The FBI had multiple reports about the shooter in Parkland, FL. They failed to act.
The first family the shooter lived with after his parents died told authorities the shooter had pointed a gun at someone's head and made threats. The authorities did nothing.
The police failed those kids.
The resource officer stationed at the school with a gun waiting for four minutes before acting.
The security feed of what was happening wound up having a 26 minute delay. When the police entered to stop the shooter, the carnage was already complete and the shooter was gone. But he was still shooting on the security feed.
Repeatedly, adults in authority positions who could have intervened failed to do so. The shooter in Sutherland Springs, TX was able to purchase a gun because bureaucrats failed to add necessary data to a computer. The shooter in Parkland, FL was able to buy a gun because bureaucrats and authority figures failed to process necessary data. He could have been stopped. He could have been stopped from buying a gun. He could have been stopped at the school house door. He could have been stopped by security. Time and time again the adults failed. It is no wonder the left wants us to listen to the kids since the adults screwed up so badly.
What did not screw up was the gun laws. Had the authorities acted, the laws would have worked. The laws can only be as good as the people. But now we are left with a deep irony. Because all the authorities failed to act, the authorities would have us now ban guns so that people will be unable to defend themselves when the authority figures screw up again.
We don't need better gun laws. We need better adults.
