Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was murdered in the Parkland shooting, was ejected from the State of the Union speech for yelling at the President.
“Later on in the [State of the Union] speech, when he got to the part about the Second Amendment and [Trump] said, ‘I will defend your Second Amendment rights, which are under attack and under siege all over this country,’ he’s saying to his followers that people like me want to attack the Second Amendment,” he continued. “And that’s just an absolute, brutal, disgusting, vicious lie. Under no circumstance, in no place in this country, is the Second Amendment under attack, and no legal, lawful gun owner feels the sting of gun safety measures that are being proposed.”
Gun owners in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington — just to name a few — might beg to differ with Guttenberg’s assessment. But what he lacks in objectivity and intellectual honesty, he makes up for with conviction and stridency.
