.@PiattPatti's son died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

"Watching others lose a child and knowing what they feel brings it all back. I don't have a problem with responsible gun ownership, but there is nothing responsible about owning an AR-15."

"If we want teachers to have to ability to make offensive measures, why not non-lethal weapons? It's terrible that we would have to, but if we do, that route should not be firearms." -@TomPrigg2018

Students across the U.S. are leaving class at 10 a.m. local time to demand Congress act to end gun violence. The walkout will last for 17 minutes—one minute for each victim of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, one month ago today.

I was in a building locked down during a shooting and my mother and I were stalked by a man with a gun. I've also read the research. Guns do not make us safe. They only create the illusion of safety while profiting the NRA and gun manufacturers.

#NationalSchoolWalkout
As an educator, I support our children walking out today. They deserve to be in school, learning in a safe environment. But when so many adults put profits before life, it's time to stop and listen to our children.

#NationalSchoolWalkout #NeverAgain #WednesdayWisdom
If guns made us safer, as folks in the @NRA like to say, America, which owns nearly half of the world's privately owned guns, would have the fewest mass shootings in the world. Instead, we have the most.

FYI: Putin and Russia aren't running the US government, quintessentially American politicians are and always have been, and they are continuing centuries of quintessentially American abuse of the most marginalized people for their own power and profit.
We might call this an... inconvenient truth.
