Law enforcement failed 42 times to do anything about the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School murderer. The school failed to do anything about him. DCF failed, despite an apparent adjudication of mental incompetence. In turn, someone in government neglected to report him to NICS, so he was able to buy a gun from an FFL.
The Coward County Sheriff’s Office ignored an impassioned plea from a family member. (Several, really, including one from the suspect himself.)
The FBI ignored TWO reports of concern about the shooter-to-be. One of those reports was very detailed; including that the suspect was armed and wanted to shoot up his former school. The other report was that the suspect wanted to be a famous school shooter.
Coward County Sheriff’s deputies… cowered outside, and let the shooter kill. (Peterson now claims that he heard shots, but thought they came from outside, therefore he hid… outside. Ignoring screaming kids pouring out of the building.)
So you blame…
The rifle. And every honest gun owner in the country who didn’t commit the crime.
There are an estimated 16,000,000 AR-pattern rifles alone in America. The Parkland shooter used one of those, which government should have prevented him having in the first place.
There are at least 265,000,000 firearm of all types in America. Some estimates reach 750,000,000.
Your shooter used one.
You want “assault weapons” banned. Yet you have no constitutionally specific definition of such. As a result honest gun owners reasonably wonder if you plan to take them all.
Estimates of gun owners range from 55,000,000 to over 120,000,000.
Your shooter was one PROHIBITED PERSON.
But you blame all gun owners — whom, I repeat, didn’t do it — for the criminal acts of one prohibited person whom the government allowed to kill. You negligently throw out the term “NRA” as shorthand for all gun owners and accuse us of murder, which sounds like slander/libel to me.
As many as 120,000,000 honest people armed with as much as 750,000,000 small arms are watching you accuse and threaten us; watching you attempt to sic the forces of government on us for crimes we did not commit, in a mass 18 U.S. Code § 241 conspiracy against constitutionally-protected human/civil rights.*
“Forces of government” seemingly too incompetent to stop one crazed killer.
Is it wise to piss off that many armed people with only the Browardly backing of government?
Try it. Try us.
* What? You believed CNN when they told you only “NRA” money keeps politicians from doing YOUR bidding? No, it’s 55,000,000 to 120,000,000 VOTERS who will — and have in past — toss their oathbreaking posteriors out of office.
