Letter to the editor: Mark Robinson gunning for America's kids, Brunswick Beacon

As we mark the six-year anniversary of the Parkland, Florida mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Mark Robinson’s appalling comments on the massacre have once again surfaced. They should be required reading for anyone thinking of voting for Robinson to be our next governor. 

Less than two weeks after the Parkland shooting, Robinson ranted in a Facebook post: “Let me see if I have this correct. A spoiled, angry, disobedient CHILD shot and killed 17 of his classmates, and now spoiled, angry, know-it-all all CHILDREN are trying to tell law-abiding ADULTS that we must give up our Constitutional RIGHT to own certain weapons.” 

Mark Robinson is clearly no fan of children, nor of victims. He added that: “If, two days before this shooting, a… conservative had walked into that school and put into place the ideals and principles that would have avoided that massacre, you spoiled little bastards would have kicked and screamed like babies in a crib.” If this ridiculous scheme could prevent school shootings, why haven’t MAGA “conservatives” organized a cross-country lecture tour to every American school? 

Robinson loves piling on while blood flows in the streets. A day after the horrific Buffalo supermarket mass shooting, he boasted, “I got them AR-15s at home and I like to go target shooting and all that. That’s not what they’re there for…I got them AR-15s in case the government gets too big for its britches, ‘Cause I’m gonna fill the backside of them britches with some lead.” 

A man who views gun violence as the rightful consequence for bratty children and arms himself to keep our government in line has no place holding any elected office, much less the office of governor, entrusted to protect North Carolina’s children and families. Cast your vote elsewhere.
