Florida high school shooting survivor skewers Tomi Lahren's tweet on gun control
A Florida high school student who survived Wednesday's mass shooting spoke out about the horrifying experience in response to FOX News' Tomi Lahren's comments on gun control.
Lahren, an outspoken conservative commentator, took to Twitter after the attack to voice her thoughts on the shooting, which claimed the lives of at least 17 people.
"Can the Left let the families grieve for even 24 hours before they push their anti-gun and anti-gunowner agenda?" she wrote. "My goodness. This isn't about a gun it's about another lunatic."
In response to Lahren's comments, Carly Novell, a 17-year-old senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who says she hid in a closet during the attack, shared her harrowing story on Twitter.
"I was hiding in a closet for 2 hours. It was about guns," she wrote. "You weren't there, you don't know how it felt."
"Guns give these disgusting people the ability to kill other human beings," she continued. "This IS about guns and this is about all the people who had their life abruptly ended because of guns."
Novell's personal testimony quickly went viral, racking up over 34,000 retweets and 80,000 likes.
Lahren has yet to post any more tweets about the attack.
