Schools are the last place guns should be

To the editor:

If Americans could choose only one place in their lives that guns would be banned, they would choose schools.

Responding to gun violence with more guns does not work. Many studies show that more guns results in more gun violence. There is not one single piece of research that indicates otherwise.

American schoolchildren die from violence at higher rates than children in war zones. Think on that-our schools are more dangerous than war zones.

My family and I are constituents of Bokeelia and we vote. We are well aware that the "conservative" political opinion in this nation favors more guns despite the growing gun violence permeating our society. Nevertheless, we are asking Gov. DeSantis to place our lives before politics and veto the bill arming teachers.
