The father of one of the victims of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting said the focus of the country should be on school safety rather than gun control in an appearance on "Fox News Sunday."
Andrew Pollack's daughter Meadow was an 18-year-old senior when she and 16 others were killed in a massacre on Feb. 14 that sparked another national debate over the nation's gun laws.

Pollack took issue with the tenor of host Chris Wallace's interview with Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R.) earlier in the program, saying Wallace focused too heavily on guns in his questioning.
"You're talking about gun control … Gun control is a big issue. No one in America is going to come together on gun control, Chris," Pollack said. "You didn't say one thing about fixing it. The American people, we could get together on school safety."
"We don't care about gun control right now," he added. "That's a big issue in our country, and you're not going to get everyone together on it, but we're going to get everyone together on fixing our country."
Pollack said Wallace and others in the media focused on guns in in their coverage order to generate better ratings.
"Today, it's not about guns," he said. "It's about the safety in our schools, and that's what you ask Governor Scott about … My kid's not here, because the schools weren't safe. That's the main thing."
Pollack also said Wednesday at the White House that gun laws shouldn't be the focus at the moment.
"It should have been one school shooting, and we should have fixed it! And I'm pissed," he said to President Donald Trump. "Because my daughter I'm not going to see again. She's not here."
