The amount of school shootings in the United States is outrageously high for just being five months into 2018.

This needs to stop.

The United States knows that we have an issue here and so does the rest of the world. If you head to your Google search engine and ask which country is at the top for most school shootings this year, we have made our way to the top of the list. No country wants to be known for that.  

It’s so hard to pray and hope that no one will come into school one day and hurt us with arms. It’s so hard to see other students on TV crying because their friend was shot that morning. It’s so hard to face the reality that students know that there’s a chance of it happening it at their school. It’s not just the students who feel this way, but it’s also the administration, faculty and staff.

No one said that life would be easy, but it’s hard to make it easy in a world like this.

School is supposed to be a place of safety. It’s our safe haven and place to learn. It’s a daily thing for students, a part of us that we experience every day. It’s a place where the students who don’t get to go home to food get food during the day. It’s a place where if there isn’t heat or air conditioning back at home, they get some of it at school. It’s a place that provides prom dresses in the spring and coat closets in the winter. School is a student’s safe haven, but how can it be known as one when students are scared to go to a place they once thought was safe?

My solution is clear. Take away guns or keep taking away lives. The other side of this argument falls under the fact that yes, guns also are used for protection, and the second amendment gives the right of people to bear arms, but the second amendment also gives people the horrible opportunity to use arms the incorrect way.

Fighting to keep your gun in times of violence, such as the past school shootings, is a right. But fighting violence with violence isn’t going to get us anywhere in the world. Fighting violence with violence isn’t going to lower the United States on the list of the with most school shootings this year. Fighting violence with violence will only make the school shooting situation worse, and that is the last thing the future, students of this country, want.
