NRA’s Loesch on FL Shooting: Blame Broward County Sheriff’s ‘Abdication of Duty,’ Not Gun Owners

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said the focus should not be on gun control but instead on the Broward County, FL Sheriff’s Department for its actions leading up to and during the Parkland school shooting.

Loesch said, “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.”

She added, “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.”
