Government Continues To Fail Us
Article from the Daily Wire by Ben Shapiro.
On Thursday night, the American public learned two bombshell pieces of information regarding the Parkland, Florida mass shooting. First, we learned that the Broward County Sheriff’s Office was told in November that the Parkland shooter “could be a school shooter in the making” but deputies didn’t bother to write up a report; that report “came just weeks after a relative called urging BSO to seize his weapons.” Then, in even more shocking news, we learned that an armed school resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School sat outside and waited for four minutes during the six minute attack that ended in the deaths of 17 human beings.
We know that an armed officer was present during the shooting and did nothing — and that JROTC students showed far more courage.
And yet we are told that the solution to mass shootings is for law-abiding citizens to give moreauthority to the authorities that failed, and to turn over our only way of protecting ourselves?
Why in the world would a single law-abiding gun owner hand over his or her weapon to the same authorities that did nothing to protect the children of Parkland? Why would a single law-abiding gun owner turn over his or her capacity for self-defense to people who were incapable of defending children at every step of the way?

It was such a pretty day outside! Why would I want to go inside where someone is making such awful noises? I wanted to go home and see my family and my shift was almost over, now, would it make any sense to confront a shooter, I mean really, would you? Oh, the gun I had, that’s just for show, everybody knows that. I can’t tell you how sorry I am about the children (puts a bad mark on my service record). But really, someone was inside shooting, I didn’t want to be a target!!!! Neither did my fellow deputies, let the other county’s deputies take the chance.
