We know the issue; it's time to solve it.
Thoughts and prayers are not enough. On April 20th, 2018, Houston students walked out of schools and marched to demand action nationwide. We believe that after almost two decades with little to no progress, enough is enough. The midterm elections are approaching and we can make it harder for tragedies like those in Columbine, Parkland, and Santa Fe to ever occur again.
We do not advocate for the removal of firearms but merely reforming the process of obtaining one. Reforms such as mandatory waiting periods, raising the age limit, and banning dangerous gun modifications such as bump stocks. We are tired of the drills, the need for preparedness, living in constant fear, wondering if our school is next.
