I said it numerous times on Facebook, how did the Gun-free School Zones Act of 1990 come about?

It was then-Senator Biden that introduced & sponsored that legislation. Before it was passed & signed into law, it was commonplace to see rifles & shotguns in vehicles on school grounds, & you rarely heard of school shootings.

Both MSRs that the shooter purchased, were done via an FFL, so a background check was done. There is however the issue of his grandfather, who has stated himself that he is a prohibited person, & that there were not supposed to be any firearms in the house.

Some fall into the trap that it is the firearm.

The idea it is the firearm is the left's, democratic, communist's all the same in one idea.

All the push for where he brought it, how long he had it, how old he was when he brought it.

Is all a ploy to demonize the firearm and push more control.

Then place the blame on the actual problem the person who committed the crime.

The left loves crime it furthers their agenda.

someone s'plain to me why the federal agency of US Border Patrol enter the civilian school and then...

per https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/texas-shooting-police-response-1.6466499, quote:
"Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz did not give a timeline but said repeatedly that the tactical officers from his agency who arrived at the school did not hesitate. He said they moved quickly to enter the building, lining up in a "stack" behind an agent holding up a shield.
"What we wanted to make sure is to act quickly, act swiftly, and that's exactly what those agents did," Ortiz told Fox News.

But a law enforcement official said that once in the building, the Border Patrol agents had trouble breaching the classroom door [R E A L L Y!!] and had to get a staff member to open the room with a key. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk publicly about the investigation."

so this governmental agency's charter allows them to affect insert their presence in to STATE/CITY level criminal incidents?

are they trained appropriately and who is responsible when they fail to follow state/law?

finally...QI apply?

[sidebar...shades of friendly fire ~wonder if those student's who succumbed will have autopsies to determine whose bullets killed them

That's an interesting point. Texas law doesn't recognize CBP as "special investigators", and they don't have any state LE authority outside their own checkpoints.

When they entered the school, they had the same legal status as if a group of parents doing the same.
