    I was in my environmental science class when the first gunshot echoed through the hallways. We never had an active shooter drill at my school, and though we did talk about what to do in this type of situation, nothing could have prepared us for this. Politicians and, more importantly, the American public must take action if we're going to prevent the next shooting.
  • The Devil Showed up at a Florida School on Valentine’s Day

    The teen-age shooter heard voices in his head, which he described as demons, instructing him to kill everyone he saw before him at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. That revelation by 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, whose Valentine’s Day massacre left 17 dead and 15 injured, was underreported by much of the mainstream media. That’s because hardly any of those who reported the mass murder at Douglas High accept that the devil exists, and that his demonic forces are active and involved in the modern day affairs of humanity. Indeed, fewer than one in ten “mainstream” journalists attend church...

    As we wade through the news reports and the commentary on the Florida shooting, we can’t help but think that nearly everyone – from journalists to politicians to gun control or gun rights advocates – is missing the point. Everyone is pointing the finger at someone. It’s President Trump’s fault because he practically handed guns to mentally ill people! It’s Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s fault for not banning bump stocks. It’s the NRA’s fault – it’s always the NRA’s fault. Here’s the thing: you can blame anyone you want. You can make any argument you want about the...

    No, they are not going to bring back times tables, Teachers think this sort of thing is beneath them, and that making any child learn things is cruel.... But employers, if they can, somehow seem to prefer to hire Poles or Romanians. We may have the certificates. But it is the people from the old-fashioned countries that tend to have the education...... Amid all the usual fuss about guns, important information about Nikolas Cruz, the alleged Florida shooter, is as usual obscured. So here it is.

    -----This explains Why Cruz was Never Prosecuted for Crimes Committed at School before he grew bold and went on a murdering rampage. Deceased and wounded victims' families can thank the NAACP. -------- Press Release (2013) The NAACP has brokered a groundbreaking collaborative agreement on school discipline with Broward County Public Schools, law enforcement and its community partners. The agreement will serve as a model for school districts nationwide that aim to end the school to prison pipeline wreaking havoc in communities of color. The collaborative agreement establishes proven alternatives to arrest for misdemeanor infractions by students that include common sense...

    After days of bitter hurt, anger, deep savage argument, and plenty of non-thinking social media trolls blurting whatever comes to mind through their thumbs, it’s time we as Americans begin a genuine discussion about how to stop the next school shooting from occurring. It’s important that we do this even though gun deaths are by no means the most dangerous form of death in America today. In 2017, with 300,000,000-plus guns in the hands of Americans, there were 15,549 gun deaths. This ranks less than half the number of automobile deaths even though there are fewer cars in existence than...

    ince the Florida school shooting happened in an election year, liberals have been working valiantly to somehow tie the National Rifle Association to the tragedy. This isn’t a new phenomenon, but some of them seemed to think they’d struck gold when they found out about a marksmanship program operated at the school which the shooter previously belonged to. It turns out that the program received a grant to partially fund it from the NRA, leading to some hot take headlines which are melting down laptop and phone screens today. These include, “Nikolas Cruz was reportedly on an NRA-funded rifle team...

    Maybe it’s the proliferation of social media in our daily lives that has exposed us to this insanity, but we’ve seriously gone off the deep end. For some abortions rights supporters apparently, the Florida shooter wouldn’t have been able to commit this tragic crime if his birth mother had aborted him. That’s what Israeli-American reporter and former MTV Europe VJ Becky Griffin insinuated on Twitter. Woman puts baby up for adoption, he grows up to be a violent young man who will spend the rest of his life in prison for a mass murder. Tell me more about how abortions...

    "I don't think that we're gonna get gun control in such a quick enough response," Colton Haab told Fox NewsAfter a gunman stormed Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida Wednesday and killed 17 people, a student who survived the massacre said suspected shooter Nikolas Cruz could have been stopped if a teacher had a firearm as well. Colton Haab is a junior at Stoneman Douglas and a second lieutenant in the school's JROTC program, which Cruz was also a member of. He told Fox News Saturday morning that training and arming teachers on campus would be a "big...

    The FBI acknowledged on Friday it received a tip last month that the suspect in the Florida school shooting had a "desire to kill" and access to guns and could be plotting an attack, but agents failed to investigate. A person who was close to the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, called the FBI's tip line on January 5 and provided information about Cruz's weapons and his erratic behavior, including his disturbing social media posts, reported The Associated Press. The caller was concerned that Cruz could attack a school. In a statement, the FBI acknowledged that the tip should have been shared...

    The brother of the Florida school shooter has been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility, according to a report. Nikolas Cruz’s younger brother, who turns 18 next week, was involuntarily removed from his home on Friday under what is commonly known as the Baker Act, according to the Palm Beach Post. While an adult may be held and examined for up to 72 hours, the limit for minors is 12 hours. Both Nikolas Cruz and his brother were adopted by a loving older couple. But Roger Cruz passed away years ago, while their mother Lynda Cruz died on Nov....

    Here we go again. A horrific mass shooting occurs. Everyone is in shock and grief. Democrats blame guns and Republicans. Pundits urge the public, “If you see something, say something.” And everyone asks, “Why?” As information about the perpetrator emerges, a relative confides to a newspaper that the “troubled youth” who committed the mass murder was on psychiatric medications – you know, those powerful, little understood, mind-altering drugs with fearsome side effects including “suicidal ideation” and even “homicidal ideation.” Yet the predictable response from the press is always the same – not only a total lack of curiosity, but disdain...

    Wednesday’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left at least 17 people dead, again reminds us that all is not right in the land of the free and the home of the brave. If you have children in the public school system, you’ll probably offer up a special prayer tonight, and hug your child a little longer in the morning before you send him or her off to school. It takes courage to live in America these days – but not for reasons any of us anticipated just a few short years ago. We’ve long been suffering from...

    A foreseeable act of mass murder and terrorism just wiped out 17 innocent lives and ripped apart countless families. Besides the obvious psychopathic killer-Cruz, who should be held accountable for their actions and gross malfeasance? In descending order of the most current events, take your pick(s): 1. The FBI- Notified twice they had a ticking time bomb in the shell of a man, ready to detonate at any moment. They had been made aware of his name, address, intent to kill- specifically at a school, that he had the means to kill masses, and that he was brazenly proud and...

    During the intense media coverage of Wednesday's tragic events in Parkland, Fla., I was shocked to hear it was the 18th school shooting so far this year. Eighteen. In 45 days. That sounds terrible. That sounds like a huge American crisis that needs to be addressed immediately by our great leaders in Washington. But that 18 number, which the anti-gun lobby in the media has emphasized without going into the details of the individual incidents, is highly misleading. None of those previous shootings was anything like the horrible one on Wednesday that left 17 students and teachers dead at Marjory...

    17 people lost their lives in Parkland when Nikolas Cruz committed a mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018. The people range from students to coaches, and they were all doing what they do on a typical school day. Some were at work. Some were in class. Everyone was doing what they were supposed to be doing when they were alerted about the school shooter. The shots rang out, people scrambled, and innocent blood was spilled like broken faucets running continuously until dry. Leftists called for gun control. Right wingers called for mental health...
