Jackson shared his message to the students on Thursday.
"They sense the dangers, they must tell somebody," Jackson said. "For example, if they knew there was a gun in somebody's car, in the locker, the gun's not there to shoot rabbits. Shoot other people when they get angry."
His remarks come after the CDC released a report saying more children have been the victims of gun violence in Chicago this year than have died from COVID-19 across the entire United States.
