Parkland Survivors Disgusted by Trump's Reaction To Santa Fe Shooting

Parkland

Upon the news that a gunman opened fire on a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, killing an estimated 10 people, the Parkland, Fla., school shooting survivors turned activists had a lot to say. Emma Gonzalez was quick to respond, offering her empathy to the students.

Her fellow March for Our Lives leaders spoke out as well.

 

Kasky and Corin noted that Trump's live-tweeting the murder of students minimized the violence into a sports game.

Gonzalez, although offering just one statement, retweeted several nuanced perspectives on the issue. Some addressed the fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has not been allowed to study gun violence as a national public health problem.

 

While other criticized the root of it all, the government's inability to enact change for its citizens.
