Gun Grabber Round Up: 2/23

Guess what else the Catamite News Network is burying?

'He never went in': Parkland school's designated armed campus cop resigns as it emerges he 'HID' outside the school as 17 were killed and sheriff says 30-year veteran's inaction makes him 'sick'

Marjory Stoneman Douglas's resource officer Scot Peterson 'never went in' during the massacre. Instead of confronting the gunman he stayed outside the school at his station

An officer claims Peterson hid behind a cement column during the shooting

Peterson, who is 54 years old and a veteran of the force, resigned when he was informed of his suspension and will qualify for his pension.

And in an interview with the New York Times, Coral Springs Officer Tim Burton revealed Peterson hid from Cruz when the teenager started shooting.

Burton said Peterson 'was seeking cover behind a concrete column leading to a stairwell,' because he was worried Cruz could be lurking in the lot. He said Peterson couldn't hear gunshots or screams to lead him to the precise location of the shooting.

Even more shocking was the revelation that Peterson had been told in 2016 about Cruz's Instagram posts about opening fire at a school.

Call logs released by the Sheriff's Office show that on February 6 of that year, a neighbor's son called police and told them Cruz 'planned to shoot up the school on Instagram'.

The deputy who responded determined Cruz had knives and a BB gun and the information was forwarded to Peterson.

Israel said Peterson resigned when he was told he was being suspended without pay while police conduct an internal investigation, NBC Los Angeles reported. He said the cop said he'd met the requirements for retirement.

'After seeing video and witness statements, and Peterson's own statement, I decided this morning... to suspend Scot Peterson without pay pending an internal investigation,' Israel said.

He said the video shows Peterson arrive at Building 12, where most of the killing took place, and take position outside the school.

Apart from getting 'on his radio' to alert police of the situation, Peterson did 'nothing' to prevent 17 innocent people, including 14 children, from being slaughtered, Israel said.

Israel said that instead of just standing there, Peterson should have gone 'in, addressed the killer and killed the killer,' adding that instead he 'stood outside for upwards of four minutes.'

He said that Peterson's lack of action left him 'devastated. Sick to my stomach. There are no words.' As Israel spoke there were tears in his eyes and he 'appeared emotional.'

Peterson never discharged his gun during the shooting.

But according to him, he did his duty.

Peterson was reportedly 'distraught' about the deadly shooting, but 'believed he did a good job,' president of the Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association said.

'He believed he did a good job calling in the location, setting up the perimeter and calling in the description [of Cruz],' Jim Bell told the New York Post.

This is getting so much exposure on the Right that they will have to confront it soon. And I already know the tactic they will deploy, "The NRA wants people to have guns at schools and there was a gun there and the gun didn't do anything!"

This guy's cowardice is understandable if not commendable.  If it comes down to pistol versus rifle, the rifle is always going to win unless you are talking about some very specialized tactical circumstances. 

The bigger issue is, "bare is back without brother to warm it."  Because one broken down, old ass SRO, who is only marking time until his pension kicks in, is not a serious attempt at security.  

If you want real security at schools its going to cost money.  And yes we are talking federal money. You will need a minimum of three shooters and a supervisor who is also a shooter, (ie a fire team).  You will need a s national supervisory set up to ensure standards are maintained.  Now that will prevent all future school shootings because no mass shooter ever willingly goes up against armed resistance.   But it won't be cheap and as I said, there will never be another mass shooting at a school again and the Gun Grabbers hate that idea.


Public schools will get free help from the National Rifle Association (NRA), said Wayne LaPierre, the NRA executive vice president, speaking on the first day of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Oxon Hill, Maryland, outside Washington, D.C.

“Evil walks among us, and God help us if we don’t harden our schools and protect our kids,” said LaPierre, speaking to attendees at the annual gathering of thousands of conservative leaders, activists and journalists from across the country.

“In every community in America … they all must come together to implement the very best strategy to harden their schools, including effective, trained, armed security that will absolutely protect every innocent child in this country,” said LaPierre.

It's probably a useless publicity ploy given home many states won't let teachers go armed as a matter of state law but I'll take it.  You have to remember "gun free zones are magical good think spaces. 


Tucker said, “I would have to, under the bill you supported, the gun registry bill. I would have to register guns in my house, despite the fact I’ve committed no crime, done nothing untoward with that gun, and I have to register it with you and other government officials, who just failed to keep us…”

Farmer responded, “What’s wrong with that Tucker? Why does law enforcement? Why are they unable to have the tools available to them?”

“I don’t know, they were unable to stop the guy who just killed 17 people,” The Daily Caller co-founder said.

Farmer said, “What is everybody afraid of with a gun registry?”

“We’re afraid that demagogues like you will misuse that information and after talking to you for a few minutes that is a legitimate fear,” Carlson said.

Farmer said, “How so? How so? Continue the narrative, please. How so?”

“Here’s the narrative,” Carlson said. “The government, as I said at every level, and this is factual, not my opinion, failed to protect those students. You will not concede that and instead turn the blame back on blameless American citizens.”

“The FBI, whatever. 39 times to his house, whatever. Giving people like you power is frightening. That’s the bottom line. I’m out, because I can’t get a straight answer from you,” he added.

Honestly, I don't know how Trump carried Florida. Not if it was willing to elect this jack-wagon gun grabber as governor.

Gun registry is the first step in disarming everyone...except those who are loyal to the Deep State.  Exceptions will be made there of course.

For all of those who are angry about the Parkland attack and those before it, and who insist that the experiences of the newly minted child-activists for rescinding the Second Amendment require us to do what they demand, ask yourselves: do I want a society where my rights are determined by the raw and manipulated emotions of my accusers? Do I want my rights decided by what children feel? It is self-evident to rational people that anger, especially misinformed anger, is not a basis for good policy. However, it is all that progressives can offer. At least it helps them to deflect that armed teachers would have ended that attack before more of those children died, making their refusal to allow that defense for years an act of complicity in its outcome.

Being a victim and being young do not make one nobler or smarter than he was before he was attacked. The experience of being attacked certainly makes one vulnerable to exploitation by those who would manipulate the victim, but it does nothing to enlarge the victim's limited understanding of complex issues that are often polluted by corruption and disinformation. Victimhood does not create virtue or wisdom, but it does cause rage and emotion among those cultivated to default to feelings.

Inflamed emotion is the left's engine of change, and the left prizes coercive change above all things. Everything that stands in the way of their crusade to remake America must go. Nothing prevents oppressive change more than an armed citizenry, so nothing needs changing as much or as quickly as that relic of individual liberty. You can't make people servants of an all-powerful government when they can still prevent being bound to the yoke chosen for them by their "betters."

We who still believe in the Bill of Rights are presently being treated to a hefty serving of hate, not because we have done something wrong, but because we have refused to surrender. We have declined the demand that we sacrifice our rights to make happy those who would overwhelm and control us. We have resisted the demands that we permit "commonsense" acts that are anything but sensible, which will erode or erase our rights to defend ourselves against those making the demands. We are told we must continually agree to incremental rescission of the Second Amendment, but progressives can create rights out of whole cloth to which we can neither object nor suggest limits. We are to pretend that we don't see this, or understand where it is intended to lead, and we certainly are not permitted to discuss it without being attacked. 

Bottomline: The best way to protect someone, is for that someone to protect himself.

Here's the thing, arming teachers has already been tried, and it works. After the Maalot Massacre Israel passed a law requiring armed security including armed teachers. There have only been 2 school shootings since then. Both times, though there were casualties, the attackers were killed by school staff. Murderers like easy targets, armed teachers make schools bad targets.

"Israel said that instead of just standing there, Peterson should have gone 'in, addressed the killer and killed the killer,' adding that instead he 'stood outside for upwards of four minutes."

What in the hell does this Israel think a 54 year old man with a service pistol, by himself, is capable of? This isn't a movie where the hero cop goes in and takes one shot at the bad guy and domes him from 50 yards. How many firefights has Israel been in? The old man was outgunned and alone, with a real chance of hitting the kids instead of Cruz in a packed hallway. I doubt the old man had done one immediate action drill, ever.
