President Joe Biden took advantage of the third anniversary of the Parkland school shooting to call for stricter gun control laws.
For most Americans who only ever followed the story of Parkland through the mainstream media, that call made sense. Most journalists only cared about my daughter's murder and the murder of 16 others as far as they could use it to prop up their own political agenda through an opportunistic teenager who has now become a partisan pillow salesman.
But for me, having done a thorough investigation into what went wrong and why in Parkland and in other school shootings in recent years, I expect Joe Biden’s gun control proposals to have about as much effect stopping school shootings as David Hogg’s pillows.
For all the sound and fury about the fact that the Parkland shooter used an AR-15, the fact is that he could have used a musket and murdered as many kids. That’s because the police gave him 11 minutes all to himself in a building with 800 kids.
