Why are the children of the Florida school not being listened to?
The title question was posted on Quora by Tom Kehoe, a self-described “firearms instructor, martial artist, bonsai-ka and longtime journalist.” Since Kehoe posted an answer to his own question, it appears that he asked it just so that he could answer it.  You can read his answer HERE.
