    The Facts

    • He wasn't a student at the school but police said he was the intended target.

    The Spin

    Right narrative

    This tragic event is the latest in a surge in crime plaguing schools across the nation, and is a direct result of the left's woke and misguided idea to 'defund the police' and cut the SRO program. Police officers provide safety, and the program must be reinstated.

    Left narrative

    Shootings in and near schools have become common in the US because firearms are too easily accessible. America needs to reform its gun laws in order to limit access to guns and protect Americans.
