On February 14, 2018, Nikolas Cruz allegedly walked into his former high school with an AR-15 assault rifle and shot students and teachers, killing 17 and wounding many others.

          “As an American, we all need to realize this is not normal. We can’t accept this,” 17-year-old David tells Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode. “We have to take action so we prevent as many as possible from happening again. I don’t think it needs to be a political thing; I think it needs to be something about lives.”

          In the video above, Dr. Phil offers his thoughts on how we can come together as a community to find solutions and prevent tragedies.
