It is an over reaction.
But, only a few weeks ago, a child about the same age shot himself in the head while at school, who initially intended to shot others.
Now keep in mind that there's been 17 school shooting in only 12 weeks since the year started.
The Parkland shooting has been a very high-profile and well-covered event, spawning many protests, public debates, and a movement of student activism and demonstrations, including speaking lawmakers directly.
There's been NINE school shootings since Parkland.
So while it may be an overreaction, just be mindful the insane circumstances just this year alone---in addition to previous school shootings like Sandy Hook---that lead to this reaction.
