Having guns can influence you to shoot it, and want to kill things. Lockers can be checked by the schools because it is school property. The schools should be able to check all lockers so that they know what kind of stuff they have in them. Every year there are less drugs and alcohol in schools, because of locker searches.

There are less school shootings going on in schools that do random locker searches. If your family has a history of drug or alcohol abuse it can lead to you doing then because you someone else doing it and you think that makes it ok. Searching for drugs or alcohol can make the school a better place to be . By searching lockers it will put bad people in jail and get kids expelled or suspended. Having school locker searches will not only allow the school to be safer, but the state too. It will let the students know not to buy drugs and not to keep them on school property.

The lockers belong to the school so you should not keep items in them you don’t want others to see. If there is a kid that is doing drugs it...
