I guess we now know why the Broward County Sheriff is screaming so loudly about gun control.  He's desperate to keep the heat off of himself for the failures of his department.

Interesting that the former school resource officer is getting a lot better protection than he offered those school kids.


That ain't the half of it. Israel needs to resign!

Columbine was 20 yrs. ago and very little has been done toward problem.

We've offered suggestions but until the left wakes up nothing is going to change.

All political parties and 'we the people' all share in that failing.

I don't.

Kids in schools shouldn't be subjected to being mowed done just because some unstable person that can't even buy a beer legally can buy this sort of weapon. JMO.

1. He wasn't supposed to own the gun either.  But Broward County schools, local law enforcement, and the FBI all failed to charge him with anything.  If they had, his background check would not have went through with NICS.  

Read this:
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/02/did_the_progressive_broward_county_solution_cost_17_student_lives.html

2. So he couldn't buy a beer legally.  How is it then that teenagers always seem to have access to alcohol?  Certain drugs are illegal too...but people of all ages seem to be able to obtain them.

3. Kids in schools should be protected.  Mass shooters don't go to areas where they know armed people will oppose them.  They choose so called "gun free zones" instead.

4. You seem to want to blame Trump for everything that happens.  But you should keep in mind that Trump wants to fix NICS such that there is better integration between that system and mental health providers.



1) Plenty of blame to go around in this case. Ignored 'flags', reports. Obvious failures in how LEO responded. What good is an armed resource officer if they are going to 'hide' outdoors in the shrubs so to speak while the carnage goes on vs. engaging the shooter? Granted He was likely 'out armed'.
2) I agree if there's a will there is a way if someone wants to acquire 'forbidden' items, but one can only hope it would deter or slow as many occurrences perhaps. (This does not take into account my beliefs in the ROOT of the problem~child rearing. If left to do so themselves, odds are good they just may make a mess of the outcome)!
3) I can't agree arming a flock of teachers for a variety of reasons.
4) I blame way back. Columbine was 20 yrs. ago and very little has been done toward problem. All political parties and 'we the people' all share in that failing.
