Over the past several years, the Department of Education as well all nationwide schools have faced several events of gun violence. Some of these events have included the active shooter massacres at Columbine High School, 1999, Rocori High School in 2003, Campbell County Comprehensive School in 2005, Orange High School 2006, Platte Canyon High School in 2006, West Nickel Mines Amish School in 2006, Virginia Tech 2007, Northern Illinois University, 2007, Chardon High School 20012, Sandy Hook Elementary School 2012, Santa Monica College, 2013, Arapaho High School, 2013, Reynolds High School 2014, Marysville-Pilchuck High School 2014, and at Florida State University Feb 2014. (USA Today, 2014) These are just some of the active shooting events going on around the Nation.
The safety in schools has raised the questions of how to implement better systems to prevent incidents like those reported from happening. One of the issues that these schools faces is not having enough safety precautions in place and not possessing an established protocol to ensure the safety of each school. The protocols that schools should be implementing are things like an active shooter and lock down drills, metal and safety detectors, an assigned Resource Officers on site and mostly parent involvement.
Research questions are very important to guide our research and focus on the relevant information that supports our objectives. For our objective, we have come up with three questions to start out our research. 1) What is the rate of incidences that occur in the U.S. that apply to school safety? 2) What can we do to reduce the amount of shooting in our schools in the U.S.? 3) Will shooter drills play a role in reducing a number of injuries or casualties in a real life situation?
Hypothesis and Variables Considered
Although there has been talking about banning guns, there are too many ways to get a hold of one and in all actuality, they are not going to go away. Our question is now, how can we be protected? How can our children be protected? How can our schools and communities be protected? Going back some years, there weren\'t many instances where one would hear about school shootings. Nowadays, we do not stop hearing of them. School standards have risen so high that it has been causing a great deal of stress on the students and teachers as well. Students feel the pressure of having to succeed, please their parents, deal with being homesick, and everyday life that occurs. Some of these shootings that occur are from students that attend these schools, and they may feel like there is no other way. There needs to be more protection around school zones, communities should work closer together to help one another, there need to be more programs available for people who may be falling into such a depression that they feel like killing others, and there need to be more "laws" or "guidelines" into being able to buy a gun and owning one.
Considering laws and guidelines on buying weapons, ethically should we allow teachers to carry weapons in schools to protect the students? If so, what types of firearms would staff be allowed to carry or not allowed to carry? Would the weapons be his or her personal firearm or school-issued weapon? Would there be inspections conducted to ensure functionality of firearms? With this in mind, we need to ponder ethical considerations prior to preparing schools to allow firearms while preventing and managing situations of lost, misplaced, or stolen firearms.
Allowing teachers to carry weapons creates the impression on the part of the student that he or she is in an unsafe environment and that it is necessary for people to protect him or her with firearms in the school. They should have the feeling that where they are studying and where they are with other children is a safe environment. And by carrying a gun, a teacher gives the wrong impression that it is not.
A growing number of studies show a link between hidden biases and actual behavior. In other words, hidden biases can reveal themselves in action, especially when

Flew the CoopFlew the Coop Flew the Coop On June 6, 1982 I became an adult – not a man, but an adult. That same week I graduated from Santa Barbara High School. I turned eighteen and went down to the DMV and passed my driver license exam and was given my first used car. It was one of those very first Hondas they made, so small; it had a motorcycle engine or a lawn mower motor. I don’t know much about cars but I think someone told me it was a 2-cylinder engine and the car was so tiny that if I hung my arm out

His early years were a little sketchy, but when he realized that his passion for physics and mathematics overpowered everything else, it all seemed to fall into place for him. Einstein was
