Loesch on School Walkouts: It Wasn't Trump & NRA Who Missed '45 Calls' About Shooter
Children at thousands of schools walked out of classes Wednesday morning for 17 minutes to remember the 17 people killed by a gunman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Feb. 14.
Loesch said she supports the students' First Amendment right to express their views, but said Democrats are trying to "exploit" the situation for political gain.
Chants of "Hey, hey, ho, ho. The NRA has got to go!" and "What do we want? Gun control! When do we want it? Now!" could be heard from the crowds.
Loesch also questioned why no one is talking about Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and his deputies failing to act after 45 calls about the troubled state of the teen gunman, including warnings from his mother before she died.
"President Trump wasn't the one down in Parkland not paying attention to the 45 calls, nor were any law-abiding gun owners," said Loesch on "Fox & Friends."
Loesch said officials at the high school knew Nikolas Cruz was telling therapists about his "gory fantasies" about school shootings before he was kicked out.
"Ultimately, the murderer is the one responsible," she said, adding that the FBI also missed tips about Cruz.
