Parkland school shooting: The day after

Been interesting tracking coverage of the Florida school shooting.

Seems "everyone" at the school pegged the suspect as a potential school shooter, but no one did anything.

The FBI was given the suspected shooter's name five months ago after a post proclaiming intent to become a "professional school shooter." Apparently the FBI shrugged.

Local newspaper in Florida has raised questions about whether the targeted high school's armed school resource officer was on campus at the time of the shooting. There's speculation the deputy may have been off on the day of the shooting, or called to another assignment off-campus, or been out running errands. Or something.

It seemed that when the narrative of the school shooting began to shift to government or bureaucratic failures where the shooting might have been prevented, mainstream media attempted to divert to claims that the shooter was part of some "white nationalist" organisation. But even this seemed to fall apart by day's end.

Despite what may be a series of bureaucratic bumbles and a media misstep, progressives and their lapdog media are again pounding the drum for more gun control. This amounts to a call for law abiding citizens to surrender more rights and freedoms in exchange for more reliance on sloppy government bureaucrats for our safety and the safety of our loved ones.

Do they really think we're that stupid?
