Why A Parkland Family Was Forced To Demand An Apology From Democrats Will….

Two parents, who lost children in the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, criticized a Democrat-funded mailer that pictured children, a teacher, and a Republican candidate on shooting targets.

Republican candidate Corey Simon faces Democrat incumbent Loranne Ausley in the Senate District 3 race. City & State reported images of a mailer, which on one side portrays Simon on a shooting target. The other side of the mailer included pictures of school children and a teacher in front of shooting targets with bullet holes.

The mailer was paid for by the Florida Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, which City & State reports is led by Sen. Lauren Book.

Andrew Pollack, who lost his daughter Meadow in the 2018 school shooting, called out Democrats Sen. Lauren Book, Sen. Loranne Ausley, Sen. Janet Cruz, and candidate Janelle Perez on Twitter.

“This is not okay. This is never okay. You wrap your arms around Parkland for photo ops then treat children like political pawns,” Pollack said on Twitter.

Ryan Petty’s daughter named Alaina died in the same school shooting. Since then, Petty has advocated for school safety policy. He was also appointed to the Florida State Board of Education in January 2020 and serves on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission.

“Disgusting. Shame on you [Florida Democrats]. Shame on those that funded this,” Petty said. “This ad says more about you than it does about your political opponents.”

The ad labeled Simon an “extremist” and claimed that his policies in support of the 2nd Amendment would lead to more gun violence and more school shootings.

“I’m asking for [Ausley] to apologize to the Parkland families,” Petty told The Daily Wire on Sunday.

He shared a tweet calling for her apology on Friday, sharing photos of the offending mailer.
