Guns Save Lives: Military veterans should be hired for campus security

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

After every school shooting we hear the same conversations being brought up about what could have been done, what didn't get done, and what should be done to stop a event like this from happening again, yet we always end up with the same conclusion, guns are the problem lets ban them.

Today we bring light on new solutions  

We the people call on all members of congress elected by us, to pass legislation that actually brings upon change to the situation and solves the status quo. Our elected officials must act by:

Unemployed military veterans who have had formal training in warfare, should be hired by schools, and armed to protect students from further mass shootings. 

With this solution we would be getting two birds with one stone. We would solve the problem with mass unemployment of veterans and stop school shootings from happening.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 5.3 percent of U.S veterans are currently unemployed. With the hiring of military veterans to protect our schools we could bring that number down drastically. there are already examples of veterans working as security guards. For example, the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (BSIS) has a program called the Veterans Come First Program. This program offers priority services to veteran applicants and assists veterans by leveraging their transferable military experience and training in order to meet all or part of the Bureau's licensing qualifications allowable by law.

According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, "gun free zones" (areas where guns are prohibited) have been the target of more than 98% of all mass shootings. This staggering number is why such designated areas are often referred to as "soft targets," meaning unprotected and vulnerable. School shootings happen because of gun free zones if we where to remove them and place armed military veterans we could drastically decrease school shootings.

We as students and parents no longer want to feel like we are targets for these tragic events. We no longer want to feel defenseless against these attackers we want to protect our children like banks protect money. We the people who have signed this know Guns save lives.
