The Guardian: Ban traumatic ‘shooter drills’ in US schools, urge teachers

“Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (part of Everytown) believes active shooter drills are deflecting from the real issue in America, of easy access to guns. ‘Whenever there’s a mass shooting, the gun lobby argues that schools need to be arming teachers and increasing the number of shooter drills,’ she said. ‘But children are much safer in schools than they are in their homes.’”

Denver Post: McConnell and Gardner could learn some bravery from my dad’s sacrifice at Columbine

“The hero is my dad, a coach and teacher who was shot and killed 7,619 days ago in the massacre at Columbine High School. The bystanders are Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and our own senator, Cory Gardner. I’m thinking of how my dad did not die hiding or cowering in fear. Instead, when he saw the shooters attacking, he ran into the school from the safety of the parking lot. He went straight into the cafeteria and jumped on top of tables, frantically screaming at kids to get out. When the shooters arrived at the cafeteria, no one was there — thanks to my dad.”

Time: The Senate Sits on Commonsense Gun Reform While Americans Die

“I know that when I go to the ballot box, I’ll be thinking of those people who died in the West Texas mass shooting last year, I’ll be thinking of the estimated 38,000 Americans killed by guns while H.R. 8 has sat on Senator McConnell’s desk, and––with them in mind––I’ll be voting for a gun sense majority. Because Senator McConnell might control votes in the Senate, but he does not control American voters.”
