I was on duty this past Valentine's Day.
But instead of being bombarded by news stories about love & romance during my shift, my partner and I were subjected to the unfolding story of Nikolas Cruz killing 17 people and wounding 14 more at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL.
Before all the facts were known about this heart-wrenching event; Democrats, the media and celebrities began braying about gun control.
And in keeping with their Never-Let-A-Crisis-Go-To-Waste tactic, they've been braying non-stop ever since.
Brittany Hughes called them out for exploiting traumatized children to push their anti-gun agenda.
Derek Hunter followed-suit, and explained how the leftist Exploitation Machine is rolling on.
Don't think the Left's ultimate goal is to ban all scary-looking rifles?
Well, they seemed to have tipped their hand during a CNN-sponsored townhall meeting two nights ago. Or, as Matt Vespa called it: A North Korean kangaroo court peddling gun confiscation.
The Diplomad warned that the "common sense" gun control leftists advocate will be weaponized like every other agency and program they're in charge of.
The problem, as us like-minded folks see it, isn't the scary-looking guns, but the perpetrators themselves and those who've enabled them.

While Cruz wasn't an "Allahu Akbar" screaming jihadist, he was a known wolf to the FBI, and local law enforcement. But even prior to the "missed" red-flags, Broward County Schools colluded with local law enforcement. Together, they implemented the "Broward County Solution", where a dozen misdemeanor offenses were downgraded to school-related issues.
But the leftist narrative has been dominating the airwaves and cyberspace. Blame is leveled at the Republican Party and the National Rifle Association, instead of with the perpetrator and his enablers.
My first ex-wife tried blaming me for a hurricane. Her logic was: If you didn't join the military, cross train in the Tactical Air Control field, we wouldn't be stationed at Fort Bragg and have to deal with this.
Ever since that watershed event in my Hell-on-Earth first marriage, I'm easily triggered over being blamed for something I didn't do. So as a Republican voter and lifetime member of the NRA, I'm openly hostile against such claims that I, along with fellow voters and members, "have blood on our hands."
Fortunately, instead of me shouting back "BS!" or "Foxtrot Yankee!" to such slander, Kurt Schlichter has more practical advice on how to beat 7 of the terrible leftist gun control arguments.
On the flip-side, Meredith Drake-O'Conner discussed the 6 reasons why your right-wing friend isn't coming to your side on gun control.
Ben Shapiro, meanwhile, advocated a "novel concept:" Have our law enforcement agencies enforce the law.
Which was Item #2 on Kevin McCullough's 7 Simple Steps to Eliminate School Shootings Overnight.

While Mr. McCullough's ideas may, sadly, not completely eliminate school shootings, they'd be more effective than the left's gun-grabbing fetish.
Which they won't find acceptable anyway because it will run contrary to their Anti-Gun Narrative. So unfortunately we'll never know if these steps will actually work.
Instead, we'll be treated to upcoming stunts like the Student Lie-In at the White House (27 Feb), a 17-minute nation-wide walk-out by teachers and students (14 Mar), followed by anti-gun violence demonstrations ten days later.
