    Turning a tragedy into a racially motivated attack of course 🤦‍♂️ because he was definitely only targeting black people.

    I was in middle school when this happened, I’m in high school now. I live in Canada. When me and my mom first heard about this, she said “Really, another one?” It was at that time that I started to realize how often school shootings happen and how big of a problem it is down in the US. This happens often not only because of the passive gun laws, but also because of the lack of good mental health resources and the health care system in the US, and the corrupt US justice system, and many more, and the government is doing nothing about this country wide, or so I’ve been told. Something has to be done to stop this, honestly, changing the gun age from 18 to 21 is gonna barely do anything to help the situation in my opinion, but it is a start. When I got to school the next day, I walked into my math class and kids were actually joking about this, saying they’re gonna shoot up the school, it’s no different in high school too, people here laugh at it and treat it like a joke. I absolutely hate it, people die young because of this when they had their whole lives ahead of them. I love your story and I find it really inspiring and I think others should watch this video. And playing dead is actually a good way to survive and I would do that too. I still think about this because it’s very important to know. Thanks.
    Also there’s only been about 11 school shootings that I know of that happened in Canada, when there has been 100s of them in the US, I live in a moderately big city and there has been a shooting here at a high school that killed 2 or 3 people back in the 70s or 80s.
    Also, for those of you who think praying is the answer, that’s gonna do absolutely nothing, I get it, people are religious, and I could just be saying this because I’m an atheist, but still. What’s gonna stop this from happening is you guys actually doing something about this to change the fate of your country. I’m only saying this because I want you guys to do something about it, I hate seeing this stuff happening and people doing nothing except praying when they can actually make a change like the Parkland students are trying to do.

    We put gps tracking devices on our cars, cellular phones, laptops and some cases our pets to track our location, somthing lost ,stolen or where were going. Do you think its a good idea putting them on weapons of mass casualties such as the ones used in these recent mass shootings to warn schools ,our children and authorites when someone is traveling with an assault rifle on property? Is this a better solution then having people surrender their weapons or anything else that society cant agree on? If so please support or raise awarness thank you and God bless the familys, friends and innocent victims.

      Parkland Hoax well, it’s official. I’ve seen the biggest conspiracy theorist to date. I can now die knowing I’ve accomplished everything. The only flaw with your theory is #1 it’s a theory. Let me break that down for you since you skipped school entirely. Theories are not fact nor based on facts. They are all suspicion. #2, my mother has a friend who’s daughter attended the school at the time of the shooting. I can assure you, it was real. #3 my girlfriend is from coral springs Florida. Again I go back to my first point of you missing all years of school so I’ll inform you where Coral Springs is. It’s about 20 minutes from parkland. It’s safe to say, although I did not attend that school nor was I from the area, but everyone I know has some sort of connection to parkland and has confirmed it.
