Parkland High School Student: I Don’t Think Gun Control Would Have Prevented This

By John Porter

I’m not sure what I have to add about the tragedy at Parkland High School. I tend to agree with Charles Cooke here:

Capture

It would be nice if we were allowed a chance to think and reflect, but that’s not the world we live in. Instead it’s, “Sorry you were shot at, but can you tell us your political opinion? Bonus points if it’s the opinion I want you to have.” Like Brian Williams asking these students what they would do if they were elected officials.

I don’t think Williams was expecting their answer.

Gun-wise, I don’t think there’s any way to prevent it. You outlaw guns, it just creates higher demand for it. I think it has to do with mental health, though. If he’s been expelled three different times from three different schools, I think he should be helped out.

That’s the part that’s sticking with me. And I’m not getting in to a gun control vs mental health argument. But I heard from A LOT of people that the shooter was basically voted Most Likely to Shoot Up a School. Some students weren’t surprised that it eventually happened.

Whether it was using a gun or a table knife, this kid seemed hell bent on hurting people. The media alarmists don’t tell you that though. Doesn’t fit the narrative.
