Somehow, access to guns and automatic weapons in the US is still as easy as ever, despite the thousands of innocent lives lost over the years due to mass shootings.

There have been too many school shootings here in the United States. Yet, the government refuses to acknowledge the fact that our gun laws are out of control and are completely unnecessary.

But it seems recent events have made an impact – as one story from Texas proves.

Since the Columbine shooting in 1999 that saw 2 boys murder twelve students and 1 teacher before committing suicide, a series of mass murders were to follow over the years, spreading devastation across the entire country.

The majority of these shootings have sadly taken place in schools at the hands of students struggling with mental health problems. It is astounding how these young people were able to gain access to guns.

Other countries that have suffered from mass shootings made immediate changes to their laws. New Zealand’s banned military-style weapons after fifty people were killed in 2 mass shootings in mosques in the city of Christchurch.

Statistics found that there have been at least 2,264 mass shootings since the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting in 2012 that claimed the lives of twenty-six children and teachers. 2,561 Americans have died from mass shootings, yet our government continues to allow access to guns and automatic weapons.

It’s truly frightening.

It seems as if the government is more interested in making money from gun trade rather than saving the lives of their people.

And it appears as though schools are now trying to take matters into their own hands.

“We have one person of interest that we are working with Harris County district attorney’s office on criminal charges,” David Kimberly, Klein Independent School District’s chief of police, confirmed.

“I will tell you that investigation is still ongoing and the fact that we had multiple postings yesterday and the day before, so we’re going to track down each and every one of those.”

“If you make a threat to our campus, there is a very strong likelihood you’re going to be expelled immediately. That student last night is no longer a student at Klein ISD. Not only will you be expelled but we will present and try to put any charges we can.”

“A disturbing social media trend has emerged across the nation, which involves students posting disruptive behavior on social media at schools to gain likes,” said Klein Cain High School Principal Nicole Patin.

“This kind of activity will continue to be fully investigated and any student involved will be punished to the fullest extent of the Student Code of Conduct and the law.”

“This is not a prank. This is not a joke. This is not something to get more likes and more shares,” Kimberly agreed.

“You might get notoriety, but it’s not going to be the kind of notoriety you’re looking for.”
