Parkland Mayor Christine Hunschofsky, who has gotten lots of criticism in town over her handling of the recent turmoil, shockingly bucked the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school students’ quest to reduce gun violence in our schools.
Mayor Hunschofsky told the Lancashire Independent News that she thinks “the NRA want’s to do what’s right” and that Trump has “done a great job!”
This echoes the comments of student Kyle Kashuv, a frequent guest on Fox News and proponent of a pro-gun rights position that is often at odds with some of classmates calling for tighter gun control.
The comments came while the Mayor met with President Trump late last month, and appears to contradict the push by some commissioners, community members, and students like David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez’s campaign to ask politicians to pledge not to take money from the NRA.
I guess we know where Mayor Hunschofsky really stands on that pledge!
