Given the amount of shootings that are happening recently, I was not surprised. Of course, I’m devastated and a bit annoyed that the shootings keep happening, but it didn’t come off as a shock to me, and at this point, I’m just really ready for things to start changing, because the nature of our country isn’t doing anything to prevent these shootings, and they keep on happening.

I wasn’t as shocked by it [as compared to response to Parkland], I had a certain amount of sympathy for the students there and the teachers of course, but I wasn’t as surprised when I found out.

It was just kind of a sense of disappointment that this would happen so soon after something like Parkland.

I kind of wish I knew a little more about this one, because the motive behind the shooting was not as clear as it was [in Parkland].  Because that one was very clear-cut, and people knew about it beforehand. There wasn’t much about who did it, or why.

I was sad, definitely, because regardless of how many of these things happen, you can’t turn a blind eye to it.  But unfortunately, because of how many shootings have happened, I was desensitized to it. I was like, “Oh, just another shooting,” which is incredibly sad.

I was astonished that there was another school shooting that had gone on.  There was almost no news coverage of it at the time. So, I just found out through a bunch of friends talking about it.  I was really shocked there wasn’t more news on it.
