The father of one of the victims of last week’s shooting in Oregon said he was blocked from meeting with President Obama on Friday.
James Cooper, father of 18-year-old Quinn Cooper, who died after being shot by the gunman, told Fox12 that the Secret Service and FBI kept him from entering Roseburg High School, where Obama comforted the families when in town.
“I cannot believe the president of … the whole United States has denied a grieving father the right to see what’s going on and the right to see,” the father said.
He then spoke to what he saw as Obama’s real agenda.
“All I hear is gun control, gun control… hell with gun control, that’s not the issue,” Cooper added. “The issue is we are grieving, we are hurting and he won’t see me, that’s wrong.”
Divorced from Quinn’s mother, Cooper told Fox12 that he was included in other briefings and events involving the victims’ families that were held by local law enforcement.
The Fox affiliate contacted the Secret Service to find out why Cooper was excluded, but reported they did not get a response.
