Broward Country Schools Superintendent Rob Runcie reacted to the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Thursday by calling for a conversation on gun control.
At a press conference about the shooting that left 17 dead, Runcie explained that he had been getting calls from students asking for a discussion about "sensible" gun safety laws.
"Now is the time for this country to have a real conversation about sensible gun control," he said. "So our students are asking for that conversation."
"And I hope that we can get it done in this generation," Runcie added. "But if we don't, they will."
