#MarchForOurLives Protesters Don't Know What an Assault Weapon Is
The #MarchForOurLives was everything it was advertised to be. Well wait a second... it was "advertised" as a march for safety. But I know that you know that I know it was really a march for gun control. Specifically taking away your rights to have guns. It's not like the organizers did a good job of hiding that (see #MarchForOurLives Speaker Admits True Gun Control Plans and Top 5 Idiotic Moments From 'March for Our Lives' Gun Control Rally). The scariest of guns to ban was, of course, the "assault weapon."
Dramatic music plays here.
However, this being a protest comprised of radical leftists, facts were more scarce than sense. Sense more scarce than truth at Facebook. Just because the protesters wanted to ban assault weapons, doesn't mean those same protesters know what an "assault weapon" actually is.
Those meddling kids from Campus Reform were on the case.
Every single march attendee that we spoke with made it clear: they want to ban assault weapons.
When asked if they knew what an assault weapon was, they were a little less clear.
“Um, I mean no. But ‘assault weapon,’ does that sound safe to you?” said one attendee.
“It’s an arm...like a gun for instance that you can buy at a shop pretty easily, that can like cause more deaths than one I guess,” added another.
The reason the gun debate never goes anywhere is that it's basically between two groups. Gun owners, and a coalition of the uninformed teaming up with the anti-gun leftists who lie to them. The latter group having the combined mental intelligence of, say a recently clipped toe nail.
The march over the weekend is what happens when that same coalition has nothing to do on a Saturday. It is spring time, after all. Time to get out into the sunshine to reclaim a little vitamin D lost through the winter months. If only sense could be as easily absorbed by one's outside environment. Wait... has the left outlawed reading yet?
People on the left act surprised gun owners aren't quick to surrender their rights to a parade of senseless twits. Though so low is their grasp on truth, I guess that's not a shock.
