My prayers and condolences go out to the families and victims of the Florida shooting.
OK. So a 19-year-old high school dropout lost both of his adoptive parents. He moved in with another family. They knew he was in a state of depression. They knew he had an AR-15. Their policy was to "lock it away." But he had the key to the lockbox... so he had access to the gun.
OK. So a 19-year-old expelled from high school, diagnosed with depression owns a rifle.
Oh wait, there’s more. On his social media, he posted pictures with weapons and he wrote disturbing comments.
OK, so I guess the “see something, say something” isn’t legit; I guess other people thought it was acceptable for him to post the things he did. And wait, there’s more. He was found with bullets in his backpack.
I just can’t wrap my mind around the situation. In what way can anyone even begin to justify the reason he was allowed to have a gun?
My heart aches as I write this.
So, President Trump, you said, “We are here for you — whatever you need, whatever we can do, to ease your pain.”
I have something for you... GUN CONTROL.
You’re really sending your condolences to the victims and their families?
Last year you literally made it easier for the mentally ill to buy guns. Just now, you spoke about the shooting with complete avoidance of ‘gun.’ And you’re probably going to avoid any talk regarding gun control because, you know, “it’s not really the appropriate time to debate gun violence.” I’m just reminding you, If you’re a political leader doing nothing about this slaughter, you’re an accomplice.
To whoever has the power to change laws and regulations: Your prayers are not enough.
It’s time for policy change. It’s time for not only schools, but America as a whole to be protected from these dangers. As of right now, everyone’s terrified and we’re ready for safety.
