The Left will just continue to ignore this fact, stick their fingers in their ears, and yell La, La, La, La, La. Just like the little children they are.

That has not however prevented gun advocy groups from using propaganda to sustain the fear it will happen if they take their eye off the ball.
I never thought I'd see any sort of marijuana legalization in my lifetime.

I've learned to never say "never."

These kids, particularly the survivors like those in Florida and Nevada who have seen first-hand what happens to the human body during one of these attacks, are a force to be reckoned with.

Many are already old enough to vote and there are a lot of them.

If they continue to mobilize, they will be unstoppable.

GO them!

Source? Make it one that isn't the NRA or NRA-affiliated.

Like the CDC? The NRA can't put out false facts, as there are so many leftist opponents that scrutinize their content that it would have come out their info is false LONG AGO. The NRA prints stories about good guys and women, stopping criminals with a gun every month in "American Rifleman". The cite their sources, and they are never called out on printing lies, because all the stories are true.

It won't. See below.

It won't. You don't understand how guns are legally defined and regulated; general legal mechanics which are shared by everything that is regulated. See below.

Lack of laws is not the problem, and neither is the NRA. They can put a million more laws on the books but it serves no purpose if there is no enforcement.

Taking guns away from responsible citizens only leaves guns in the hands of the criminals who don't care about laws anyway. This is the point the easily mortified liberals don't understand. The easily mortified liberals don't have a clue as to what they're rallying against or what kind of a solution is practical and workable.
Seriously?

The high school kids who saw the carnage WITH THEIR OWN EYES don't have clue as to what they are rallying against?

Honestly, no one can be that simple-minded, can they?

Unbelievable.

Great article. I'd read it before and was looking for it again, so thanks to Moneill.

You seem to be encouraging people to vote on their emotions when voting on principle is more practical. For example, my sister was a crack addict. Emotional thinkers would expect me to support more drug laws. I consider all federal drug laws unconstitutional. What I feel about my sister's death does not factor into my principles.

I was reminded over the weekend that President Reagan was surrounded by professional good guys with guns when he was shot.

Funny how that is so often forgotten/ignored.

Why are you projecting that they are voting on emotions? I'm pretty sure that these are these kids' principles.
