Since the tragic shooting in Parkland, Florida over a month ago gun control activists have been working overtime to convince Americans into handing over their guns. These liberal gun grabbers are fully aware that liberty-minded people won’t give up their rights willingly which is why they have employed young people to tug at the heartstrings of the public. For weeks, we have seen the smug faces of gun control student activists, and survivors of the horrific shooting, David Hogg, and Emma Gonzalez plastered all over the media blaming guns and demanding that politicians enforce stricter laws to stop future school shootings. However, not every survivor of the terrifying Parkland shooting feels the same way and is tired of the lies being spread by his classmates on mainstream media news night after night, and is now setting the record straight once and for all.
- Gun control student activists Emma Gonzalez (left) and David Hogg (right) have been working tirelessly to strip Americans of their gun rights since the Parkland shooting.
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the shooting that occurred in Parkland, Florida was a tragedy that never should have happened, and not for reasons the left would lead you to believe. For over a month, liberal politicians have been shouting from the rooftops that if there was more gun control that school shootings would not happen, but that is hardly the truth. In fact, not one new gun law would have prevented Nikolas Cruz from opening fire in that high school killing 17 innocent people. As it so happens, the only thing that would have stopped Cruz from destroying families lives that day was the Broward County Sherriff’s office, but as we know, now they did nothing.
As Cruz stormed through the halls of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, deputy, Scott Peterson cowardly hid from the deranged gunman instead of stopping him. Of course, the liberal politicians and the gun-grabbing teens are glossing over that fact, but Kyle Kashuv another teen who survived the shooting is not and is doing his best to counter the lies being spread.
In a recent interview on Face the Nation, Kashuv took the false narrative of blaming the guns to the task, saying that the real people to blame would be the cowards of Broward County, and he could not be more correct.
Here is more from Breitbart:
‘That deputy, Scot Peterson, can allegedly be seen on surveillance video arriving at building 12 only to remain outside while the sound of gunfire continued on the inside. Sheriff Scott Israel called out Peterson for not going into the building and Peterson resigned rather than face suspension.
But further reports were not kind to Israel either, and the behavior of deputies on scene were called into question as well.
None of this was lost on Kashuv, who bemoaned the fact that not one protester in the student march for gun control carried signs calling out Sheriff Israel.
He transitioned to the topic of Sheriff Israel while explaining why a ban on “assault weapons” and/or “high capacity magazines” would not end school shootings. He said:
That won’t solve the issue. What we’ve seen is that there are certain things such as having — enforcing the regulation that’s currently in law. I mean we’ve seen on so many different levels that the cowards of Broward (ph) failed, the FBI failed, Sheriff Scott Israel failed. So many different multi-layered levels failed in Parkland. And it’s absolutely reprehensible that I didn’t see one single poster yesterday at the march that said f the NRA that — no, sorry, that said f Sheriff Scott Israel.
He went on to point to armed individuals as part of the solution to school shootings. In making his case, he mentioned the good guy with a gun who shot at the Maryland school attacker on March 20, ushering in the end of the incident. He praised a newly passed law — signed on March 9 by Gov. Rick Scott (R) — which will allow certain Floridians to get training to carry guns on campus for school safety.
Kashuv said, “Something called the Marshal Program, which was registered and implemented in Florida and which would allow properly trained officers and veterans, and unemployment veterans, to acquire the training to protect our school because we’ve seen in Maryland that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.’
Host Margaret interrupted as Kashuv spoke, saying, “You want — you would have liked more armed guards at the school?”
Absolutely. I mean we saw it in Maryland. He stopped the shooter. He did his job. And had the cowards of Broward done their job, I think that the count in Parkland would have been much lower. We saw that in Maryland that a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun. The only way to stop an active shooter on campus is to have another person to eliminate him.”
And, to be honest, Kashuv’s last statement is 100% spot on.
You see, the left cannot stand when their twisted logic is publically proven to be wrong which is why you won’t see Kashuv in the spotlight of this debate. Hogg and Gonzalez will continually be thrust front and center since they tug at the heartstrings of Americans who are tired and weary from all the fighting between the political parties. No one wants to see young people being murdered in their schools, but instead of blaming inanimate objects for the carnage how about placing the blame where it lies, and that is on the person who pulled the trigger. No amount of new gun laws will prevent a future tragedy, but empowering our teachers to protect our youth and ending gun free zones is a step in the right direction.
