“He always had guns on him,” a former classmate said of Nikolas Cruz, who had a history of problems. “Everyone predicted it…” except Trump, the NRA, the Republicans and the Gun Lobby who didn’t “predict” but rather counted on the shooter to buy their products.
“We’ve begun to dissect the social media he was on,” Israel (Broward County Sheriff) added. “Some of the things are very disturbing.” Not so disturbing that this latest NRA-sponsored killer couldn’t get military weapons in “pro-gun” GOP/NRA FLA.
The NRA-Gun Lobby has made mass shooting “normal” and America disgusting. The NRA tally begins Aug 1, 1966, when a sniper fired on passersby from the observation deck. So far 1,077 have died in NRA violence from nearly every race, religion and socioeconomic background from the unborn to the elderly.
“It is a day you pray every day you don’t have to see,” Robert Runcie, the superintendent of Broward County Public Schools, told reporters.
Sorry, Mr. Runcie, but if you don’t like days like this don’t pray but rather vote against the NRA/GOP Gun Lobby killers and elect SANE Democrats in 2018 and 2020.
Trump is always sickening but today this NRA Lickspittle was a vile hypocrite tweeting: “My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.”
FLA pro-guns-for-everyone-for-any-reason Gov. Rick Scott (R) said he had been briefed by the Broward County sheriff… then maybe he called the NRA and solicited another contribution in dark money for his pacs.
Thanks to the NRA, the Gun Lobby and the Republican Party the FLA gunman had “countless magazines” and an AR-15 rifle instead of a single shot hunting rifle that – just maybe – the 2nd Amendment might allow in a sane country.
Let’s call it what it is: The FLA shooting was the latest in a long line of violent NRA, GOP, Gun Lobby-sponsored attacks for profit and power that have shattered the peace inside schools, movie theaters, churches, offices and other public places so gun manufacturers can become billionaires.
The NRA, GOP, Gun Lobby have turned murderers into one-man terror armies.
