Andrew Pollack, whose daughter was killed in the recent Parkland shooting, appeared on Fox News Sunday and finally added some common sense to the media’s anti-gun hysteria. Pollack blasted the media for making the incident about gun control rather than “school safety.”
Pollack is finally discussing school safety rather than limiting the rights of those who haven’t committed any crime. In the wake of the shooting, the media has remained hyper-focused on gun control, with CNN even hosting a scripted and propagandized “town hall” event featuring students from Parkland.
The interview began when Chris Wallace asked if what president Donald Trump had proposed will stop mass school shootings. “I want to say right at the start how sorry all of us are for your loss, and what you’ve had to go through. Andrew, when you were at the White House at that very raw, emotional moment, you said, “Look, after 9/11, we fixed the situation; we made it a lot harder for people to get onto planes with guns.” When you hear what Governor Scott just said; when you hear what President Trump is saying; will that fix the problem?”
Of course, Wallace wanted Pollack to agree that taking guns away from those who committed no crime would be an effective solution. But Pollack did not tow the line for the mainstream media.
It’s not gonna be fixed because I just heard what you said, what you’re focusing on. Polarizing this event – the murder of these kids. You’re talking about gun control. I just had to listen to you and Governor Scott talk about gun control.
Gun control is a big issue. No one in America is gonna come together on gun control, Chris. We’re here – you didn’t say one thing about fixing it. The American people, we could get together on school safety, but when you polarize it, this event – and every other media – we don’t care about gun control right now. That’s a big issue in the country and you’re not going to get everyone together on it. But we’re gonna get everyone together on fixing our schools.
And I just listened to you…you didn’t mention one question to Governor Scott about what are we gonna do about the security for our children – how are we gonna do that?
But you’re just talking about gun control, which is gonna just give you more ratings…
Our kids are going to school in Kentucky on Monday – how are those kids safe? How about bringing that up to the media? How about bringing that up to Governor Scott? Not about guns. It’s not about guns now. Today, it’s not about guns, it’s about the safety in our schools. …
My kid’s not here because the schools weren’t safe – that’s the main thing. You go into a courthouse, the judge is safe; the stenographer’s not worried someone’s coming in with a gun because they can’t get in with a gun. The American people, we just want our schools safe. We don’t wanna talk about guns right now.
Pollack’s comments are oddly reminiscent of those of NRA spokesman, Colion Noir, who said school safety should be more important than “adding more words to our ‘no bite’ sign.” Noir also suggested armed guards and metal detectors in schools. Afterall, we protect our money and politicians with such safety measures, why not our children?
“You can’t legislate evil! That’s like holding up a “no biting” sign in front of a rabid dog and expecting it not to bite you. So instead of wasting time adding more words to our ‘no bite’ sign, how about we focus on how to stop the evil when it arises. Gun free zone signs don’t keep guns out of school, especially in the hands of mass murders who aren’t phased by signs telling them they’re not supposed to bring guns in schools.” -Colion Noir
But the media obviously has an agenda to push, and they doing it. They need their brainwashing campaign to work, and for all of the those fighting for gun control to be so terrified of their rights that they will cling to the feet of their generated god, the government, and beg for safety. That’s the worst part of all of this; watching fellow Americans demand their rights and the rights of others be taken away because some lunatic committed an atrocity. We’ve all heard the saying by now: “it’s easier to fool someone than convince them that they have been fooled.”
