All the policies of that school and it's agreement with the police Dept, show those are what made it even possible for Cruz to have purchased the gun. He had done things that could have made his be arrested or more, but they were ignored, under those local policies.

Makes one wonder IF those same policies and the agreement kept the officers present from entering the building. What kind of "orders" did they have?

People don't like to think abut the kind of policies used in that school, nor talk about it. It is easy to rant on and on about needing more "laws", but when laws have been avoided as in that case, no one wants to talk about it.

If semi automatic weapons were banned, 17 kids are still alive.
If you truly cared about the lives of children you would advocate to change the driving age



33% of deaths among 13 to 19-year-olds in 2010 occurred in motor vehicle crashes.

16-year-olds have higher crash rates than drivers of any other age.

56% of teens said they talk on the phone while driving.

Statistics show that 16 and 17-year-old driver death rates increase with each additional passenger.

But you don't care about kids. You care about pushing a naritive.

Their blood is on your hands you monster!!!

So, is this a case of lax gun laws or failure to enforce existing ones?
The article is mostly bullshit. Several prior articles have pointed out that Florida DID NOT HAVE sufficiently strong laws or procedures for removing a mentally ill person's fire arms or for keeping them from buying them.

The rest of story is, there is NO PENALTY for not reporting someone to the feds so they can be put on the no guns list. We saw this during the Texas church shooting. Many agencies just don't bother, even when there are very legitimate reasons for reporting someone. A bill was introduced in congress a few weeks after the Texas shooting, aimed at incentivizing agencies to accurately and timely make their reports, but the NRA and it's minions in congress, the GOP, quickly gave it the death penalty and it went the way of the dodo.

Wrong, the school, and a sheriffs deputy, saw he danger and higher ups shot down the idea of getting him help, and having him institutionalized for evaluation.

I stopped reading at "Most of the bill is fine, but the age limit increase is grossly unconstitutional."

There is no reasoning possible reasoning that can change the science of our brains not being fully developed until around age 25 and teenagers being more likely to take risks. A good democracy with good laws must base those laws on science.

We should write thank you letters to Dicks, Walmart, Fred Meyer and Bi-Mart for agreeing to not sell guns to persons below age 21.
