Student Walkout For Gun Control Sweeps Nation


EARLIER TODAY MANY THOUSANDS
OF STUDENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND IN FACT ACROSS THE WORLD
PARTICIPATED IN THE NATIONAL SCHOOL WALKOUT DAY — I ALSO SAW, IT WAS MAINLY A
LOT OF HIGH SCHOOLS, BUT ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AS WELL, I
BELIEVE I SAW A TWEET ABOUT ONE SECOND-GRADER WHO WAS THE ONLY
KID, THERE WERE NONE OTHERS, SO HE WENT TO THE LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL
AND WALKED WITH THEM AND HAD A SIGN THAT SAID GUNS ARE CRUEL,
NOT COOL. HE WAS A SECOND-GRADER. WHICH WAS
AMAZING. OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE DOING THIS BOTH THE HIGHLIGHT
THE CONTINUING NEED FOR ACTION, OF WHICH THERE HAS BEEN EXTREME
A LITTLE — THERE WAS A VERY MIXED BILL IN FLORIDA AND
EARLIER TODAY THE HOUSE PASSED JUST ABOUT THE MOST WEAK SAUCE
SCHOOL VIOLENCE PREVENTION BILL IMAGINABLE — I’M ASSUMING MANY
STUDENTS AT THESE MARCHERS WANT FAR MORE AND THEY ARE MAKING IT
CLEAR THAT THEY WILL CONTINUE THEIR ACTIVISM TOWARD THAT, AND
THEY EXPECT POLITICIANS WHO STAND IN THE WAY OF THAT CHANGE
TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE IN THE PRIMARIES COMING UP AND
CERTAINLY IN THE GENERAL ELECTION LATER ON TODAY. WE WILL
HAVE SOME MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE BREADTH OF THESE MARCHES BUT
CENK, WHAT IS YOUR REACTION? SOME FOLKS THAT ARE
SUPERINTENDENTS, PRINCIPALS, ACROSS THE COUNTRY, ARE NOT
ALLOWING THEIR STUDENTS TO MARCH. THE SUPERINTENDENT IN
HARTFORD COUNTY, MARYLAND, SAID THAT INSTEAD SHE WILL DO A
LEARNING MODULE, WHICH SOUNDS FUN, WHICH ALLOWS THEM TO SPEAK
ABOUT SOLUTIONS IN A STRUCTURED WAY. THAT’S PART OF THE PROBLEM,
IS THAT THEY KEEP TELLING EVERYONE, STAY WITHIN THE LINES. STAY WITHIN THE LINES. WITHIN THE LINES HAVE WE GOTTEN
ANYTHING DONE? NO. WILL WE EVER? NO. PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF BEING
TOLD TO STAY IN THE LINES AND DO WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT AND THE
ELITES TELL YOU AND EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE. IT WON’T BE FINE,
IT’S NOT FINE NOW, THAT’S THE POINT OF THE WALKOUT. AND SOME
ADMINISTRATORS IN THESE SCHOOLS, IN FACT I SAW TWO DIFFERENT
QUOTES FROM TWO DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COUNTRY SAYING ARE YOU
CRAZY? WE AREN’T GOING TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS. IF YOU HAVE
THE KIDS WALK OUT THEY WILL BE SITTING DUCKS FOR SHOOTERS. THAT
MIGHT GIVE YOU A SENSE OF WHY YOU SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT
IT. HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT, AND THEN NOT REALIZE THE IMPORTANCE
AND THE GRAVITY OF THESE WALKOUTS? THAT IS PRECISELY WHY
THEY ARE WALKING OUT, BECAUSE YOU THINK IT’S A NORMAL STATE OF
AFFAIRS THAT IF YOU HAVE STUDENTS OUTSIDE YOUR SCHOOL
IT’S INVITING A MASSACRE. YOU CAN’T LEAVE THE CASTLE,
CENK, OBVIOUSLY. THIS IS A FORTRESS, IT’S THE ONLY THING
PROTECTING OUR KIDS. THANKFULLY THEY AREN’T COLORING INSIDE THE
LINES. AND THERE WERE SOME SCHOOLS I SAW THAT HAD, AS I
SAID, ONE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT WHO WENT OUT, I SAW B.E.T. TWEETED
OUT A LIVE STREAM VIDEO OF A STUDENT WHO WAS THE ONLY ONE. LOOK, SOME SCHOOLS ARE SUPER SUPPORTIVE OF IT AND SOME
AREN’T, AND THE KIDS WHO ARE WILLING TO GO OUT THERE ANYWAY,
THAT’S EXACTLY THE TYPE OF TEEN WE NEED IN THIS COUNTRY RIGHT
NOW AND I TOTALLY AGREE WITH CENK ABOUT THE NEED TO NOT
LISTEN TO THE ADMINISTRATORS IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE. AGAIN, ALL
OF THIS IS BASICALLY HAPPENING BECAUSE OF THE TEENS AT THE
STONEMAN DOUGLAS SCHOOL, AND AS WE WILL TALK ABOUT LATER ON THIS
IS JUST THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF UPCOMING MAJOR EVENTS, IN NOT
TOO MANY MORE WEEKS WE HAVE THE BIG ONE, THE MARCH TO SAVE THEIR
LIVES IN DC. BUT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE PARTICULAR
MARCHES — I BELIEVE THAT WAS 19 YEARS
AGO, THEY WILL HAVE A MARCH ON THAT PARTICULAR DATE TOO. BUT
WHAT IS AMAZING ABOUT THAT IS YOU HAVE KIDS WHO ARE
PARTICIPATING IN THAT MARCH AT COLUMBINE AT THE WALKOUT WHO
WEREN’T BORN WHEN COLUMBINE HAPPENED, BUT THIS IS STILL A
PROBLEM YOU’RE TRYING TO DEAL WITH AND THERE HAS BEEN ALMOST
NO ACTUAL PROGRESS. HELL, AT LEAST WHEN COLUMBINE HAPPENED
THERE WAS AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN THAT LAPSED SEVERAL YEARS LATER,
WE SEEM UNABLE TO EVEN GET THAT AGAIN. ALSO — THERE WERE ALSO INTERNATIONAL
MARCHES, IN LONDON, IN TANZANIA WITH ONE TEACHER AT THE TANZANIA
SCHOOL SAYING THANKFULLY WE DON’T HAVE AN ARMED CIVILIAN
POPULATION SO WE DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS BUT THEY HAVE
EMPATHY FOR THOSE WHO DO, IN ISRAEL AND ICELAND, ONE SCHOOL
PLANS TO BUT IT WAS UNFORTUNATELY TOO COLD BUT WE
APPRECIATE THE THOUGHT. THE TANZANIA QUOTE WAS WHAT
STRUCK ME, I WILL GIVE YOU THE EXACT QUOTE, WE ARE LUCKY TO
LIVE IN A COUNTRY THAT IS RELATIVELY GUN FREE SO IT’S NOT
SOMETHING OUR STUDENTS HAVE TO THINK ABOUT, SAID TEACHER
COURTNEY PARK. LUCKILY THEY LIVE IN AN AFRICAN COUNTRY LIKE
TANZANIA WHERE THEY ARE CIVILIZED AND DEVELOPED, UNLIKE
IN AMERICA WHERE WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT NONSTOP MASSACRES OF
OUR CHILDREN. THAT’S THE STATE OF WORLD AFFAIRS RIGHT NOW, AND
THAT’S NO JOKE, THAT’S ABSOLUTELY TRUE. IN ISRAEL THE
AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL THERE ALSO PARTICIPATED, BUT IF
YOU THINK ABOUT IT, WE ARE FAR LESS SAFE IN AMERICA THAN
STUDENTS IN ISRAEL ARE. I THINK ROUGHLY THE CHANCES OF GETTING
HIT BY A ROCKET LAUNCHED BY HAMAS HIS ABOUT 10,000 TIMES
LESS THAN THE CHANCE OF BEING KILLED IN A SCHOOL SHOOTING IN
AMERICA, OR A MASS SHOOTING IN AMERICA. LOOK, YOU CAN DO THE
MATH ON IT YOURSELF, WHAT, OVER 30,000 GUN HOMICIDES A YEAR IN
AMERICA, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE KILLED BY TERRORISM IN ISRAEL IS
FAR, FAR LESS. MY POINT ISN’T THAT TERRORISM ISN’T A REAL
THREAT IN ISRAEL, MY POINT IS THE GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA IS
10,000 TIMES A GREATER THREAT TO US AND OUR KIDS, AND WE GO ON
ABOUT OUR LIVES LIKE EVERYTHING IS FINE, RIGHT? AND WE TALK
ABOUT FOREIGN TERRORISTS. NO, THE THING YOU HAVE TO WORRY
ABOUT IS US TERRORIZING OURSELVES WITH GUNS AT A SCALE
THAT THE WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN, WHERE OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE
TANZANIA LOOK AT US AND SAY OH MY GOD, WHO WOULD WANT TO LIVE
IN A VIOLENT, BACKWARDS PLACE LIKE AMERICA? THAT IS WHERE WE
ARE RIGHT NOW AND THAT’S WHY THEY ARE DOING THE WALKOUTS AND
THAT’S WHY IT IS SUPER IMPORTANT. FINALLY, COLUMBINE
WAS A HUGE MARKER FOR WHEN WE PERCEIVED THE MASS SHOOTINGS AT
THE SCHOOLS TO BEGIN. THE REALITY IS THERE WERE SCHOOL
SHOOTINGS BEFORE BUT IT WAS ON SUCH A BIG SCALE THAT AT THE
TIME WE WERE NOT USED TO IT. I REMEMBER THAT DAY, IT WAS THE
VERY FIRST DAY I HAPPENED TO BE ON TV. REALLY? THAT’S RIGHT, MY PRODUCERS
GOT PULLED FOR ME TO COVER COLUMBINE AND I HAD NO IDEA WHAT
I WAS DOING, PEOPLE HAD BIGGER PROBLEMS. THAT WAS 19 YEARS AGO,
AND NOW ON APRIL 20 THEY WILL DO ANOTHER WALKOUT THIS YEAR
BECAUSE OF COLUMBINE. AND WE GOT USED TO THE MASSACRES IN THE
SCHOOLS UNTIL PARKLAND, WHERE THE STUDENTS FINALLY SAID WE
AREN’T GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE. BECAUSE THE ADULTS AREN’T DOING
ANYTHING. WHICH THEN REMINDS ME OF WHAT HAPPENED DOWN IN FLORIDA
WHEN THEY WERE DISCUSSING THIS PIECE OF LEGISLATION. AGAIN,
THEY DID A TINY PIECE OF LEGISLATION SAYING THERE SHOULD
BE A THREE DAY WAITING PERIOD. WOW. AND THE AGE FOR ASSAULT
WEAPONS SHOULD BE 21, RATHER THAN 18. THESE ARE MINUSCULE
CHANGES. PRESIDENT TRUMP PROPOSED UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND
CHECKS, WHICH AN OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF AMERICANS AGREE
WITH, INCLUDING ABOUT 7/10 NRA MEMBERS SAY THERE SHOULD BE
UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS, 78% OF GUN OWNERS SAY THERE SHOULD
BE UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS, AND ALSO INCREASING THE AGE TO
21, AND THE NRA SAID HOW DARE YOU? GET BACK IN LINE. AND TRUMP
GOT BACK IN LINE AND WITHDREW THOSE PROPOSALS. THEY CONTROL
THEM COMPLETELY. AND ONE LEGISLATOR HAD THE AUDACITY IN
FLORIDA TO GET UP AND SAY THESE KIDS DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE
DOING, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR THEM. LEGISLATION IS DONE BY
ADULTS. WELL, HOW IS THAT GOING FOR US? THOSE CORRUPT ADULTS WHO
KEEP TAKING MONEY FROM THE NRA, WHICH GETS IT FROM GUN
MANUFACTURERS, WHICH LITERALLY PROFIT OFF THE DEATH OF OUR
KIDS. HOW ARE THE ADULTS DOING SO FAR? IN THIS CASE I’LL TAKE
THE KIDS OVER THE ADULTS ANY DAY.

    Stupid, waste of time, farce. Gun control/agenda won't change the mind or intent of someone committed.

  4. No Name says:

    The NRA and Trump and Republicans are disgusting and cowardly and evil.

  5. Chris Ashcroft says:

    "Speak about solutions…in a structured way." The "structure" is gun control is off the table.

  6. Starbright Wingtips says:

    I guess all the down (dislike) votes on this video were made by people who support the massacre of school children. America is a sad and broken place nowadays.

    Some things can not be taught by staying inside a classroom.

  9. Obiwan Russell says:

    Face it America, you have devolved your once great nation into the world's largest Banana Republic! Civilised Nations solved this problem easily a long time ago. The USA loves their guns so much more than their Children, and the whole world knows it.

    My daughters high school did it…in Belleville,Ill

  11. ᔕɧყ レųиą says:

    I live in Canada and seeing those signs and the thousands of kids on the news made me cry and cry. Children shouldn't have to do this!!!! They shouldn't have to beg for their lives! How can the adults in power not be touched and want to change things immediately?!????? I'm sure a lot of them have kids too….. Is money more important than their children's lives also??? It's all just so sick and sad already! As parents in America (if you own guns) how can you look at your child and say love you when every day you let them go off to school or anywhere else for that matter and they may not come back home ever again???? No guns, no deaths by guns. Less violence!!!!! Enough IS enough really America. You just look pathetic now defending your old constitution. Change with the times…. The kids are more grown up than anyone in office that can change the laws. Time to grow up!!!!! No one else should die due to gun violence. Other countries live without fear, guns are not making you safe America. Open your eyes. Listen to these children.

  12. Joshua Zimmer says:

    It's 2018… 2018.. and this is the shit world we've built for these children. I for one am personally ashamed.. the hippies.. gen x.. we've lost our steam.. we've lost what these children have.. HOPE IN A BETTER FUTURE .. we can do it, we can do it for our children and grandchildren. We can change the way we look at the world around us and we CAN start building a better future for all humanity

  13. Timothy Duffy says:

    It seems that trump is going to let time sweep everything under the carpet. There will be no gun control laws under his rule. He is waiting for the coast to clear before everything goes back to normal.

  14. robrobbins says:

    We didn't have a mass shooting this week. We are overdue for another one. There will probably be a mass shooting next week.

  15. Vanessa Pereira says:

    No child have to go through this. 😞 It's like a kid begging their parents to protect them from any harm/ danger.

    too bad would not work here. everyone was on spring break

  19. Stephanie Gonzalez says:

    I remember doing this when i was in high school for immigration! The school didn't condone it but when all ur kids are walking out its hard to do anything… They had cops help with traffic when we marched to city hall…

  20. Robo Tech says:

    The Florida pedestrian assault bridge walkout will be tomorrow at 5pm. Bridges are cruel , not cool

  22. Jim Jones says:

    Why so many down votes? Guns > Children?

  23. ROBERT DUFAULT says:

    This is not an opinion this is a question. What exactly do walkouts, sit-ins, marches & such actually accomplish? Has any laws ever changed because these? Isn't there something more assertive that can be done instead of these walkouts?

  28. TC Just TC says:

    that moment when Tanzania is gun-shaming you… c'mon USA are you going to take that?

  29. HawleyEd says:

    I was subbing at an alternative high school. The kids were so respectful and I was really proud of them for their participation in the walk-out. They took it absolutely seriously…no goofing off. I felt honored to be with them during that time.

  30. Brandon Toad says:

    I love how Conservatives get more anger at this than Congress not listening to us.

  31. HillBilly Biker says:

    2/3 of the students walked out just to get out of class

  32. CosmicCum says:

    Anyone saying "It's time for thoughts and payers" is saying it's time to submit to fear and do nothing, those people are the problem!

    Tanzania, an African " shithole" country, is more enlightened than America. Thanks, Trumpoids.

  38. Dimitri Mancini says:

    Guns Don’t Kill People People Kill People…and this is why progressives and liberals lose on the issue of gun control because they have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to guns ill be laughing when republicans take back the white house in 2018 and 2020

  39. Kenna McGerty says:

    Some of the students at my high school made signs. The most powerful ones had the Parkland shooting victim's names or photos and one person even made one that said "am I next?" I saw another sign that mentioned Columbine as well.

  40. Qwamqwamasket Ilmixum says:

    Very little action? What do you mean?! There’s been TONS of thoughts and prayers! Be grateful, John!

  41. Vincent Jamesderamo says:

    my school walked out even though we had 3 inches of snow 25 degress with 15 mphs winds

  42. Trinthemusicalnerd :D says:

    My middle school did it, some did it to get out of the school but I did it because it was important, they need to realize we're important and we have a voice for a reason. They need to take action and make safer school environments. Our schools have done all we could, it takes a bigger voice to finish it though.

  43. theycallmemrshaggs says:

    Last Saturday, in Columbus, Ohio, they held a pro-gun rally at the statehouse. They really do not give a shit about anyone but themselves…

  44. Zurround100 says:

    some principles threatened to suspend any students who participated but if most of the kids do and you have to suspend most of the school that makes them look like real assholes.

  45. That-dude-with-a-really-long-ass-screen-name.Ha-you-actually-read-it. says:

    Im a gun owner (several) and I support these students. Because I'm one of the few who actually supporters the 2A I support tighter regulations (over 21, three day weight for comprehensive background, medical, and psychiatric evaluations).

  46. Curt Christensen says:

    self-entitled crybabies who accomplish nothing

  47. Erik S says:

    Maybe a couple more mass shootings in statehouses and congress halls would wake them up to the dangers that students across the country know they face every day, because their "representatives" are spineless worms in front of the NRA. Maybe then, when senators and representatives are gunned down will they understand that this is an unacceptable state of affairs. Until that day comes and those legislators get it through their corrupt skulls, let's hope these kids can make a difference and show adults how to get things done.

  48. Po's Project says:

    There are 12,000 annual gun homicides in America not 30,000….total gun deaths is 30k but about 20k of those deaths are suicides. It’s important to state the facts as I believe TYT normally does.

  49. Redeemer Hades123 says:

    These kids are idiots it's not some psycho he was 18 when is school kill a bunch of people you going to take her right away Young Americans you are 18 years old through 20 year olds who is old enough to get married old enough to vote join the military law enforcement to buy a rifle shotgun for protection or hunting

  50. grahepo says:

    the murderer is nikolas cruz, the 17 deaths were caused by him, the sheriff departments that failed to protect the students and the obama school leniency policy that prevented nikolas cruz records to be properly kept by law enforcement

    this walkout simply showed how vulnerable kids are to manipulation by democrats and their anti gun agenda although a lot of democrats also own guns!!!

    Just a big FYI

    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

    Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    56 million defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control:

    You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

    Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

    With guns, we are "citizens". Without them, we are "subjects".

    During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

  62. golden taco says:

    Kids have passion, but lack knowledge, don't know about the world, and are extremely susceptible to partisan politics. (And honestly, most of these kids were told were doing this and this and they went along with it and didn't care, lol. When I was in high school I know what I thought about.) I've been a long term gun control advocate, but this whole thing is very misguided. The FBI, the Sheriff's department, or law enforcement in general dropped the ball before most of the most recent mass shootings, especially this last one. That Florida Sheriff is getting off so easy because everyone is focusing on guns. The kid threatened to shoot up the school!!! Smh

    Also, I hope these kids realize that the vast majority of gun violence is done by criminals/criminal gangs …a much bigger issue.

    Which part of shall not be infringed did you crazy people forget to read?
    12,000 children die to guns every year? 500,000 children are murdered before they are even born. Where is the walk out?
    Ya'll are all crazy. "pro choice" my ass, you don't want people to have a choice, you want to legislate people and enslave them at the point of a gun.

    If people think that you need to be 21 to buy a gun you must also believe that military enlistment should also be 21 years old. Not to mention that but gender reassignment surgery and circumcision should also be 21 years old.

    Unfortunately my college and my little sister's high school could not be apart of the walkout because this week was spring break, we had no school to walk out of. Hopefully there will be another national one for columbine too so us north texas kids can join too

  72. Donna Little says:

    Wiitle away Freedom Sorry but there no exc use why our children school don't have security guards ,metal detectors and cameras no excuse our airports have them Not the school there is no excuse! Stop the use of kids for political agenda…Another brick in the wall…I am sure there alot of retired vets people who would willingly step up to the plate to prptect the kids NO excuses.This has been going on far to long Not to have had security.

  73. Paul Kallmeyer says:

    You wanna control guns join the service or the police department. The law gives you the opportunity to have a weapon to defend people have that employment gives you a bigger bonus to show anyone that you are able to handle a gun properly and you can act from them inside enough spoken

    Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders.

    SOLUTION:

    It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.

    We don't need gun control, we need Democrat control.

    Guns don't kill people, Democrats do!

    Should do a video on students who got into trouble for simply staying in class during the walkout. You more than likely won't though. Doesn't fit the narrative

  83. joshua badillo says:

    Tanzania also has a much higher murder rate.

    My favourite part of this political statement is the fact that it’s got so many conservatives butthurt and showing their true colours. Wishing death on children peacefully protesting.

  89. Don Juan Matus says:

    Stupid kids. Explains how these kids know about guns. They have no clue about how the world and how it operates

  90. Kratos and Boy says:

    30,000 gun homicides every year….ok

  91. josh frohman says:

    Have any of these students done any actual research on gun control?? It's sad that the school them selves are taking part in political agendas whether the students want to or not. What needs to be done is to enforce the laws already in place.

  92. Deathdragon228 says:

    Most people just used it as an excuse to skip class lmao

  93. Realty First says:

    It’s time we changed the 2nd amendment and create new laws, really only military should have guns, no one needs a fully semi automatic assault rifle machine gun! If you own a gun your only intentions are to kill be that animals or people. We live in a world where your 60% more likely to die from a gun.

  94. ldc5238 says:

    These kids brains are not even fully developed, They are prograhamed as to what to think. They are nothing more than marionettes dancing to their masters tune. The Communist left only knows how to expolit and control the weak minded and defenseless. 60% of all gun deaths are self inflected by suicide. Most of your true gun violence takes place in Cities like Chicago, New Orleans, Boston, Detroit, LA and the likes of those cities, all them are onclaves of liberal control. If the Broward/coward county Sheriff's Department had done their job those kids would not have been massacred. If the weapon of choice wasn't a AR sporting rifle it would have been some other weapon. If a 18 year-old nut bag uses a car to runover twenty people are you going to protest and stop everyone from driving until their 21. The liberal commies want all guns banshed they think they can just go after ARs first because most of the public has been brain washed into thinking they are evil black rifles. No such thing, there are only evil people and evil people will use anything and anyone they can to inslave and kill people, even their own government. Don't be so ignorant and fall for the propaganda that infringes upon your rights. Don't let liberals make you a victim.

  95. daniel mayer says:

    To all the zombies and brain washed kids who "marched on gun violence": you are a danger to yourself and others and you can stick your hash tags straight up your collective groupthink ass. You are philosophical idiots and willing slaves, begging to chain the generations to come in even deeper levels of slavery over your fear. Those who believe that an object is the problem and not the human mind are the ACTUAL danger in our world today. You want to run from psychology, you don't care to know yourself, you live in a fiction, a fantasy, a materialist world of abject terror. You are under the delusion that disarming the population will make us safer. You use children as your ideological tool. You believe you are shielding them, when in truth you're dooming them. What's truly scary is that you would rather be slaves than responsible. Your lazy mental cowardice is the reason why people are cracking. Why children are not stable and emotionally unanchored. Why you believe that drugging them instead of addressing the actual problem of a society that has lost it's soul and worships materialism, is the solution. Fools and beggars and slaves, all. Enjoyed your chains, they will rest with tremendous weight and burden on your spirit, mind and body….forever. You earned them.

    Nominal GDP per capita in Tanzania is $1K, so yes they may not have this particular issue, but let's not pretend like there's any kind of a comparison.

  98. QuantumBraced says:

    30,000 gun homicides in America is NOT all high school mass shootings. High school mass shooting and mass shootings in general are a tiny fraction of all gun-related deaths. You have more of a chance of dying in a plane crash. It's still a very real and serious issue that we need to solve, but if you wanna tackle gun violence, your problem is hand guns that kill 1-2 people at a time, not assault rifles and mass shootings.

  99. Emily M says:

    In my MIDDLE SCHOOL people brought guns and luckily were caught before anything, but changing the age will not stop it. They got guns underage so I don’t think it will help.
