    We can ensure that guns are not on our campus by checking all students in the morning and by having metal detectors. Also we can check all visitors that come in the building and by having police on campus, so no one would like try to shoot up the school and stuff like that.

    I think they or we can use metal detectors and police outside of our schools.

    We should have small metal decetive , so that we can make sure that nobody wont have guns . And we should have a Mad made decetive so that they would know that a student or teacher have a gun .

    We can ensure that guns are not on our campus by using medal detectors and let the administrators look in our book bags and we can lets our parents look in our book bags every morning to make sure we don’t have any guns.

    We can ensure that guns and weapons are not brought in the school by having simper’s at the school door when they arrive, check all bags that are brought into the school building, have the security that works at the school have weapon checks. They also can ensure that by checking all the people that claim that they are in a gang related activity because they might have a weapons on them.

    We can ensure that guns are not on our campus by having metal detectors and check everyone bags and everything else. Have adults standing next to the door outside to see if someone trying to hide something. Have the security come in the classroom and check everyone that was late.

    I think what we should do is to have two metal detectors. So if one metal detector doesn’t check well enough, the other one will. Nowadays, they don’t bother to check us kids, how they suppose to check us.

    How can we ensure that guns are not on our school campus? We can ensure that guns aren’t on our campus by having morning searches and have medal detectors working and ready to go when the teachers, parents, and students arrive to school. By having these things our school will be a safe environment. Instead of worrying that our children aren’t safe in school anymore. So please be careful of what your bring to school.

    We can ensure that guns are not on our school campus because kids don’t have there bags in school or the school have medal detectors and also have security.

    I think that we can assure that guns are not on our campus is by making sure that when they check us in the morning to make sure that they have the metal detectors on and not off. And also for the boys make sure that you check them good because they haven’t been doing a good job so far. And also for the boys pockets, binders and etc. before they enter the gym in the morning. Also it is not just the boys they need to make sure they check the girls before because they have things to. And that is what I think.

      I agree to what you said. I say this because they do need to stand outside and wait because they never know what kids got.

    We can ensure that guns are not allowed on our campus by having daily school checks, stop bringing bags to school, and to alert an adult/ teacher if we know any other person in the building that is carrying a weapon.

    Well, we can ensure that guns are not on campus by having talks and meetings with the children .We could use metal detectors. We can have PTA meetings for the parents to make sure the children don’t get near guns at the house. Making sure drama situations get solved so when a treat is made the problem can get solved. Administrators can check book bags and purses in the morning. We could not bring book bags unless it is clear or meshed. They should make laws if children under the age of 18 get caught or found with a gun should go to jail to teach them a lesson. Children should use their brains to understand, that treat can be make against you and could affect your life. We should not bring phones to get hookups for the guns to get sneaked in the building. We should think wisely because that could be any of our family members or anyone else that we know. We as Elementary, Middle, and high scholars should be punished for saying threats. Students should be punished like an adult if you talk like an adult. Therefore, there is a lot of ways we can ensure that guns are not on school ground.

    We should ensure that guns are not allowed on campus by having meter detectors at all time. People should not sale guns to kids and they also need to check people background in order to get a gun. Administrators should have guns because they can use it for safety for the students. We need clear book bags because the teachers could look in our book bags easy.

    I think we should have see through book bags, and keep the metal detectors on at all times. The reason why is because we have a lot of crime going on in the world. So that is my opinion.

    We can not be ensure that guns are on our property because people who have them is trying to shout people and people will not show that they have guns on them and they will just walk in and start shouting people and people and they will be running up and down the halls ways and everybody need to start watching out for people who have guns and keep kids in side and safe

    Stop the shouting
