Why aren’t the students, that have been bashing the NRA, now apologizing and saying something to the FBI?

Top House Republicans said Wednesday that a senior FBI official had briefed lawmakers on the agency's failure to respond to warnings about the teenager accused of carrying out a deadly shooting at a South Florida high school last month.

Acting FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich met with lawmakers on the House Oversight and Government Reform and Judiciary committees Tuesday to discuss the missteps, which were revealed in the days after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Bowdich acknowledged that the FBI failed to follow its own protocol after it received a tip in January about the accused shooter, Nikolas Cruz, 19, & vowed to take corrective actions, according to a press release issued by Reps. Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte.

The FBI admitted just two days after the Feb. 14 shooting that it received a tip from a person close to Cruz the previous month warning about the teen's gun ownership, desire to kill and erratic behavior.
/5
That tip "should have been assessed as a potential threat to life," the FBI said at the time, but the warnings were never investigated further.

Bowdich told lawmakers on Tuesday that the call to a tip line provided enough information to justify an FBI probe into the matter, lawmakers said, though information was not passed on to the agency's Miami field office.

The person who took the tip line call spoke with their supervisor afterwards, but that conversation was not documented, according to Gowdy and Goodlatte.

Bowdich also said that the employee who took the January phone call was able to connect the warning to

another tip from September regarding a threatening YouTube comment. That comment, posted under the username "nikolas cruz," read, "I am going to be a professional school shooter."

Since the #ParklandSchoolShooting
Liberals have been screaming for
#GunControl #GUNREFORM

The FBI could have stopped this. Law abiding Americans will not give up our rights because of a criminal act and a rogue/weak FBI.

1/ The images were taken in 2014 at a holding center in Texas.

Caged: Congressman Henry Cuellar took these shocking images to highlight how overwhelmed the US authorities are with the recent tide of illegal immigrants.

2/ Young faces: The pictures show just how many of the illegal immigrants are children - many of whom have no supervising adult. Up to 400 a day pouring over the border.
3/ Cheek-by-jowl: The immigrants are crammed in tiny rooms and forced to sleep on the floor with aluminium blankets as their only comfort
