NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Parents of the children at the Covenant School, where three students and three school staff members were fatally shot in March, spoke of the horror they felt watching the Tennessee special session close with no significant gun legislation passed.

“Let me remind you. My daughter was hunted at her school,” Mary Joyce said in an eerily silent room, as journalists watched her contain her tears at a news conference following the ending of the special session on Tuesday.

“She hid from a woman with a high-capacity rifle in her third-grade classroom,” Joyce added. “She now understands what it feels like to be shot at. Since then, every single day she worries if it will be her last because it almost was.”
