With luck, some kid'll take it to their parent and it'll influence them.

Hmm, that's a good idea, I'll see what I can re-write before the deadline next week. Thanks.
Maybe as a letter to the editor? Your position as head of the school paper might give you extra weight.

Maybe you can do a story on what measures your school has in place for such scenarios? (Assuming such measures exist.) As minors, you can't buy guns, you don't vote, or even pay taxes, but you do have the most to lose. Maybe politicians wouldn't suggested such half-assed, knee-jerk measures if it were THEIR lives on the line.
