Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is an expert in harming his state’s youth; just within the past few months he’s signed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill into law, attacked transgender student athletes and scolded kids for wearing masks.
Thankfully, Florida’s youth are fighting back.Last night, queer teen activist Jack Petocz got to experience the Governor’s flagrant lack of care firsthand as DeSantis’ security guards kicked him out of an event for demanding an answer on DeSantis’ lack of action against gun violence in the wake of the shooting in Uvalde, Texas.Growing up, I watched in terror as mass shooting after mass shooting occurred.
Today, I asked Ron DeSantis directly, why he doesn’t care about my life and refuses to act on gun violence. Instead of answering me, he sent his security guards to kick me out.
