I’m not going to comment too much on yesterday’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School because details are still coming out.
There are three bits of information that we have learned that are key.
The FBI was warned that a YouTube user with the name Nicholas Cruz left a comment on a video saying “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.”
Cruz was expelled from the school previously and was banned from coming onto campus with a backpack because of “fears that he would attack other students.” His disciplinary problems stretch back to the 8th grade.
Cruz’s problems were so well known that “everyone predicted” that he would be a school shooter.

This situation seems very similar to that of Jared Lee Loughner, where there was red flag after red flag that he would do something like this but no agency with any authority was involved enough to prevent it.
Even the Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, put up some red flags that he was up to no good.
Apparently our bureaucracy has butterfingers.
After Loughner and Cruz, THIS should become a priority.
To the rabid anti-gunners of America, the problem is the NRA and their donations.

Blame was laid at the feet of NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch.

Her humanity, and that of all Republicans, was questioned.
She's one of those lizard people who loves to be hated.
You know, Republicans.

Remember, if you are not a Democrat, you are a subhuman untermensch.
She had to be human first… She doesn't qualify

Then there is the call for collective punishment.
We have to elect candidates that are not funded by the NRA in November. We have an opportunity to elect candidates who won’t allow kids to go to school and get shot. It is disgusting how many times this has happened and Republicans do nothing. You all have blood on your hands.

Dems have to ignore the rules and start "SCREAMING" on the floors of Congress. Let them be disciplined, let them be sanctioned. Fuck this. Kids are dying. Drastic actions are necessary. Fuck @DLoesch, fuck the NRA. Every child who dies should require an NRA staff to go to prison.

If you want to understand why the media in the United States was fawning all over Kim Jong Un’s sister, this is why.
There is no problem the far left has found in which the solution was something other than take everybody who disagrees and send them to a gulag.
Are people poor? Eat the rich.
Do people commit murder? Send the law abiding gun owners to prison.
If only they could imprison or execute enough people, they could usher in Utopia.
To them, every mass shooting is another chance to call for that.
