On MSD, a DeSantis contradiction
One day into his administration Ron DeSantis has already contradicted himself. A scientific analysis of the MSD tragedy wouldn't blame the final person involved.
This kid was emotionally and psychologically damaged. His mother should have steered him to the arts and music, for therapy and expression, never towards guns. She paid the price. And no one should be allowed to purchase Army weapons for hunting, period.
A national background check could have stopped this. Everyone at school knew he was the one most likely to shoot the place up, and that info could have appeared on that background check.
The Republicans in national and state government and the NRA have been fighting every sensible measure to prevent gun violence for decades.
So this firing of Scott Israel is just chicken ----, placing the blame on him for the Republicans’ own deadly mistakes.
