Florida School Shooting Survivor Delaney Tarr Gives Powerful Speech


Delaney Tarr spoke out against the government and their policies with gun control after surviving the Florida school shooting last Wednesday.

Delaney Tarr is one of the many survivors of last week’s school shooting that is speaking out against the government and their regulations with gun control. In her speech, which can be seen on CNN, Tarr says, “We have heard enough. We have heard enough of ‘We are so strong, so powerful,’ because that is not why we are here today. We are not here to be patted on the back. We are not here to be told that we are doing so great and that we are doing so much, because we know what we are doing and we’re doing it for a reason.” You can watch the full speech below.

Last Wednesday on February 14th, a football coach, an athletic director, and young, eager students were killed when a 19-year-old opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The shooting has sparked major discussion over the policies regarding gun control in our country.
