Losing a child to gun violence can be very traumatic! Every school shooting has always left people in a life-time grieve.
MSNBC reached out to Fred Guttenberg whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was killed in the Parkland shootings and who has been particularly active in the calls for gun regulation reform ever since.
“We have a president who stands up and embraces a gun lobby, the NRA, and says you should actually feel good about them,” Guttenberg said about President Trump, who addressed the NRA’s annual national meeting in Texas earlier this month. “We have Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan who sit on their you-know-what and have no spine and won’t even talk about this, and it keeps happening.”
“Here’s what I predict: This November, this will be the No. 1 voting issue, and if you’re wrong on this issue, we’re going to fire you, because enough is enough is enough.”
The still-grieving parent blamed politicians for creating “a generation of students who don’t want to go to school” because of their fear of becoming the next shooting victim.
“These shootings can happen anywhere and everywhere, because we have irresponsible gun ownership, we have irresponsible gun laws,” said Guttenberg.
