Q: How will you keep schools safe from gun violence?

A: I'm sure you had to participate in a drill where you had to run into a closet. In our America, that should never have to happen.

A continued: Conversations take place every night between students and parents about why we have to have active shooter drills. Because Congress want us to believe we have a false choice between guns and gun safety laws. We need background checks and an assault weapons ban.

A continued: I will give the US Congress 100 days to pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they fail to do it, I'll take executive action. Anyone who sells more than five guns a year, they'll have to get a background check.
