After the deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida that claimed 17 lives, hundreds of thousands of high school students took to the streets to send the government the message that gun control and student safety have to become a priority immediately.

Dallas Mayor Pro Team Dwaine decided to support the cause and stand against NRA. But according to TMZ, he’s facing severe consequences – death threats.

The Black Mayor urged the NRA to find a new city to house their year firearm orgy convention which is set to take place on May 4. The mayor said the NRA’s draw to the town would lead to demonstrations and that the organization needs to “come to the table” and be part of a solution.

Caraway now says his life has been threatened by people with guns who ironically insist that guns aren’t a problem in America. “It’s a tough deal now, don’t think that they’re happy with me,” Caraway said. “Don’t think that I’m not getting threatening emails and all types of things.”

When TMZ’s Harvey Levin asked Caraway whether he had death threats, he responded: “Oh, man, come on. You should hear some of the stuff they say…The thing that needs to happen for America is to sit down, look at some rules and laws that’s been on the books for more than 200 years and tweak them for today’s society and today’s generation.”

Caraway, who believes in the second amendment, says he owns guns himself but thinks that it’s time everyone came together after the massacre in Florida.

Nikolas Cruz, a former student at Marjory Stoneman High School, opened fire on teachers and classmates last week killing 17 and injuring 23.

According to NBC News, Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and is looking to plead guilty in exchange for a sentence of life without parole.

“A child’s life is worth more than a hundred million dollars,” Dwain Caraway said in the interview. “It’s not the money we’re dealing with now—it’s the future of these kids. Those kids in Florida who are the survivors, they have to live with this mental anguish of bullets crossing their heads, and screaming for their lives, the rest of their lives.”

The NRA has been largely criticized after the Parkland massacre by critics who say the gun-rights group is padding the pockets of lawmakers in Washington and keeping them from passing measures that could curb gun violence.

However, The NRA has responded to Caraway’s request. Andrew Arulanandam, the NRA’s managing director of public affairs, told News 8 the group is ready to return to Texas for the first time since they hosted their annual convention in Houston in 2013.

“No politician anywhere can tell the NRA not to come to their city,” Arulanandam said. “We are already there. Dallas, like every American city and community, is populated by NRA members. Our members work in fire stations and police departments. They save lives in local hospitals and own businesses in communities urban and rural throughout this country.”
