But the mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 2018, which killed 17, shook Stack to the core.
When Stack learned that the teen charged with the shooting had bought a shotgun at a Dick's store, he decided to make changes. It didn't matter to him that the gun wasn't used in the attack.
"We had a pit in our stomach," he told CNN soon after the shooting. "We did everything by the book that we were supposed to do, from a legal standpoint, we followed everything we were supposed to do. And somehow this kid was still able to buy a gun from us."
ok so believed in purple wing flying unacorns too exsist

Evidently a clueless type, who can't seem to separate stone-cold killers from his sportsmen customers.

This man must be a "well intentioned person" who has formulated his world view through TV, Mass Media, Fake News, and a liberal college education. He is led to this erroneous business decision by the School Board and Sheriff of Broward County through the Obama-era hearlded and Chicago School Board originated "Promise Program" that kept shooter Nicholas Cruz OFF of the police and FBI radar. This lethal mix is playing out at a school near you.

Who's school, child center, church, sporting event, grocery store, etc., is next? Mass shootings are not going to be thwarted by the knee jerk and erroneous reaction of CEO Stack and Dick's Sporting Goods - good riddance. Try voting for some careful thought based integrity next time. "Well intentioned people" (namely bleeding heart liberals and DEMOCRATS) let Nicholas Cruz skate to this mass murder. "Well intentioned people" (namely liberals and Democrats) always make "unintended consequence" decisions that screw the rest of us.

The truth will set you free. Here is what we KNOW about the Parkland School Shooting obfuscation. The last link's title says it ALL: Hide, deny, spin, threaten: How the school district tried to mask failures that led to Parkland shooting
