Sandy Hook: 27 killed. First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs: 26 killed. High school in Parkland, Florida: At least 17 killed.
What do all these scenarios have in common?
Gun control laws. Danger in places known to be safe. Innocent lives lost. Where do I even start? Shootings are happening all over the country, and innocent lives are being taken - yet, what are we doing about it? Sure, thoughts and prayers are being sent to the victims and their families, and that’s totally good enough. Is it? We need more than ‘thoughts and prayers’ from not only regular people, but politicians, the government, and authority of the United States of America. No matter where these shootings occur, they are places no person would ever have to worry about defending his or her life at - school, church, a concert, a sports game.
I go to school to learn, as everyone else does. I shouldn’t have to worry about defending myself and wondering if I’ll ever see my brother, who’s in 5th grade, my mom, who’s a teacher, and all of my other family, ever again. No person - be student, staff, professor, or teacher - should have to put their life on the line in a place of learning and education.
Yet, the government only considers all of regular society a spreadsheet. We’re numbers, statistics, data. We don’t matter. We don’t have families and friends that love us beyond words can express.
Thoughts and prayers aren’t enough. These shootings mainly happen in the United States, and for one main obvious reason - gun control laws. Yes, we have the second amendment of the Constitution, but we need to force change if we are to prevent innocent lives from being taken.
How many more people need to die before the government does something about these tragedies?
