Guns in America is a topic that has received public scrutiny for many years. Indeed, the United States constitution gives American citizen the right to keep and bear arms. However, this right has been infringed over time. This has prompted law makers to come up with laws and policies that can curb the gun lawbreakers. Indeed, recently after Newtown Connecticut shooting, law makers pointed out that schools should allow teachers to carry gun to class. This has been supported by nearly 60% of the citizens. In addition, the law makers have come up with a bill that will let parents know, which of the teachers is carrying a gun to class.
This bill allows parents to know the teacher permitted to carry a loaded gun to class. With this information, the parents can choose the teacher to instruct their children. This is because if the parent do not like armed teacher to instruct their children they can choose reassign their children to teachers who are not armed with firearms. In addition, the bill allows the parents to consent for their children.
However, the critics have raised the question whether it is okay to let the parents know which of the teachers is carrying a gun to class. This is because; this will infringe on the privacy rights of the teacher. Furthermore, the teachers are permitted to carry the gun, after going through a series of gun control measures. Additionally, they have been trained on how to use the guns.
Therefore, the teacher’s privacy should be protected. This allows them to win confidence of children and to work with them wholeheartedly. Thus, it is not necessary to let the parents know which of the teachers is carrying the gun.
No, I have never used Rogerian method before. However, I will use it in the future, because it is the best way to win audience and convince them to accept my ideas and views.
