Oregon Shooting Victim’s Family Refusing to Meet With Obama: We Won’t Be Props

Oregon Shooting Victim’s Family Refusing to Meet With Obama: We Won’t Be Props

The father of one victim from the shooting in Oregon last week said he and his family will not meet with President Obama.

The president has plans to visit the area later this week.

The father is Stacy Boylan. His daughter, Ana Boylan, was a student at Umpqua Community College, where the shooting occurred.

Mr. Boylan appeared on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” last night and wonders about the real reason for Obama’s trip. He said, “I do believe it was Rahm Emmanuel [who] said, ‘Never let a good tragedy go to waste.'”

Biz Pac Review reports:

[Boylan] openly questions Obama’s motives for coming to Roseburg — with good reason, considering the president said “we should politicize” shootings such as that which occurred last week.

Ana continues to recover after being shot in the back by the gunman.

Boylan, a staunch Second Amendment supporter, went on to say that Obama’s visit “is completely to support his gun control agenda.” He was also highly critical of gun-free zones, saying gunmen target these areas knowing they’re not going to be met with resistance.

“Gun-free zones are a problem, they’re an issue,” he said. “They’re a target for crazy people.”

When asked specifically if he will see Obama on Friday if the president wants to meet with families of the victims, Boylan said he has spoken to his daughter and other family members and they’ve decided that they will not be used as props to support a gun control agenda.

“On principle, I find that I am in disagreement with his policies on gun control, and therefore, we will not be attending the visit,” he replied.
