It Wasn't a Lack of Firepower That Caused the Parkland School Massacre
In the wake of the shooting deaths of 17 people, students and teachers, at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida, officials, including the Mango Mussolini, were quick to blame the school's uniformed and armed resource officer, Scot Peterson, for choosing not to enter the building and take out the gunman.
Even the Broward County sheriff, Scott Israel, piled on. Israel said he was devastated that Peterson hadn't stormed into the school and taken out the shooter.
It turns out that Peterson wasn't alone with his gun safely outside the school. There were also three Broward County deputies who also chose to stay outside. Four guns that remained holstered. One school security guy and three, real live, honest to gosh, police officers.
If only they had a tank, maybe then....
