If we are looking for answers to why the massacre in Parkland, Florida, happened, then we have to take a look at the failures of government. A roundup of editorials Tuesday takes a look at the issue.
From The Federalist: Scott Israel’s headed a department that has been shown to have engaged in a pattern of incompetence. Why is he still the sheriff?
Today I sent the following letter to @FLGovScott Asking that he suspend Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for incompetence and dereliction of duty. I was honored to be joined by 73 Republican colleagues. You can read the letter attached here. pic.twitter.com/exZVwGQ3DR— Richard Corcoran (@richardcorcoran) February 25, 2018
From columnist Katie Pavlich: It wasn’t the lack of gun control that allowed Parkland to happen, it was the government failing miserably.
Shame on you @CaseyCagle. My name is Fred Guttenberg and my daughter Jaime was just killed in the Parkland shooting. I hope you as a parent never go through what my family is going through. The NRA is a hindrance to the safety of our children.https://t.co/bmMCKXE5Nx— Fred Guttenberg (@fred_guttenberg) February 27, 2018
From Townhall: Liberals are ferocious when it comes to Confederate statues, but when it comes to serious issues, they seem to always end up on the side of disarming the good.
