Fred Guttenberg, a gun control activist and father of Parkland shooting victim Jaime Guttenberg, was “ejected” from the State of the Union speech after screaming at President Trump.

CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell tweeted about the incident.

The Miami Herald reports that Guttenberg’s outburst came after Trump pledged to defend the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. He was then “escorted out of the balcony gallery of the U.S. House of Representatives chamber.”

Guttenberg has filmed a gun control video for Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden. He was at the State of the Union as a guest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D).
