Okay, I hate talking politics, I hate expressing my opinions on things, but this is bullshit. There have been more mass shootings than days in the year in the United States. This has been an issue for decades and still absolutely nothing is being done to fix it.
I'm American-Canadian. I was born in the United States and I consider it my home. I will never, ever, return home, because I know that shit like this will continue to happen day, after day, after day. In Canada, you can't buy anything more than hunting rifles. Even then you have to have years of training in order to obtain your license, you have to have that license for months before you can legally purchase a weapon. In the United States you can buy it at your local grocery store. I am sick and tired of this bullshit.
I am absolutely not saying that Canada's gun laws are perfect, during my first month at high school we had two active shooters in the building and were on lockdown for two hours each. Halfway through the year we were all sent home for a week after several bomb threats. But that total is three. Three times has my school gone into shutdown the full 4 years I attended. In the United States, there have been more mass shootings than days in the goddamn year. Sandy Hook happened 10 years ago and no change whatsoever has been put into place.
Often from my American family I hear arguments about how it's in the constitution, about how it's better to have one and not need one than it is to need one and not have one. You know when you won't need one? WHEN THERE ISNT A GUN IN YOUR FUCKING FACE! If unqualified Americans cannot have guns, than there is barely any situation you will ever need one. Guns absolutely do kill people, they are made for no purpose other than to injure and to kill. Why the hell is it even a debate? What on earth would you ever need a gun for other than to defend yourself? Is a gun ever used for good? Even police officers use them as intimidation instead of actively shooting people. Guns were there at that school, police were there at that school, and all any of their guns did was kill children. Shape the hell up America.
