US School Massacre by Zhi Gang

News Review:
Last Friday, there was a report of a massacre in USA at a school in Connecticut. Around 20 children were left dead around the age of six and seven, according to an official list of the the dead. Six adults who were all women were killed by the gunman, name Adam Lanza in media reports. On the morning, Nancy Lanza was killed by Adam Lanza himself who later proceeded to the school at around 9.30am. At that time, Lanza forced his way into the school. The massacre took place in 2 rooms and only lasted for a few minutes before the gunman killed himself. The victims were killed by a high-powered rifle. The teachers were quick-witted and locked the doors while ordering students to huddle in  corner or hide in cupboards as shots echoed through the building. Among the victims, one of them was lucky to survived the ordeal as the bullets from the rifle were designed in a fashion that the energy is deposited in the tissue and stays in. The attack at Newtown is the second deadliest shooting attack at a US school or university, after the Virginia Tech killings of 2007, which left 32 people dead and many injured.
I think that USA should have controls over the guns. Although I feel that THE gun is a good source of protection for one's live, it is also a threat. There have been many reports in US on Deadly Mass Shootings for example the Columbine High School Massacre which took place in 1999 by 2 students who killed 13 students and injured 20 of them. Hence, I feel that there is a great need for the US government to have a control over the guns to prevent such Deadly Shootings from happening. These THIS will let the peoples' to be at ease and would not worry of ABOUT such Mass Shootings from happening.
