STASI: You can keep your thoughts and prayers, Trump, but ban assault weapons now

We don’t want your prayers and we don’t need your thoughts and wishes, President Trump. And all of you, you members of Congress and senators just shut up and stay off of TV if you have any shred of morality left especially if you have refused to vote for gun control.

Seventeen innocent, frightened students and staff were shot dead in a public high school and how does our President respond? He tweets. “My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.”

Really? Then ban assault weapons. Then stop telling everyone that the terrorists are coming, the terrorists are coming when the terrorists are here and they are us. WE kill one another by the thousands and thousands in more than one mass shooting every single day in this country.

Mother charged after 14-year-old son allegedly stockpiled weapons for school shooting

The mother of a 14-year-old who police say planned to shoot multiple classmates at his Pennsylvania high school was charged on Monday in connection to the foiled plot, authorities said.

Lenora Ann Hendrix, of Markleysburg, Pennsylvania, was charged with knowingly and intentionally delivering or providing a firearm to a minor, according to ABC affiliate WTAE, after her son threatened to carry out a mass shooting at Uniontown High School last month.

The teen, who wasn’t indentified, was taken into police custody on Jan. 25, just days after mass shootings at high schools in Kentucky and Texas. A witness reported that she overheard the suspect saying he would kill four classmates he disliked, officials said.

‘Casino hole’ let Vegas mass murderer get weapons to room, high-roller claims

A high-rolling professional gambler for years warned the FBI that blatant holes in security at casinos worldwide made them soft targets for terrorists wanting to commit mass atrocities.

Shooter Stephen Paddock used multiple assault weapons to kill 59 people and injure more than 500 others, as he sprayed bullets at 40,000 concert-goers across the street from his 32nd floor Las Vegas hotel room.

American gambler R.J. Cipriani, who also goes by the moniker Robin Hood 702, told nine.com.au it was an “abomination” that security was so weak at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Cipriani said the death toll inflicted by mass murderer Paddock could have easily numbered in the hundreds if he had entered the gaming floor of the Mandalay Bay and unzipped his bag of weapons.

The Mandalay Bay, like many other Las Vegas hotels, is also home to vast conference halls, regularly packed with international business people and audiences.

Feds investigate how SC mass murderer Kohlhepp amassed weapons

Though serial killer Todd Kohlhepp is now serving life in prison, federal agencies continue to examine how he amassed an arsenal of weapons.

Both the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are still investigating the Kohlhepp case, according to documents, and part of that investigation centers on his collection of at least dozens of firearms.

A search of Kohlhepp’s home in Moore and property in Woodruff at the time of his arrest found an extensive collection of firearms, ammunition, suppressors, tactical vests and accessories. The case files also mention several pallets full of ammunition.

A Barrett Model 83A1 semi-automatic .50 caliber rifle and a Beretta Model 92FS semi-automatic pistol with an Ultima 9 mm Sound Suppressor are among the many items of evidence that were tested by SLED, according to documents.
