Since the beginning of this 2018, we have had a mass shooting every or every other day in this country (and some days, we've had more than one). Last year, we had more mass shootings than we had days of the year. Regardless of your position, I think we can all safely say, "Enough is ENOUGH! And although I realize that you have the right to own (and in some cases carry) a gun, I think it is time to talk about some other rights too.
Let's start with our children. Children have the right to a safe and secure education. Children and teachers alike should NEVER be worried about going to school. Children have the right to not have to walk through metal detector or be hypervigilant in monitoring the behavior of their class members. They have enough on their plates worrying about testing scores, acne, how to navigate relationships, and just learn to be good citizens. Most importantly, CHILDREN have the RIGHT to LIVE!
