    Most of the same dysfunctional officials in charge at the time of the shooting are still running the dystopian show in Broward County, which is Florida’s version of New York City and San Francisco. I live nine miles from Parkland, Florida. Weeks after a young shooter murdered 14 students and three staffers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, I wrote that Democratic policies had helped enable the atrocity. One year later, few have been held accountable, but the Democrat anti-gun cult has strengthened. Most of the same dysfunctional officials in charge at the time of the shooting are still running...

    A high-stakes gambler who rained a hail of gunfire down on a crowd of country music fans, killing 58, took any specific motive for the 2017 attack to his grave, the FBI said Tuesday as it concluded the investigation into the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The agency found no "single or clear motivating factor" to explain why Stephen Paddock carried out the attack from his suite in a high-rise casino hotel. The 64-year-old fatally shot himself as police closed in. "It wasn't about MGM, Mandalay Bay or a specific casino or venue," Aaron Rouse, the agent in...

Professional outrage activist Shaun King wasted no time in crying racism and stirring up animosity under the guise of fighting race-based crime. Days later it was discovered that Jazmine’s killer wasn’t white but a black man - perhaps two. In the chaos of the incident people had identified a man they saw speeding...
