The Shield Weighing in on Guns

Directed by Andy Evans, The  journalism workshop of Westmont High, in Silicon Valley, California, is publishing, ” The Shield”,  a monthly Newspaper.  So far they are learning the craft with the tools of  the traditional press, and soon will be ready to shift and produce a digital version of their work.Today gun control is in the news, and in Capitol Hill. We heard about it from the President, the NRA, the parents of the victims, and groups like Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. We rarely hear from our kids on this topic. Yet Sandy Hook Elementary became the talk of the campus as soon as it happened, and shock waves are still rippling in their minds. Here they are sharing some of their  thoughts.
