High school students, it’s your time.
It’s your time to feel safer in your classrooms. It’s your time to strive to ensure that your younger brothers and sisters will be safer at school. It’s your time to encourage your parents and grandparents to take another look at the kinds of weapons that we have now compared to what was available when the Second Amendment was passed. It’s your time to persuade the National Rifle Association members that we understand that most people have a right to own a gun, just not people who have a history of misbehavior or no training in gun safety.
High school students, if it’s not your time to convince adults that stricter more comprehensive background checks are needed, then when will it be your time? Will it be when your children are sitting in a classroom with a disturbed person in the hallway with a gun?
