“Allan Fung came out yesterday from ‘protective custody’ after two weeks of waiting for everyone else in the world to respond to the shooting in Parkland, Florida. Among others, his response comes after statements by his two opponents in the primary, the current governor, and me, the independent candidate he will face if he wins the primary.
