Kid with Pop-Tart ‘Gun’ Taken more Seriously than Florida Shooter

Only in Leftist America can an organization like the NRA be blamed for something that it had no part in. How is it possible that an advocacy and lobbying group that works to defend an amendment to the Constitution is attacked for what some 19-year-old mentally disturbed and frequently reported to police and school officials on dozens of occasions did in his own name?

The sickening part of this story is how many opportunities law enforcement officials had to stop the murders. Blaming the NRA is a way for liberals to cover up their horrendous mistakes.

On January 5th of this year, an anonymous tip came into the FBI about Cruz as reported by The New York Times:

Over the course of the January call, which lasted more than 13 minutes, the tipster warned the F.B.I. that Mr. Cruz had been adrift since his mother’s death in November. She said that Mr. Cruz had “the mental capacity of a 12 to a 14 year old.” The tipster provided four Instagram accounts for Mr. Cruz, which she said showed photos of sliced up animals and the firearms he had amassed. The caller, whose name was redacted on the transcript, said Mr. Cruz had used money from a life insurance policy after his mother’s death to purchase the weapons.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office had also been contacted by this same anonymous tipster. As we now know, this wasn’t the first time local and federal authorities had been contacted about Cruz, and authorities didn’t do anything. The claim is that there was no probable cause.

Compare all of this with Josh Welch, a second-grader at Park Elementary School in Maryland, who was suspended for two days  — get this — because he chewed a Pop-Tart into what school administrators said resembled a gun and then said, “Look, I made a gun!”

The story swept national news and Josh quickly became an icon among gun rights activists. The National Rifle Association even awarded him with a lifetime membership.

It also inspired Florida lawmakers to pass a bill in 2014 limiting zero-tolerance practices at schools, including punishment for “brandishing partially consumed pastry,” or other food items, to simulate a weapon, the Post reported. (Washington Times)

The case went to court because of the severity of the punishment. To show you how seriously this incident was to school officials, “Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Ronald A. Silkworth ruled … that the school system could reasonably consider that the boy’s actions in March 2013 were disruptive and that a suspension was appropriate, due to the boy’s past behavioral issues.”
