His fucking campaign motto is Safer, Stronger. What a tiny, tone deaf, thirsty piece of shit.

I live less than a mile away from the school. The kids in my neighborhood walk there.

I also lived 1/2 a mile from Virginia Tech when that place was shot up.

The school where my daughter graduated from this year had a shooting threat last week. Luckily the school was closed due to snow and they arrested him before he did anything.

If my son did not go to a special school this is where he would be going.

Re: School Shooting in Florida (Now Is Not The Time To Talk About Gun Control!)

poignant verse of a song by a band from Florida...

Hand guns are made for killin'
They ain't no good for nothin' else
And if you like to drink your whiskey
You might even shoot yourself
So why don't we dump 'em, people
To the bottom of the sea
Before some ol' fool come around here
Wanna shoot either you or me

Pretty soon everyone will know a local school that's been shot up

12 school shooting incidents have occurred in the U.S. so far in 2018
Since 2013, there have been nearly 300 school shootings in the U.S. That's an average of about one a week.

Seven weeks into 2018 and there have already been 12 school shootings across the United States.

The national ban that the NRA supported but was never implemented?

So who's fault was that. And why haven't states taken up the issue by now?

They don't have to wait for Congress you know. Oh wait. That would require work.

Sure is easy for states to pass new tax laws, however.

But once again, the objective is clear: it's just politics. And those politicians who are for more gun control, are just playing a game, apathetic to people who suffer from their inaction.

Didn't we have a shooting in LA schools recently due to an "accident"? How did a weapon get by security in a Liberal city, sponsored by Liberal politicians?

Even a metal detector would have caught it, but no, the politicians in that district didn't want kids to feel "intimidated" and so they had this insane random check that barely anyone gets subject to a search.

Once again. Just politics.

So it really is “all or nothing”? I guess it wouldn’t be worth having LESS tragedies. Shame

Besides Australia put in gun control and now have had zero mass shootings. Yes they still have tragedies like murder. And?

The shooter's name is Nikolas Cruz, so get ready for Trump to go nuts with "build that wall." Again.

It's all over social media. "Was he ILLEGAL?? Was he a DREAMER?? What about the PARENTS??"

This is South Florida. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is 10 minutes north of my home. Having a Hispanic last name in South Florida, MOST LIKELY, means you are either (1) Cuban/Cuban-American, which means you were born here or your parents came over fleeing Castro and given immediate protected status, or (2) Puerto Rican, which means you're an American citizen.

Most likely. We don't know who this man is, his background, his status, and in the end it doesn't fucking matter anyhow.
