MSNBC’s Ali Velshi asked a survivor of the Great Mills high school shooting in Maryland if there were “too many guns” Friday.
His response was clearly not what Velshi expected.
“Let me ask you, is it a gun culture problem?” Velshi asked. “Is it a violence problem? If guns weren’t as readily available–because kids will still get angry, and upset and want to lash out. Is the idea too many guns or is it something else?”
“I guess the idea is that some kids, I guess, they don’t speak up when they have problems inside,” survivor Vincent Giles said.
“So, nobody really knows when they’re going to lash out. But, you can’t really take guns away,” he added.
“I mean, you can take them away from the civilians, but ultimately, there are still going to be guns out there. There’s no real way to get them off the streets completely and get them out of the hands of people who don’t need them. And uh, you know, just nothing we can do about it really.”
