West Virginia Governor, Jim Justice recently opened up a speech at a local high school and made a joke about getting shot, just two weeks after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Republican Governor was caught on tape asking a crowd of teachers at Spring Mills High School, "Okay everybody. Nobody's going to shoot at me or anything, are you?"
His comments are receiving a lot of backlash - "What a moronic thing to say. How out of touch can he be?" somebody stated.
Spring's video has been viewed over 82,000 times since the video was shared online on Monday evening.
