Florida High School Shooter Bought 10 Rifles Before His Killing Spree

In yet another post delving into Florida High School shooter Nikolas Cruz’s history of abuse, violent threats and mental illness, CNN reported on Tuesday that the shooter – who has been charged with murdering 17 of his classmates during a shooting last Wednesday – had obtained 10 rifles in the year before he went on his killing spree.


Let’s see, he had $800,000 in a trust fund that he couldn’t touch until he was 22 and worked a a Dollar Store, yet he could afford to buy 10 rifles in the preceding year…..

    He was living at home, so he probably didn’t have any living expenses. Minimum wage and 20 hours a week would have made him $7000 a year. He had a S&W M&P Sport, which goes for under $500. A Ruger American, under $500. So it is possible he could have bought 10 rifles on just his Dollar Store wages.

    Not sure how his trust is set up, but the IRS does require some trusts to make yearly payments. So he might have gotten a check for $20,000 or so without touching the capital of the trust. That is a question for money managers and lawyers.

    I don’t like conspiracies but this is beginning to look some what fishy. if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck and quacks like a duck maybe it is a duck

    • bogsidebunny says:

      A conspiracy, Paul? Like the Los Vegas mystery shoot you mean? Yup and there’s a couple of more mass shootings that defy common logic as well. Maybe the Clinton one “double-tap” at a time Arkancide squad has ventured into new expansive territory. And maybe George Soros pays bigger bounties than Bill & Hillary.

    I read this before, “Broward County set up a policy that impeded contact between the police and antisocial behavior at school.



    If there are other policies like this in effect in other school districts, they need to be looked at again”

    —–Same policy that gave us Trayvon.—–

      and some school districts immediately call the cops for everything.

      it’s fail all around.

    How long until Cruz is found dead in his cell ?

  6. Nick Tepfer says:

    Ever notice that after these mass shootings the media give the death count and a couple of days later it is the same? I would expect their to be at least 1-10% increase due to those critically wounded dying in spite of medical treatment.

    • Aesop says:

      You’d be wrong.

      Generally speaking if someone is alive when they get to the ER, and they get there within the Golden Hour, 96-98% chance they’ll pull through.
      The other 2-4% are head or heart shots that are about to die, and the 1% or so who get systemic sepsis and die.

      The numbers from Iraq and A-stan the last decade and a half mirror this experience.

  7. NewVegasBadger says:

    Maybe the School system and the cops would have gotten involved RFN, had he chewed a pop tart in the shape of a gun, or made a gun shape with his hand .

    Note too common background of the school shooters; they are/were on a prescription psyche med and from a fatherless household (no father or absent father). Also all the warning signs were out there and well known. Humm, do you think that there just might be a connection?

    Sorry I don’t believe anything CNN puts out until verified.. or any other MSM outlet for that matter.

    • Kevin says:

      Lies, lies and more lies. This is the battle royal, no more masks no more hiding. This is in your face all out war by any means possible for them. THIS is their chance (they think). They have no aversion to lying, stealing, cheating, & misrepresenting their way to what they want.

  9. Sanders says:

    Hell, I can’t even afford one gun a year. Then some asshole will come up with a bill and try to make it a law that I buy one gun a month!

  10. Kevin says:

    They are coming boys and girls. This will be an attack the likes of which we have not seen before. You thought Sandy Hook was bad. That was child’s play compared to what is brewing right now. Using school children as props, excusing them from school and bussing them to DC. These next few months will be the battle for our very way of life as free born Americans. Buy it while it’s still cheap and stack it deep my friends, it’s about to get frisky.

    Eight rifles? That dog don’t hunt.

  12. John in Indy says:

    I haven’t heard anywhere that the police had _seized_ 10 weapons from his house.
    So – where are they?
