Stand with students! The time is here for sensible gun control. Please join the students and community in the #MarchForOurLives on March 24 with a rally at Snohomish County Courthouse in Everett.
The national student organizers believe in the Second Amendment and the need to ban assault weapons. There can be no place for military-style weapons on Main Street USA. We certainly don’t want them in the schools!
This a bipartisan issue; it is a people issue; it is a student issue. The system has failed to address the issue in a meaningful way for far too long. Tragically, April 20 will mark the 19th anniversary of the massacre of students at Columbine High School. We have experienced school gun violence in our community, too. Yes, it is more than just an issue of assault weapons; more than just an issue of background checks; more than just an issue of mental health; more than just an issue of minimum age; more than just an issue of loopholes; more than just an issue of societal violence; yes, it is more – but I say let’s start somewhere.
Let’s start now. Let’s start by standing by students on March 14 when local students say #Enough at 10:17 a.m.. Honor and support their events! Let’s stand by students on March 24 at the March for Our Lives Rally in Everett. I know I will be there! As a friend said, “We’ve got their backs!”
To the students of Marysville’s high schools: Thank you for organizing the “Are We Next?” Rally at March 3 in Marysville. You will inspire actions toward solutions. You will inspire those that can change the policies. You will inspire other students. You inspired me.
