via Could Israeli-style gun laws prevent mass shootings in the US?

The recent murderous rampage by a 19-year-old man in a Parkland High School in Florida struck close to home for many in Israel. The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has a large Jewish population and five of the 17 fatalities were Jews. The outspoken Parkland police chief Scott Israel is the first Jewish sheriff ever elected to serve in Florida. In addition, in the wake of the massacre, voices have been heard in the US suggesting that America adopt Israeli gun safety policies.

Former Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was in Israel at the time of the Parkland attack. He tweeted: “Just waking up in Israel to news of heartbreaking school shooting in FL …Reminded that Israel pretty much eliminated it by placing highly trained people strategically to spot the one common thread–not the weapon, but a person with intent. #PrayForParkland”
