Kirsters Baish| Despite the liberal narrative that every single shooting can be blamed on the NRA, the facts simply do not support this. The Santa Fe shooter was not affiliated with the NRA. Neither was the Parkland, Florida shooter. The left wants to blame anyone who has a differing opinion than they do, but we will not allow this false narrative to brainwash the citizens of our country any longer.
It’s important to take a look at the motivation of a suspect who commits a crime as heinous as a school shooting. The problem tends to remain that the left would rather use gun control as a viable solution for every single issue in our country. This simply isn’t logical. We can’t blame guns for people who are mentally unstable. If we allow the left to take our guns away, we have no protection against a mentally ill person wielding a firearm.
It seems that the Santa Fe school shooter, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, was bullied by both his peers and coaches prior to bringing a gun to school and opening fire on his classmates and teachers.
The Daily Wire reports that a journalist working for Click2Houston conducted a brief interview with a surviving student of the Santa Fe shooting. The reporter asked the unidentified student if he knew the suspect, and requested that he give a brief description.
The student explained, “He’s been picked on by coaches before for smelling bad and stuff like that and he doesn’t really talk to very many people. He wears a trench coat every day and it’s like 90 degrees out here. I heard that he wore a shirt today and it said ‘born to kill,’ the shirt he was wearing, I don’t even know how the school can allow that.”
The student explained that prior to the shooting, the gunman was called names by students and coaches alike. The Click2Houston reporter questioned the student as to how he felt about things in our country today. It seemed as though he was pushing the student in the direction of talking about gun control.
The student didn’t take the bait, however. Instead of giving some explanation about how it would be safer if guns were off the street and place blame on the NRA, the student gave a very different answer.
He explained, “I think it’s stupid, the coaches can’t talk to students like that and make fun of them. That’s their fault, and strictly their fault. Not the kid’s fault, but their fault, no one has talked to him or tried to be nice to him.”
He continued, observing that the school could have had a more appropriate response during the time that the shooting was happening. The reporter then asked him what he felt the school could have done differently.
“No, they pulled the fire alarm and got everyone in one position, that’s not smart,” the boy answered. “They should have done the right thing and left the people in the classrooms.”
