The parents of the victims of the Parkland shooting have a burden on their backs that no sane person should ever want to have to bear.
That being said, it didn’t have to be this way. If there were more people who would be willing to allow teachers to carry firearms in the classrooms the person that killed those poor people would have been stopped.
It is the reason why I am so glad that some of them recognize that the lack of people with lawfully acquired firearms may have been something that would have kept their children with them on that fateful day.
In an interview with conservative news outlet Newsmax TV, the father of a victim of the Parkland school shooting discussed Joe Biden‘s gun control agenda.
Andrew Pollack is the author of “Why Meadow Died: The People and Policies That Created the Parkland Shooter and Endanger America’s Students”. Meadow was his daughter, who was killed during a school shooting on February 14, 2018 at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
The show’s host, Grant Stinchfield, began the interview by asking Pollack, “How do you sum up the state of school security three years later, and all the work that you’ve done to keep kids safe?”
“I was so disgusted that Biden, on the anniversary of my daughter getting murdered, announced — you know, his administration announced — that they were going to do all these, put all these gun control measures in place,” Pollack began.
“Every one of those [gun control measures] that he wants to put in place wouldn’t have made a difference in my daughter getting murdered in Parkland. They’re not capable of looking at solutions. What I did, I took a step back when the media — mainstream media — was attacking our Second Amendment. I took a step back, and I looked into the failures in Parkland, and I dissected them one by one. I wanted to make a difference, I wanted to help law enforcement with their response to a mass shooting, and that’s what I did. I came up with an organization called ‘School Safety Grant.’ Any law enforcement agency, I urge them to go on schoolsafetygrant.org. Go on my website, we dissect all the failures,” Pollack continued.
“When you put just gun control measures in, you mask solutions… They’re very simple-minded, you know, they’re not able to look at the failures… All those students and the media, they jumped on the gun control bandwagon,” he added.
