Shep Smith, Sen. Bill Nelson Push Gun Control Before Florida School Shooting Details Known

Fox News’ Shepard Smith and Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) scolded Congress for not a passing a terror watch list gun ban before the number of fatalities at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was even known.

The high school is located in Parkland, Florida, where someone opened fire at roughly 2 p.m.

During live broadcast coverage on Wednesday, Sen. Nelson opened the door to a gun control discussion by saying, “Each time this happens, and how many have happened? We say, ‘Enough is enough,’ and then it happens again.”

Smith responded, “What could Congress do?”

Nelson said, “Well, we could not even [pass a bill] that would take the terrorist watch list and prohibit them a high caliber weapon or any weapon. We couldn’t even get that passed. So when you say, ‘What can be done,’ I don’t know the answer to that.”

Democrats pushed terror watch list gun control after recent terror attacks—for example, after San Bernardino (December 2, 2015) and Orlando Pulse (June 12, 2016)—but it was defeated each time because the attackers were not on a list to begin with, thus the push was viewed as more gun control for gun control’s sake.

Yet now, with the number of injuries and casualties inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High still unknown, Smith and Nelson and scolding Congress for not passing more gun control.

    The Left openly pushes the murder of innocent people then demands “gun control” as a solution. The murdering spree by the Left will continue until either they shut down the 2nd Amendment or civil war erupts.

    PAULETTE, I AGREE. THE ISSUE OF INTEREST IS DEMS CLINTON – OBAMA. THEIR AGENDA WAS TO START MARSHALL LAW IN USA. ONE OF THE BIG REASONS FOR THE HILLARY PUSH, WAS TO CONTINUE THE HATE RHETORIC. WHAT KIND OF ROLE MODELS ARE THESE WASTES OF SKIN. KIDS ARE HAVING THE MEDIA PUSHED IN THEIR FACE. IF THERE IS NO CONSEQUENCE FOR THE RICH AND POWERFUL, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO, IS GET RICH, AND YOU ARE ABOVE THE LAW. REMEMBER IT RUNS DOWNHILL. ONE MORE THING. WE SEE EVERY GOVERNOR, AND ANYONE TRYING TO GET ELECTED, GET ON THE BANDWAGON IF I WAS LEADER. YOU KNOW THE DRILL. PEOPLES HEARTS ARE BREAKING AND THIS WILL NOT END.

    I agree with Paulette, and let us not forget to mention MSM who all day disparages, disrespects, and goes negative on everything possible to keep people in fear and without hope. Their flapping lips are just as much a part of this as the Liberals. They cry about what they caused in this country. A disregard for respect, honor, integrity and LAW. If laws are not enforced, why want more of the same?

    The democrats, their MSM to push propaganda, are definitely the cause of increased violence and dividing the country. But everytime there is a shooting dems always run to the same wrong answer. How can educated adults continue to make the same mistake over and over. Look at how well strict gun laws have worked in Chicago. Chicago’s gun murder rate is five times New York’s. The rest of the country is more like the Big Apple than the Windy City.
