LOWVILLE -- A recent threat of a shooting at 'Lowville Academy and Central School', brought community members together Tuesday to discuss gun control.
The meeting was packed with community members who gathered together to discuss school safety.
Students, teachers, and concerned parents gave their take on the current gun debate and possible solutions.
Parents say they feel like nothing is being done to increase safety for their children.
A local high school student broke down in tears, saying she fears for her life every day at school.
At the meeting, people had different views on solutions for school safety.
"There's definitely fear but I have faith that my kids teachers are going to treat them like their own children or that the superintendent's going to do what she needs to, to make sure that the kids are taken care of," said concerned parent Jane Pinkham.
Community members debated about how they feel schools should move forward protecting children.
Organizers of the meeting say they're hoping to have more community discussions in the future.
