My name is Lisa Haver. I am a former teacher, and I lost my son to gun violence. I know firsthand, more guns in more places do not make us safer. That is why I was shocked to learn the State Senate is voting on a proposal to arm our teachers with guns.
As someone who has experience inside the classroom and knows the heartbreak of losing a child — I know this legislation is not the answer. Guns in classrooms is a bad idea for teachers, students, and our communities. It will make us all less safe.
