Christian Nicholas Velasquez PRAISED Parkland, Vegas killers
ORLANDO, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – A Florida college student who praised mass shooters online will be allowed to buy guns should he choose to, a judge ruled Monday.
Christian Nicholas Velasquez, 21, was temporarily banned from owning any weapons or ammunition under the state’s new gun law passed after the Parkland shooting, according to the Sun-Sentinel. Circuit Judge Bob LeBlanc declined Orlando police’s attempt to extend the ban to a full year.
“I don’t disagree with the issuing of the initial temporary injunction. I think that’s exactly what the statute provides for,” LeBlanc ruled.
Velasquez, a University of Central Florida student, was being investigated by campus police after authorities received a tip from the community about a Reddit user, “TheRealUCFChris,” calling the alleged Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz and the Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock heroes, the newspaper reported.
