This shooting in Texas recalls that of the elementary school in Sandy Hook, Connecticut. On December 14, 2012, a 20-year-old madman killed 27 people, including twenty children aged 6 and 7, before committing suicide.
Chris Murphy, a Democratic senator from this state in the northeastern United States, “begged” his elected colleagues on Tuesday to act, assuring that these tragedies were not “inevitable”. “It only happens in this country, and nowhere else. In no other country do children go to school thinking they might get shot.”
