Most recently, former NBA superstar and one of the best shooters of all time, Ray Allen, also went to his social media accounts to share a message about the importance of tackling the issues at hand and therefore help protect kids from these horrors. 

Allen is ashamed and disappointed in the government institutions that are not willing to protect children even though they have the power to make a change immediately. 

It's absolutely horrible what happened to those kids and their families, and no matter how you feel about the topic of carrying weapons legally, the reality is that a solution needs to be found before things get out of hand. Whether the US Congress will address these points soon remains to be seen, but the pressure is already immense on the government to finally look into a potential solution for a really complex issue.
