NRA’s Loesch on FL Shooting: Blame Broward County Sheriff’s ‘Abdication of Duty,’ Not Gun Owners

The focus should not be on gun control but instead on the Broward County, FL Sheriff’s Department.

There has been a lot of mixed emotions about gun control in America in the last week.

Many feel after last weeks mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, it was a grouping of many failures among the local authorities, including law enforcement and other administrators. Some even feel that the Broward Sheriff Scott Israel should resign after his failures to act accordingly.

Now the focus is on taking away our Second Amendment rights and to rely on security and the police force instead.. Well, that has proven to not work. Having armed teachers honestly sounds a lot safer.

Reported by breitbart:

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said the focus should not be on gun control but instead on the Broward County, FL Sheriff’s Department for its actions leading up to and during the Parkland school shooting.

Loesch said, “Can we look at what could have prevented this? That firearm didn’t walk itself into the school. An individual who was allowed to go unchecked by the Broward County Sheriff’s office allowed that firearm to go into the school. It’s not the fault nor are 5 million law-abiding Americans culpable for this.”

She added, “I wish that as much attention were given to the Broward County Sheriff and their abdication of duty as trying to blame five million innocent, law-abiding gun owners all across the country.”


An incident report dated November 30, 2017 reads: “Caller advised subject Nikolas Cruz is collecting guns and knives. Cruz wants to join the army. Concerned he will kill himself one day and believes he could be a school shooter in the making. Caller advised Cruz was no longer living at the listed Parkland address and is now living [sic] Lake Worth, Fl. Believes the weapons are kept at a friends [sic] house at an unknown location.”

Police officers on the scene during the mass shooting — including Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, who was assigned to the school to provide security — refused to engage Cruz, said Malkin:

Just tonight, the Broward County sheriff’s Twitter account was doing more CYA, covering themselves, by retweeting a statement from the Coral Springs Police Department from which we got all of the information about the other sheriff’s deputies besides Scott Peterson who had just stood there doing nothing.
