TAKE A STAND: Florida School Shooting

Ismael LynchFeb 26, 2018

"We have great gun laws here, but there is always room for improvement, and there are always some gun manufacturers that will try to find a loophole in the laws", he said. The Parkland, Florida, shooter posted in a comment on a YouTube that he wanted to "be a professional school shooter".

Indeed, since the day of the shooting, many students of Stoneman Douglas have spoken up unequivocally about the need for more gun control. Nothing happened. That year concluded a decade in which 64 schools experienced shootings and 85 students were killed. "Because their last 10 minutes of school was their last 10 minutes of life".

"After Sandy Hook they said we wouldn't let this happen again". After all these shootings, Congress has done nothing.

Calling these teens "Soros plants" or a ploy established by the Democratic Party to launch a campaign for more gun control is a mockery to their pain and suffering.

Now we're back to square one. Since inception, their programs have helped stop multiple school shootings and suicides, reduced bullying and victimization, and ensured hundreds of youth receive mental health and wellness assistance. John Cornyn said he would strengthen some instant background checks. "But we absolutely know that we're going to be saving lives". We've heard that way too many times before. She, too, thought more action would be taken in the wake of Sandy Hook. This is not about Democrats or Republicans. Swanwick placed flowers in remembrance of those who lost their lives that day, but was also there to honor the seventeen people that were shot and killed at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida February 14, 2018. These two men have had their chances. But I would like to suggest that just because it seems that nothing has changed after Columbine (or Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, Aurora or Las Vegas), it doesn't mean that change can't happen or isn't coming.

To this day, most Americans can not even begin to imagine the horror of what occurred in those classrooms to those children and the teachers who gave their lives to defend them. The time for political courage has long since passed. He was six years old. "I know that that's the way forward". If someone can buy a gun with virtually no restrictions in IN, then what the hell is going to stop that gun from getting to IL?

In addition to enacting stricter gun laws, CT has raised the level of community care for young people. We can mandate that parents keep their guns safe and locked away so that their children can't use them to kill others or themselves.

"You can't not feel this", he says.

Like most American gun owners, I allowed myself to shoot paper - paper targets, specifically.

If you are a legal gun owner, practice at the gun range, learn the gun laws of your state and practice safe gun ownership - but do not give up your guns. Obviously a gun does not have a mind of its own so firearms personification is a sick game and the wrong approach to the problem.

When we understand that NRA views are propaganda, in the interest of manufactures, and not fact, we also see remedies that do not violate the Second Amendment. "What we need now is ACTION".
