Marjory Stoneman Douglas student and #NeverAgain activist David Hogg told Axios' Mike Allen on Friday that his high school is "like a prison" since the shooting last month, with increased security and safety measures.

Why it matters: What many Republicans have been advocating for is increased security in schools, including arming teachers. Hogg said that his concern with having more resource officers in the school is "racial disparity between the black and white students," and that the solution should instead be common-sense gun laws.
