Florida School Shooter Bought AR-15 Legally
We are still in the wake of the disturbing and tragic murders that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School yesterday, but we today we get more information about the shooter.
19-year-old Nikolas Cruz used a legally purchased AR-15 machine gun to take the lives of 17 of his former classmates at the Florida school.
Cruz’s adopted mother died back in November and his new family says he owned the gun when he came to live with them according to NYDailyNews.
“It was his gun,” family lawyer Jim Lewis said. “The family made him keep it in a locked gun cabinet in the house but he had a key.”
In addition to the firearm, Cruz was carrying a gas mask and smoke grenades.
Per usual, police are digging into Nikolas’ social media usage and have found “very disturbing” things like gory photos of animals he had killed and comments on YouTube pages about wanting to be a “professional school shooter”.
There isn’t a HELL hot enough for this POS. On the next page, watch a former FBI agent break down into tears while talking about gun violence against children.
