There are 17 dead Floridians today because a deranged gunman decided to enter a high school and go on a shooting rampage with an AR-15 gun Wednesday.

More information on Nikolas Cruz is sure to emerge in the days to come, but right now reports show the 19-year-old has a violent background and was mentally unstable.

In addition to being expelled from school, Cruz used his social media accounts to promote violence and provide telling signs he would carry out the sort of massacre he did on Valentine’s Day.

Do you believe a person should be able to buy a gun if they have any reported case of mental health issues in the past or present?
