In the wake of Wednesday’s Capitol riots NBC News ran a column suggesting many people hope that the riotous onslaught taught Congress how school shootings feel.
NBC News pulled together various tweets, one in which an individual wrote, “Now Senators know what it’s like for kids who experience school shootings.”
Another Twitter user, Boise School District Trustee. expressed hope that “lawmakers remember the fear they felt today as they cowered under their desks and locked themselves in their offices when the next school shooting occurs.”
Dr. Abbie Guttenberg Youkilis, aunt of Parkland shooting victim Jamie Guttenberg, wrote, “Seeing fearful members of Congress barricaded in their offices is reminiscent of what happens during a school shooting. I hope they remember the terror they felt next time they have a chance to support gun safety.”
