EXCERPT:

SKINNER: I would ask them, if kids aren’t even allowed to have their first — like, if they’re not able to purchase their first drink of alcohol, then how are we allowed to buy guns at the age of 18 or 19? I feel like that’s something that we shouldn’t be able to do. And I feel like they need to create some more, like, better gun laws because obviously whatever we have going on, it’s not working. And I feel like our legislators and leaders, they shouldn’t be offering prayers and words because those mean nothing. We need action because action is going to change what’s happening."
