4/19/21- Blog Post #9-- Recently, there have been several mass shootings across America, what can we do about this?
4/19/2021 05:23:52 am
What we can do about this is to inform other people. We should also research about the situation to be more informed. If we inform more people about this situation then they will know. When people know of certain things they will also be prepared for the situation. If we prepare there might be less mass shootings across America. We should also check in for our friend's and family's mental health. Bad mental health is one reason for these shootings.
4/19/2021 06:11:14 am
I think that we can have better shooting drills in school. As of now, the shooting drills in school are probably not going to help when there is an actual school shooter. I also think banning guns will help.
4/19/2021 06:16:15 am
The best thing to stop mass shootings is learning. We need to inform people why this is happening and help people understand the situation.
4/19/2021 06:18:04 am
I believe that in order to decrease the amount of mass shootings across America, we should inform people about the consequences that follow when they commit this type of criminal action. A lot of these mass shootings occur out of hatred against a particular race/ethnic group. If we can educate people to understand how traumatizing this situation can be, then maybe we could live more peacefully as a nation in unity, freedom, and justice for all.
4/19/2021 06:28:10 am
I think the best thing to do about this situation is to educate people about the topic and spread awareness so people can be prepared in case there is a mass shooting close to where they are. Moreover, I think we need to check up on family and friend's mental health since people could be very stressed and worried in this situation, which may lead to panic.
4/19/2021 06:30:15 am
Nothing...we can do nothing about these mass shooting or just shooting in general because no matter what, there will be someone with a gun and shoot it at someone for money or whatever they do it for. But I will say maybe the law of US citizens having the right to bear arm (own a gun) has something to do with the fact that shooting happens often.
4/19/2021 06:30:20 am
There's not a lot we can do, they know the consequences of doing these mass shootings and crimes, the best we can do is probably sit and wait, and hope nothing really bad happens to the people around us, and that these shootings would die down, maybe america could make stricter gun laws, but I doubt that would happen
4/19/2021 06:30:54 am
We can learn about this and find out why some people are doing this. And the people are doing this should go to jail so they would not be able to do this again so this would happen less often.
4/19/2021 06:34:32 am
I think what we can do about this is limit the amount of guns in the states where the shootings are happening. They won't be able to shoot without guns or at least be as dangerous without guns. However, based on other student's comments It seems like educating other people about the shootings is also seems to be a good idea. I don't think it would really help right now but it would probably be a lot more effective than banning guns in specific states in the long run.
4/19/2021 06:44:14 am
I do not think there is much we can do to stop mass shooting. Yes you can check on peoples mental health especially today with all that is happening, but it won't stop mass shootings. You can put the shooter in jail but most shooters kill themsleves after the mass shooting, We can get stricter gun laws, but if someone wants to get a gun they will. So in my opinion I don't think there is much we can do to stop mass shootings.
4/19/2021 06:52:55 am
I think we can spread more awareness to people, especially children, In addition have more precautions. For instance, having more strict police watches over places where mass shootings have occurred or might occur and keeping up with the news to make sure where you are is safe and to be better educated with what's going on.
4/19/2021 06:55:37 am
We should find out why they are doing this and what they want. Then we can give them some sort of punishment and send out a message to the other people who do this.
4/19/2021 06:56:09 am
I think peoples should be educated about this.
4/19/2021 07:13:42 am
I think what we can do is to be safe, and stay away from the shooting locations.
4/19/2021 07:17:43 am
I think that the best course of action is to stay safe is to stay inside. Another good way would be to try and find the motive behind the shootings or make sure to have the police keeping watch in the areas with a higher chance for there to be a mass shooting.
4/19/2021 07:20:08 am
I think that we could spread awareness so that people could know to be cautious of their surroundings and stay away from places that shootings have occurred
4/19/2021 07:38:38 am
I think there isn't much we can really do to prevent it in a way. All we can do to keep everyone safe is spread awareness and have everyone that does goes out to be prepared incase something does happen.
4/19/2021 07:47:57 am
I don't feel much can be done because the only thing I'd say to do is to tighten up gun laws but many people don't want to do that.
4/19/2021 08:07:27 am
I think making gun laws more strict so that only people that actually need them can have them would decrease the amount of shootings but there will always be shootings and I don't think there is anything else we can do.
4/19/2021 08:33:52 am
It's quite have guns at home for protection and a lot of people that live normal lives can do anything from even if their background is clean. We have to keep the mental state of the people here on track. I think the only thing we can do is avoid crowded area but that can't be help when people have to work. Everyone is under a lot of stress from the pandemic but homicides aren't the solution.

I think what we could do is stay safe with our families.
4/19/2021 08:48:56 am
I think that the most we can do is to protect those who are close to you and spread the message to stay safe because we can’t really prevent people to get guns. I think that spreading the word across communities and keeping an eye out for your neighborhoods is important for the safety of everyone. Also keep up with the news.
4/19/2021 08:54:31 am
In order to stop gun violence, I think that we should help others who seem like they are not themselves. The pandemic has created this dark cloud and has affected many people's mental health. In addition, the US government should make gun laws more strict. However, by making gun laws more strict, this could endanger the lives of families because they do not have firearms to protect themselves. Also, those who own firearms would protest that they should not make gun laws more strict.
4/19/2021 08:54:41 am
What we can do is spread awareness on why this is happening, like any driving factors to lead someone to do such a thing. Moreover, we can educate people on how to handle a situation like that as safely as possible so perhaps less people will have to be wounded/killed. Furthermore, we can also restrict gun accessibility and show the consequences that'll happen if someone decides to go on a mass shooting.
4/19/2021 08:57:27 am
I think upgrading security around places with more people (like schools or other public areas). I also think that laws on bearing arms should be more strict, and only limiting them to those that actually need them. Spreading awareness and staying safe in general is also very important.
4/19/2021 09:09:08 am
We can help educate people the dangers of gun violence, have more police in certain areas, create a harder way to access a gun, and we can help people who are feeling down. As in their mental state.
4/19/2021 09:09:28 am
We can pass bills to tighten gun control laws and limit them so only law enforcement can get access to them.
4/19/2021 09:09:58 am
I think we should just try to stay safe and protect one another and avoid areas that would most likely have trouble. There isn't really something we can do to stop the mass shooting because there is always that one person who would rebel and think the opposite. Maybe making the gun law more strict and have severe punishment if shooting does happen. Extra security.
4/19/2021 09:11:08 am
There’s not much we can do but the best thing is to educate people on the topic, be prepared if a mass shooting happens, and try to stay away from large areas where shootings can happen.
4/19/2021 10:19:22 am
I think limit the time outside. Also stay in area where there are more people. To also spread awareness about how mass shootings are not okay.
4/19/2021 10:26:19 am
i think the least we can do is keep the people around us safe and notified about the situation.
4/19/2021 10:33:28 am
I think that people should stay inside more often and be with a group of people they know like family members or friends. We should also spread messages to tell other people about whats happening and to stay safe or avoid going to a certain area where there are people with guns.
4/19/2021 10:42:35 am
I think there isn't much you can do other than being informed and know what the situation is and how to aviod these these and maybe all and all just stay home.
4/19/2021 10:49:04 am
To prevent mass shootings, I think the police force will have to be more spread out, so any suspicious activity can be stopped quickly. In addition, shootings can be prevented if people had self-defense items, such as pepper spray.
4/19/2021 11:51:09 am
We need gun laws. People are just walking around with guns and this is happening if guns weren't allowed shootings wouldn't happen as often so we need restrictive gun laws. No Guns.

I think we should spread the awareness and try to stay away from the shooting. If possible, try to limit the number of guns sold or try to increase the price of the guns so that less people is able to buy it.
4/19/2021 01:31:12 pm
I think we need stricter gun laws. I don't think anyone should be allowed to buy a gun. I also think there should be more security guards at schools to spread awareness of an active shooter and protect as many kids as possible. In addition, I think that lockdown drills should be changed. Often when they is a school shooting, the shooter is a student. That means that the shooter was in the classroom with us while we practiced the drill.
4/19/2021 02:57:48 pm
We need to find ways for guns to not fall into the hands of people with malicious intent; gun control is a serious issue at the moment in America. Not only is gun control too loose here, these times make many prone to mental health concerns. I believe what fuels many of these shootings are hate and sadness.
4/19/2021 05:43:11 pm
I think the best way we can help is to stay informed and tell others you know about what is going on. Research situations or the mass shootings you see of online to get a better idea but other than that there isn't much we can do to help.
4/19/2021 06:43:47 pm
I thing what we can do is controlling guns and educate peoples when they are in elementary school and also controlling those shooter games and movies.
4/19/2021 07:13:14 pm
i think we should stay away from the locations that there are shootings at. we need gun laws, no one should be walking around with a gun unless your a cop.
4/20/2021 05:16:31 am
I think what we can do about this is to spread awareness to the people who don’t know that there are shootings around America because there’s nothing we can do about the shootings that much because they always happened due to getting it from a different place.
4/20/2021 06:06:38 am
I think the first step is for the government to notify people that mass shootings are occurring and that people should be warned. There should be rules and regulations about weapons in public places like stores and e.t.c. Mental health also is a major factor. Things like death threats or any sort of shooting or stabbing threats should be monitored by the local police department. These steps would definitely help lower some of these shootings.
4/20/2021 10:28:01 am
i think that we should the government have control over who has a gun or not to ensure safety of the peoples and have a tighter law enforcement
4/20/2021 04:59:59 pm
I think that people should stay at home and that people who have guns should be confiscated
4/21/2021 05:28:36 am
I think to prevent mass shooting we should spread awareness about it and decrease the amount of guns sold.
4/21/2021 05:57:30 am
The only thing that we can do as of right now is to educate people on why guns are dangerous. We should also do frequent background checks on the people who are purchasing weapons, to ensure that they won't use it for bad. Another thing we can do is to talk about racially charged crime and spread awareness to the groups bein targeted so we can be safe. In the end, mass shooting is really hard to stop but if we educate enough people and spread awareness about the issue, people will start being more careful.
4/21/2021 06:24:41 am
i think we should not allow citzens to own guns that are not pistols
4/21/2021 08:44:15 am
I think that it better for people to get educated and learn how dangerous it could get during a situation like this especially since it happening around America. I think it would also be very helpful to warned people and let them know.
4/21/2021 10:17:28 am
make guns harder to own like you have to check up every month to make sure no one has any mental prolbem
4/21/2021 10:17:53 am
To stop mass shooting, we need to educate people to not use guns and why they are dangerous.

I think that they should shut down gun shops so people arent allowed to get guns anymore, yea guns are for hunting, police, and keeping your family safe. But that doesnt mean having a gun means to just shoot for fun, This needs to stop
4/21/2021 10:23:28 am
Restrict gun use for example if you are gonna get a gun you have to be trained with it for about 6 months before getting the gun. This will reduce the amount of shootings. Another solution is to talk about the importance of the gun not just simpily saying why is dangerous. Talk about how guns could cause violence and how it would be used properly to defend yourself. Another reason is to talk about major figures involved with the gun to give a better understanding for those who might wanna get a gun.

To stop mass shooting, we need to educate people to not use guns and why they are dangerous.
4/21/2021 10:28:15 am
We must include a assesment required to test your mental health before you purchase a firearm, this is important as the assesment will detect potential mass shooters and keep them from getting their hands on a firearm.
4/21/2021 01:49:35 pm
I think that people should have better security and protect their families in light of the mass shootings going around. It's a hard time for everyone.
4/22/2021 05:40:54 am
The best thing that we can do is inform people that is happening so that everyone can try their best to stay as safe as possible.I think that we also need to educate people on why this is wrong and it shouldn't happen.I also think that we need to have stricter gun laws.
4/22/2021 05:58:14 am
I think what we can do is keep our windows and doors locked and try to stay safe while the government can put more police power into those places.
4/22/2021 07:11:44 am
I think that people should just try and by safe
4/22/2021 07:59:41 am
I think that this is not safe because people are trying to survive and want to stay safe live as long as they can and provide for anyone that they care about. This has been an ongoing situation and America and many solutions have been provided however, people will always find loopholes and ways to get anything they want.
4/22/2021 08:54:25 am
In my eyes, the most safest way, is to spread word about a lock down, So less shootings will happen, furthermore Police Officers should take a huge action into this and investigate the entire area.
4/22/2021 10:01:04 am
Some great ideas our students have around this topic. It is so nice to see students sharing their ideas and opinions.
4/22/2021 11:30:35 am
As is, for practically any social issue, there is no way to completely "solve" this problem. The only thing we can do, is to minimize such things from occurring as much as we can. The most effective way of doing this, is educating and spreading this information to others; and why it is so horrendous. Teaching and practicing gun safety is also an option, as well as making sure there is mental support to those who feel they may have such an tendency. Making sure all buildings, especially schools, have safety precautions against this, and to keep new technology that may aid in the prevention of mass shootings up to date.
4/22/2021 12:04:59 pm
There is not a lot of thing we can do about this. I think the best thing you can do is to stay at home and go out when ever you need while the government will take care of this. Another thing you can do is maybe try to learn some karate to protest yourself.
4/22/2021 02:22:01 pm
i think people should be careful and be nice to people
4/22/2021 03:33:49 pm
I think that their should be stricter gun control laws to make sure that the wrong people like racists or people with criminal histories shouldn't be able to get guns and be able to hurt people.
4/22/2021 05:12:50 pm
We can spread awareness to the public so that they keep themselves and their families safe. There should be laws to restrict firearms uses and provide education about gun safety.
4/23/2021 06:01:20 am
share what is going around the world , maybe others can help
4/23/2021 07:55:01 am
To stop guns being bought. Since shootings happen with guns so if guns are stopped being produced to the public, it can somewhat stop the shootings.
4/23/2021 09:02:10 am
I think we should have better security and be cautious outdoors.
4/23/2021 10:30:01 am
I think that we can avoid shootings by staying close to friends and family and keep them awake and healthy. If everyone can do their part,we can stop these terrible shootings. And also people should be careful and be nice to people
4/23/2021 11:18:52 am
I think the best way to act is to stay indoors to ensure your own safety. Try not to appear in crowded places as much as possible. And try to find out the motive of the shooting.
4/23/2021 11:52:15 am
I think people should try to stay indoors and try to be cautious when going outside.
4/23/2021 12:21:07 pm
I think to stop mass shootings, we need to educate other people about guns and stay safe when going outdoors
4/23/2021 08:10:36 pm
We could enforce more restrictions on guns to prevent further shootings.
5/20/2021 10:40:14 am
I think it's best to stay home away from people.
5/21/2021 10:56:59 am
I dont think there is much we can do but stay safe and look out for one another
