Tucson’s “March For Our Lives” – End Gun Violence!

Biceps as “guns” from this young person!

Today, many of us took time to rally and send a message across our country that gun violence needs to end. The Tucson, Arizona students did an excellent job organizing this march, having speakers at the end of the march, and being motivated as other youth around our country marching on this same day. As a past teacher and school administrator, I cannot imagine the worry students, parents of any student, teachers and staff at a school may have as they attend school for an education or are at their workplace. The majority of the country’s population is not asking for there to be no guns, but instead to keep the military-style guns out of the general population. Some hecklers along the march did stand on the side yelling they want their guns. Does it need to be a high-powered rifle, no. Does it need to be one with large magazines, no. Are you mentally-fit to possess a gun? Are you old enough to have a gun? We have regulations for so many things, yet not so for gun safety. Others will state there are plenty of regulations; however, the loopholes and availability of military-use weapons is not what the ordinary person truly needs. And besides, as long as there are shootings, then the gun issue needs to be looked at so we have less shootings. People can then go to the theater, school, concert, or church and not have a fear of “Am I next?”. Let your Congress and Senate representatives know how you feel about gun violence…and tell them, “Enough is enough!”

Teachers need to teach!
Choose life!
