Dallas Sportscaster On School Shooting: “Since It’s Almost Always A White Kid, There’s Just Nothing We Can Do”

Dale Hansen is a WFAA sportscaster whose “Extra Point” segments sometimes go viral; we’ve featured his work here multiple times. Yesterday, he turned his attention to the school shooting in Florida, one of eight already this year. An excerpt:

Another high school shooting yesterday, this one in Florida. Seventeen dead, the last report I saw. And everybody sends their “thoughts and prayers” again because that works so well. [...]

America has five percent of the world’s population, and yet 31 percent of the world’s mass shootings. We’re worried about people coming to this country. They should be worried about us going to theirs. [...]

Last time I said we need to find a way to stop a nut with a gun—and that’s all I said—I get an email saying, “I’m saving my last bullet to put it right between your eyes.” Just another responsible gun owner in America.
