Does anyone actually think clear backpacks are a solution to school shootings?

After 17 people were killed within its walls during a shooting on Feb. 14, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is implementing some new safety measures. Some of the changes that have been proposed include the use of metal detector wands as students enter the school, ID badges for staff and students, and a single point of entry for the school.

But now that the kids there are back from spring break, they’re trolling the “safety measure” that just got implemented: They’re now required to use clear backpacks at school.

Never mind that this would have had absolutely zero effect on Nikolas Cruz, who wasn’t even a student at the time he stormed the school with an AR-15 rifle that wouldn’t have fit in a backpack anyway. While the solution to saving our kids from being gunned down in their classroom desks is shockingly, demonstrably clear, this is what the powers that be are placating them with while they continue to avoid making real change to gun laws.

Except the kids aren’t being placated. LOL at anyone who has seen them organize and fight back and thought they’d take this joke of a safety measure seriously.
