For self defense! Duh! If someone goes crazy and decides to shoot up a place they will pick a location with a lot of people, such as a school. In that case this kid is armed and ready to protect himself AND other students around him! He's equipped to fight back if need be.
An armed student, no mater what their intentions, would not make me feel safer in that environment. Just having a gun in the room increases the risk of someone being hurt or killed without any other outside threat. And just knowing that you have a gun will make you more likely to escalate any dangerous situation than to de-escalate. If people feel unsafe, it's better to hire more security than it is to allow people to bring their own weapons designed to kill people. At least that way, you have trained people handling the guns instead of someone who may or may not know what they are doing.
Having a security uniform on doesn't mean they know proper weapon safety or fundamentals. And having a firearm doesn't mean you will escalate the situation. That depends on a person's mentality. Anyone who is willing to escalate a situation to using deadly force over a simple argument shouldn't have a firearm to begin with and if they do it puts responsible firearm owners in a bad light. Just like drivers with road rage. A car can kill if used irresponsibly too.
Yes and to drive a car you have to take a class and pass a test. And you have that right taken away if you are reckless or hurt someone. In the US at least it's very easy for anyone to get a gun, trained or not. An individual security guard might be reckless, too, sure. But at least you know he or she has training.
I don't care if people want to own guns to protect themselves, but when you bring other people into it, like students in a class room, yes I want the weapons that kill people handled by someone trained to use them. There are other ways to to defend yourself in public that don't involve potentially killing someone.
Yeah and he/she has probably been carrying that gun all year long every day in class and nothing bad has happened has it?
