Research Project - Gun Safety

Should Gun Safety be taught in the U.S ?

Gun Safety should be taught in school because kids should know how to act around them and so if they do see a gun they will approach it with cossion.

Backround

Some people think that we shouldn't teach kids about guns because they shouldn't be around them; but if they are they need to know how to approach them. Some parents would feel safe if there kids knew how to act around guns. Kids think that guns is something to play with but if they know better. It would be a lot better if we start teaching them at a young age. Gun Safety needs to be an elective so kids can be educated on guns.

Text Evidence

  • A research study conducted by Cindy Carcamo"Carrington said he was torn about whether gun access laws should be stricter for children. "That's the thing about guns," he said. They will do exactly what the human tells them to do. Poor decision making is what gets us. Federal law prohibits children under 18 from possessing a firearm. However, there is no federal law preventing children's access to guns" That kids should know about guns.
  • A research study conducted by Chris Sacco "Proper gun safety should, if logic prevails, include educating children about the dangers of firearms. They should be made well aware that guns can and will kill them and any individual they point them at. However, such training cannot replace careful parental oversight." The author thinks that kids should know about gun safety so that they know how to act around firearms.
  • A research study conducted by University Wire "Proper gun safety should, if logic prevails, include educating children about the dangers of firearms. They should be made well aware that guns can and will kill them and any individual they point them at." The author says that kids should know that guns kill people so they need to be educated on how to use them .
  • A research study conducted by University Wire "For the sake of America children now and in the future, gun owners and the gun lobby need to either influence and enforces a wide-ranging shift in gun culture,or accept new regulations calling for responsible gun safety around children." We want our kids and our future kids to know more about guns so we can be safe and that they know how to use them properly.
  • A research study conducted by Los Angeles Times "Peer-to-peer educational programs also have the potential to shift social norms on responsible firearms storage." We should be teaching kids how to act around guns so they wont hurt anyone if they do one up.

Couterargument

Some parents think that kids being taught gun safety is bad because they shouldn't be around guns at all. However some parents think they should just in case they come in contact with a gun they know what to do. "Proper gun safety should, if logic prevails, include educating children about the dangers of firearms. They should be made well aware that guns can and will kill them and any individual they point them at."
