Shooting survivors shame Fox News contributor for her tasteless tweet
Students in Florida who saw their school shot up on Wednesday are busy knocking down bogus Fox News spin.
Her callous tweet was then quickly and thoroughly destroyed by at least two students from Parkland, Florida, who say they suffered through the massacre.
Lahren got dunked on after she tweeted a heartless jibe, while the Florida community was still reeling from the killing spree.
Can the Left let the families grieve for even 24 hours before they push their anti-gun and anti-gunowner agenda? My goodness. This isn't about a gun it's about another lunatic. #FloridaShooting

The Fox talker was simply pushing years-old, vapid NRA spin about how it’s supposedly not OK to talk about gun violence in the wake of horrific gun violence.
But this time, two students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School responded with full force:
I was hiding in a closet for 2 hours. It was about guns. You weren't there, you don't know how it felt. Guns give these disgusting people the ability to kill other human beings. This IS about guns and this is about all the people who had their life abruptly ended because of guns. https://t.co/XnzhvuN1zd

In the wake of the tragic mass killing, which claimed 17 lives, local Florida students in particular have been stepping up and speaking truth to right-wing power.
Using a variety of media platforms, they’ve been calling out the NRA, calling out Trump and calling out dishonest commentators like the ones at Fox News.
They refuse to be passive observers and let others dictate the storyline.
“What we really need is action. Because we can say, ‘Yes, we’re going to do all these things — thoughts and prayers.’ What we need more than that is action,” student David Hogg told CNN on Wednesday. “We need to step out of it and take a look back and realize there is something seriously wrong here. And some of our policymakers need to look in the mirror and take some action.”
Parkland students aren’t letting this tragic story be overtaken by Fox News spin.
