As a proud endorsee of Moms Demand Action, I believe our Founding Fathers, who drafted the Second Amendment in the day of the musket, would be appalled with how gun rights fanatics are interpreting this constitutional provision. It's time for universal background checks on gun sales in stores, on the internet, individually, and at gun shows. Firearms owners should be required to take gun safety classes, teachers should not be armed, and guns should not be in the hands of the mentally ill and domestic abusers.
Additionally, we need to keep our children safe in school from gun violence. Currently, there is an average of 924 students to one counselor, and because of this, some children are going without the guidance they require. We need to increase the number of school counselors in every building as well as the number of resource officers with extensive firearms training.
