A high school shooting in Parkland, Florida happened a few hours ago. As of the writing of this post at least 20 victims have been taken to hospitals with 17 fatalities reported.
This is a terrible and heinous crime. We are saddened and sickened at the same time.
This did not stop the instant politicization of this shooting.
For the latest on the school shooting: Parkland high school shooting: At least 17 killed, suspect in custody, Florida sheriff says. Otherwise the story continues below.
The shooter is in custody. Along with initial reports of police response to the school, leftists, journalists, and other ignoramus cockalorums started blaming the Florida NRA for the shooting. Who needs sympathy when you can rush to politicize deaths.

Another school shooting in the USA. Another opportunity for spineless politicians at the mercy of the @NRA to send their #thoughtsandprayers over a preventable tragedy.
Better gun regulations could have prevented this.
Better access to mental health could have prevented this. 1/

Many on the left say “save the children.” Yet these groups also want to save Planned Parenthood. Which kills children. Millions of them.
Of course, one group of verified social media users had to chime in. The dreaded journalists. DNC teat-sucking journalists.
FFS, here we go again. Thanks GOP & NRA for not even trying! Keep your thoughts and prayers where the sun don't shine. https://t.co/nZuKAPnvQn

Another day, another school shooting. That's where we are as a country, thanks to the NRA. https://t.co/sHkuh3D9NG

The greatest terrorist threat to the United States isn’t ISIS. It’s the @NRA who daily threatens the lives our nation’s school children by using their considerable financial & political weight to ensure any legislation that might curb these tragedies never sees the light of day.

Notice the timestamp of this last post. America wins gold for moronic media. She tweeted mere minutes after initial coverage, with no details. #Journalism
Chris Hayes of MSNBC wins the award for conspiracy theory of the day. The tweet has since been deleted. It probably wasn’t fake newsy enough to meet MSNBC’s standards.
The left touts tolerance, equal rights, and compassion. While feminists are enjoying their fourth burger of the day, social justice crapwads turn a tragedy into a soapbox. Like clockwork. They shout for the NRA to be silenced and the crushing of the Second Amendment. Meanwhile, they want equal rights for their hamburgers to wed. They claim love for children, while taking every thigh-rubbing step in marches for more abortions.
Anti-gun leftists are stuck in a giant pit of hypocrisy. Claiming to be the side of sympathy while they quickly turn the loss of life into an opportunity to spew hateful, invalid notions.
Having to defend rights or the NRA after every shooting is not something conservatives look forward to. Many of us would much rather be silent to contemplate loss and give support to Florida. Yet we find ourselves here time and time again.
Democrats immediately politicized the Florida school shooting that left at least 17 people dead on Wednesday and demanded gun control legislation, even before it was known how the shooter got his gun and whether any proposed legislation would have stopped it.
Some Democrats blamed Republicans for Wednesday’s tragedy, without citing any evidence whatsoever.
“Republicans should pray for forgiveness, for not only their complacency and dereliction of duty, but in contrition for the men, women and children we continue to lay to rest because of senseless gun violence and the cowardly inaction from Congress,” Democratic New Jersey Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman wrote on Twitter.
“How many more moments of silence must we hold before Republicans in Congress act? We are not powerless. There are measures we can and must take to make our communities safer,” Democratic Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly said in a statement.
Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton took a shot at President Trump after the president expressed his condolences to the victims’ families. “I agree with every word @realDonaldTrump said here,” Moulton wrote on Twitter. “I invite him to get off his ass and join me in trying to do something about it.”
Even before the suspected shooter was in custody, Democratic Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy took the Senate floor to blame the shooting on a lack of gun control.
“Turn on your television right now, you’re going to see scenes of children running for their lives. What looks to be the 19th school shooting in this country and we have not even hit March,” Murphy said, citing a misleading statistic put out by gun control proponents.
“This epidemic of mass slaughter, this scourge of school shooting after school shooting. It only happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a consequence of our inaction,” Murphy said.
“I, too, offer thoughts & prayers…” Democratic New Jersey Rep. Donald Norcross wrote on Twitter. “… I also offer my support to bring #gunsafety measures up for a vote.”
“Another senseless tragedy at an American school. My heart is with the victims and their families. When will we wake up? When will we take action to prevent these shootings from occurring? These tragedies are the new normal, and that should make all of us sick,” said Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
“Absolutely horrific. The victims are weighing heavy in my heart. It’s time for senseless violence to end. Enough is enough. We need common sense gun safety reform,” said Democratic California Rep. Ro Khanna.
“Once again, gun violence shatters lives with another school shooting. We need sensible gun control, like background checks and tracing of weapons. My heart breaks for the families affected & my thanks to the first responders in Florida,” said Rep. Nydia Velazquez.
“Horrific. Thoughts and prayers from the president are not enough – we need common-sense gun reform NOW!” wrote New York Rep. Nita Lowey.
“Heartbroken over another school shooting. Schools must be a safe space for all students & teachers, not the scenes of tragedy. Monitoring the situation. When will my @GOP colleagues finally agree #EnoughIsEnough & act on #gunsafety? Thoughts & prayers are meaningless w/o action,” wrote New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney.
