Students lead call for gun control in aftermath of Florida shooting


Wednesday’s shooting is Florida’s third major shooting incident since a gunman massacred 47 people at the gay nightclub “Pulse” in Orlando in 2016. Yet the only victories for gun-control advocates have been the defeats of legislation aimed at loosening gun control, like a proposed law that would allow some people to take guns into airports.

Victims of last week’s Florida school shooting gathered with thousands of supporters on Saturday to say “enough is enough”. The crowd chanted “shame on you”, denouncing politicians’ inaction in the wake of the country’s latest mass shooting.

Why Most Americans Can Buy AR-15s Before They Can Have Their First Beer


The 18-year-old age restriction to buy long guns, including assault-style rifles, is a vestige of a half-century-old law.

This week’s mass shooting at a Florida high school, where a lone gunman opened fire on students and staff, killing 17 and injuring 15, has distressingly similar details in the profile of the suspect and his weapon. A 19-year-old former student with a history of disciplinary issues had gotten his hands on an AR-15, a semi-automatic rifle capable of firing highly lethal rounds in rapid succession. And he’d done so completely legally.
