      These kids are being brainwashed, manipulated and exploited by the anti 2nd Amendment agenda and their propaganda.
      If you have the right to life, but not the right to armed defense of life, then it's not a right. It becomes a privilege conditional on the choice of the criminally violent not to be an armed threat. As long as weapons exist and people have the right to life, then they have the right to armed defense of life.

    The fact that students like myself, worry everyday about the possibility of being killed at a school, a place where you learn, is unbelievable and disgusting. Another thing, way more baffling, are the responses that the government make with more and more school shootings. They have prayers and thoughts but what they really need to be doing is making a change. We need WAY WAY stricter gun laws that can help America. We cannot just live with the fact that someone under 18, can purchase an ASSAULT RIFLE. And only 21 year olds and older can purchase a handgun. We really just need to wipe out guns, in general. The average American citizen does not need to have a gun. If we fixed the gun laws, no citizens would need a gun because of the much safer environment we would live in, if we had a government that cared. And I, as a kid, worry even about the world we love in. Where school shootings are common because of the change that is not happening. If we can just change the gun laws, the land of the free and the brave, would be much safer.

    They needed to tear down thst school building and rebuild in a new location. That's still not good to return there and constantly be reminded. All are not showing it but it may be hard on them.

    I don’t know 🤔 about kids going back to school again it became dangerous, it was rare in the past but it took Parkland to spread the danger to almost every school across the country. And the school system is crap anyway, not only the kids are given a bad education but also risking their lives to do it. Why make them go back? The Right Wing are practically letting these kids to get themselves killed just by doing nothing to change its system

    Nice try, Where does it say anywhere that you little pasty faced Liberals can dictate my "freewill". I know you little loser have no concept of freewill, it's what we as free Americans used to use when be wanted or needed some thing. Well that's before you Liberals stuck you pathetic politics and your noses in OUR lives. If you losers will mind your our business you will not have time to mind MINE. Get a life and a JOB, and SHUT UP!!! This is not about gun control, this is about people control, PERIOD!!!

    That's why school is the worst thing ever it judges your life and intelligence by how many marks you get (numbers), it's filled with things that cause depression,sadness, and let downs,psychotic teachers. It's just filled with bitterness.

    [NEWS FLASH march 13, 2018: the youtube piece I give a link to below has now been shut down. That is an interesting piece of evidence in itself. The video was from a mainstream news service, not from some conspiracy site].1:34 on ruclip.com/video/L-LI-CILcYc/video.html shows that the event was a piece of theatre. The witness says "I died"!

    I own several firearms, including an AR15. I am obviously pro second amendment and honestly I have never given gun control much thought. It wasn't the kids who made me want gun control change, it was the trolls. Reading about people calling the kids houses to harass them, people claiming these kids were fake, etc. made me realize how culturally sick the right wing is in this country. We need gun control. I don't want the right wing loonies to have access to firearms, and I bet more then half would fail an emotional stability evaluation like the grown babies they are.

      That Girl from da Bronx Year ago

      @Judicial78 Why would you go buy more parts before the "ban," if you are now for gun control? Contradictory.
      A true 2nd amendment supporter knows that there are already laws on the books that would work if enforced.
      A true 2nd amendment supporter would fight against any more laws.
      A true 2nd amendment supporter knows what will become of this country if we don't fight.
      A true 2nd amendment supporter knows it is NOT about guns but about mental illness &/or criminals.
      A true 2nd amendment supporter knows that without the 2nd amendment, there will be no constitution.

      Judicial78 we don’t need gun control, we need trigger control and child control. David Hogg is a fake, he wasn’t even there that day. What happened at that school, was terrible and true, and people calling these kids house is counter productive, but guns aren’t the problem.

  • Ray Chillz
    Ray Chillz Year ago

    You know something that could prevent this from happening? No it's not gun control. It's your educational System America. You putting shit ton of pressure to your student without counseling them. You ignore the student's mental health vulnerability thinking them as heartless and emotionless robot that's ready to study and study everyday. If only your government really care about the student, this kind of shit wouldnt happen. Psychological and mental health issue aint something to be taken granted. Learn from the mistake of the past!
