A student at Putnam City West High School, Carissa Corcoran, 18, of Oklahoma City, came to the rally with her girlfriend and her girlfriend’s sister in an effort to have their voices heard. ... While she said she didn’t know anyone who had been a victim of gun violence, Corcoran said the threat is very real, especially since there have been multiple instances of people bringing guns to school in the Putnam City School District this year.
“We go on lockdown often. It can happen anywhere to anyone,” she said. When asked how she felt about those who call for teachers to be armed in schools in an effort to prevent shootings, she said it was a bad idea. “If you knew some of the teachers at my school, you would not feel safe with them carrying guns around,” she said.
