If you were the President, what action would you take to stop school shootings?
“There should be stricter background checks and taking away automatic rifles. It works in Australia, it can work here.”
“There should be a limit on clip sizes and a ban on assault rifles for civilians. I understand people want something for protection, but a little .38 caliber works.”
“I heard that Trump wants to arm teachers–I think teachers having guns would put students in danger. There should be a mental health check once a year to help find people with lots of stress.”
“I would prevent all gun sales, we don’t sell guns in my country (Mongolia). We don’t need those weapons in this century–living in communities we can solve our issues by sharing our thoughts and talking.”
“Bullying is the cause of school shootings. The schools should have more counseling and support groups to reach more at-risk students.”
