    It must be exhausting. The idea that everyone is out to get you is classically thought of as extreme paranoia. However, some people probably do have some grounds to be concerned about their safety. After all, there are those in the world who receive death threats by the dozens. But even one death threat is enough to make anyone concerned. It doesn’t help when you go out of your way to piss people off, either. Perhaps that’s why anti-gun activist and Parkland kid Emma Gonzalez decided to admit that she’s terrified someone with a gun sticker on their car will...

    Parkland survivor: America deserves better than 'privileged white boy who’s spent his whole life over-drinking' Parkland, Fla., shooting survivor Emma González took to Twitter Friday to urge Americans to call their senators to oppose Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. She used her platform of 1.6 million followers to argue that America "deserves more than a privileged white boy who’s spent his whole life over-drinking," slamming the performance of President Trump's second high court pick in a hearing the day before. González's comments come after a heated hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday concerning Christine Blasey...

  • Nikolas Cruz’s birth mom had a violent, criminal past. Could it help keep him off Death Row?

    Miami Herald ^ | 9/5/18 | Carol Marbin Miller And Nicholas Nehamas
    Nikolas Cruz had two mothers: his birth mom, who gave him life, an almond-shaped head and auburn hair — and his adoptive mom, who gave him all the advantages of an upscale, suburban upbringing. His birth mother, Brenda Woodard, was sometimes homeless, and panhandled for money on a highway exit ramp. His adoptive mother, Lynda Cruz, stayed home to manage a 4,500-square-foot, five-bedroom house in the suburbs, with a two-car garage and a sprawling yard. A career criminal, Woodard’s 28 arrests include a 2010 charge for beating a companion with a tire iron; she also threatened to burn the friend’s...

    On September 5 gun control activist David Hogg suggested AR-15s cannot be used for self-defense because they shoot further than handguns. He made this suggestion via a tweet which he sent in response Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony that AR-15s and other semiautomatic rifles are used for “self-defense.” Kavanaugh’s full statement was that “handguns and semi-automatic rifles are weapons used for hunting and for self-defense.” But Hogg isolated the words “self-defense” and tried to make a point: David Hogg ✔ @davidhogg111 The effective range of an AR-15 is 1600 feet for comparison your typical handgun is 75 feet if...

    A survivor of the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida, ripped Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Saturday after he complained about an upcoming Neil Armstrong biopic for failing to include the astronaut planting an American flag on the moon. Sarah Chadwick, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, tweeted at the senator in response to his comment slamming the film’s omission as “total lunacy.” “Where was this energy from you when 17 people [were] killed at my school?” she tweeted, alongside the senator's comment. The tweet quickly went viral, garnering more than 3,500 retweets and 19,000 “likes” in...

    The FBI's quest to protect the public - a job it bungled in the case of the Parkland school shooter - has long depended on low-paid, overworked employees who were evaluated partly on how quickly they disposed of tips from callers. The FBI has spread the message that "if you see something, say something," but then it mishandled two ominous tips to its national call center about Nikolas Cruz, the teenager who later gunned down 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an AR-15 rifle. Both tips suggested that Cruz was a school shooter in the making, but...

    The gun-grabbing hate mobs of the left were triggered on Sunday afternoon after a lone shooter opened fire at a video game tournament in Jacksonville. According to reports, the shooter was a Madden veteran who snapped after losing a game and whipped out a handgun which he used to shoot multiple people and ultimately himself. The shooting went down at Jacksonville Landing, an entertainment complex that was a popular destination for bars and restaurants and despite initial concerns that the death toll would be much higher, only three people lost their lives including the lunatic who opened fire. There is...

    Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., joked about how somebody saving a drowning President Trump would be a "catastrophe" at the start of an event in Sunshine, Fla., on Sunday. In a video reported by the Daily Caller, Hastings said he first learned of the joke from Ari Silver, whose father is former Florida state legislator and rabbi Barry Silver. “Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe?” Hastings said, retelling the joke. "A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim,” Hastings said. A "catastrophe," he added, "is anybody saves his ass.'” Cheers...

    As summer comes to a close and kids start going back to school, there is one school getting more media attention than most others.

This past Tuesday — August 14 — also marked six months since the shooting, putting that subject at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Several teens from the school spent their summer as teen activists, both locally and nationally. Some students even took their “March For Our...

    There are two bombshells dropped in New York Times editor Patricia Mazzei’s Twitter feed this morning, one of which has me rethinking some things and the other of which should cause gun controllers to rethink some things. First, though, the Twitter thread in question: "Sheriff Bob Gualtieri of Pinellas County, head of Florida's state-appointed commission investigating the Parkland shooting, said today that video from inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School showed the gunman, Nikolas Cruz, had to reload his AR-15 assault rifle several times." — Patricia Mazzei (@PatriciaMazzei) August 9, 2018 The first tweet in that thread that caused my...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A newly released transcript shows Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz spat out “kill me” and then cursed as he sat alone in a sheriff’s interrogation room just hours after the massacre that left 17 dead. Broward sheriff’s Detective John Curcio had just left Cruz alone to get him some water when the 19-year-old suspect made that exclamation.
