He said, “Our hearts are broken for the family of the student who was killed and the students and faculty who were injured. We must all work together to secure that our schools are safe and secure environments for our children to learn and grow.”

On report to the Gun Violence Archive, there were over 600 mass shootings in the country in 2021 alone. This is a staggering number, highlighting the need for urgent action to address the issue of gun violence.
