Andrew Pollack, the outspoken father of one of the students killed in the Parkland mass school shooting, slammed the fellow Parkland father who approached Judge Brett Kavanaugh during a break in Tuesday’s heated Supreme Court confirmation hearing.
“Stop weaponizing Parkland to advance a dangerous political agenda!” Mr. Pollack tweeted Tuesday afternoon.
Mr. Pollack, whose 18-year-old daughter, Meadow, was killed in the Feb. 14 shooting, has repeatedly called for stricter school safety and pushed back against claims that mass shootings are a gun issue.
Mr. Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter, Jaime, was also killed in the shooting, tweeted that the judge pulled away because “he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence.”
Mr. Guttenberg, a gun-control activist, told the Sun-Sentinel that he attended the hearing at the invitation of Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California.
