“Videos like the one shown at a political event for President Trump are not only offensive, but dangerous to the safety of my husband's fellow news media colleagues,” Andrea Chamblee, a @MomsDemand volunteer whose husband was fatally shot at the Capital Gazette #TrumpVideo
“My husband was targeted as a journalist and killed doing what he loved. Dangerous rhetoric can lead to consequences; it’s disgusting this video would be used for political gain. Leaders must take this crisis seriously and act, not make light of gun violence,” @AndreaChamblee
“The video depicting the President harming innocent people promotes violence. No one should experience the pain of having a family member taken by gun violence,” said @RisherRev, whose mother and two cousins were shot and killed in the 2015 Emanuel AME shooting in Charleston.
“Showing this video at a sanctioned political event wasn’t just inappropriate -- it was hurtful. Lawmakers should condemn this video immediately and disavow the supporters who created it,” @RisherRev, a member of the @Everytown Survivor Network #TrumpVideo
Every day in the U.S. on average, 100 Americans are killed with guns, and hundreds more are shot and wounded. Over the weekend, reports of gun violence included deadly shootings in Brooklyn, New York; Pelham New Hampshire; and Chicago: every.tw/31f6yP5 #TrumpVideo
