On MSD, a DeSan­tis con­tra­dic­tion

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - OPINION -

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.
