Fight For Our Lives As Students No More School Shootings
This petition made change with 884 supporters!
Since 2013, there have been nearly 300 school shootings in America — an average of about one a week. As an 11th Grade Student in Carroll County Maryland I have been worried to the point of being scared to walk in to school everyday.
We are student's, we have the right to walk into school everyday expecting to receive our mandatory education in safety and comfort yeah I know I could get homeschooled but that's not the point it's not like homeschool shootings happen, public school shootings happen. I sit in class everyday and flinch if I hear a loud sound/bang worrying whether or not someone's shooting up our school.
This is not acceptable to any extent. It's not like we have a choice to go to school or not, it's not like we have a choice to prevent our lives from being shot up from some deranged mentally Ill being.
Due to education being mandatory we should not only be ensured but guaranteed that our safety is 100% taken care of while being in or around school properties.
If you are a student or a parent you understand the Importance of having some sort of front line defense for these type of situations. If you are a human being you understand the devastating effects of losing ones life that closest to you.
What do I propose well with the issue at hand there is no full-proof answer of a defense system. But what we can do to at least prevent these Ill beings from gaining access to our facilities is have a metal detector, why well this is and could be our first step of a prevention system. They would be stopped before they have the chance to enter.
Another proposal would be to issue defensive training for select school system staff in each School like the administration or hall guards so at least they aren't going blindly to our defense. We should have a Police Officer or State Official in every school. It's like they say you can't bring a knife or a fist to a gun fight you have to fight guns with guns.
We need someone in our schools that is approved to carry a firearm and that is approved to be our first line of defense if that's what it takes to protect our lives, our loved ones, our destiny, our legacy as the future of our wonderful country.
Regardless of what is to be decided upon in regards of this heartbreaking topic there needs to be a full proof system, policy that prevents us from losing the ones we love most. You are a flat out idiot if you believe that just locking the door and hiding in a corner while someone is in the process of invading our schools is enough, we are only sitting there waiting for them to shoot down that door and shoot us down too.
Sign this if you care for your lives as students, sign this if you care about the lives of your kids, do this for us we are victims we are innocent lives that could be no longer. Stand Up Speak Up Make A Change Save Our Lives Please!!!! Share why you signed!!!! Don't allow us to be another statistic of how many losses were caused by school shootings due to lack of a protective policy.
Don't be one of those people that say oh this will never happen to me because it can and it will if we don't take action; A 17-year-old student was shot in the parking lot of a Maryland high school on a Monday of February 2018, this is proof that it's everywhere even in our own state don't just pray for the losses pray for the policy that will prevent losses from happening.
