For gun-control groups, there are two types of people who they love to put front and center above any others. Those are survivors and victims’ families. Anti-gunners like to hold up such people are if they’re saints, individuals too pure to have their motives questioned and thus immune from criticism.
And, to be fair, criticizing a survivor or their family opens one up to all kinds of attacks. After all, some act like they can’t be wrong simply because of their own personal experiences.
Yet, I honestly don’t care. I take issue with anyone who pushes gun control, but especially survivors and victims’ family members who push policies that would have had no impact on preventing those particular shootings.
