This week, in small towns and big cities, from coast to coast and border to border, students walked out of their school building with one common message: enough is enough. Witness our next generation of voters. They’re organized. On the move. Asking the tough questions to legislators and senators and even our president about gun control and school safety and what they’re going to do to return to civility. They’re ready to tackle the hard stuff. And these high school students will be registered voters in 2020, remembering who listened to their pleas, who is looking after them.
Fear has no place in our schools. Our students deserve safety. Are there hurdles? Challenges? Multiple opinions on how to get there? Absolutely. Clear out the lobbyists and the politicians speaking on behalf of the gun manufacturers, and then sit down with those who are left. There we will find common sense gun regulations. These students, soon to be voters, demand action. Now.
