Regina teen living in U.S. participates in school walkout over gun violence
McKenna Peterson, who lives in Arizona, says the Florida shooting makes her feel uneasy at school
A Regina teenager walked out of her Phoenix, Ariz., school Friday along with hundreds of other students to protest gun violence.
McKenna Peterson, 15, goes to school in Phoenix, Ariz. She is originally from Regina.
"I think it's a little bit extensive but it does make me feel safe — to a point," Peterson said of the school's security.
Peterson said she never really felt uneasy or worried about her safety until the Florida shooting.
"I don't agree with the gun laws right now," she said. "I don't feel safe whenever I see a gun, like in the grocery store or out on the street."
Peterson said when she lived in Regina, she never saw a gun in public.
