Gun-rights advocates feeling heat after school shooting
Fredrick KunkleThe call came Friday night, as Americans were just beginning the struggle to make sense of one of the most horrific mass shootings in a long history of them.
The anonymous caller was angry, and he was looking for Philip Van Cleave, who heads the Virginia Citizens Defense League. He cursed Van Cleave for his pro-gun advocacy, challenged Van Cleave to sell his weapons, and called him a coward.
“You would have thought I had gone up there and done these horrible things,” said Van Cleave, who received the call in the midst of planning demonstrations at two Autozone stores to protest the firing of an employee who used his firearm to break up a robbery.
