Former President Barack Obama spoke out about the heartbreaking mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead and around 15 students and teachers severely injured. 

His words showed his deepest sympathy and condolences for the heartbreaking incident. While he agrees that prayers are not enough, Obama's tweet reiterated his stance and desire to pass "long overdue, common sense" gun laws. 

While in office, Obama passed a bill to make it harder for people with mental illness to obtain a gun. The rule could have prevented more than 75,000 unfit people from easily having access to firearms if it was fully implemented. However, Trump secretly rolled-back on the regulations according to NBC.  

During the mass shooting, Trump's reactions where different and he did not mention gun laws at all. In a series of tweets, Trump said; 

Trump tweeted, that while he was sorry, students should have reported the shooter, Nikolas Cruz's odd behavior. 

Trump failed to mention gun laws or initiatives to keep schools and children safe. That did not stop students from being proactive and fighting for the laws they want to see come to pass. At South Broward High School, a school in South Florida protested gun violence and showed their support for Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Friday.  

More of this please.
