Students are genuinely
afraid of mass shootings

In reading the article “Teacher defends student’s failing grade on quiz after walkout” (March 19) my thoughts were that teacher David Kissner should be the one receiving the failing grade.

Students are genuinely afraid of mass shootings. Teachers and administrators taking punitive actions against students send this message: Guns are more important than the lives of students.

Mass shootings are not “the price of freedom” as conservative pundit Bill O’Reilly once said. All other developed countries have strict gun laws and enjoy greater freedoms than we do as they do not worry about being shot when going to schools, churches, concerts, etc. We need to learn from them.
