Brandon Minoff, a student at a Florida high school shooting on Wednesday, was interviewed by MSNBC's Brian Williams from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Williams asked the kid what he would do about school shooting if he were a lawmaker.
Minoff instantly replied, "gun-wise, I don't think there's any way to prevent it. You outlaw guns, just creates higher demand for it."
"So what was your reaction when you heard that it was him?" Williams asked.
"I wasn't surprised, but it was kind of unfortunate to hear," the high school senior answered.
"If you were a lawmaker, an adult in a decision-making position, how would you stop, do you think, the kind of thing that happened today? A kid who had been thrown out, comes back with a weapon, and takes out whatever grievance he's been walking around with in his head?" Williams asked.
"Gun-wise, I don't think there's any way to prevent it," Minoff said. "You outlaw guns, just creates higher demand for it."
"I think it has to do with mental health, though," he said. "If he's been expelled three different times, from three different schools, I think he should be helped out."
