GRANT STINCHFIELD (HOST): Barack Obama, if you want to talk about inequality and gun violence, you are the biggest perpetrator of it. Because while you left educators defenseless, while you pushed policies that barred violent students from being arrested, while you railed against the NRA, your daughters, yourself were all protected by armed guards. Your daughters in a school with strict discipline policies in place at all times because you knew that’s what makes schools safer. Discipline, order and as a last case scenario, good guys with guns. But that was only good enough for your family. The Parkland students you now write about in Time magazine, that protection wasn’t good enough for them. You played politics with their lives and now you have duped them into thanking you for it when you are the one who should be apologizing. Barack Obama, you were in it and you coddled these thugs. Your policies coddled these thugs. Had every child been given the same armed security yours were protected by, there never would have been a Parkland massacre for you to weaponize in your Time magazine hit piece attacking the NRA. So let me make this clear, Mr. Obama. NRA members don’t need your apology, in fact, we don’t want it. But Parkland students, apologize to them. They deserve it and you owe it to them.
