The National Rifle Association (NRA) slammed Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel on Twitter Friday.
No Sheriff Israel you were the one that didn’t PROTECT these children and that is your job. You run the largest fully accredited sheriff’s office in the United States, yet your office failed this community. https://t.co/lauyeNedob

This tweet comes after news broke Friday that four deputies who responded to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Fla. did not enter the school or try to stop the shooting.(RELATED: Report: Four Deputies Waited Outside School During Shooting)
Seventeen people ended up dying from the horrific shooting while the deputies waited outside.
The NRA has faced tremendous opposition from many in the establishment media since the shooting, with many calling for gun control.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough implied that the NRA inspires domestic terrorist attacks last week. (RELATED: Morning Joe Implies The NRA Inspires Domestic Terrorist Attacks)
