There is No Such Thing as an “Armed Victim”

After a number of students were killed at Santa Fe High School in Texas, many people were expecting the tragic event to become Parkland 2.0 — that is, wall-to-wall interviews with students twisting a tragedy into a political opportunity for the left.

Well, that’s not what happened, and it’s easy to see why. What happened at Santa Fe doesn’t fit into the narrative constructed in the immediate aftermath of the Parkland shooting. Unlike the previous incident, this shooting didn’t involve an AR-15, and many of the laws the left is proposing to stop people from owning guns were already own the books.

For example, the shooter in this scenario didn’t use semi-automatic weapons. He was also able to get his hands on the weapons despite being 17 — which is already illegal in Texas. Now, this isn’t as bad as the FBI ignoring over 30 formal complaints about the person as was seen in Parkland, but it does throw another wrench in the left’s argument that more gun laws could have prevented this tragedy.

Santa Fe isn’t being thrown in your face each and every day because there really isn’t a whole lot the left can use it for.
