But thanks for proving my point: he was there to score emotional points and shame the pro-gun side into capitulating to his argument. That's an exceedingly cheap and dishonest tactic, and shame on whatever jerk it was that put this poor guy up to it.


He's there to put a human face on the cost of the 2nd amendment. His child became the collateral damage of the right to bear arms.

In fact, it's necessary.
