Fred Guttenberg, the father of Parkland shooting victim Jamie Guttenberg, was one of a handful of Parkland residents who met with Senate Democrats to talk about gun control.
During Guttenberg’s testimony, he mentioned Dana Loesch’s latest ad, “Your Time is Up,” to compare the NRA to a terrorist organization.
Father of Parkland victim slams NRA videos:
"If this was put out by a terrorist organization, we would be raising the terror threat level in this country. Why are we letting this lobby have anything to do with DC? I don't understand it!" pic.twitter.com/7tfYM8fAkU

People were quick to give him kudos for what he said.
NRA is a terrorist organization. Those who support it are enemies of a free state.

That’s ironic considering the Second Amendment is what helps keep us free. You can’t have the First Amendment without the Second.
No real American understands why the Russia-supported @NRA has a say in our elections. They are more like a terrorist group than lobbyists and, from their heartless rhetoric and violent acts, belong in the slammer.

LOLOLOL. Russian-supported? You keep drinkin’ that Kool-Aid.
You know what would be great? If a bunch of lawyers – whose children died tragically in these goddamn unnecessary shootings across the country – form a law association solely devoted the fighting the NRA.

Gun control advocates seem to forget that the NRA isn’t just one person or a small handful of people. The NRA is made up of 5 MILLION members…and we all vote.
Gun control advocates were quick to remind Mr. Guttenberg where his anger should be aimed.
Oh tell him to get to work. He should aim his anger at the FBI and police who did absolutely nothing while being warned about that psycho. The NRA had nothing to do with it.

Exactly. The FBI. The Sheriff’s Department. Local law enforcement. THEY failed you.
So he's upset that group is working to uphold the 2nd amendment? Ok
