As expected, liberal lawmakers and the mainstream media didn’t wait long after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, to start pushing gun control. But, unfortunately for MSNBC anchor Brian Williams, a high school student who survived the shooting completely undercut his anti-gun narrative.
Brandon Minoff, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, joined Williams on Wednesday night to discuss the shooting. When Williams asked Minoff what recommendations he would make to lawmakers in effort to prevent future shootings, Minoff’s answer was the exact opposite of what Williams wanted or expected.
“If you were a lawmaker, an adult in a decision-making position, how would you stop, do you think, the kind of thing that happened today?” Williams asked. “A kid who’d been thrown out, he comes back with a weapon, and takes out whatever grievance he’s been walking around with in his head.”
Minoff’s response was priceless. “Gun-wise I don’t think there’s any way to prevent it,” he said. “You outlaw guns it just creates a higher demand for it.”
What do you know, a high schooler who knows better than our country’s lawmakers. Minoff also added that, in this particular shooting, mental health definitely played a role. “I think it has to do with mental health, though. If he’s been expelled three different times from three different schools, I think he needs to be helped out.”
Classmates of the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, aren’t surprised that he did this – and that’s fairly unique among school shootings. All reports seem to indicate that Nikolas Cruz needed mental and emotional help, and while he did receive therapy at a mental health clinic, he stopped going about a year ago. The system failed him. Minoff is 100 percent correct – gun control is not what lawmakers should be looking at here.
