Democrats and the media jumped at the chance to exploit the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to push gun control.
They pulled out every stop to ban guns and gut the Second Amendment.
But a secret recording revealed the truth about what happened that day.
The killer was able to massacre 17 innocents because law enforcement failed.
Gun control would not have stopped the killer.
But Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson may have been able to.
He was the school resource officer on campus that day, but failed to enter the building to confront the killer.
Peterson claimed he believed he heard gunfire outside the building.
A newly released audio recording shows that he knew the shots were coming from inside the school and even was heard saying not to go inside.
The Miami Herald reports:
“But internal radio dispatches released by the Broward Sheriff’s Office Thursday show Peterson immediately fixated on Building 12 and even radioed that gunfire was happening “inside.”
And, just as school shooter Nikolas Cruz was fleeing the building after killing 17 people, Peterson warned his fellow officers to stay away — even as wounded students and staff lay inside.
BSO policy calls for deputies to engage an active shooter and eliminate the threat.
“Do not approach the 12 or 1300 building, stay at least 500 feet away,” a panicked Peterson shouted as people screamed in the background.”
Gun grabbing politicians and journalists shamefully exploited the deaths and grief of children to push for tighter gun laws.
But no law could have stopped the madman.
The systems were in place to prevent this killing but the Broward County Sheriff’s office – as well as the FBI – dropped the ball.
