This Is How Social Media Reacted Over Florida High School Shooting

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida saw the worst of humanity as a former student named Nikolas Cruz – a 19-year old expelled on disciplinary grounds – opened fire on innocent lives earlier this week on Wednesday. With 17 confirmed casualties, the whole United States, as well as the rest of the world, is in shock.

The gunman started firing outside the school in South-Eastern Florida with his semiautomatic AR-15 rifle, killing three people, following which he entered one of the buildings in the school where the lunatic unleashed a storm of gunfire. 5 people are reported to be severely injured in the heartening incident which rocked the Parkland town just before the school time was over at 2:40 pm local time.

Social media is stormed with messages of grief and sorrow for the departed souls, demanding justice from the authorities. Let’s have a look at how people are sharing their emotions over the microblogging platform Twitter.

Let’s start with President Trump. “No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school”, says the Republican while offering condolences to the victims’ families.

Prayers for the departed souls.

Horrible, indeed.

The families of the victims have had to go through so much.

Death penalty?

People need authorities to take strict action, and let it not happen again.

The truth, indeed.

Double standards?

There are questions about the mental state of the alleged murderer. The reason behind his mental health must be brought forward as well.


While others are concerned about the gun control laws in the States, and rightly so.

The issue has sparked a debate over the possession of guns and the ‘GunControlNow’ hashtag over Twitter explains it all.

Guns are the PROBLEM.

NRA is in hot water following the incident.

What do you think about the incident? Should the Trump administration take immediate actions to ban guns in the States?
