Father Of Parkland Shooting Victim Unloads On Anti-Gunners About The True Causes Of Mass Shootings

I think that we can all agree that the school shooting in Parkland, Florida was a tragedy. I think that we can all agree that it would not have been nearly as bad if the police had done their job and taken down the shooter before he could kill more people. And I think that we can agree that, in a perfect world, this kind of thing wouldn’t happen.

But we don’t live in a perfect world, and anti-gunners are delusional if they think that gun control will save lives.

Now, anti-gunners would have you believe that the parents of the victims of the Parkland shooting agree with them that we need more gun control, but that just isn’t the case, at least not when it comes to Andrew Pollack.

No, on the contrary, Pollack has no problem laying the blame for mass shootings right where it belongs: at the feet of leftists and the anti-gun policies. AWR Hawkins writes,

Andrew Pollack is using speaking engagements and video opportunities to tell audiences that guns do not cause school shootings, leftist policies do.

Pollack’s daughter, Meadow, was killed in the February 14, 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.

During a TPUSA video, Pollack stressed that the right response to school shootings is “to arrest criminals, not ban guns.”

He noted that people who call for more background checks either ignore or do not know that the Parkland attacker passed a background check to get the gun he used. Pollack said the big problem is that school districts are crippled by leftist policies that prevent them from recognizing and/or reporting criminality among certain students.

Pollack said these “politically correct policies to decrease juvenile arrests” spare individuals with criminal tendencies from compiling a record, thereby leaving a clean history with which they pass a background check when they attempt to buy a gun.

Well, that’s pretty straightforward, and you don’t have to be a genius to see the logic of Pollack’s argument. But that doesn’t mean that anti-gunners will ever hear this truth in the mainstream media, and even if they did hear it, anti-gunners are too busy being offended by people with different opinions to be able to hear the truth.

And this is why you and I need to continue to fight for our gun rights at the local, state, and Federal level. Because (often willfully) ignorant people vote, too, and we need more educated and intelligent people voting than anti-gunners with idiotic policies.

  1. I have heard from other sources that the Stoneman shooter continually displayed “anti-social” behavior over many years, and that the authorities (both school and law enforcement) did not take action.
    The problem is, this same situation is happening now in Baltimore and in other jurisdictions.
    Without proper reporting and tracking, it is literally IMPOSSIBLE for red flag laws and for background checks to work as expected. They become just another ultra-liberal “feel good” that harms the law-abiding citizens.
    Recent history puts the lie to this kind of thinking: My father was on a school rifle team; my high school also had a school-sponsored rifle team. If guns were the problem, then why didn’t we have problems, too?

    • I will one up you. When I was in school it was common, especially during hunting season, for over half the vehicles on campus to have rifles and/or shotguns in them many times easily visible when one walked by the vehicles. This applied to both teachers and student’s vehicles.

      • Same here. And it was also common for those guns to be removed from the vehicles and shown to each other in the student/teacher parking lot before and after school. We had no thoughts of shooting anyone, but were proud to own a rifle or shotgun (in my case both- an over and under), and took the responsibility seriously.

        • Same thing here in Montana and we never locked our vehicles. However here we had guns in the trucks 24/7 365 it’s a way of life here. even today police always assume that when they pull over a vehicle for speeding or ??? there are gns in the vehicle and they ask to put them on the dash and unload them while they write out the citation, except for DUI’s then they take them to their patrol car.

          • Yep, same here. I grew up in Indiana and was able to take my rifle with me so I could go hunting after school.

    • It came out that, like true Demonrats, officials didn’t want to lose the federal money they had coming in via education so they ordered nothing be done but hide it…..and nothing was done to them either. I also read that SCOTUS also refused to hear the Colt case to allow parents of the Newtown school shooting to sue Colt for the shootings responsibility which to me opens the way for ALL manufacturers to be liable for any such crime….like driving a vehicle into a crowd, attacking using a knife or machete or a baseball bat, and on and on. This, to me, proves SCOTUS is part of the deep state. Nowhere at any time I’ve I heard it said that the perp was responsible and needed to be properly dealt with. He and/or his failed parents. If you want to sue the responsible party, sue the parents.

      • I believe that if the gun manufacturers are liable then so are the shooters for not using the gun as intended per owners manual. Then next step is a release of liability form that will have to be signed upon purchase that covers proper firearm storage.

        • I believe you’re wrong. Do you also believe knife manufacturers are liable? You must. Recently, in N.C. a young man drove his car into a crowd. You must believe auto manufacturers are liable, too. How can you be such a boob? Any laws that cover “proper firearm storage” will inevitably be WAY too restrictive. Just another way to control citizens. How much time do you have to gain access to a weapon at three AM when a break-in occurs: 5 seconds?, 15 seconds?, Perhaps, you’ll be lucky and have 45 seconds. How long will it take you to get out of bed, find your keys to your gun locker, walk to your locker, unlock it, load your weapon and be ready to repel the 6-foot 230 lb., armed, drug-crazed intruder? I keep mine loaded and within reach. No more gun-laws.
          WOMEN should be angry about restrive gun laws, like red-flag laws. More gun laws = more assaults on women, period. It naturally follows that you must be in favor of this, too. Why????

    • If you teach your responsible gun safety you would have no need to lock up your guns
      My dad never locked up his guns when I was growing up but he did take us to a gun safety course.
      The biggest problem in society today is lack of parenting

  2. I’m a Midwesterner, when I was in high school not only, during hunting season but our school had a very competitive rifle team. Members (on practice days) would bring their guns to school, they would take them to the office and when last period came they would pick up their rifles and go to the range behind the football field (50 yard range in back of the practice football field. We never had a problem with any school shootings. Football coach was coach of rifle team.

  3. The school policy (in a 50 page document) spelled out what must happen. None of it was followed.
    School student, teachers, staff, administration must report
    bulling nothing was done about this
    repeated problems with students ignored
    threats against students, teachers, staff, ignored or down played
    students with possible mental problems ignored
    This school allowed all this to happen because this would hurt good students chances of getting into a ivy league collage.
    results a misunderstood student on prescribed mental drugs gets even.
    Problem “correct the problems that caused the mass shooting”

    • When in the past ten years has any Demonrat politician followed the law? They ignore those to push an agenda and the justice system has done nothing because it’s infested too.

  4. The more kids that died at parkland the better chance for gun control. Maybe thats why the Broward Cowards waited outside. Liberal logic.

  5. I have come to see a recurring set of talking points, observations and terms or labels created by the Democrat extremist being mentioned or brought up by people on forums such as this one or anytime there exists a discussion or comments about the liberals.

    It’s been said they want to form a utopia where their laws create a society that suits their agendas even if that means stealing away the rights most of us want and have had for decades such as the right to own firearms. We’ve read how they want to decide how we live and think and what will be normal or acceptable and what will not be, such as self reliance, gun ownership or preservation of American values that are forefathers passed down in the form of The Constitution and patriotism.

    They write and recite pointless irrelevant speeches (Obama was good at this) that sound good to their idiot supporters and the media selects specific phrases to repeat and gain believers. This allows the media to create soundbites and promote slogans for their leftwing peers.

    The media itself, or the fake news as our President has dubbed it, is all nothing but selected soundbites and fabricated reporting by their liberal puppets (Don Lemon, Bill Maher, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Colbert, Robert De Niro, etc.) who seek not truth, but fame and the adoration of morons who laugh and applaud their snarky jokes and twisted version of the truth.

    Bill Clinton, a known whore chaser and adulterer, is trying to shame President Trump into passing anti-gun laws by saying that Trump should ignore the impeachment hearings and work on “this problem” for the sake of our children. Ahh really? And how much concern for his family (Scumbags that they are) did he have when he made the decision to fool around. Also, twisting truths, facts and reasoning, he was being impeached for embarrassing his office and our country. Nobody had spied on him, made any false accusations or claims and their were no closed door meetings by Republicans or surprise witnesses or testimonies. It was all out in the open. Transparency was always part of the event.

    Hillary and Obama both knew about the danger to the Americans in the Benghazi embassy, yet as reported on TV and elsewhere, they both had events the next day they wanted to attend, so they both took no action and got a good nights sleep. They’re responsible for the deaths of four American citizens, yet no hearings, no trials, and Hillary said publicly, “What difference does it make”.

    And the last thing, I am sure there is more I am forgetting, is the constant finger pointing, unsubstantiated and downright false accusations against Republicans and the President. That’s called libel or slander. And blaming the President for things that are out his control or laws and protocols instigated by Obama and even Clinton. Again a sort of twisting or spinning of facts and actual historically documented events. They fabricate false narratives and demean, harass and attack anyone that opposes the liberal agenda to brainwash the populace.

    I must add, if you watched the Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe, all those stupid assholes spent their time insulting, not just jokes, but outright name calling in one instance, Ann Coulter who was a guest and a friend of Rob Lowes. In an interview Rob Lowe played it off, but as the show wrapped up and the celebrities are all talking to each other, you see that nobody was talking to Ann Coulter. It was obviously their chance to gang up on her since she was the only Republican on the dais. It was the most blatant example of the media, the show’s producer and the liberal snowflake guests abusing their positions and attacking a non-liberal. I was particularly ashamed when Rob Riggle, a former Marine and Peyton, Mr. Football hero, and even Ralph Machio, supposedly such a nice guy, all ripped into her. And THESE people think they’re better than anyone conservative or republican.
    No real man would sell his principles out for a laugh from idiots. It was shameful.

  6. Yet the news media refuses to publish this. Except for Jesse Watters of Fox news who interviewed him. Anti gun politicians are afraid of his message.
