This is a short story I wrote about gun control, and a hypothetical situation in which a school finds itself supporting the idea of arming a student. It came about as a result of an interview I heard with survivors of a school shooting, in which one students said, "We have like a new normal now."

The illustration comes courtesy of Don Barkhouse III, an illustrator based in Osaka. I thought his black and white ink-on-paper style would be a good match for a story like this one. You can find more of him here: https://www.instagram.com/db3.ink.on.paper/
