Fred Guttenberg, a gun control activist whose daughter died during the 2018 Parkland school mass shooting, was ejected from the gallery during President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday.
Guttenberg tweeted his thanks to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for inviting him to the Capitol as his guest before the address began. He was removed by security after yelling “What about my daughter!” as Trump spoke about protecting the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
For the past few years, gun violence has been rampant in America and that too on the hands of white men and not terrorists. However, legislators have made no move to curb the gun violence and introduce any kind of laws pertaining to gun control.
