Ever since we first heard about the tragic mass shooting at a South Florida school, seemingly each new day has brought sickening new revelations of all the many ways in which it could have been prevented, but authorities failed to act. There were explicit warnings to the FBI, multiple calls to the sheriff’s department, multiple deputy visits to the shooter’s home, multiple state family agency visits, creepy and threatening social media posts – and all went unheeded. Then came what I assumed had the be absolute lowest mark of failure: the news that a deputy was on the scene, armed and in uniform, and just waited outside the school for five minutes, listening to the gunfire inside as the shooter mowed down unarmed teachers and children.

But just when I thought it couldn’t possibly get any lower than that, the pit of shame got dug deeper with news that there were three other Broward County sheriff’s deputies on the scene – waiting outside with guns drawn, taking shelter behind their cars. When local police showed up and finally dealt with the killer, they were reportedly “stunned and upset” to discover four armed deputies all waiting outside as the slaughter raged on inside. I would substitute more appropriate words than “stunned and upset,” but I try not to use words like that.

From the moment this horrific tragedy occurred, the left has sought to politicize the deaths of those kids and teachers, blaming them on the NRA or legal gun owners, and pushing for more restrictive gun laws that would have had zero effect at stopping this. Some are even urging violence and death against those who disagree with them (if you think this is just hyperbole, remember the violent Antifa thugs and the Bernie Sanders supporter who shot Rep. Steve Scalise and had hoped to kill every Republican on the scene.)

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel had the outrageous gall to appear on national TV on CNN’s propaganda pageant townhall, where he shifted blame and allowed the audience to slander and threaten NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch – knowing all the while that not only had his department ignored dozens of warnings, but he had four deputies on the scene – FOUR! - cowering outside and doing nothing as children were murdered en masse.

https://www.westernjournal.com/dana-loesch-calls-sheriff-nothing-stop-shooter-despite-numerous-warning-signs/

Well, I guess I can’t say they were “doing nothing” – the first deputy we heard about, Scot Peterson, reportedly thought he did “a good job” by calling in the location and description of the shooter and “setting up the perimeter.” That sounds like the type of excuse you’d expect from Deputy Barney Fife, except that Barney would have tried to save those kids, even though he had only one bullet.

This inexcusable behavior by the deputies has caused stories to resurface from 2016, when the sheriff was criticized for allegedly hiring political supporters. Most were in civilian jobs, but at least one was hired as a deputy. In any case, it suggests he had other priorities than hiring the best people for the job.

http://reason.com/blog/2018/02/23/broward-county-sheriff-scott-israel-accu

Those who thought they could use this horrifying tragedy to push a gun control agenda have seen reality turn swiftly and forcefully against them. Their arguments that Americans don’t need guns for self-defense or that we should depend on the authorities to keep us safe have been exposed as misguided and absurd. From the FBI to the state bureaucracy down to the local sheriff’s department, every level of government charged with protecting citizens failed miserably, either from indifference, laziness, incompetence or cowardice. And their solution? More government.

Legal gun owners have a saying: “When seconds count, the police are just minutes away.” But it’s worse than that. Even when some deputies are right outside, just seconds away, defending your life may still be up to you.

    Hey Governor Huckabee,
    I enjoyed your article, very informative, thanks. As you're aware, this is not an NRA problem or a gun problem, unfortunately it's a cultural problem. Semi-automatic weapons or assault rifles, as some call them, have been in the U.S.A. for 135 years. Why is it that we have been experiencing mass shootings on a regular basis for only the last 19 years? What we have is a major system failure. With any system failure there are many variables. We need to identify and study as many as possible and get to work. Some that jump out at me are; the shift from a Biblical society to a objective truth society, natural law, separatism, secularism, Hollywood, family structure breakdown, consumer driven, ideology driven, politically correct, self-importance, etc. etc.. I know I'm only an old country boy, but blaming an inanimate object and each other is like trying to solve world hunger by sewing folks butts shut, it's worthless! In the mean time, it will happen again. The old "United We Stand" is screaming at all of us right now, turn off the cell phones and listen. Today, when people agree, they will text forever, but when people disagree, a wall goes up and we don't work together to improve. There is no quick fix here, no instant pudding, and band aids won't solve the problem. In the mean time I firmly agree that we need to protect our children, and start educating ourselves. We need to understand things like exactly how does a primary psychopath think, study countries that have a long history of passing "gun control" laws and still have 3X more shootings in a year than the United States with almost 3X less the population. As an inactive Marine and Sheepdog, I would be honored to volunteer my time at a school to protect our kids and I feel confident other retired Veterans and Police Officers would be motivated to participate as well. As far as Teachers being armed, only they can tell you if they're capable. Much obliged for your time.
    God Bless you & yours,
    & God Bless America!
    Semper Fi!

    In the discussion about arming teachers at schools, there have been arguments as to whether Israeli teachers are armed. One news report explained that in the past, the Israeli government mandated that a certain percentage of teachers be armed, but over time, some teachers didn't want to, for various reasons, fewer teachers were armed, and so it became mandatory to have armed guards at every school. Israeli schools are fenced in with a security guard at the gate, and no one gets in without showing ID, being able to say the name of the their child and so on. Those who do not belong there are not let in, and people carrying weapons are not let in. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/12/30/armed-teachers-guards-key-to-school-security-in-israel.html
    However, proper training of law enforcement and following the law could have prevented more than one of the school tragedies here, since law enforcement should be more knowledgeable about their options when people make threats about shooting - arrest them for communicating threats, or if there is evidence of mental illness, use the legal process to get them medically examined. We have laws that would have protected, but law enforcement ignored laws already on the books, and did nothing from start to finish in this tragedy that seems to have started a very long time ago.

    What's the straight story on Sheriff Issac? Is the story true that he handed out jobs, non-law enforcement, to friends and family? What is the Sheriff Department's OFFICIAL POLICY/Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) on attacks at schools? IS THERE AN SOP? It doesn't make sense that the SOP would require the Deputies to 'Stand Down' while students and teachers were being murdered. There is something REALLY WRONG in Broward County. It is VERY HARD to believe 4 Deputies were derelict in their duties. That Deputy Scott Peterson is reported as saying he'd done all he could do, by setting up the perimeter. Really? REALLY?!! Other local officers ran into the school building AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVED. Gov Huckabee this smells REALLY BAD...somethings up.
    The Deputies arrived sooner and STAYED OUTSIDE; while local officers charged INTO THE BUILDING as soon as they got there. Also, after his possible gross negligence of duty; Peterson is allowed to retire with all his benefits - and 17 PEOPLE ARE DEAD because he DID NOTHING?

    There definitely is plenty of blame to go around. However, I'm a retired/disabled soldier. I know that there are SOP's for these situations. The Deputies STOOD DOWN and 17 are DEAD. How much of this should be at the Sheriff's feet? Someone, may be Florida State Troopers or the state's AG should give this a good, deep cleaning.

    None of us should ever take for granted that the law (government) will always protect us. Sometimes they cannot do it physically and other times they fail out of mental mistakes or in the case of some of these highschool students; they failed due to cowardice and obvious poor performance of their commanders (sheriff).

    I am going to ask a hard question. Were those four deputies ordered to stand down? Their seemingly personal cowardice is shameful enough as is but if some "official" kept them from doing what they are supposed to do exposes the utter failure of the local law enforcement. I realize the sheriff's department will close ranks and stonewall. However is this not a valid question to ask? That community deserves a full accounting of events on that tragic day.

    Should be called "Coward Count Sheriff" It makes you sick to learn that not just one, but four deputies were standing outside afraid to do the job they hired on to do. We protect politicians and celebrities with guns, police protect the citizens with guns, why wouldn't we want to arm teachers, janitors, or any other employee of a school district that is willing to arm themselves with concealed carry weapon to protect our children? It's just common sense.

    It is a shame that men (I use the term loosely) were at the school and heard the shooting and did nothing to stop it, did not enter the building, cowards with no excuse. They all should be forced to line up in front of the parents of the victims and explain their cowardice. They are paid to 'serve and protect' and they did nothing. They should be discharged from their duties and forced to pay back all the $$ they earned in their job over the years since they obviously were not doing it and the one time when they could have saved lives the chickened out. The Sheriff should be let go as well since obviously he hired the inept deputies and his leadership is definitely lacking and probably led to the cowards lack of action.

    So for armed deputies were on scene and did nothing to preserve life and protect others during this tragedy?! What has our society devolved to? We refuse to allow people to protect themselves but we demonize the people who are hired to protect us and those that are actually hard to protect us or cowering calling everything in as if they were reporter. Meanwhile in Texas a single man with a firearm that is demonized saved many lives by running back to his residence to grab a firearm and stopping an assailant. Afterwards he is Painted Black because the tools he used was one that was out of favor with the masses. I am ashamed and honestly appalled to share citizenry with the populace that has become more like sheep then like people. These are not the Americans my grandfather knew, my father knew and I was raised to respect.

I know a worker who travels from school to school for maintenance issues, and he has never been asked to open his tool bag for search. I find this really not good. If you ask the Israelis what they do for school security, you would find out how to make a school a safer place. They know how to train teachers and staff.

    Did you know that Sheriff Israel of Broward County was also the head of the Hillary for president campaign in that area. So much for objectivity, fairness, discernment on the part of the head law enforcement man in that county. Anyone who has four deputies, count them...FOUR paid employees of the State of Florida who are present outside Parkland High School while mayhem goes on inside while cowering behind their patrol cars with pistols in quivering hands, is a reprehensible leader and needs to go. Yet the sheriff had the audacity to lecture Dana Loesch of the NRA about gun violence when he is the leader of cowards.

    When they were sworn in they took an oath to protect lives and property.
    I hope that they, the Sheriff and the county will have to cough up millions of dollars in civil damages and that the four deputies are fired and never able to serve in a Law Enforcement position again.

    It is no longer to protect and serve, but is all about to collect a paycheck that is higher than the civilian average because of the danger involved in law enforcement and make it through 20 years unscathed so the full salary pension can be collected before the age of 40.

Maybe he was new and unsure - maybe he wanted to but afraid he'd lose his job...don't know if he went through any soul searching or what. When others showed up and did nothing - I see no excuse for that

    This Sheriff, Scott Israel, needs FIRING! Obviously, no more than a self-aggrandizing political hack. He, and his politically appointed deputies love their flashy uniforms, possibly their inflated feeling of power over the "lawful" folk, but lack the "sand" required when having to deal with more than the town drunk! Ahh, return with me to the days of yesteryear, when "G-Men" faced down real "bad men," like Pretty Boy Floyd, Machine Gun Kelley, Dillinger, Capone - NOT these slimy, milky-toast, COWARDLY killers of children!

    Guns are NOT what has caused America's cultural decline - as in Americans have lost the culture war. Mr. Huck, somebody NEEDS to be highlighting the cause/s for the why of our "killer society!" Consider these over some Gun contributing factor:

    Positive responses are at record highs for the moral acceptability of birth control (91 percent), divorce (73 percent), sex between an unmarried man and woman (69 percent), homosexual relations (63 percent), out-of-wedlock birth (62 percent), abortion (43 percent), pornography (36 percent). AND, even MORE to the point:

    In 1960, barely 2 percent of all American children, from all racial and ethnic backgrounds, lived with a never married parent. By 2008, 41 percent of black children, 18 percent of Hispanic children, and 7 percent of white children lived in a home with an unmarried parent.

    Over this same period of time, from 1960 to 2008, the percentage of white adults that are married dropped from 74 percent to 56 percent, Hispanic adults from 72 percent to 50 percent, and black adults from 61 percent to 32 percent. Since that “legislating from the bench” SCOTUS decree in ’73, Americans have killed the equivalent of entire populations of several ‘countries’ through abortion - 61 million and counting. We definitely are reaping what has been sown. What "if" just one of those 61 million had been another Jonas Salk, or even an Einstein - cancer cured(?), think NOT that America has been and continues to PAY A BIG PRICE!

    Mr Huckabee, you say govt failed on all levels in this horrible incident, but that's only true from a constitutionalist, law and order perspective. If viewed from the perspective of the globalist Left, the govt was spectacularly successful. After all, they once again ALLOWED a mass murder to occur, one they easily could have prevented, in order to further their agenda and ideology. And now, amazingly, we have organized teen age anti gun activists staging events nationwide, mere days after the incident. Coincidence? How many times do these mass murders need to be accommodated by the Left before the Right stands up and calls it what it is - their agenda is more important to them than our kids and fellow citizens. Yes, four deputies hid outside the school, but they are being lead by a Sheriff who is a known gun control proponent and who sidled up to HRC. Coincidence?? Love you Brother Mike, but let's start calling this for what it is...

    Interesting that a Leftist political "Sheriff" had 4 (FOUR!) deputies acting the same way during a school shooting. He stated the deputy should've gone in to stop the slaughter, indicating THAT was their training. Of course what happened needs to be investigated, but, FOUR were merely "cowards" as some are saying? Add to this mystery that his dept was called to the shooters HOME 35-39 times, & (if I understood correctly) there were another 18 PHONE calls to his office by citizens TRYING to keep this disturbed young man from hurting people. Yet, Sheriff Israel then publicly shamed Dana & the NRA as "being responsible"?! And said nothing less than "less guns" would've stopped this shooter?! OUTRAGEOUS! If it had been just ONE deputy of his who froze up, it would've been bad enough. But FOUR?! Resulting in 17 dead & many others wounded?! SHERIFF ISRAEL MUST GO! Heads MUST "roll", in EVERY AGENCY THAT FAILED THESE INNOCENT KIDS!

    And I'd like to know more about exactly WHAT the school Admin did to try to get authorities involved. I hear they won't release his school records "due to privacy". After Cruz showed up at the school with a back pack of knives, & all the other incidents at school, did the Admin do anything ELSE but tell Cruz he "wasn't allowed back on school grounds with a back pack,"? We're hearing TOO LITTLE about the school's efforts.
