What we saw in Parkland was a fire alarm going off, and that caused chaos," New York State Senator David Carlucci said at a news conference Wednesday. "We need to keep it orderly and silent and make sure the first responders can respond as quick as possible."

"We need to provide our schools with the security funding that they need," Carlucci said, "and we believe this is the first step forward in making sure our students, our teachers are protected and safe in the place where they learn."
