School shooter pens letter from prison about gun policy
In 2004, Jon Romano entered Columbia High School in East Greenbush, New York, and fired two rounds from a pump-action shotgun before he was tackled and stopped by his school's assistant principal. No one was killed. In a letter to the Times Union in Albany, Romano praised the Parkland student activism and says he wants to advocate for gun safety and mental health reform upon his release.
What would have happened if Jon Romano had a rapid-firing AR-15 instead of a shotgun when he opened fire at Columia High School? "I think a lot of people would have been dead," the principal who stopped his rampage told @chris_churchill https://t.co/RLadtOqFHX— Times Union (@timesunion) February 22, 2018
