On December 14, 2012, there was another mass shooting in the United States of America.
This disaster happened just three days after masked gunman Jacob Roberts opened fire in a busy Oregon mall, killing two before turning the gun on himself.
Twenty children and six adult died in the incident at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Eighteen children died in the school while another two students died later in a hospital.
The shooter was identified as a 20 years old man named Adam Lanza.
He first killed his mother, Nancy Lanza (who was a teacher teaching in the school) at their house before he drove to Sandy Hook Elementary.
He left his house armed with at least two semi automatic handguns, a Glock and a Sig Sauer, and a semi automatic rifle and wearing a bullet proof vest
After the incident happen, all the schools in the state were lock down.
It is the second worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
The worst was the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007 when 32 were killed before the shooter turned the gun on himself.
I wonder why there are too much mass shooting in the United States.
And I wonder why people did this kind of thing because the shooters won’t be gaining anything good from killing other people.
I think the U.S. should have better security for their people especially the children and the government can’t let people buy guns freely any more because this could happen again and again when guns are easily available.
It is sad because there had been lots of mass shootings in U.S. schools before.
I’m so sad and sorry to the victims and their families.
