Houston, we have a serious problem. I was reading several articles that have come out on the SandyHook shooting massacre that happened in Connecticut last month. Most recently, and article appeared talking about how one of the shooting victim’s Fathers went to give testimony on gun control and gun violence. During his testimony, he was HECKLED by gun-rights advocates.
Like, I am seriously AGOG that someone would do this. A man’s child was murdered not even a month ago and he, understandably, would like some changes to be made so that someone else doesn’t lose their child in the same manner. I would hope that any thinking person would understand that it is REASONABLE for a person who has lost their child to not want it to happen again.
The man’s name is Neil Heslin, and his child’s name was Jesse Heslin. So, there he is giving testimony over a photo of his child and a group of gun-rights advocates started yelling and heckling.
Folks, if we are a nation of people who yells insults and jeers at a man who has child has been murdered, we really ARE totally fucking screwed and our humanity is gone.
