I am awed by the energy and clear-headed thinking of the students who are leading the campaign for common sense gun legislation. That energy gives me great hope that we have finally reached a tipping point where reasonable laws—banning military-style weapons, raising the age for purchase, and requiring background checks and waiting periods—can be passed. The teachers I’ve talked to are angered at the thought of being armed with guns; instead, we should equip our schools with mental health professionals, nurses, and other resources to provide the best learning environment for our students.
