We reap what we sow. For decades, public policy has allowed, even encouraged, the spread of deadly firearms throughout our society. Adult politicians, for selfish reasons, have been willing participants in and advocates for this policy, and now we have created a social evil that amounts to an all-out assault on public safety and a war on our children and grandchildren.

Some of the outraged students in Florida have expressed what needs to be done to take us out of this nightmare. Time to listen – and act.
