On January 18, a 15-year-old boy walked into his school and shot his teacher, two classmates, then killed himself. He attended a bilingual American School of the Northeast in Mexico. The boy is identified as Federico Guevara who was had been treated for depression. It has also been revealed that he planned this and announced it to a closed Facebook group where he was later being honored by the members of the group after the shooting. Mexican President, Enrique Pena Nieto, expressed his shock and hurt about the shooting and wrote on twitter “As a parent and a President, what happened this morning at a school in Monterrey hurts me” “I join with the pain and dismay of families”

I think that the shooting could have been prevented, especially if it was posted on social media. There is no way that word didn’t get around about what was going to happen. Especially because anything on the internet can be seen by anyone at any moment. I also think the school should have kept a closer eye on him because of his previous mental illness, as they should with any students with history of mental illnesses.

“Let’s be clear about this. Our mental health system is broken. It needs to be fixed. Too many politicians have ignored this problem for too long. All of the tragic mass murders that occurred in the past several years have something in common – there were red flags that were ignored. We can’t allow that to continue. We need to expand treatment programs, because most people with mental health problems aren’t violent, they just need help. But for those who are violent, a danger to themselves or others, we need to get them off the street before they can terrorize our communities. This is just common sense.”

This is what republican leaders have said about gun violence. He wants to fix the people who have mental health problems. Because you can not fix someone who has caused violence with violence. People who think like this need help mentally and that how republicans and democrats could fix the problem.

    The violence in schools is a big issue. Some students who has problems they don’t care about him and much less other people. The U.S has a big problem with people doing this, gun violence. Making a connection on Wednesday, a shooter killed at least 17 people at Marjory Stone man Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. The president talk about make the frontier wall, but he should take care about this shooter. If you want info about what happen in DHS FL here is a link https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/15/us/florida-high-school-shooting/index.html
