Today is a special day. All across the land, teens and adult haters of boomsticks chose to unite for Duncefest 2018 “March For Our Lives.” A thinly-veiled attempt at ending the Second Amendment. Looking at the event, you would assume every youngster and non-NRA member hates gats with a passion. Well, the anti-gunnery isn’t universal.
Andrew Pollack’s daughter was killed in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Kyle Kashuv is a student there. They both have a message that the media – for some reason – doesn’t seem to want to push.
On Saturday, thousands of students flooded the streets in Washington, DC to protest school safety, yet have shut out voices — like Kashuv and Pollack — looking to protect the Second Amendment.
I think we’re getting a clear picture here. When you’re out to round up all the gats, the spotlight is on you. On the other hand, when your message is anything other than “gotta grab em’ all,” they won’t give your pro-gun posterior the time of day.
Kyle and Mr. Pollack make some good points. Even better, none of their proposals involve violating anyone’s constitutional rights. A win-win if I ever heard of one. Except, for leftists, the Constitution is nothing more than a 250-year old square of toilet paper.
Gun-grabbers are doing everything they can to keep the debate one-sided. Either you’re with them, or you support systematic child murder. As for people like Kyle Kashuv and Mr. Pollack, the left is perfectly content pretending they don’t exist. It’s much easier to unperson detractors and boot them from their march than to let it out that other perspectives exist.
The left can play their games, but no sleight of hand is going to make them any less wrong on the issue.
