Let me see if I have this right: The FBI was notified that Parkland, Fla., shooter Nikolas Cruiz had posted online that he wanted to be a school shooter. The Broward County Sheriff responded 37 times in six months to complaints about Cruz including that he threatened people with a gun but, they did nothing. Students at Parkland High School told the school that Cruz threatened to kill them as well as their parents and boyfriends but the school did nothing. The day of the shooting an armed Broward County Deputy was stationed at the high school as a resource officer but stayed outside during the shooting and did nothing.
Yet, we are supposed to believe the shooting was the fault of the NRA and every gun owner in America and we need more gun control? The ultimate gun control was in effect the day of the shooting in that guns were forbidden on school property. Did banning drugs work? Did banning whiskey work? Will banning pens stop forgery? No, no and no. Letís put the blame where it belongs on the shooter and government screwups.
