Students at Douglas High School weren’t surprised by the identity of the shooter who mercilessly gunned down innocent children on Wednesday. He was a former student that…
At least 17 people are dead in the mass shooting in Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, north of Miami. The shooter has now been identified as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a former student. At least 20 others are known to have been injured.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said that twelve of the victims were shot dead inside the school. He stated SWAT teams were still working to clear the school, which has an enrollment of approximately 3,000 students.
The shooting took place during an afternoon fire drill, something the former student would be familiar with. Oddly, there had been a fire drill that morning, indicating that the afternoon drill might have been an alarm pull by the shooter to force students into his target area and create chaos that would help him escape afterwards.
After students and the school staff heard what sounded like gunshots, just prior to dismissal, the school went on immediate lockdown. Cruz had been expelled for disciplinary reasons, which, combined with the fact that he was considered a threat for violence by his fellow students, should have prompted action by school and law enforcement officials.
The murderer was known to be a knife and gun freak, according to one fellow student, junior Matthew Walker. He says many predicted would someday come to their school and do what he did. He told reporters, “Honestly, a lot of people were saying that it was going to be him. A lot of people joked on the fact, saying he would be the one to shoot up the school, but, it turns out, you know, everyone predicted it. That’s crazy.”
He responds to a question as to whether the murderer was on the campus, saying, “Yeah, he was on the third floor, he knows the school layout. He knows where everyone would be at as of right now. He’s been to fire drills, he’s been to some fire drills. He’s prepared for this stuff.”
“He was going class to class just shooting at random kids,” a student said. “Everything he posts (on social media) is about weapons. It’s sick.”
Of course there is nothing wrong with having a healthy interest in guns or knives or both. There was nothing healthy about this individual. If the students knew the type of threat he presented, there’s a good chance some of the faculty or administration did as well. Why wasn’t this guy paid a visit by the FBI?
Once again an evil person chose a place where he knew there would be maximum casualties and no immediate response, a gun-free school where there were no armed guards or staff on site to offer resistance.
Liberals are already blaming the gun, as they always do, for the evil of an individual and for their own system that provided him with defenseless targets of his insanity. An armed faculty and staff, trained and proficient in the use of their weapons, would have been effective at reducing the casualty levels. The presence of a formidable defense might even have prevented Cruz from taking any action. As it was, there was nothing to stop him.
The American people are not going to give up their Second Amendment rights to protect themselves from a tyrannical government. The sooner that libtards in the education system recognize and accept that fact and allow for our students to be appropriately protected, the sooner these tragic events will come to a halt.
They ask how many lives will be sacrificed. That’s a question the left needs to answer by eliminating gun-free killing zones. The politicians are protected by armed guards in their buildings, why are children somehow less worthy, or less valuable than them? The murder of children is horrific and inexcusable. To create the environment where it can happen is likewise unjustifiable.
