FBI failed to deal with Nikolas Cruz warnings twice, Rick Scott calls for Christopher Wray to resign

Daily Wire lists some examples of the FBI keeps dropping the ball on notices linked to these mass shootings:

Former FBI Director James Comey told reporters in July 2015 that the agency failed to stop the Charleston church shooter from purchasing a gun because of flaws in the FBI’s background check system — the shooter had been arrested for a felony in February, but the FBI didn’t enter it into the federal database.

And in November 2017, we found out that the Air Force didn’t report the Texas church shooter’s domestic violence conviction to the FBI — a report that would have prevented him from purchasing weapons under current law.

As Jim Geraghty of National Review points out, see something, say something only works if the law enforcement community does something. And here they did nothing. We know that the Parkland shooter’s home was visited by deputies some 39 times since 2010, that he was expelled from school for disciplinary reasons, that his classmates thought he was violent, that school officials believed he had been banned from campus. That didn’t stop him from purchasing a gun, walking onto campus, and murdering 17 people.
