    To see how students across the country really felt about school shootings, we put out an open request for students to send us their thoughts. Here are some of their responses.

    Gun violence, particularly school shootings, ranks among the most contentious issues in America. Since the February 14, 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, mass shootings have again become a staple of the news cycle.

    This school shooting is distinguished from previous ones, because students around the nation have rallied to organize for safer schools. Whether that means stricter gun control, metal detectors, regulating ammunition sales, or arming teachers, remains unclear.

    For more insights, take a look at the national polling of young Americans on gun control: http://bit.ly/2G68EHd

    The polling indicates that while young Americans are divided on gun restriction measures, many are decidedly not fans of the NRA.

    OMG!!! I’m 39 years old in my time there was never ever school shootings and there were a lot less gun laws. 100% of school shootings in mass shootings are caused by white Caucasian. Hold parents responsible.

    The U.S has fallen so far. And now students don't even feel safe at SCHOOL. That shouldn't feel good. U.S government? Where are you? Students are dying. Step up.

    I remember our school had an active shooter drill and they wanted to make it as real as possible so they used blanks and lets after more than a few kids started crying and having panic attacks they didn’t do that again.

    If you can't stop bullying you don't have a right to stop the victims of bullying striking back

    We can't just simply take guns away, no matter how strict it is, criminals will still get their hands on guns, look at illegal drugs.
