After most school or mass shootings, the American people are looking for someone or something to blame for allowing the tragedy to happen. In Las Vegas, most of the blame was put on bump-fire stocks. In Southerland Springs, a large part of the blame was placed on insufficient gun control laws.
After everything we’ve been hearing, seeing and reading for the past two weeks, it seems that many people are blaming many different things for the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Some blame lack of gun control laws, some blame missed warning signs and other blame the inaction on the part of the deputy at the scene.
(Great American Politics) – It’s been nearly two weeks since the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The media has been filled with people from many walks of life, all pointing fingers of blame for the shooting. Students, carefully selected, but not necessarily representing all students, have been blaming guns and the lack of gun control.
CNN carefully scripted a townhall with prepared questions they handed out to only the students they chose and then used this to push for more state and federal gun control laws. Even though CNN denies the townhall was scripted and prejudiced, it needs to be noted that one student said he had planned to participate, but changed his mind after being handed a list of questions CNN wanted the students to ask. Another student and her father spoke out that CNN was screening students so as to only get the ones that agreed with their anti-gun agenda.
Legislators in Florida rushed to their hallowed chambers and hastily wrote some gun control bills to introduce. They wanted to raise the minimum age for purchasing a gun, along with banning bump-fire stocks and all semi-automatic weapons. Even Florida’s Republican Governor, Rick Scott, supported more gun control bills…
Personally, I blame a Godless society, an educational system that teaches survival of the fittest and do things your way, the FBI and sheriff’s department for not taking appropriate action with all of the tips and warnings they received, the violent entertainment that is so popular and the inaction of the deputy at the scene.
