Concealed carry is now law of the land in Illinois. This is the reasoning behind those no guns signs that are now on the school building that bring up the idea of guns in schools. To me, the idea of having weapons in the building is crazy. Seeing weapons throughout the day would make me uneasy. In addition to that, they would be absolutely unecessary. School shootings are not such an epidemic that teachers and security guards should be armed. These tragedies that happen can be stopped in other ways- and the effective way to stop school shootings does not involve more guns. Another reason why having guns in the school building isn’t a good idea is the possibility of accidents happening. More guns around would increase the possibility of someone getting injured.
