The thing that pisses me off the most about this Florida school shooting is that this kid’s instagram IS LITERALLY HIM SHOWING OFF HIS BIG ASS GUNS.
AND NO ONE SAID ANYTHING. NO ONE REPORTED IT AND SHOWED ZERO CONCERN OR QUESTIONED LIKE “hey, it’s kind of odd that my former classmate is showing off his guns on social media, maybe I should tell his parents or alert the principal because he looks pretty pissed off”.
We are so unbelievably desensitized to guns and it’s horrible. I hate when a tragedy happens and it’s not until people fucking die when people give a shit about regulating guns (specifically gigantic fucking guns that aren’t fucking legal).
I hate that all policians say is “thoughts and prayers” how about you shut the fuck up and work on finding a solution? stop sitting there in your stupid ass leather chair at your fancy desk talking out of your tiny uptight ass about “prayers”, save your stupid speech, save it all and get the fuck down to whoever you need to talk to about fixing this shit.
If I ever have kids one day, I’m not about to send my kids to school if solutions aren’t going to be offered up. I’ll homeschool them, I don’t give a fuck.
I’m mad. I’m mad and I’m glad people are mad, STAY THE FUCK MAD. Hopefully this can light a fire under our asses to fix this fucking country.
Edit: yes I know about the report to the FBI but they didn’t do much so bye, next
no, his behavior on social media wasn’t “normal” he posted a picture of a bloody dead frog on his Instagram feed, that’s not just some kid showing off guns, that’s animal cruelty and who posts that kind of thing? first rule of psychopathy is killing animals, bye NEXT

what to do/remember during a school shooting
I know how dramatic it sounds to even have a post about this, but it’s something that I think about quite often. I’m a senior in high school and I attend a… well, country school. It’s quite small. My school has a violent atmosphere, to put it simply. Every time there is a mass shooting, teachers in every one of my classes make sure to explain just what would happen in my school, just in case one of the violent kids decide to do something big. So, because of my terrible anxiety and amazing ability to overthink, I gather the information my teachers tell me and I also go out of my way to try and understand just what I can do in that unthinkable situation… mostly the latter. What your teachers tell you really depends on your school and the area around it.
Before I start listing things, remember that the moment you hear a gunshot, or become alerted about a threat on campus, before you call your mother, or your uncle or sister, call 911. They need to be the first to know about the threat so they can begin to try and neutralize it immediately. Give information about the school, don’t throw out anything that you don’t know 100% and ask them what you should do or tell them your plan if it has already escalated where you have to make your decisions.
1. Make sure the shoes that you are wearing never interfere with how you are able to run. If you’re in a position where you need to get out of there fast, you don’t want to fall prey to your shoes. I know that may sound a little much, and sometimes I think that too, until I remember how much of a warzone it can be from what we’ve seen on social media and in the news. Be prepared to run, because your adrenaline will kick in and you don’t want to hold it back. Also, if you are running, run in a zig zag. It makes you a harder target if you are constantly moving against the path.
2. If you see anything online/hear anything towards your school that is threatening your safety with fire arms, first call the police. Then, call the school. If you aren’t sure what is going on, don’t come to school the next day. Trust your gut- something really could be going on.
3. It may sound a little redundant, but remember where every single exit is. If you are ever in a situation where your security is your own responsibility (i.e. you aren’t with a teacher or another person of authority) then remember where you can get yourself to safety if need be. Also, a bathroom is not an exit or a means to safety- there is no windows and little (if anything???) you could use as a weapon.
4. TRUST YOUR SENSES- and use them to your advantage. Use what you can see and hear. Seeing more than hearing- visual confirmation is important because of the total chaos that could be going on around you. Your eyes do not lie, especially when your fight or flight instincts have kicked in. Hearing can be tricky, especially if it comes with a “he said” and a “she said.” As previously mentioned, seeing is believing in this instance, so trust what you hear with a grain of salt. However, if you hear a gun shot, or you hear pounding feet, trust yourself and remain collected and quiet.
5. Speaking of visuals, don’t go out of your way to get them; help is surely on the way. Stay where you are and do not move around. It only makes you and everybody around your vulnerable. Just like talking: silence is key. As stated, when you trust your senses, the shooter is also trusting his- if a shooter is passing by and hears nothing, chances are they will continue on and you can remain in your hiding space, safe.
6. When hiding, don’t just trust that a shooter won’t just hear nothing and keep moving, though. Take cover. Find something to make wherever you are appear empty. An overturned desk, a teachers desk, a bookshelf. However, your first thought should never be to hide: it should always be escape. If you see an exit and you know where it leads and how to get out of your possible gun situation, take it. (#3) Concrete is always first choice in hiding behind, but it isn’t always available. Also, if you are hidden, crouch. Stay out of the windows unless it is your means to safety, and stay on your hands and knees. This could protect your organs from richoeting bullets, though your hands, knees or wrists could be hit. This is better than the alternative- a lung, for instance.
7. Mentioning that, remember that those things (desks, bookshelves, etc) are good for more than just shielding your body. You can push heavier, sturdier things in front of the door. Make it as hard as possible to access the area you are in. LOCK. THE. DOOR. And not just with a key, because that isn’t always possible (and you never know if the shooter has a master key!) Never make it very obvious, though, in case a shooter begins to realize that there are potential victims locked in a room. However, the real thing to consider is time. What can get you to safety as soon as possible? That is different with possibly every school, depending on where you are.
8. If you have to break a window, like I mentioned briefly above, and you are without an object to do so, remember to always ALWAYS ALWAYS cover your fist with a jacket, or a shirt. You don’t want to self inflict injuries unless absolutely necessary because it can either be a distraction, or the blood from your fist can act as a way to track you if it drips. Be mindful.
9. No matter how much you like your backpack or what is inside of it, drop it the second you know there’s a situation. Nothing inside of it is worth you and it will only drag you down if you have to run. When rescued, you will either have it taken away or asked to leave it behind by law enforcement anyways, just to make sure you are also not a threat to the situation or aiding the situation. Seconds are gold in this type of situation.
10. Speaking of rescuing, keep your hands high so officers know you are not a threat to the campus. If you want to record (which is a personal choice) or just keep your phone on you, either put your phone in your pocket, or somewhere else that is not your hands. I reccomend a jacket with zippers- I have one, and I keep my phone zipped up so I don’t have to worry about it falling out.
11. If the unthinkable on top of the unthinkable has happened, and you are around a dead body, and you are also about to reach the same fate– cover yourself in blood. Play dead.
12. IF you have your phone, make sure it is dead silent. The second news breaks about what is going on, it is human nature to want to communicate. If you have a loved one calling you, send them to voicemail unless you are 110% sure nobody that wants to harm you can hear you. But, truthfully, you can never really be 110% sure in this type of situation.
13. Earlier I mentioned fight or flight- if you are in the position that you have to fight for your survival, everything is a weapon. Look for scissors, staplers, holepunchers, glass, anything that can be used to either knock the shooter out, or seriously throw him off course. A pen can even act as a weapon- make sure your thumb is supporting the back of it so you can really do some damage with it. When fighting, even though you (or maybe just me) thinks to go for the sensitive areas, like a mans balls, instead focus on getting the gun out of their hands- stab their wrists, their arms, or if you can knock them unconcious, hit the top of their head. A fire extinguisher would be effective in this instance.
14. Try. To stay. With. A group. This makes #13 much easier- fighting one on one with someone in a situation where they have the upper hand is hard and nearly impossible to win. When you have numerous people with you, it can be easier to overpower the shooter. I also reccommend learning how to defend yourself- not just for a school shooter situation. It can help your body stay fit and healthy, and it keeps you prepared in case you are in a situation you need out of- whether it’s sexual assault or in this case, a gun situation.
I never want to come off as dramatic, but the school shooting in Florida this past Valentines day has made me incredibly stressed. It seems as if every day in America we are hearing about a school shooting. This really could happen anywhere and the only person that can save you in this type of situation is yourself. This list isn’t very extensive, but it is very basic. If you are looking for more, educate yourself. United Locksmith is where I got the majority of this, but there are several other articles out there that hold information you may find better suits what you can do or handle. If anybody has more to add, please feel free.
