Nashville Shooter Legally Purchased Seven Firearms

The shooter, Audrey Hale, was under care for an emotional disorder and legally purchased seven firearms, including an AR-style rifle, which she used in the attack, according to a published news report in CNN.

Police have revealed that the attack was pre-planned, and the shooter had detailed maps of the school, writings related to the shooting, and had scouted a second possible attack location in Nashville.

Hale’s parents claimed that they only knew about one gun purchase, but investigators found six more firearms in her home. Hale’s childhood friend also received disturbing messages from her just before the attack.

Mass Attack Marks the 19th Shooting

In a published article in Reuters, the attack marks the 19th shooting at a school or university so far in 2023 that left at least one person wounded, and it is the deadliest US school shooting in nearly a year, since the May attack in Uvalde, Texas, left 21 dead.

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee, who lost a close family friend in the shooting, said that “all of Tennessee was hurt yesterday, but some parents woke up without children, children woke up without parents and without teachers, and spouses woke up without their loved ones.”

The incident has sparked concern about gun control in the US, as the nation continues to experience a string of mass shootings. Gun control advocates are calling for stricter gun laws, while gun rights proponents argue that it’s a mental health issue rather than a gun issue. However, with each new tragedy, the debate over gun control continues to intensify.
