The AR-15 — the assault rifle used in last week’s Florida school shooting massacre — remained a weapon of choice at a Saturday gun show held in Hollywood, Fla. on Saturday — less than an hour’s drive from the slaughter.
“What would not selling [the gun] have done?” dealer Will McDough asked of the AR-15 used to murder 17 people in Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL.
“If he had a knife would you regulate the knife — or the person standing behind it?” asked McDough, one of more than a dozen dealers selling the model.
Nikolas Cruz, 19, had legally purchased his AR-15 from a licensed dealer upon turning 18, officials have said.
“I don’t believe that any law that they would have added would have deterred what happened,” said shopper Joe Arrington, 29. “I think a lot of agencies didn’t do their job.”
