    Update -17 dead so far

    There are "numerous fatalities" and at least 14 people have been injured at a Florida high school after a shooting on Valentine's Day, authorities say.

    Video footage from inside one of the classrooms, can hear the shots being fired

    AS many as seven people have been killed after another mass shooting at a US high school.

    Many others were injured when an assailant in a gas mask opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

    The shooter, identified as 19-year-old former student Nicolas Cruz, reportedly pulled the fire alarm before gunning down students as they fled from the building.

    Police responded to first reports around 2.30pm local time on Wednesday (6.30am Thursday AEDT).

    There were differing reports of the number of injured. AP reported at least 14. Al Boe News said at least 20. Local media stated there could be as many as 50.

    The Miami Herald reported that Cruz had been identified as a potential threat to the school, according to a law enforcement source. Jim Gard, a maths teacher at the high school, told the newspaper that Cruz had been in his class last year. He said: ‘We were told last year that he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him. ‘There were problems with him last year threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus.’

    Shouldn't mass shooting in the USA just be a sticky at this point?

    The shooting was in Florida, not Queensland.

    It's sad watching the footage. A young girl sitting there, terrified. That could be my daughter. But it isn't. It isn't because I live in a country that isn't desperate to justify their erotic fixation with guns. So, at a macro level, they made their bed. At a micro level, there's a young girl sitting there, terrified.

    Looks like the kind of guy that ought to be given at AR-15 immediately. No background check needed in this case.

    The politicians should just re-tweet what they’ve already tweeted in the past

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families

    Now is not the right time to debate gun control

    Etc.

    Gun culture is so ingrained into American society, that nothing will ever change. It is too late for anything positive to happen in this regard. Gun loving Americans keep on referring to their belief in the 2nd amendment of the constitution. That they are entitled to bear arms. It is easy to place today’s meaning on what was written around 240 years ago when times were so different. The founding fathers must be turning in their graves as they see how people of today are interpreting what they wrote.

    What do bullets cost? Perhaps making them prohibitively expensive would knock out some of these mass shooting occurrences without removing the right to bear arms that many cling to regardless of what happens as a result..

    Fixing a high set price would just create an even bigger black market. People would panic buy every single bullet before said law was passed.
