The Florida school shooting has taken an even more disturbing turn. There have been reports of police officers twiddling their thumbs outside while the shooting was still in progress. Meanwhile, leftists are focusing their attention on the “child-murdering” NRA (see NRA Fires Back at Broward County Sheriff and NRA’s Colion Noir Throws Down on Media for Glorifying Mass Shooters).
Listen to this student’s story of encountering the school resource officer in the midst of the massacre:
"He was pointing his gun at nothing." Student says he watched as @browardsheriff school resource officer Scot Peterson hid behind a staircase during the Stoneman Douglas shooting. @wsvn pic.twitter.com/IWRQorRrcL

He’s the only one with a gun. He’s wearing a bulletproof vest. He has all that, while coaches were running in shielding kids from bullets and losing their lives. While he did nothing.
“While he did nothing.”
Keep in mind, leftists want police to be the only people with guns. You see how well that played out here. Had one of the teachers been allowed to conceal a firearm, they may had a better alternative than repurposing themselves as human shields.
The harsh reality is law enforcement is not the end-all solution for self-preservation. The po-po are government agencies, after all. There are all sorts of situations where police protection isn’t an option. Sometimes, you’re in a life-or-death situation in the boondocks while the nearest deputy is on the other side of the county. Or, as in the case of Parkland, sometimes you have a real life Barney Fife for a sheriff.
When law enforcement fails in a crisis, living or dying is up to you. Which is one of the many reasons why we have the Second Amendment. The left says Parkland is the perfect example for why we need to confiscate all the gats. In reality, the inaction of this resource officer proves why we should be packing heat.
