It’s a phrase that’s been meme’d to death at this point, but it certainly holds true: millennials truly are the first generation in American history to protest for less rights, rather than more.

In addition to anti-Second Amendment legislation gaining steam in state legislatures around the country, schools are finding other inventive ways to ensure their own student aren’t a threat to others.
