In theory, a school is a safe space. It is a space for learning and molding young minds. It has also become a place of mass murder.
In Kentucky earlier this week, a fifteen year old boy walked into his high school and started shooting at his classmates and teachers. Two students were killed and 18 were injured.
Today is January 25th. We are not even done with the first month of 2018 and there have been 11 school shootings since New Years.
I hate to beat a dead horse, but I will, because it has to be done. We need stricter gun laws and we need them now. In fact, we needed them yesterday and we needed nearly twenty years ago when 12 students and one teacher were killed during the Columbine High School massacre. I agree with the second amendment, but we need to face our reality in 2018.
The need of stricter gun laws are a necessity. Unfortunately, the continued loss of life seems to be over the head of some people.
