School shootings have become tragically routine in America, and so have the responses.
Republicans send "thoughts and prayers," insisting that it's "too soon" to talk about gun laws. Conspiracy theorists and conservative media talking heads call the survivors "crisis actors" and try to smear the victims. The conversation moves on to whatever Kardashian is naked on Instagram. And then another shooting happens.
Lawmakers insist that they know what's best for the victims when they reject the conversation about gun reform, but children are no longer accepting the status quo.
I'm gonna try and get a hashtag trending called #IfIdieInASchoolShooting. If you wanna join, feel free. #IfIdieInASchoolShooting I will never be able to finish my animated TV series, I'll never be able to see my sister again, and I will have to become a martyr. #NeverAgain— Andrew Schneidawind (@SoldierSchnyd) May 20, 2018
