Public school teachers marched through downtown Lansing today. They delivered a petition against guns in schools to the state Capitol.
Today is the anniversary of the Columbine school shooting. Earlier, students walked out of their classrooms. In a show of solidary, hundreds of teachers marched to the Capitol dressed in orange – the color for the anti-gun violence movement.
They want stricter gun laws – like tighter background checks. And they don’t want guns in schools – even in teachers’ hands.
