While the debate rages on between anti-gun supporters and pro-gun Americans, a simple phone call from an Orlando terror victim’s father makes everything much clearer. Common sense tells this former police officer that if his son had been armed , he would have had a chance… On Monday’s Sean Hannity Show, Sean received a surprising phone call from Mark Allen Bando, whose son was one of 49 killed in the Pulse nightclub shooting on Sunday morning. Bando, a retired Detroit Police officer who lives in Michigan, received confirmation of his son’s death on Monday.

“His mom talked to him on the phone that evening before he went to the club, so she knew he was going,” Bando said. “When she woke up Sunday morning and heard there’d been a massacre there, she went over there–she hadn’t heard from him so she feared the worst–and just today they finally told us that he was one of the victims that was killed at the scene. He never even made it to the hospital.”

Bando lamented the fact that so few Americans are arming themselves in order to prevent mass shootings like the one that occurred on Sunday morning.

“There is a simpler solution, as Donald Trump has said many times, if you have somebody shooting back the game’s over,” Bando said. “When the shooting started there wasn’t one person in there that wouldn’t have traded everything he owned in the world to have a loaded gun. But these people don’t realize it until they’re in a situation that’s far too late.”

Mark Allen’s son, an Orlando resident whom the grieving father described as “very gentle”, had just celebrated his 32nd birthday on June 1st.
