A televised discussion with the survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting would serve a larger purpose than the mainstream media’s promotion of a selected group of outspoken students, said an Arizona candidate for Congress who successfully challenged the Brady Bill.
Richard Mack, former Graham County sheriff, said “It is time we have an adult conversation with these young men and women about the reality of the world and the role guns play in our society. Now is the time for the nation to come together to listen to one another and discuss real measures that will keep our children safe in school.”
Mack, founder and president of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), and current high school teacher at the Heritage Academy in Mesa, Arizona, is calling for a one hour, uninterrupted, live televised roundtable discussion with the survivors of the Parkland massacre.
“We all mourn for the tragic loss of life and have a shared responsibility, as parents, citizens and leaders in the community to respectfully and thoughtfully address our children’s safety at schools,” Mack said.
