On the day of Feb 14th, the valentines day, 2018. A day which was supposed to be celebrate for love and peace. But, rather, a terrible tragedy happened.

The suspect, Nikolas Cruz, only nineteen of age, carried an AR-15 to a Florida high school and caused 17 deaths. This is not the first time that mass school shooting has occurred in the States. Even in the state of Texas, such events have happened. So what is the issue here, and how many people have to die until we can finally find the root of these?

Many people couldn’t talk even about how the guns are supposed to symbolized the foundation of this country, and that owning guns are how the United States were established because the freedom of owning guns. However, according to the CNN, the police force have found 10 different kind of guns and ammo for each in the suspect’s house. So people can ague all they think about the guns and what they represents, but it almost only take a children to see that there are obvious problems here for guns control. If a 19 year-old teenage boy can own literally an arsenal, then who knows if anyone more dangerous can get their hands on another AR-15?

My view on this is that gun control doesn’t necessarily means to take away all the guns. It can be only applies a more serious restrictions on guns carrying laws or on purchasing guns. And it also doesn’t need to apply to all the armory, it can be only for fully automatic rifles like AR-15. I think there are many ways to fix this issue but somehow people are either avoiding the issues or trying to convince themselves and others that there are no issues here. So let’s not let those 17 lives and more die for nothing, and finally figure out a way to stop this once and for all.
