However, following the shooter’s first court visit on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, her father, Aaron Franklin, is slammed for using crystal meth.

He also spoke of being a conservative Republican. He said:
“My opinion on gay people is that it’s not okay. I think we should stand up against homosexuality.”
