February 14th marks the second anniversary of the Parkland shooting. The White House is hosting parents of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student but left one off the list; Fred Guttenberg.
Guttenberg has been an outspoken advocate for gun safety laws and critic of President Trump. Guttenberg was escorted out of the State of the Union Address and handcuffed and detained for yelling out when the president pledged to defend the Second Amendment.
(2,2) That said, I should not have yelled out. I am thankful for the overwhelming support that I am receiving. However, I do owe my family and friends an apology. I have tried to conduct myself with dignity throughout this process and I will do better as I pursue gun safety.— Fred Guttenberg (@fred_guttenberg) February 5, 2020
For those wondering, White House schedule today says:— Fred Guttenberg (@fred_guttenberg) February 10, 2020
3:30PM THE PRESIDENT greets Parkland Families
I guess it is not all of the families as I only learned of this today through a reporter. My family and I were NOT invited.
