Laura Dern has said her daughter and friends are proposing a mass strike at her school following the mass shooting in Uvalde last month.
On May 24, 19 children and two teachers were killed after a teenage gunman went on a rampage at Robb Elementary School in Texas.
Jurassic World Dominion Star Dern has since revealed that her daughter Jaya, 17 – who she shares with musician ex-husband Ben Harper along with a son, Ellery, 20 – has proposed a strike in protest of gun laws.
“What if we just said, ‘Kids in America don’t go to school because schools aren’t safe until you change gun laws in this country?'” Dern said The guard.
She added, “There has never been a world where a Democrat or a liberal-minded politician or a caring conservative parent has said, ‘We’re going to take everyone’s guns down.’ So they made up a story. The narration is, “They will take our guns!”
“And it’s nurtured American culture over the years. And now we have weekly mass shootings.”
She continued, “No boy with a mental history — no human being — should ever be able to walk into a store and legally buy an AR-15 and 300 rounds of ammo.”
Gunman Salvador Ramos, 18, had loaded a 30-round magazine into the AR-15-style assault rifle he used during the massacre.
He had an additional six magazines loaded in a tactical vest he was wearing, as well as 15 other loaded magazines in a backpack later discovered by police.
Dern is not calling for a ban on all guns. She said: “You can have a hunting rifle and you can have guns to protect your family or whatever, but there are still profound ways that we can effect change so semi-automatic and automatic guns and no background checks aren’t part of ours country are. ”
