Parkland father Andrew Pollack: Daughter’s murder made me ‘pro-Second Amendment’

Not what “they” expected this man to say, but this is the reality of the value of the Second Amendment. READ MORE

Andrew Pollack, the outspoken father of one of the students killed during the Parkland, Florida, mass shooting, said last Wednesday that he was never a big gun-rights supporter until he realized how defenseless his daughter was when she was gunned down at school last year.

“I was never such a pro-Second Amendment type of guy until this happened to my daughter and I saw how she became such a victim on that third floor and no one came in to help her,” Mr. Pollack, whose 18-year-old daughter Meadow was among the 17 students and staff killed by a gunman on Valentine’s Day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, told Fox News host Martha MacCallum.

Mr. Pollack cited the recent mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, where 22 people were killed and others attempted to hide or flee, as an example of people needing to be able to carry guns so they can fight back.

“Every time that there’s a mass shooting and there’s a victim cowering, like at Walmart recently where those people were killed in Texas and there were victims cowering — it shows you how important the Second Amendment is,” he said. “When seconds count, you need to be able to protect yourself. First responders are usually minutes away.

“That is why I am such a believer in the Second Amendment and I’ll never let one of my friends or loved ones be a victim, like what happened to my daughter on that third floor.”

When SECONDS matter, police are MINUTES away.

This is why people must start protecting themselves with a gun until police arrive.

I will NEVER again let what happened to my daughter happen to one of my friends or loved ones. #FixIt

  1. A very wise move too bad more folks don’t think like him. You need to be prepared to stand your ground rather than cower down at least if you get shot you can go down fighting

  2. It is amazing that the continuing narrative is, “Somebody attacked some people in our country, so the solution is to make sure that no one can defend.” Even more amazing is that so many people seem to lack the gray cells, or refuse to use them, to see through this phony and absurd narrative, and instead they just emotionally wish all bad things away while opening themselves to all of them. There will always be attackers. They just don’t succeed so well if they happen to be mixed in with defenders, instead of what are sure to be just hapless victims.

  3. My deepest sympathy to you Mr. Pollack and your family. She was a beautiful young woman with a whole life to look forward to. Yes, the government failed you. Good luck on your lawsuit against Mr. Peterson.
