Around 1968 there was a shooting at Kent State University which so outraged the students of the US that general strikes and boycotts were organized at most of the US Universities. The politicians at the time took notice at the unity and size of the event to correct the situation.
The recent shooting in Florida might need to have a similar mass demonstration of feelings to get action to change. As your campus has suffered such a shooting, it might be a lightning rod for such focus. Can the student body president of UVA consider to be in contact with other University student bodies around the country to float the idea of a general strike to get schools of all levels to be protected from gun violence. The politicians have to take notice. I led NYU then. Now its your turn to express your voice. Regards Richard Hartman
