The blood has barely dried outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and liberals are up to their usual tricks.
As hundreds of thousands of people offered prayers to those slain by gunman Nikolas Cruz, liberals mocked them, calling their prayers to God worthless.
Then there was Cruz’s Instagram picture wearing a MAGA hat, proof, liberals asserted, that the shooter is a Trump supporter. That was a load of nonsense, of course. Cruz is clearly a disturbed person who values violence over human life.
Now, we have liberal journalists claiming that President Trump is somehow to blame for this shooting because he signed into law a bill that made it easier for mentally ill people to purchase guns.
Reminder: Trump quietly signed a bill into law last February rolling back an Obama-era regulation that made it harder for people with mental illnesses to purchase a gun. https://t.co/qVLvABiLiE https://t.co/acrKw1kvst

tbt when Trump decided it was too hard for severely mentally ill people to get guns, so he signed a bill to fix that https://t.co/3tBzlgVMdr

There is so much baloney here it would make a sandwich explode with embarrassment. Conservatives instantly pounced on the deceptive reporting:
This is deeply misleading, and it would be wonderful if literally one person in the media would report on this correctly https://t.co/OFa6UBCUZl

The bill signed into law by President Trump had nothing to do with Cruz’s crime. It was designed to not strip Social Security recipients of their gun rights.
Even the ACLU supported Trump’s move, writing, “This month, Congress repealed a rule that would have registered thousands of Social Security recipients with mental disabilities, who have others manage their benefits, into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System to prevent them from owning firearms.”
Given that Cruz is 19 years old, obviously he wasn’t going to be signing onto the Social Security rolls anytime soon. Any assertion that the Florida shooting is Trump’s fault is disgusting slander.
