To The Editor:
Thank you for the ongoing tracker on school gun violence (“School Shootings This Year: How Many and Where”). It has been heartbreaking watching gun violence increase in our schools without anything being done. It has shaken me both as a parent and a teacher. I want my children and students to feel safe. It seems like lawmakers have turned a blind eye to the causes: access to guns and lack of mental-health care. I appreciate you taking a step to bring attention to it.
