After another horrible school shooting in the US, there should have been a response from the president. And he responded by sending his condolences and assurances to make the US schools safe again.
Florida school shooting tragedy
The tragedy that happened on February 14, 2018, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, appears to be the 8th deadliest mass shooting in modern US history. 17 people lost their lives that day. Police identified the shooter as former (approx. a year) student Nikolas Cruz, 19.
Donald Trump is accusing FBI
However, Donald Trump didn’t stop on his expressions of empathy and a promise to solve the shooting issue. He accused FBI of missing tips on shooter’s plan. He believes that this happened because of FBI’s too much time expenditure on investigation his collusion with Russia.
Arguably, Donald Trump is trying to find someone to blame while refusing to take responsibility for the tragedy.
Who's to blame?
The tricky thing is that there are few reasons, which may or may not show you another perspective:
- FBI indeed missed a report from Nikolas Cruz’s friend one month before shooting.
- Gun ban will not prevent people from killing each other. Furthermore, the black market would meet demand.
- Shooter himself is responsible for his actions. It was his decision: planned and conscious.
- Parents are taking full responsibility for children, and it is on their shoulders, what kind of person is their child becoming.
