Florida school massacre, just a gun control issue?

This video from the USA says about itself:

Gun Control will Not Cure a Society that Produces Monstrous Behavior

24 February 2018

Historian Gerald Horne and host Paul Jay agree – while strong gun control is necessary, it’s not enough to keep schools and communities safe; we must change the unequal and decaying society that produces so much psychosis.

  1. Dear Friends and Activists,

    The first thing everyone needs to understand about assault weapons is
    that they are NOT guns, as most people think of guns. They are
    something more like missile launchers, with projectiles that
    essentially explode in a victim’s body, leaving nothing behind of
    vital organs but unrecognizable shreds, exit wounds as big as an
    orange. If one hits one of your vital organs there is absolutely
    nothing that can be done to save you. They are essentially airborne
    anti-personnel mines.

    This is because the muzzle velocity of an AR15 is THREE times that of
    a “gun” like a 9mm. Assault weapons have absolutely no application in
    hunting, unless you are into pulled deer meat, or shredded trophies.
    Their only purpose is to murder as many people as fast as possible.
    They are a self evident and existential threat to public health and
    MUST be taken off our streets.

    Just put an armed police officer in every school says the NRA, or arm
    a bunch of teachers with “concealed” hand guns, while Trump is good
    for nothing but parroting their talking points. Donnie wanna cracker?
    Even teachers who ARE former marines are saying gun toting teachers
    is a lunatic idea. It is a full time job alone, 52 weeks a year, to
    be trained to be combat ready, they say.

    Because guess what, the school in Parkland, FL HAD a real trained
    police deputy on duty, and he hid behind his car when he heard the
    assault weapons fire. A real trained police officer was not
    interested in confronting someone with an assault weapon. He knew
    that sound. He knew what was going on. And he was not interested in
    committing suicide.

    Trump wants to offer teachers a “bonus” for basically committing
    suicide, cause that’s what is comes down to as long as assault
    weapons are out there in civilian hands. Of course, three teachers in
    Parkland committed suicide anyway, taking assault weapon projectiles
    for their own students, to try to save them.

    It’s not just a question of automatic vs. semi-automatic. Yes, fully
    automatic assault weapons are even worse, but semi-automatic assault
    weapons are just as horrific in terms of the carnage of the wounds
    they cause. And of course as long as bump stocks are out there even
    that thin dividing line blurs.

    Some argue it’s hard to define what to ban and what not to ban. Not
    so. Muzzle velocity alone can determine what is and what is not
    appropriate in civilian hands. This ought to be easy. Here’s an idea,
    buy back all the assault weapons and give them to the real military,
    and we can save a bunch on our defense budget.

    So no, we are not trying to take away everyone’s guns, as the
    irrational paranoids at the NRA would have people believe, though
    even regular guns need to be regulated like the still lethal weapons
    they are. But get the assault weapons off the street? Absolutely.
    This is not about keeping and bearing arms. This is about keeping and
    bearing mass murder.

    The right not to be mass murdered is inalienable. The right to play
    with assault weapons like they’re sex toys is not. We say, “People
    With Guns Kill More Than People Without Guns.” You can too.
