Josh Gad Knew One of the Florida High School Shooting Victims, Mourns the Senseless Tragedy

Josh Gad revealed on Twitter this morning that his friend’s son passed away from a gunshot wound he sustained during the tragic school shooting that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on Wednesday (February 14).

“I am so angry tonight. I am so sad. I’m putting my phone down because we are debating sensible gun laws again. A child of one of our friend’s has a bullet in his chest & is critical condition because a 19 year old had access to a military weapon. Pretend it’s normal. It’s not,” Josh posted last night.

This morning, he updated, “Last night, I received a text while I slept that our friend’s son passed away from his gun shot wound. My grief for this family and the many others knows no bounds. I’m so sorry this happened. I’m so sorry our leaders are worthless. I’m so sorry we are bound to repeat this again.”

Our thoughts are with those affected by this horrible act of violence.

    What about the children killed by a drunk driver? The gun did not go by itself and kill anyone, it was a choice made by a person who should have already been in a mental facility, just as a drunk makes the choice to get behind the wheel. What about the shooting deaths everyday in Chicago? They have strict gun laws. When a person has an evil intent, they will find a way.

    But these people that “should have already been in a mental facility” now have easier access to guns due to a bill Trump signed last February. Our leaders are completely worthless.
