    • Hi Mary. I agree with your views for the most part. I agree when you said, “These kids felt so much pain that they felt as though there only escape was a gun. This shows that that the problem is deeper rooted in the mental health of a child” I also believe that mental health plays one of the bigger roles when it comes to a student shooter coming into a school. I appreciate that you had evidence within your article to back up your thoughts. The one part that I didn’t fully agree with was when you said the best care takers for students are their parents. When a shooter comes into a school, they tend to not have an great family that they can lean back on. I believe that students should been shown that there is resources and trusted adults within their school to talk to, like counselors.

      Here is an article about mass school shooters who have grown up fatherless.

      This article talks about how shooters struggled in their life because they didn’t have that parent to rely on.

      Looking forward to hearing from you.
