Manuel Oliver, whose son, Joaquin, was one of 17 killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, 2018, was a guest at the White House Monday as President Joe Biden announced new regulations cracking down on untraceable weapons, or “ghost guns.”
He was wearing the shoes his son was planning to wear to his prom, the Miami Herald reported.
Meanwhile, Rep. Ted Deutch arranged for the slain student to make an appearance of sorts on the House floor. Deutch brought the melted-down AR-15 that Manuel Oliver had bought without a background check and fashioned into Joaquin Oliver’s likeness.
