Father of Florida Shooting Victim Blasts Media’s Gun Control Push

Many of the same liberals claiming that Republicans and the NRA are “killing kids” for supporting our constitutional right to bear arms were the same ones taunting Andrew Pollack, the father of a girl who was killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. Why? Because of a photo that was taken of him when he was still searching desperately for his daughter:


While CNN and other mainstream media outlets have been parading around a select group of survivors who happened to already be far-left activists calling for gun control, Pollack and the other parents of the actual victims haven’t received nearly as much media attention. And why? Because while they’re calling for change, they’re not being explicitly partisan.

It’s gotten to the point where this group of young gun-control activists are calling for companies to be boycotted simply because they have executives who donate to Republicans. They initially just called for boycotting companies that provide discounts to NRA members.

Fox News is the only network that bothered to have Pollack on – and when he voiced his views, it’s clear that his lack of desire to politicize his own child’s deaths is why it wasn’t CNN interviewing him.

According to The Blaze,

Pollack tore into the media on Sunday for pushing a gun control narrative in the days following the tragic shooting.

He made his comments on “Fox News Sunday,” and even criticized host Chris Wallace for focusing on gun control during a preceding interview with Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R).

“You’re talking about gun control. I just had to listen to you and Gov. Scott talk about gun control. Gun control is a big issue, no one in America is going to come together on gun control,” Pollack said.

“You didn’t say one thing about fixing it. The American people, we could get together on school safety,” he added. “But when you polarize it and every other media…we don’t care about gun control right now…you’re not gonna get everyone together on it. But, we are gonna get everyone together on fixing our schools.”

“Today, it’s not about guns. It’s about the safety in our schools, and that’s what you ask Gov. Scott about. My kid’s not here, because the schools weren’t safe. That’s the main thing,” Pollack explained.

Pollack suggested that security at schools should be similar to security at airports and courthouses, two places that almost never see any type of violence.
