HYPOCRISY: Anti-2A Sheriff Scott Israel Hires Same Attorney as Parkland Shooter Gun Salespeople

Published

on

A new revelation has emerged in the story of embattled Sheriff Scott J. Israel of the Broward County, FL Sheriff’s Office.

Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer dropped more bombshell news in an interview with 850WFTL this morning, on the heels of her report that Israel will be removed as Sheriff next week.

Not only is Israel inept, he is also a hypocrite.

Israel, who has taken an anti-Second Amendment stance since the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 dead, has retained former FBI Agent and Criminal Defense attorney Stuart Kaplan to defend him.

LISTEN to the explosive interview:

In a massive conflict of interest, Kaplan is also defending Michael and Lisa Morrison, owners of Sunrise Tactical Supply, the gun store that allegedly sold suspected shooter Nikolas Cruz the AR-15 he used in the massacre.

Furthermore, Kaplan is a CNN contributor and guest.

Kaplan addressed the media with fellow defense attorney Douglas Rudman regarding their defense of the gun store owners on February 15:

Not only has Israel hired the same attorney as Sunrise Tactical, but Kaplan’s tenure in the FBI presents another clear conflict of interest. Kaplan speaks as an expert on the FBI regularly for CNN. He has an undoubtable interest in defending the nation’s top law enforcement agency. Yet he will be representing Israel and Sunrise Tactical in potential lawsuits that could pit him directly against the FBI.

Loomer reported this week that Florida Governor Rick Scott has called for the FBI Director Christopher Wray’s resignation over the agency’s handling of the Parkland shooting. Both the FBI and Broward Sheriff’s office were warned multiple times – the Sheriff’s office 35 times – about Cruz’s violent behavior. The negligence of both organizations has been widely discussed.

Loomer wrote:

“During the IG’s testimony last week, FBI director Christopher Wray was asked about the Parkland school shooting. When asked, Wray declined to answer any questions about the shooting and Sheriff Israel, citing that it was an active FBI investigation. Following the Parkland shooting, Governor Scott called for Director Wray to resign over the FBI’s failure to properly investigate Nikolas Cruz, 19, the school shooter whose plans to carry out a school shooting were reported to the FBI twice prior to the shooting on Valentine’s Day.

‘We constantly promote ‘see something, say something,’ and a courageous person did just that to the FBI. And the FBI failed to act. ‘See something, say something’ is an incredibly important tool and people must have confidence in the follow through from law enforcement. The FBI Director needs to resign,’ Governor Scott said.”

Loomer Passage Ends.

The Sheriff has been particularly outspoken about the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, the same one used by Nikolas Cruz during the Parkland shooting and purchased from Sunrise Tactical supply.

“It produces great carnage. It’s a devastating weapon,” Israel said on MSNBC on February 15, the day after the shooting.

Loomer was quick to nail the Sheriff for his hypocrisy on Twitter:

“[Scott Israel] wants you to know that he’s SO ANTI GUN & ANTI AR15 that he personally hired Criminal defense attorney Stuart Kaplan, who is also *coincidentally* a former FBI agent who’s also representing the gun store owners who sold the #Parkland shooter an AR15,” she wrote.

Hunter Pollack, brother of Meadow Pollack who was slain in the shooting, also weighed in on Twitter.

“The [Broward Sheriff] who begs for gun control, is being represented by the lawyer who represents the gun store owner that sold 18-1958 his gun. So much corruption, conflict of interest? ,” he said.

It is also noteworthy that 850WFTL ambushed Loomer, failing to disclose to her that Kaplan would be co-hosting this morning’s episode of the radio show.

Texas Gun Rights Endorses Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Luther is running for the Texas Senate.

Published

on

Earlier this month, pro-Second Amendment organization Texas Gun Rights PAC endorsed Shelley Luther in her run for Texas State Senate.

Luther gained national attention for her refusal to close down her salon in Dallas, Texas, which was in violation of Dallas, County’s lockdown order. She would end up in jail for violating the order but would later be set free after Texas Governor Greg Abbott took action to release her.

Chris McNutt, the Director of Texas Gun Rights PAC, issued a statement on Texas Gun Rights PAC’s endorsement of Luther:

It is clear Shelley Luther is the strongest pro-gun candidate running to fill the Senate District 30 seat being vacated by Pat Fallon. Texas Gun Rights PAC is proud to endorse Shelley Luther for Senate in the September 29th Special Election.

“Even before Shelley decided to run for office, she proved she had the courage to stand up and fight against an overreaching government without backing down,” McNutt added. “So it’s no surprise Shelley Luther was also the first candidate in the Senate District 30 race to take a bold, pro-gun stance.”

Constitutional Carry is one of Luther’s legislative priorities for the 2021 legislative session. This issue has been a priority for the Texas Republican Party during the last 6 years. Drew Springer, Luther’s opponent in the Senate election, never supported Constitutional Carry.

Passing Constitutional Carry legislation is part of Luther’s campaign platform and has been a top priority of the Republican Party of Texas for the past 6 years. Her opponent, State Representative Drew Springer, has never backed Constitutional Carry since he came into office back in 2012.

“State Representative Drew Springer claims to be ‘pro-gun,’ and yet he repeatedly refused to co-author Constitutional Carry every year that it was introduced,” commented McNutt. “Pro-gun Texans in Senate District 30 need a leader who is willing to fight for the Second Amendment like Shelley Luther, not another political backbencher looking for a job promotion.”

Should Constitutional Carry be passed, Texas would be the 16th state with this law.

Thanks to the political establishment’s constant legislative roadblocking, Constitutional Carry has had a considerable amount of trouble in being passed in the Lone Star State.

With politicians like Luther potentially in the mix, Constitutional Carry has a stronger chance of being passed.  America First patriots living in Texas Senate District 30 should resoundingly vote for Luther due to her firm commitment to limited government.
