Narrative Fail: Americans Blame Florida School Shooting on Government Failures NOT Guns
Nearly 60 percent of adults blame the Florida high school shooting on government failures and not on guns.
On February 14th 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 adults and children at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida.
The FBI was warned at least twice about the killers homicidal threats and local authorities visited the murderer’s home over 40 times before the mass shooting.
Almost 60 percent of adults blame government failures, not a lack of gun control, for the failure to prevent the school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, according to a Rasmussen poll of 1,000 adults.
The pollster asked:
Which is more to blame for the mass shooting at the Florida high school? The failure of government agencies to respond to numerous warning signs? The lack of adequate gun control?
Fifty-four percent of all adults blamed government failures, while 33 percent blamed the lack of gun control. Eleven percent says “something else.”
The 54 percent blaming government included 56 percent of men, 44 percent of African-Americans, 76 percent of Republicans, 36 percent of Democrats, and 57 percent of people with adults at home.
