doc : Problem /Solution Proposal

Guns Should be Banned in Campuses

The shootings done by a few problematic students in American college campuses that killed several students , faculty members , employees and bystanders showed the rationale against the bringing of guns inside school campuses . Even if the student is enrolled in graduate school he should not be exempted from the ban . I am proposing that no one should be exempted because once there are loopholes in the rules and regulations on the ban a student with personal or family problem can find ways

to provide the reasons why he should be exempted

A high pro recent campus tragedy was the one that involved a Korean-American student . An aftermath was Americans started to discriminate any American of Asian descent which may lead to racist slurs . And this kind of incident may blow up and may lead to stereotyping . Worse schools may soon refuse to accommodate any student of Asian descent based solely of a rare tragic incident

This incident drew some comments about the Korean culture . That Koreans could easily kill others . But suspect , a certain Park , was more American than Korean . His family immigrated to the United States when the suspect , who killed himself after killing others , was just a lad , about four of five years old .

And those students who would insist they should be admitted to campuses with guns stuck on their waistlines should be instead allowed to finish their schooling through distance education - through the Internet , which are now done by many schools , particularly in the graduate level

The banning of guns in campuses could be later used by local legislators to eventually ban the carrying of guns outside homes to reduce shooting incidents and killings made even by teenagers here in America . The American people should now forget that their forefathers tamed America with guns . That era had passed and should not be glorified

Another way to discourage the carrying of guns would be through passing local laws making it harder to get a license for a gun

One requirement for an applicant for a license is that he could show he is of legal age , with college education , with work that needs self-protection , like a company cashier , a traveling salesman or one handling money every day . Another requirement could be membership in a bona fide gun club or practical shooting association that holds regular competitions among members . Still another requirement would be passing a psychological test to determine mental stability and that responsible members of the community , like the local pastor , priest or a lawmaker would testify that the applicant for a gun license is a responsible member of society

Of course the gun dealers would not be happy for...
