Obama-Era Education Secretary Suggests Keeping Kids Out Of School Until Gun Laws Are Changed
Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan took to Twitter on Friday after the tragic mass shooting that took place at Santa Fe high school in Texas to suggest that we keep children away from schools until U.S gun laws are changed.
“This is brilliant and tragically necessary. What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe? My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?”
This is brilliant, and tragically necessary.
What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?
My family is all in if we can do this at scale.
Parents, will you please join us? https://t.co/Yo4wsFuJI5

Duncan’s tweet came after two different school shootings took place on Friday. One of them took place in Texas, where 10 people were shot to death while 10 others were left injured. The other shooting took place during a graduation ceremony at a Georgia high school where one person was killed while another one was left injured.
School shootings continue to happen in America and nothing seems to be done. All Republicans have offered is “thoughts and prayers.” But then they turn around and slam anyone who suggests tougher gun laws.
Republicans have also received criticism for their lack of action and Democrats and gun-control activists are calling on people to vote out Republicans who oppose gun control measures in November’s midterm elections.
