In case you didn’t know, the teen members of Future Social Justice Warriors of America want your boomsticks, and they want them now. At the forefront of their movement is David Hogg, a survivor of the Stoneman school shooting. Little Dave has been all over the airwaves as of late, bashing NRA “child murderers” and excoriating gun owners for not supporting “common sense” gun control.
Hogg recently made this tweet where he praised another teen for his gun control plan and encouraged other people like him to stand up.

Davey was nice enough to include a printed copy of that gun control plan in the photograph:
The only guns allowed for home ownership should be a pistol (revolver) or shotgun. Hunting rifle may be owned, but the types of allowable sights prohibited (Nothing that will allow a shooter to be further away than the cop can focus on).
No guns to be sold or owned that have a magazine of any type.
I take it he means detachable box magazines, seeing as just about every long gun has a magazine (the place where the boom pellets are stored) of some type.
Private production of bullets is prohibited.
Bad news, my fellow reloaders. You can say bye-bye to that $1500 Dillon press you just bought if these kiddos get their way. Though, I have yet to see a single mass shooter pictured at a reloading bench, trimming and priming 5.56 cases for his upcoming trip to the schoolhouse. I guess these kids have something against recycling.
A gun owner can have a onetime life supply of a small number of bullets to bring home. All other bullets must be bought at the range (price issues to be worked out) and used at the range.
Well, that rant was rife with errors, contradictions, and overall incoherence. I can’t help but wonder if this kid was drunk on Tide Pods when he came up with this. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the soon-to-be leaders of America.
This kid does a fine job of representing his fellow gun-grabbers. He has very little knowledge of firearms and he’s proposing “solutions” which are overreaching and irrelevant in a mass-shooting debate. If this were an argumentative writing class, Chuckie would get an F. Provided of course the teacher wasn’t concealing a Che Guevara T-shirt under his button-down.
Look, it’s important for these voices to be heard, yes. If they want to be a part of the debate, the public should respect them enough to analyze their opinions. No hiding behind the veil of victimhood. There’s a reason why we usually don’t let children make the big decisions. They’re short on information and they lack fully-functional frontal lobes. Maybe that’s why the left has taken such a liking to teen activists. They have so much in common.
