FL School Shooting Survivor: Media Pushing Gun Control, But Not Listening to Conservative Side
A student who survived last week's massacre at a Florida high school said Wednesday he does not believe the tragedy is being covered fairly by the mainstream media.
Brandon Minoff applauded his fellow students for speaking out, but said those who might not agree are not being allowed the same platform.
"I definitely think it is a youth movement, but I feel like not all the youth is being listened to. I feel like the conservative side of it is being ignored, it's just pushing gun control," he told Laura Ingraham.
Minoff said the media has immediately focused on outlawing guns, instead of discussing how schools can be made safer.
"It's been a week. We are still mourning the loss of our loved ones and they are just still talking about what guns to outlaw, the kind of laws to create. Seventeen people just died at the hands of a human. Humans control guns," he said.
The 18-year-old told Fox News on Wednesday, "I wholeheartedly believe that the media is politicizing this tragedy." He explained on "The Ingraham Angle" that many of his fellow students are "uninformed" on the issue of guns and may be following the popular opinion.
"There are two sides to every story, but they only want to hear one."
One of his fellow students, David Hogg, told Harris Faulkner that state lawmakers who do not act on gun control will be voted out of office by him and his peers.
Hogg said he feels the American people want more gun control and are not being represented due to the "oligarchy" and corruption in Washington, D.C.
