(NewsReady.com) – On February 14, 2018, the sound of gunshots shattered the air and lives in Parkland, FL. When the chaos ended, 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High lay dead. The shooting led to a wave of activism from both gun-rights advocates and opponents. Andrew Pollack was one of the parents who lost a child that day, and he’s been fighting for his daughter, Meadow, ever since.
On August 23, Pollack discussed why he decided to speak at the 2020 Republican National Convention (RNC).
During an interview with “Fox & Friends Weekend”, Pollack said he was “honored” to receive an invitation to speak at the RNC. He said he believes students and teachers will be a lot safer under President Donald Trump than they would Joe Biden.
The grieving father explained the Left’s attack on the Second Amendment is personal for him. His daughter was “shot nine times” and even though hundreds called 911, nobody saved her that day. Pollack also told Newsmax his story.

President Trump has made protecting Second Amendment rights a top priority for his administration. That’s something America can expect to continue if he’s reelected. On November 3, voters will have a chance to decide where they stand: with parents like Andrew Pollack or with Joe Biden.
