Parkland Teens Return to School with Clear Backpacks. They're Not Pleased.
After weeks of the Parkland teens from Marjory Stoneman High beating the gun control drum in efforts to get you to surrender your Constitutional right to self-preservation, the higher-ups at the school have decided clear backpacks are the way to go. How exactly a clear backpack is going to prevent a mass shooting, I don't know. Perhaps the thoughts of whoever wears a transparent pack are made transparent. Awkward for those with raging hormones and raging other things.
Then again, gun control wasn't stopping mass shootings either. Symbolism is as symbolism does.
The students at the school, whose school paraphernalia is no longer protected by opaque canvas, are not pleased with their privacy "rights" being violated.
Starting off the last quarter of senior year right, with a good ol’ violation of privacy! https://t.co/Glf9C14dsq— delaney hates politics (@delaney hates politics)1522677517.0
Delaney tried to start off the rest of your life with a good ol' violation of your Second Amendment rights!
My new backpack is almost as transparent as the NRA’s agenda. I feel sooo safe now. As much as I appreciate the… https://t.co/elIbobMVad— Lauren Hogg (@Lauren Hogg)1522678983.0
The NRA's agenda was always transparent, sweetie: to protect the Second Amendment from little snot goblins like yourself, too stupid to see the irony in your own tweet.
The effort to make schools safer with a clear backpack is rather useless. Much the same way as taking guns from the law-abiding for the crimes of criminals would have been useless.
Are you catching on yet? Need a Tide pod snack for a mental boost?
What would've helped the students in Parkland would've been for the government not to have failed them at every level. We've been over this repeatedly. Backpacks are not the problem. Guns are not the problem. People failing to do their jobs, from the Sheriff of Broward County to the FBI, to the SRO are the problem. Let's not also forget the shooter himself. He's more of the problem than the NRA, no?
But good to see the students realizing symbolic efforts are useless. Better they learn with plastic backpacks then by millions of Americans losing their right to keep and bear arms.
Just kidding, I don't expect them to learn anything.
There's no right to backpack privacy. Interesting these students are imagining Constitutional rights while calling for the removal of actual Constitutional rights.
