    5 Things We’ve Learned About The Parkland Shooting

    1. The Broward County Sheriff’s Department Was Ill-equipped

    2. The Sheriff’s Department Continues to Refuse Responsibility

    3. Obama Policies Hid the Real Threat

    4. School Officials Also Continue to Refuse Responsibility

    5. Schools Ignored Warnings about the Shooter


    Just after the shooting, there were a few news reports of a few students trying to vocalize the fact that the shooter had a history of mental instability, an obsession with firearms, and had publicly voiced his deranged plans to kill his fellow classmates. These concerns were pushed aside by much of the mainstream media, which flocked to Parkland to cover the story in favor of the more convenient narrative that more gun control would have discouraged the shooter. Eventually, attention on the families and their healing became the focus and the days before the shooter were all but forgotten.

    Superintendent Robert Runcie said the school district “has made no attempt to conceal information except when lawyers said it could not be released.” Following the shooting, the district’s law firm hired a contractor, the Collaborative Educational Network of Tallahassee, which did not assess security concerns, but simply analyzed whether Broward schools had satisfied the law in educating the shooter.

    The Sun Sentinel obtained and published an uncensored copy of their report and found what anyone paying attention could have probably predicted: “Cruz was deeply troubled; the district improperly withdrew support he needed; he asked for additional services; and the district bungled his request, leaving him spinning without help.”

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    So what do you think they (Obama, the state, the school) should have done differently?

    If I said that you idiots would call me a gun grabber.

    BTW, what you are describing would be very similar to Maryland’s red flag law. Although I am guessing you want the person put away as opposed taking his guns.
