Joe Cavaretta/TNS/NewscomStudents returned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School this morning sporting new, mandatory transparent backpacks.

Ted Nugent's pro-gun attack of the student survivors of the Parkland, Florida, shooting has taken on new life.

On Lou Dobb's Fox News Business show in March, talk show host Dom Giordano-a former elementary school and high school teacher, according to his website-went after the students and the March for Our Lives demonstration with a tactless choice of words.

"They feel like it is something that would be in a prison", Korsten said. They calculated the $1.05 amount by dividing the total amount of money his campaign received from the NRA by the number of students in the state. There have been multiple incidents at the school since the shooting, including a student making a threat on social media, two students being arrested for bringing knives to school campus as well as the arrest of the shooter's brother, Zachary Cruz, for trespassing on school grounds. "We shouldn't need to worry about our safety and our security while we are at school".

Marjory Stoneman Douglas student Sarah Chadwick, one of the organizers behind the #NeverAgain movement, posted on Twitter Sunday that her school is "starting to feel like a prison". Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in her otherwise captionless tweet.

She also posted a tweet shortly after aimed at U.S. Sen.

'We are doing this in order to demonstrate the fact that we stand together on all issues and that we, as a student body, refuse to be reduced to nothing more than dollars and cents, ' Koerber said.

"Just implement a system that works". The school district is "exploring options" to begin using metal-detecting wands at entrances and potentially permanent metal detectors.

But students have argued that the new bags will not prevent future attacks. A letter from Principal Ty Thompson sent to families on Friday said that step has not been taken yet.

"You have no privacy no matter what", she said.

"I have to say too, Lou, as an educator, there's a couple of these kids that are just rude in the way that they proceed here, as if they are bulletproof, so to speak", he said.

"I definitely feel safer, but in no way is school going to be a place of cognitive education and creativity when it feels like a jail cell", he said.
