Is This The New Normal?

Last week we had another horrific mass murder occur on a school campus. However somehow this one seems different… The school administrators, fellow students and the FBI all dropped the ball identifying the shooter as a danger to society in the months leading up to his rampage, but that’s not what the conversation has been about.

The FBI was quick to come up with what I call a lame excuse for their inaction. However in my opinion they have a lot of explaining to do why they failed to follow up on all the reported red flags that they had a potential shooter on the horizon.

It also seems like the gun control advocates we’re on the scene even before they had all the bodies removed. They are now using the surviving students from Parkland as pawns in their desire to have stronger gun controls put into place… even though there isn’t a change that they are proposing that would have stopped this particular shooter from getting the gun(s) he used during his shooting spree. Nor will it stop the next nut case from buying their weapon.

In the days immediately after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida the media was concentrating mainly on the student protests that were being held when it was my opinion that if these kids really gave a crap about their dead classmates they would have been holding memorial services and working through their grief. Instead we see them playing up to the cameras… is this going to be the new normal reaction to a mass killing?
