As the country is still reeling over the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Eyewitness News has shared that NYC school safety agents have confiscated 5,931 weapons from students this year. Those weapons include ‘brass knuckles, stun guns, knives, metal pipes— and 24 guns.

Mayor Adams has pleaded with parents to check their children’s bookbags and rooms in an effort to crack down on these weapons being brought to school, but Gregory Floyd of Local 237 said that filling the 2,000 vacant school safety agent positions would also be effective.
