Not every kid from the Florida school beset by a mass shooting last week has become a crusader against our Second Amendment rights. Indeed, one student is attacking the media for politicizing the crime and for turning his fellow students into anti-gun activists all the while ignoring the kids who lost their lives in the attacks.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Brandon Minoff is disgusted by the way the media is treating the whole story. He is sick that the story has become about the actions of the anti-gun activists instead of about the victims who are being laid to rest.
Minoff told Daily Wire that he is distraught over the situation:
Brandon Minoff, who previously appeared on MSNBC and CNN to discuss the shooting, told The Daily Wire on Sunday that he thinks the media is using the shooting as an opportunity to push for gun control more than they are reporting the facts as neutral observers.
“I think it’s the media,” Minoff said, referring to whom he believes is promoting the gun control narrative in response to the shooting. “They exploit everything to make it political. They’re more concerned about gun control at this moment rather than the fact that there were 17 people that were killed.”
Minoff, who hopes to meet President Donald Trump to discuss the issue, said that he thinks there should be limits and restrictions on guns but is upset to see how the media is covering the tragedy.
“It pains me to see that knowing that 17 of my classmates are dead and they just want to talk about gun control,” he continued. “Students have opinions, they say stuff that they’re against guns, and that gun control is necessary, but they’re making it bigger than it needs to be at this moment.”
Minoff also said that he doesn’t really think that gun bans are effective and noted that the law says you can’t drink until you are 21, but kids still get drunk.
The 18-year-old student also says that school security guards should be armed.
“If coach Feis would have had a gun or any of the other security guards would have had a gun it definitely would have been less fatal,” the high school senior said. “[The shooter] and coach Feis were face-to-face and he just shielded kids instead of having the ability to kill the shooter.
