State Must Take Lead on Gun Control


Across the nation, people listened to children hiding in desperation, surrounded by gunfire. In 2016, a Florida mental health agency examined Nikolas Cruz, the shooter in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, and decided not to hospitalize him.

It's been barely over a week since a man armed with an AR-15 killed 17 students and faculty members at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL but there has already been a sharp increase in conspiracy theorists decrying survivors as "crisis actors" working on behalf of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. We can't wait for the shock of this to fade. These actions are incredibly remarkable considering they are high school students and survivors of a recent, traumatic incident. We would hope there are legislators in Minnesota who would introduce similar legislation to protect our children. Columbine, Las Vegas, Sandy Hook, Orlando, Sutherland Springs, Virginia Tech, San Bernardino, Aurora, Red Lake. Back then, there were no guns that could kill 20+ people with the pull of a trigger.

Yet, there is no legitimate need for civilians to own semi-automatic assault weapons that, with minor modifications, can be transformed into fully-automatic killing machines.

Mr Eaton, programme director for Faster Savers Lives, does not accept the argument that guns should be kept out of school.

The students have become outspoken activists following the deadly shooting that killed 17 people at their South Florida high school. Parliament immediately took action and an act, followed by another in 1997 effectively banned private ownership of any handgun.

He said they both reject the idea that teachers should be armed. And not five years later, at the same base, another shooting came again.

Like most American gun owners, I allowed myself to shoot paper - paper targets, specifically.

In the time following Florida, Speaker Paul Ryan allegedly warned lawmakers to not jump to a "knee-jerk" reaction before "having all the facts and data". This is not about the Second Amendment. It will be held March 14 at 10:00 a.m., and they're set to continue monthly until an adequate response is made. "Trump and other politicians in DC might think I'm just a kid who is not capable of making a difference, but we'll see what they think about that when I vote in 2021". In this case, most media outlets rely on either, a gun control advocacy group backed by Michael Bloomberg that tracks such incidents, or the Gun Violence Archive, an independent effort organized by volunteers to track gun violence in the U.S. "I just want to say it's astounding what you've been doing and we're watching you and we think it's unbelievable".

"I think it can be very hard to see who's going to do this", Scott told FOX Business' Neil Cavuto on Friday.

"It's not going to be talk like it has been in the past", he said. It's simply an attempt by the National Rifle Association to sell more guns, Leslie Gunn said.

While numerous people who participated in the White House listening session offered substantive proposals, it's clear the NRA-owned president will advocate "solutions" that please the gun lobby and don't really make schools or communities any safer. You're insane. You're a insane person.

How much attention is now paid to the attack in Benton, Kentucky, only a few weeks ago, where two teenagers were killed and children were injured in the rush to escape?
