    What impact would it have if victim's families sued the parents of these mass murderers and states ALSO prosecuted the parents regardless if shooter(s) survive or not. Would such factors be carefully weighed in by (if not deter) a potential shooter? We don't see as many committing suicide anymore. Notwithstanding the rest of their natural life in prison or death row, they're making a conscious decision to not sever ties with this world. But why? It's got to be family.

    What happened in Parkland (and Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Las Vegas, Orlando, San Bernardino, etc......) is tragic and unsettling. My heart goes out to those victims and their friends and relatives.
    Unfortunately, changing the laws of the country - including even repealing the Second Amendment - is not the answer. It will not prevent mass shootings from happening. It's the equivalent of passing laws to stop natural disasters: just because you have the laws will not stop such disasters from occurring. This is the same with active shooters: they know they are breaking the law and they couldn't care less (that's why they are called "bad guys"). And they know how and where to get firearms, whether or not they're legal.
    Our best protection is preparation. Just as we hold drills for natural disasters, we must conduct them (and educate ourselves) on active shooters.

    They forgot to tell you that Emma Gonzalez admitted to bullying the shooter and the fact that she is a paid leftist crisis actress...

      @David Rauschenbach not in this interview but she did admit that in a previous interview when she was referring to the killers mental state, you can look it up around the time of the incident...

    The only change needed is to start holding trusted authorities accountable when they fail to address years of warning signs. Stop deflecting blame onto millions of good people who did nothing wrong. Those pushing for more gun control are covering for negligence, incompetence, and corruption - and therefore have blood on their hands.

    No. I refuse to let other people’s temporary emotions take away my rights to protect myself permanently . Nice try though.

      Perhaps if none of the civilians didnt have any guns wouldnt you have a higher chance of surviving fist to fist or running? The idea of having guns to protect yourself is stupid

    It's actually quite easy to pull the strings on a kid who's still another 4 years away from having a fully developed brain. Biological REALITY.

    As a retired cop, ex military, I can tell you what the main argument is here. Its just 2 points...who should own a weapon and what type of gun. I own several types of guns, I use for home defense, target shooting and collecting. I see these students agenda as banning all semi-auto rifles, having a 5 round magazine limit, and a background check to the point a person with a minor infraction could not pass. What almost no one would say is a standard pump shotgun could be as lethal as an AR-15 with a regular magazine.

    Ps Rick Scott is awesome for adding police armed with assault rifles. Never felt safer in my life. He should be in jail though for Medicare fraud

    First off I support guns rights AND gun control. Second: Shame on the people trying to silence these students. For a generation known for self entitlement and laziness, these kids are actually doing something about their situation.

      @David Rauschenbach btw did I mention that all those teachers that went nuts were liberals? #DontArmTheLiberals!

    • Billy Sooner
      Billy Sooner 7 months ago

      @John Young one time, my teacher got really mad and started yelling at te cool kids in my class and he threw a stapler at someone. Had he thrown bullets, the entire class woul have calmed down.

    • Billy Sooner

      @John Young that would be pretty funny though, seeing one of my substitutes having another breakdown, and start brandishing her weapons as she tells everyone how nobody like her. Hehe.

    • Billy Sooner

      @John Young I'm glad you agree that teachers should not hold guns, and instead hire private security forces who's paycheck depends on their overall performance.

    Let's just continually gloss over the failures of law enforcement, mental health, bullying, etc and put the blame on inanimate objects, shall we?

    These kids have been indoctrinated by those pulling their strings. Outlaws aren't affected by gun laws. But I these kids want to turn the law-abiding into outlaws. Not logical.

    • John Young
      John Young 7 months ago

      @David Rauschenbach Nobody, except all the Democrat operatives who're coaching these kids, paying for their travel expenses, and getting them media gigs along with phony "awards" for their phony "activism." If kids can so easily mobilize a political movement, why don't we see this for every major political issue? Plenty more kids die from plenty other things than mass shootings. Stop shilling for evil.

    Young kids that don't have clue. Mental illness and prescribed drugs for all these shootings. It's not the gun.

    Nothing is going to change. If ppl want to buy a military assault rifle they can with a clean background check. There's no writings in the 2nd amendment that says ppl can't buy assault rifles or any other type of gun. People have the right to bear arms period.

    The main difference between NRA members and non-members is that a higher percentage of NRA members vote than the general population does. If people want stricter gun control legislation then they need to vote for candidates who support such laws. If you don't vote, don't expect anything to change.

      glaco All I am is a 16 year old girl that knows what’s right and a school being shot up is not right. I did go to Washington and I believe everything I have said. And what I said doesn’t even have anything to do with any of you’re comments. So all you guys commenting are stupid, all I did was say that I went there and cried. I went to MFOL. Washington was fun. Go comment on everyone else’s posts

    • glaco

      Already commented but decided to come back and call @Im a Dino a fat pseudo-intellectual who thinks she’s different by being exactly like everyone else on Tumblr. Have fun being pushed and pulled in whatever directions your emotions take you seeing as you have no control over them. Your environment, namely the media, tells you what to do. You’re nothing more than a plastic bag in the wind doomed to live a reactionary, mindless life.

      "To conquer a nation, you must first disarm its citizens.”, “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjugated races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjugated races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.” -Adolf Hitler.
      “One man with a gun can control 100 without one.” - Vladimir Ilyich Lenin.
      “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.” - Mao Tze Tung.

    You can't prevent shootings. They will always happen. The real focus should be: How can you minimize the casualties during a shooting? If you're trying to inflict as many casualties as possible, it's exceedingly more difficult to do so if every entrance is staffed with a security guard. It's also difficult if there is only one entrance and if that entrance has a metal detector. In order to make smart gun laws you really have to think like a shooter and study which laws have been most effective in preventing school shootings internationally. (Israel!)

      @John Young This is not considered an admission of bullying. "So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled for bad and erratic behavior. Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities again and again. We did, time and time again. Since he was in middle school, it was no surprise to anyone who knew him to hear that he was the shooter. Those talking about how we should have not ostracized him, you didn’t know this kid. OK, we did. We know that they are claiming mental health issues, and I am not a psychologist, but we need to pay attention to the fact that this was not just a mental health issue. He would not have harmed that many students with a knife."

      @David Rauschenbach Emma screeched when giving a speech, "You didn't know him!" That's right, Emma. Millions of good people who did nothing wrong didn't know the troubled peer that you mocked and excluded for years. Stop demanding that others need to make changes for your sociopathy. You're responsible.
