    It's not the gun it's the person. I don't understand why people won't accept that. Taking away guns will not solve the problem: if one responsible adult had a gun just imagine how many lives could have been saved.

    STOP BEING IDIOTS!!! THE AR-15 WAS INVENTED IN THE 1950s AS A SPORTING RIFLE AND NOTHING MORE!! A NINE MILLIMETER GLOCK HAS A BULLET TWICE THE SIZE OF THE .223 USED IN THE AR-15!!! STOP BELEIVING LIES THAT IT IS USED IN WAR!!! THE AR-15 HAS NEVER BEEN USED IN WAR EVER!!! IF YOU DONT BELEIVE ME LOOK IT UP OR ASK AN OFFICIAL THATS JUST A FACT!!!!!! AN AR-15 IS A SPORTING RIFLE THAT IS SEMI AUTOMATIC AND HAS NEVER BEEN USED IN WAR!!! STOP LYING AND BELIEVING LIES!!!

    its sad to think at school your safe when actually your not secured for when a real lockdown happens at your school. Those 17 kids didn't deserve to die, they had their lives ahead of them. Like Nicholas Dworet, He wanted to be a swimmer but he never had the chance because of this. And losing so much victims at schools makes t he whole community fall apart and they try hard to fight but they dont have that much stregnth to overpower the bad guys...Rest in peace to those 17 victims that passed away on Feburary 14th 2018 also known as Valentines day and the day florida lost 17 community members..You will be mist Greatly.

    this just made me so heartbroken like how could someone be so stupid to use a gun like that. so many people died and I am so sad for all the students and teachers whose lives were lost. this just shows how disgusting this world really is and it’s horrible. I hope the families of lost loved ones are okay and have gotten through this. fly high angels 💔

      he has every right to act like that though. he went to school that morning for an education but left knowing that many of his classmates were injured and dead. gun control is an issue in america and he knows that, he’s making it aware to everyone around. I don’t understand why he needs to “chill” when he’s venting about a serious issue that costed many lives to be lost.

      That's just getting more guns involved and even more gun access to students and teachers that could be future school shooters. The idea is to have less access to guns and make them harder to get into the hands of possible murders.

    "Weapons of war"... an AR-15 is not a weapon of war, let alone even technically an assault rifle lol. Semi automatic, shoots .226 (most of them at least), and it was literally created as a knock off M-16, smaller caliber bullet, fixed semi automatic fire rate, and given the state, has multiple restrictions on variability and attachments allowed on said AR-15.

    Ar-15 is not a weapon of war. It’s an armalite rifle, it’s not an assault rifle. It’s a semiautomatic. We don’t need gun control, this is obviously a mental health issue! When will everyone understand that. You’re supposed to blame the person pulling the trigger not the inanimate object. We blame drunk drivers when there are car accidents, not the inanimate objects, car control isn’t gonna help. Are you kidding me wake up!

    AR-15s are not "weapons of war." The military does not use them. They look much like the M-16 which the military does use. The AR-15 was specifically made as a civilian sporting rifle. They are semi-automatic, meaning just one round fires per pull of the trigger. Like most handguns you will come across.

    the shooter didn’t get the gun himself. he got it from a relative. so this situation wouldn’t have been stopped from gun laws. if someone really wanted to commit a crime they’d get a gun illegally. people like this need mental support and Jesus. or maybe just make it so you need training and a license in order to get a gun idk.

    The constitution prevents us from getting better gun control. Not the president, he couldn't pass a law if he wanted, it is a legal right to own a gun and it can only be taken away if you are a felon, Nikolas Cruz was NOT a felon, therefore no matter what, the government could not take away his right to own a gun.

    RIP all the 17 that died. U all should be alive right now. If the FBI had done their job I would of . A lot of ifs but I sadly aren't. Gun control laws won't fix anything. Most shootings happen in a place with gun control laws and people couldn't defend themselves. Gun control laws will only make it worse. Do I really think that will stop people? You can always get guns. And honestly as sad as those lives lost that's nothing compared to many big cities. U take away guns u take away peoples right to defend. Plz don't even bother trying to prove me wrong or whatever I will not be responding.
