Parkland Dad Spars With Newsom Over Guns: ‘Sit This One Out’

  • WalkUp Foundation founder Ryan Petty, who lost his daughter in the Parkland, Florida,shooting, told California Gov. Gavin Newsom that more gun control would not have saved his daughter’s life.
  • Petty was responding to Newsom’s claims that a new bill endorsed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on concealed carry of firearms would put Floridians in danger.
  • “Hey Gavin, my daughter Alaina was killed at Parkland and I support permit-less carry in Florida,” Petty wrote. “If my daughter were alive she’d be carrying, because she would be defenseless in a gun free zone. Sit this one out.”
