Andrew Pollack, who lost his daughter, Meadow during the Valentines Day 2018 high school mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, called out California Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi this week after she openly fought against President Donald Trump’s push to protect our nation’s schools.
Breitbart News reports:
Trump’s School Safety Commission, headed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, submitted a report that presented numerous steps that could be taken to heighten school safety. One of those was doing away with an Obama administration rule that let kids prone to crime and/or dangerous behavior slip through the cracks.
Another step was to add more armed personnel on campus, particularly veterans and/or police. And Trump himself continued to push for armed teachers, as he has done since day one following the attack.
IJR reports that the House Minority Leader answered by calling the report an attempt “to roll back students’ civil rights and fill our classrooms with deadly firearms.”
She went on, “Not only are Republicans ignoring proven research and dismantling vital student anti-discrimination protections, they have blocked commonsense gun violence prevention measures and underfunded effective school climate practices, anti-bullying initiatives, after-school programs and school counselor supports.”
Pollack answered over Twitter saying, “When 17 people get murdered in school, politicians have 2 choices: find out why and #fixit or weaponize it for their own agendas and wait to do it all over again next time. @realdonaldtrump took the high route. You dishonor Parkland’s legacy and endanger other kids for retweets.”
