“Despite increased security measures in recent years, U.S. school shootings continue to rise. The tragedy at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary school in 2012, warns us that children of all ages are at risk. As of Feb. 12th, 2014 approximately 44 school shootings have occurred in the United States since that tragic day. Regrettably, 28 lives were senselessly lost by these murderous acts.

Debates continue throughout the nation on the appropriate course of action that will need to be taken to reduce school shootings and related deaths. Our children, who attend pre-school to 12th grade and college, as well as thousands of dedicated teachers, continue to be at risk from these attacks while at school each day.”
