"We don't need a reminder, but we get it often. That the conversation is still alive," Hinch said.

He also said that he believes there are conversations to be had about school shootings.

"It dosn't matter whether it's at concerts, schools and communities all over the country, we have to continue to try to educate on a lot of topics," Hinch said.
