NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch spoke to NBC news and insisted the attention shouldn’t be on gun control but rather Broward County, FL Sheriff’s Department for its failure to effectively act during the Parkland school shooting.
Loesch stated, “Can we look at what could have prevented this? That firearm didn’t walk itself into the school. An individual who was allowed to go unchecked by the Broward County Sheriff’s office allowed that firearm to go into the school. It’s not the fault nor are 5 million law-abiding Americans culpable for this.”
“I wish that as much attention were given to the Broward County Sheriff and their abdication of duty as trying to blame five million innocent, law-abiding gun owners all across the country.”
