Parkland Dad Shreds New NRA President Oliver North After His Disgusting Comments

Last week, Oliver North attacked the kids who survived a mass slaughter at their high school in Parkland, Florida. Now the father of one of the kids killed has a few things to say to the new NRA president.

Oliver North is the new president of the NRA. And, last week, he said some hateful things about the kids who survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. North said that the kids who’ve turned activists fighting gun violence are “criminals” and “terrorists.”

Fred Guttenberg lost his 14-year-old daughter Jaime in that mass shooting. After North’s disgusting remarks, Guttenberg told Newsweek that the kids and their families who are now fighting for gun safety are not terrorists. “We’re people with a broken heart,” he said.

“The NRA and people like Oliver North, to them, it’s a job,” Guttenberg said. “They could retire and go on with their life. I can’t, because my daughter isn’t here.”

North says that the NRA has become the victim of “civil terrorism.”

“They call them activists. That’s what they’re calling themselves. They’re not activists — this is civil terrorism. This is the kind of thing that’s never been seen against a civil rights organization in America,” North told the Washington Times.“You go back to the terrible days of Jim Crow and those kinds of things — even there you didn’t have this kind of thing. We didn’t have the cyberwar kind of thing that we’ve got today.”

“What they did very successfully with a frontal assault, and now intimidation and harassment and lawbreaking, is they confused the American people,” he said of the activists.

Parkland students Lauren Hogg and Cameron Kasky responded right away.

Then, Fred Guttenberg weighed in with several posts of his own. The Parkland dad said, “My daughter was murdered by an AR 15 … so I do not care what you think of me.”
