    Taking the guns awzy is not the answer, mental health care in this country is almost non existent, removing the pledge of allegiance, waring against the christian faith, the breakdown of the family unit, children iut of wed lock, violent videro games, leagle weed. All these things add up to a social retard attitude and a acceptance of violence.
    When the family unit was togeather and raised with christian values very few mass killings happened, now we are immune to violence, sex, and crime.
    I blame the equal rights movement in the 60s for the breakup of familys. Divorce is killing our country. Single women cannot raise socially ounded children.

    How does he have his entire back and chest so scarred if he only took 1 bullet in the back and 1 bullet in the torso? And this is a serious question so don't attack me for simply asking a question.

    • Jennifer Alvarado
      Jennifer Alvarado 2 months ago

      none yabizz probably because the bullet hit bone, tissue, nerves, it probably wasn’t just a flesh wound.

    Anthony and his family fled the violence and dangers of the Venezuela crisis, and came to the U.S in hopes of a better quality of life...and then this happened :( he was shot in the hallway and the shooter followed him towards a classroom. To protect his classmates he blocked the door with his body the guy shot his back. His dream soccer team gifted him a signed jersey and invited him to Spain when he recovered.
    I hope the very best for this kid.

    It’s crazy what one human being can do, to impact a persons/ people’s life in a negative way. Nicolas Cruz deserves to die but in a way he can feel the pain. Tazer him 30 seconds everyday. He doesn’t deserve life.

    No kid should have to do that. If god existed then this wouldn't have happened. He survived because technology and doctors. Glad he's ok. That's all that matters. He is a medical merical so they can thank it's god. It doesn't matter. He's alive while others aren't. I HATE guns.

    This guy did more to stop/delay the shooter than the police and yet the big media giants gave him little air time compared to David Hogg and his tool-like cronies.

    “Equally as tough” pshhhhhhhh. So your saying people going and talking in a stage is equal to getting shot 5 times, losing part of your lung, getting a rod hammered into ur leg, and emotional trauma. Ok

    Bro you are a hero you saved people, you didn’t have to you couldn’t just hid like everyone else but you chose to do something anything you can do. For people you probably don’t know that’s what brings out the good of people when we just help one another or somebody just cause for a great reason. It can make that person feel great..keep pushing man it’ll take time but your getting there back to playing soccer soon.

    Idk if anyone will believe my comment but he was in front of my door when he got shot he was knocking and groaning for help, and it was killing me not being able to go out and help him because I was so in shock I couldn’t move and if he would have died I would have felt horrible and guilty, I’m so glad he survived, he is really brave for doing what he did
