Nikki Goeser, wife of a murdered husband, responded to former President Barack Obama’s op-ed to Parkland students in Florida that lauded them for their commitment to increasing gun control laws.
The former President wrote in a Time article that the Parkland students bore “witness to carnage” and are now affecting change by “shaking us out of our complacency.”
‘They see the NRA and its allies — whether mealymouthed politicians or mendacious commentators peddling conspiracy theories — as mere shills for those who make money selling weapons of war to whoever can pay.’ wrote Barack Obama.
In response to the ex President’s article, Nikki Goeser explained that she, too, has “witnessed carnage” but in the aftermath of murder, she placed her blame differently than the Parkland students in Florida.
‘I didn’t blame guns. I blame the murderer and those lawmakers who thought a ‘gun-free zone’ would keep us safe,‘ Nikki tweeted. ‘All it did was prevent me from defending us.’
I’ve witnessed carnage myself Mr. Obama. However, after witnessing my stalker gun down my husband, I didn’t blame guns. I blame the murderer & those lawmakers who thought a “gun-free zone” would keep us safe. All it did was prevent me from defending us. I am No Shill. #2A https://t.co/fDOgGw6aM4

Nikki Goeser added that ‘she is no shill’, as a rebuke of ex President Obama’s claim that the NRA and those who stood with it are simply accomplices to the profiting of selling weapons of war to the American people.
Back in 2009, Goeser’s stalker, Hank Wise, shot and killed her husband, Ben. Nikki Goeser couldn’t defend her family despite being a concealed carry holder, because of the designated “gun-free zone” they were in, her firearm was locked inside her vehicle.
‘I followed that law, but my stalker did not,‘ she spoke for America’s 1st Freedom. ‘Despite this horrific experience, I never blamed the object that was used by an evil man to kill my husband.’
Nikki added that the horrific experience taught her a lesson that ‘bad people do not follow these gun-control laws’ and that they know that in gun-free zones, they’ll be faced with ‘little to no resistance.’
Goeser also reminded us that since 1950, all mass public shootings in the United States of America have taken place in gun-free zones except for three exceptions.
Her husband’s killer, Hank Wise, was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 23 years in prison.
