    To those who are affected by these terrible things be strong and move on hopefully a better future can emerge out of the hurt caused by these mistakes and our way of life won't have to be like this in the days to come.

    the guy at 2:46 is someone who i respect . he is clearly angry, and devastated, and in confusion as to WHY laws are like this in America. he speaks with passion about his argument, he really believes, like many of us, that there NEEDS to be a change

    Why the heck would you literally have a mindset and intention in your mind that says “My goal is to end lives”? There is so much evil in this world.....

    If this where to happen at my school, omg, I would... omg I would probably try to block the door. They know we are in there. If they know we are in there, what’s the point of hiding. Stack the damn desks, chairs, anything. Take ur books and papers and through them to the door, block the person from ur door. The police will be be able to get u, they can find a way to get in because there is multiple of them, block the shooter/killer out.

  • Crippling Depression Felix

    You’re not supposed to hide under the desks.. you’re supposed to go to the farthest side of the room with no windows or a door, you’re allowed to arm yourself with anything available, like a book, scissors, chairs, anything to protect yourself.

    At my school, we have a protocol for the fire alarm thing. When one goes off, we go into lockdown drill mode until its confirmed through an intercom that it's a fire drill. If after 3 minutes that intercom is still silent, it's an actual lockdown. The fire alarm in a way could be our warning for an active shooter, since when one goes off it's treated as an actual lockdown.

    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 💔

    Literally not even a month after this, my school got a threat that there was an active shooter on campus and then 10 minutes after that, that there was active bombs on campus.
