Amnesty International USA Responds to Shooting at Santa Fe High School

WASHINGTON - The following statement can be attributed to Victoria Coy, end gun violence campaign manager at Amnesty International USA:

“Once again, we are devastated to hear of another school shooting. Our thoughts are with the victims and families of this attack. When teenagers cannot live their lives without fear of being shot to death, this constitutes a human rights crisis. Quite simply, kids should be able to feel safe at school.

“Policymakers must take action to make sure school shootings don’t happen before even more students are forced to run for their lives. We demand reform of federal, state and local laws to ensure everyone’s safety and security. We cannot wait any longer.”
