He is alive anyway. He doesn’t need a gun.
America doesn’t have a bill of needs, we have a Bill of Rights.
Correct on that one!…I agree.
I have continually said, it is SOCIAL MEDIA that these kids spend a
large part of their days on, and is the most contributory reason for all
the violence in the schools, NOT GUNS.
we should make guns, of all kinds, harder to get. But, it is the access
to SOCIAL MEDIAS that can reach 10s of thousands of children and
influence their non-discerning minds within seconds of “posting”. For
many children, 5-6 hours a day are spent making poor put-down comments
of classmates, posting of compromising pictures, and putting out
unfounded lies. Kids are not only committing crimes against others
because of these posts, but are committing suicide due to them.
time to take away these venues to minors who have not formed the
maturity to properly know proper etiquette on these forums.

Dylann Roof, was arrested after taking two weapons to school and posting

nationwide walkout “get shot.”
to put away the cell phones, and start cracking a book instead. There
should be cell phones for kids that only make phone calls, NOT attack
others in the most malicious of ways.
“It was really scary,” said Jaelyn Libarios, 17, of recent threats to Hawaii Island schools, including Konawaena High School. “
And to think, it was almost certainly one of these snowflakes, or some liberal adult that made the threats to further the narrative and get media hype.
The actions of the students are commendable.
Safety in schools is their immediate concern.
Civil obedience is for everyone.
A turning point is needed.
A picture speaks more than a thousand words. I hope the mentally challenged from the left can learn something from this picture.
Oh look, the euro-weenie hiding here away from the muzzie hordes in France is posting fake news from one of the lost leftist sources on the interwebs.
World Happiness Report 2018: Why Is US, Ranked 18th, Sadder Than Before?
I’ve been in most European countries and nothing compares with US quality of life. All the EU citizens are gloomy and lost most of their freedoms.
I would be even happier if the liberal democrats would increase their critical thinking.
He is a French surrender monkey, not American. he hates this country buy prefers it here than to his home that allowed hordes of muslims in.
So, how would the euro-weenie like to travel into one of the “no-go” zones in Paris without armed escort?
This is not too relevant to the topic but see here:
On Reddit forums that ask “What’s a dead giveaway that someone is
American?” one trait comes up over and over again: big, toothy grins.
Here’s how one Reddit user in Finland put it:
When a stranger on the street smiles at you:
a. you assume he is drunk
b. he is insane
c. he’s an American
Make another chart without suicides (you can NEVER outlaw suicides and how they can kill themselves). Exclude also the liberal democrat bastions of Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore and Ferguson. After all that, US is one of the most peaceful developed nations in the world.
The graphic drives home the fact that car accidents, cancer, diabetes and medical mistakes are far more deadly than guns. If we focused on any of those issues and made even a 10% improvement in lives saved, it would be a far greater achievement than trying to legislate the number of rounds of ammunitions, length of the barrel and firing rate of any weapon that legal gun owners have. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9496b4dc3fb7c9df59ec926c38d8d13f05bb0f15303bd1e12329b1b3668e45fd.jpg
None of these kids would know what the NRA really is , or what it does , if it jumped up and bit them on the okole . Poor little minions of a corrupt Leftist anti 2nd Amendment agenda .
Sorry kids , law biding ,legal gun owners will never relinquish their firearms , or their 2nd Amendment rights , no matter what or how the corrupt politicians might be able to change the laws to reflect . America is not Australia or Britain . These walk-outs are inspired by anti-Trump , anti NRA subversives . Go pound sand .
Politicians never let an opportunity go by to use kids as pawns….NICE!
While you’re at it teach them the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
