Here's Why the Father of an Oregon Shooting Survivor Won't Attend Obama's Visit
On "The Kelly File" tonight, Stacy Boylan, father of Umpqua Community College shooting survivor Ana Boylan, said that President Obama's visit to Roseburg, Oregon, on Friday is all about pushing his gun-control agenda.
"I do believe it was Rahm Emmanuel that said, 'Never let a good tragedy go to waste,'" Boylan said, adding that he questions Obama's motives.
Boylan said that as a Second Amendment supporter, he believes gun-free zones are a problem because they become targets for "crazy people," who know they won't be met with resistance.
"My daughter said to me, 'What if somebody would have had a gun?' Gun-free and gun control takes that option off the table," Boylan stated. "I don't think that's the right course."
He said that he's spoken to his daughter and other family members and decided that they will not be attending the president's visit on Friday.
"On principle, I find that I am in disagreement with his policies on gun control, and therefore, we will not be attending the visit."
