When what happens? I had to go back and refresh myself on Stoneman Douglas because this shit happens so frequently now. But it sounds like there were a lot of similarities between Cruz and Betts. Both troubled students who everyone agrees probably should have never owned a gun. And I understand we approach a slippery slope when/if we account for subjective concerns (i.e Cruz's teacher said he was a potential threat to classmates, he wasn't allowed to wear a backpack on campus) but it's like FFS the school was basically waiting for this to happen and it did with weapons they purchased legally.
Meaning when there is a big red flag (or about 20 of them in the case of the stoneman shooter), people still don't do their jobs. How can people cry to pass more laws, when time and time again we fail to enforce the current laws on the books?
