As we near the second anniversary of the Parkland school shooting on Friday, the father of a victim says his outburst at last week's State of the Union came after hearing President Trump say the Second Amendment was under attack.

Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year old daughter Jaime died in the tragedy, says that when the president made that statement he thought of his daughter and that's why he shouted out "What about victims of gun violence like my daughter."

Guttenberg was a guest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the speech.

After his outburst, he was ejected from the House Chamber by U.S. Capitol Police and detained for a short time.

The man says he tries to do what he does without letting his emotions get the best of him, but they did that night and he'll try not to let it happen again.
