florida a month ago). President Trump amplified calls to train and arm teachers at schools. However, there are people who do not support the idea of armed teachers and think that if they have access to the guns, it will  make the situation even worse and will not result in a good outcome.

According to the results of the survey that was taken by our students on the newspaper website, more students agree that teachers should be armed; less students are not sure if it is a good idea; students who do not want teachers to have guns are in minority. In my opinion, it is hard to say what can be the best thing schools can do to avoid shootings. However, I think that not all of the teachers should have guns. Maybe there can be certain people who can have access to the guns only after they have all the necessary training and preparation. If shootings continue to be a problem, you can be sure this issue is going to be debated for quite some time to come.
