Shep Smith, Sen. Bill Nelson Push Gun Control Before Florida School Shooting Details Known

Fox News’ Shepard Smith and Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) scolded Congress for not a passing a terror watch list gun ban before the number of fatalities at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was even known.

The high school is located in Parkland, Florida, where someone opened fire at roughly 2 p.m.

During live broadcast coverage on Wednesday, Sen. Nelson opened the door to a gun control discussion by saying, “Each time this happens, and how many have happened? We say, ‘Enough is enough,’ and then it happens again.”

Smith responded, “What could Congress do?”

Nelson said, “Well, we could not even [pass a bill] that would take the terrorist watch list and prohibit them a high caliber weapon or any weapon. We couldn’t even get that passed. So when you say, ‘What can be done,’ I don’t know the answer to that.”

Democrats pushed terror watch list gun control after recent terror attacks—for example, after San Bernardino (December 2, 2015) and Orlando Pulse (June 12, 2016)—but it was defeated each time because the attackers were not on a list to begin with, thus the push was viewed as more gun control for gun control’s sake.

Yet now, with the number of injuries and casualties inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High still unknown, Smith and Nelson and scolding Congress for not passing more gun control.

    I guess that the gun is to blame so why is this kid or anyone else in jail for using a firearm to commit a crime? Liberals love it when people are killed by a firearm because it helps them to further their gun control agendas. The victims are nothing more than pawns and after that they are worthless to them. Why don’t we try to stop other things that kill more Americans than those killed with a firearm? Why doesn’t the media or anyone else talk about lives being saved with firearms? Yes it doesn’t help to further their agendas. I really think that liberals are more mentally ill than these shooters like the shooter today is. Fox News should ship Shep to CNN where he will fit in with all the other brainwashed lame stream media morons work.

    Here’s an idea….let’s just take the guns from the Democrats, they seem to be the ones that have lost their minds….when they kicked God out of our schools , they opened the door for Satan …and he is wasting no time .

      I agree with you. It seems that when ever one of these things happens it is a whacked out democrat doing it. Add to that the majority of the democratic leadership will soon be facing indictments and probable convictions. The dems are in deep stuff.

    Shepard Smith ( I really used liked him ) is becoming ” That nasty little old lady on the block” who does nothing except beat the bushes to see what comes out. Within one hour they were talking guns and what to do now.

    another massacre at a gun free zone I call gun free zones the firing range for terrorist to get experience with moving target there is no one to stop them the law requires that. And you dont hear much about the ones that are prevented [over 27 that i know of] no one hears about that is because NO ONE WAS KILLED [except the bad guy and most of the time not even the bad guy] there is no “news” if no one was hurt or killed!!!!
