I'm furious that these shootings continue, these children are innocent, rifles should not be easily available to all. This is my hometown, a small community of less than 20,000. I never imagined this would happen to especially to loved ones. Not all the facts have been released yet all we can do is pray hard for our country, state, schools and especially the families of all.”
