Rifle-carrying councillor a ‘lunatic’ says shooting victim’s dad

The father of a teenager killed in the Parkland school shooting has called for a councillor to resign after he attended a meeting with a semi-automatic rifle strapped to his chest.

Fred Guttenberg’s 14-year-old daughter Jaime was among 17 people who were shot dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on 14 February, 2018.

Councilman Nathan Clark resign. Citizens you represent should not be forced to accept him engaging in open intimidation with his AR 15. You gun lunatic, in spite of your letter, nobody knows your intent. My daughter did not know someone carrying an AR 15 would kill her. https://t.co/iDSQV78ElB

Former student Nikolas Cruz is accused of using an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle to carry out the mass shooting.

Councillor Nathan Clark attended a meeting in Portsmouth, Virginia, earlier this week with the same weapon on display.

In a statement Mr Clark shared at the meeting he said he was a law enforcement officer who was exercising his right to bear arms.
