Clear Backpacks Are The Solution To School Gun Violence

A change came and it was rejected. Why did you ask for the change in the first place?

So, here lately I've seen a lot of people whining about how clear backpacks infringe on their first amendment rights. They don't. Clear backpacks are a proactive solution in a reactive society. They have been implemented for SEVERAL years in schools all over the country.

My own school system allows them from kindergarten to sixth grade. After that, you get no backpack and your purse, if you choose to carry one, can be no bigger than a sheet of notebook paper.

There have been few if any, complaints about this at my school system, which has been given no reason for such strict rules, so why whine about it now? Everyone still has all of their rights. Everyone can still at least carry their backpack.

I will say what I have said before, we have to do better. Something needed to be done, so schools started implementing clear or no backpacks. Everyone got mad. Don't ask for change and then get mad when a change for the better is brought.

It is better to be proactive than to be reactive. What is proactive? Yes, it is face wash but Webster defines proactive as creating or controlling a situation by causing something to happen rather than responding to it after it has happened.

So, the opposite of reacting. Would we rather be able to see the gun in the backpack? Or wait to create new policies? What about knives in those clear backpacks? Proactivity is the answer to "How do we keep the children safe?"

Children are our future so why do we argue on something that could save their lives? Outlaw guns? Okay. What about the knives that they can sneak in? You can be cut in a lethal place and never know it. Outlaw knives? Poison. Acid. Whatever you decide to outlaw as a reaction, there will always be an answer for it. Look at England. Violent crime is on the rise and they outlawed guns as a reaction.

Stop being reactive. Stop whining about proactivity. When a solution is offered that the majority are okay with, don't be the minority that causes the problem.
