    Two fathers of Parkland shooting victims were blown off by US House Representative Matt Gaetz at a Congressional hearing Gaetz tried to have one of the fathers removed from this Congressional hearing, which was supposed to be on gun violence. Gaetz turned this hearing into a pro-Wall one. Many comments on that video are unkind ones by Gaetz supporters. A few folks even said the fathers were illegal aliens.

      Andy Griggs many of those first responders were gutless. I think a lot of the people would have done something rather than nothing.

    I get the no gun march but people will still manage to get guns I mean the black market is a thing. The only thing that will come from no guns being allowed would be less protection from those who use them for ridiculousness like this.

    There is a lot of evidence that this shooting was staged. Not just a little, overwhelming evidence.

    Nancy pelosi said the next democratic president could call a national emergency on guns. How about we call one on mental health in this country instead and start lessening the amount of lunatics that want to hurt people. No matter what you think, there are too many guns in this country to get rid of. Even if you went door to door and took every gun you could find, there would still be millions of guns left unaccounted for. There are already background checks on gun purchases in every state and even when you buy online. Every "common sense gun law" you could think of is already being used. The states with the strictest gun control laws still have shootings, but the people in those states don't have the ability to defend themselves from a lunatic with a gun. Someone wanting to hurt people could do it with a knife or a hammer if they wanted. The tool used doesn't matter, Its the mentally ill person behind the tool.

    February 14th, 2018 and everyday after, all I thought about was the one year mark. I don’t even live in Florida; I live in Pennsylvania and yet yesterday was always on my mind. And just like that, here I am waking up on February 15th, 2019, and in the past 365 days from today, absolutely nothings changed at all. If 20 six year olds dying didn’t show people that somethings wrong with America, I’m not sure that anything will, but you better believe that I’m gonna keep trying 🧡

    No more gun control take away wasteful spending from government use it on securing our Schools. Punishing everyone by having more gun control divides us. That is what politicians want. Take the politicians money away for government wasteful spending using on school security Try protecting us rather than dividing us

      We don't need more gun control we need to take wasteful spending from government and use it in schools for security we don't need to punish everyone who owns guns that divides us

    • Evelyn Kondrahjian
      Evelyn Kondrahjian 8 months ago +2

      Coryx Fan it has a lot to do with what happened because if he had problems at home suffering only god knows and yet going to school and getting bullied by the so called “hero’s of parkland” like how did this girl emma know he was going to be the shooter?! Exactly yeah he was going through something at home and having to go to school and support peoples non sense mixed his problems out of school with the problems in school and you’ll get a result and that result is a school shooting yes guns have a huge part but the other huge part is problems at home and school

      Evelyn Kondrahjian tf does bullying have to with this? This is a MASS SHOOTING, done by someone that was mentally ill. Not bullied.

      @times up Yea but a 223 (civilian version of the 5.56 NATO) it pales in comparison to a 50 beowolf and 30 06 ( my M1 Grand ) and yes my 50AE. It's strong when compared to handgun calibers but is weak compared to rifle rounds.

      Nelly Bean, you should move to Wakanda where you’ll be safe from the real world. Wakanda is a mythical land with lots of pleasantries and zero shootings.

    At my old school, we had threats and parole showing up trying to harm. No one ever did anything. After everything that happened you would think people would at least help us. But instead we are told to keep silence after what happened to us

      Probably. No one cares if poor minority kids get killed, and it doesn’t sell on the news.
