Local and federal authorities dropped the ball on the Parkland shooter. They are partially responsible for what happened. The NRA had nothing to do with it, but that’s who liberals want to blame. The Daily Beast recently showed just how backwards the left’s thinking is on this.
Here’s an excerpt from The Daily Beast: A Push For Gun Control Legislation Appears Dead In Congress. Again. Meaningful reform on guns or “school safety” appears to be nearing a quiet death, just weeks after demands for action peaked following the Parkland shooting.
Sources on Capitol Hill now universally say they do not expect legislation—even the narrowed down variety—to pass, while senior officials at the White House appear committed to spotlighting the influence they suggest violent video games are having on our nation’s youth.
Rising fears that the main Senate committee hearing dedicated to the Parkland shooting will become a session to brow-beat the FBI and local law enforcement and not discuss gun measures. https://t.co/p8lQxn7vqH

Frustration with the inertia bubbled over this week, sparking a round of finger-pointing over who exactly and which party is at fault. But the outcome should not have caught anyone by surprise. Doing nothing in the aftermath of a prior mass-shooting is a right of passage for Congress…
“Senate Republicans haven’t devoted one second to the gun safety debate on the Senate floor,” said Matt House, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s top spokesman. “That fact says everything about their willingness to buck the NRA and get something real done.” The NRA is not responsible. They had nothing to do with the shooting. The left is just trying to exploit the shooting for politics.
