Last week, a group of Wisconsin students walked out of school in protest against school shootings. Now, no one actually supports school shootings except for, you know, school shooters. Everyone else tends to agree that they’re horrific and that even one such shooting is too many. We all want to address the issue and put an end to them forever.
Not that such a thing is particularly realistic, of course, but it’s a worthy goal nonetheless.
However, the student walkout wasn’t really about the violence.
