From my years spent teaching high school geography & supervising the cafeteria, I know that when , their voices can be powerful. They know that to prevent gun violence, we have to act. Our students are our future. We would be wise to listen to them.

Right now, someone can get kicked out of a bar because they are too young to drink and then go buy a semi-automatic assault rifle made for war. Where is the courage of lawmakers in this country? Why have we been doing more to arm people than protect them?

There have been 18 school shootings since the start of the year. This is not normal. This is not natural. This is not, and can never be, the cost of living in America.

33,000 families a year lose a loved one to gun violence. Now, it’s 17 families in Parkland that grieve, and our hearts ache for them. It’s time to say & do all we can to keep our children safe.

Teenagers are showing what leadership looks like. In times of crisis, strength emerges. We should pass common sense gun control legislation right now to truly honor them - and to save lives.

I stand with Parkland students saying . America is the only developed country where such mass shootings happen so frequently. Congress can – and must – act on bipartisan solutions to prevent more senseless gun deaths.

Moments of silence and hollow thoughts and prayers are not enough to stop the gun epidemic that plagues this nation. Our children and grandchildren are begging us to protect their lives from another school shooting.

Republicans wouldn’t pass a prohibition on bump stocks. They let the Assault Weapons Ban expire. They refuse to move on my gun buyback bill. = We need so students have to cower in their classrooms.
