Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jamie was a victim of the Parkland shooting, has a message for the NRA.
He stated, “I do want to bring to your attention something and I’m not sure how many of you are aware of the video that the NRA put out two days ago, ok, because they put a target on all of your backs. The NRA — a lobby that finances campaigns, that forces legislation — put out a video basically saying your time is running out, and here is Dana Loesch in the video talking to legislators who don’t support her, members of the media who she called out by name, members of the acting community and sports figures, telling everybody if they don’t get behind the NRA, their time is running out.”
Guttenberg went on to say, “A few days before this video, she had another video called “A Call to Arms.” I ask you a question: if this was put out by a terrorist organization, we would be raising the terror threat level in this country — why are we letting this lobby have anything to do in D.C.? I don’t understand it!”
Students and teachers alike have been aggressively calling for gun reform ever since the February 14th incident. Hopefully their action will urge lawmakers to pass more measures that protect the country.
