March for our Lives is happening March 24th in Washington DC and around the country. Find out more, get involved, no more children need die because Congress cannot lead.
Gun control laws work in Australia, Japan, and other industrialized countries. How come they work there but not in the USA?
If the USA does not need gun control laws, then the USA does NOT NEED illegal immigration laws, terrorism laws and anti-marijuana laws.
The only way we as a country are ever going to stop this is with common sense gun laws. In order to do that, we need to vote out republicans . VOTE OUT ALL REPUBLICANS IN NOVEMBER 2018 AND NOVEMBER 2020!!!!!
Protest marches have given us : Civil Right Laws , Women and 18 year Olds the right to vote , E.P.A. Laws and have stopped wars .Don,t believe anyone who says you are wasting your time . Sorry for letting you kids down ,when it comes to Assault Weapons
One of the so called leaders, David Hogg is a fucking crisis activists claiming to be a student. So Called "Student", But actually a CRISIS ACTOR , David Hogg, was on camera months ago, pretending to be a high school student in California. Now, suddenly, he is a high school student in Florida???
Here's a thought to warm some of your hearts ... from Ed Chenel, a police officer in AustraliaHi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under. It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.The first year results are now in:* Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent ...* Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent ...* Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steadydecrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in 'successfully ridding Australian society of guns ...'You won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
The problem is the lack of respect common sense patience and responsibility. What these kids need is parental guidance. Get your butts back in school and get an education.
I truly hope gun violence decreases. I’ve seen gun control but nothing seems to change. Major gun laws were enacted in 68,86 and in the 90’s including the Brady bill and a ban on assault weapons. School shootings seem to have started while there was a ban. Maybe we should return to the ban but I would not be hopeful it would change anything. Things will change only after the culture becomes less violent. How about ending war? These high school kids don’t have much hope either. Imagine starting out with what they are facing. Everything costs too much.
Gun control is an illusion. We have 300M guns already in the hands of 100M Americans. Focus on the sick shooter. We have always had guns in this country. Society has changed, not the guns.
I consider myself a conservative, a Mueller type conservative who objectively supports the Constitution, but many of the people I see on here claiming to be constitutional conservatives that are mocking these kids, mocking liberals over semantics, and embracing a perverted interpretation of the 2nd Amendment are the same people who are against football players exercising the 1st Amendment. The same people who demand allegiance and submission to Trump. These people are not conservatives or constitutionalists, even though they label themselves as such. They are populists, nationalists, often racist and in some cases even fascists.
So proud of these kids. My generation marched to stop the Vietnam war and this generation will do great things with their activism. It’s the only thing that makes a difference.
