Gun Control Freaks Push To Raise Age Requirement, Trump Delivers Unexpected Surprise

Following the mass murder in Parkland, Florida, gun control advocates tried to push to raise the minimum age requirement to purchase certain firearms. Now, they’re getting an unexpected surprise from President Donald Trump.

According to Daily Caller, President Trump didn’t waste any time in delivering some bad news to all the liberals who thought they were going to see the minimum age requirement to purchase certain firearms raised to 21 instead of 18. As Trump often does, he bypassed the mainstream media and sent out a statement on Twitter to make sure his words didn’t get twisted.

“Very strong improvement and strengthening of background checks will be fully backed by White House. Legislation moving forward. Bump Stocks will soon be out. Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to conceal carry, subject to State Law. Armed guards OK, deterrent!…….” Trump wrote.

In a continuation of his message, Trump smashed the dreams of liberals everywhere when he wrote, “…On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting. States are making this decision. Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly).”

It’s very clear that our President reacted to the horrific mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School very seriously and was determined to provide the security and deterrent measures that should have been in place years ago.

Allowing a select number of teachers to carry a firearm is a tremendous step in the right direction, along with armed security guards to stand watch. The fact of the matter is that if a lowlife like Nikolas Cruz knew ahead of time that there would be teachers on campus who were armed and ready to fight back, it may have very well discouraged him from committing such a heinous act in the first place.

In addition, if the public is aware that all schools have armed guards who are highly trained to handle situations like the one in Parkland, Florida, the chances of more mass shootings at schools will decrease even more. These are common sense ideas that should have been in place years ago, and former President Barack Obama had eight years to do something to make our schools safer, but he didn’t.

The bottom line is that Obama did nothing except try to increase gun control laws at every turn. In fact, Obama and his former Attorney General Eric Holder were caught walking guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, hoping that they would be used to commit crimes against Americans to build up support for more gun control. It’s that kind of sick thinking that we cannot afford any longer in this country.

In addition to these needed security measures and deterrents, it would be wise for Congress to pass legislation that severely punishes any law enforcement officer or official who fails to engage an active shooter while innocent lives are being taken. The sad truth about the Valentine’s Day massacre in Florida is that Nikolas Cruz could have been stopped even before he stepped foot on that high school campus if the FBI and Broward County Sheriff’s Office were going their jobs.

Tragically, Cruz was allowed to continually slip through the cracks after he was reported as a threat to the FBI. In my opinion, that kind of failure in our federal law enforcement community is unforgivable and should be the cause of mass firings for everyone involved. The victims who were killed or wounded deserve justice and deserve to have every law enforcement officer or official held accountable for their failures.

It’s crucial to remember that while there were many who did not do their duty that day, they represent a small percentage of our law enforcement community. Every day, officers on the local, state, and federal level risk their lives to take out the trash and keep the scum off our streets. Hopefully, the measure President Trump is taking with Congress will help those efforts to give American children the safe learning environment they deserve.
