Minneapolis radio host Bob Davis stirred a small controversy after he said this on April 12:
I have something I want to say to the victims of Newtown or any other shooting, I don’t care if it’s here in Minneapolis or anyplace else: Just because a bad thing happened to you doesn’t mean that you get to put a king in charge of my life. I’m sorry that you suffered a tragedy, but you know what? Deal with it, and don’t force me to lose my liberty, which is a greater tragedy than your loss.
I’m sick and tired of seeing these victims trotted out, given rides on Air Force One, hauled into the Senate well, and everyone is … terrified of these victims. I would stand in front of them and tell them, ‘Go to hell.’
Davis, who has been offered an expense-paid trip to Newtown by a local resident to explain himself, did not immediately return a call to the KCTN-AM studio this morning.
Davis appears on the morning Davis and Emmer In the Morning Show on KCTN-AM.
