Protesters wrong to blame the NRA

“Hey! Hey! NRA, how many kids have you killed today?” Really, walkout wizards? Is that the best you can do?

Let’s see. How many guns has the NRA sold to crazed shooters? Zero. The NRA doesn’t sell guns. The NRA defends the Second Amendment, our constitutional, God-given right to keep and bear arms.

The NRA is also recognized nationally as the gold standard for safe firearm training. Unlike the “Coward” County sheriff deputies who waited outside, firearms regulations like the (NICS), drafted and improved with the NRA’s help, have actually ruined the plans of mass shooters. Broward Sheriff Israel created and oversaw a culture of avoiding confrontation and controversy in the name of political correctness and the pursuit of leftist policies, and his attitude seeped through his department to the lowest levels. How many times (39) did law enforcement visit Cruz before the attack? What actions (0) were taken?

Other than the NRA, upon whom have the victims of this tragedy placed blame? The NRA had nothing to do with it. Period. To those in charge of the leftist public indoctrination system, please expose our students to verifiable facts and some common-sense truth. The blatant ignorance is shameful.

Amanda Scott great choice for senate

Get breaking news sent instantly to your inbox

I see Amanda Scott is running for Senate in District 33. Congratulations to those who are in that district. Sadly that is not my district, but if it were, I would certainly cast my vote for her. I have known Amanda for over 20 years as a supervisor, a co-worker, a mentor, a council member for my ward and most importantly as my friend.

I personally vouch for her character and willingness to ask the hard questions when we citizens are concerned. She can literally be like a pit bull with a bone when she believes what she is pursuing is right for the people. She has championed several veterans' projects with me. Being a veteran married to a veteran, she truly understands our concerns.

For Amanda to even consider this endeavor speaks volumes to me and it should to you as well. She believes there is something she can do to benefit you and I. The position as senator is way more than a job to her — it's her passion. Simply put, vote Amanda Scott for Senate District 33.
