March For Our Lives

Has anyone followed this? Living not too far from Stoneman Douglas HS, it is on our news constantly.
Every time I see those kids on TV demanding and recently threatening our Government Officials.  Ban guns or we will vote you out of office. Only a handful are old enough to vote and all but the dirtiest Dems wouldnt dare as they know they wont survive in office until the kids are old enough.
Someone is spending millions to keep Hogg and the few loudmouths on TV.   They will be disrupting major cities and blocking traffic tomorrow.
How do we get the other side heard?

    How do you get the other side heard? Organize a counter protest and shout down Hogg and his little piglet followers! :smiley:

    The politicizing of private firearms ownership will continue to subject our citizenry to the frivolous whims of the ignorant, disingenuous, and phobic of our society. The ultimate conclusion is far beyond my ability to predict.

    There's a counter protest in my little town tomorrow hosted by a LGS. I'm not sure what they hope to accomplish, considering there will be no press present...

    The news is saying hundreds of thousands to participate.

    I never thought I'd ever see such blatant lieing from the media in my life. It even po's me when the lies are in support of my favored narrative. This type of controlling manipulation of information will eventually bring down the whole country. It could even lead to world wide armed conflict.

    Many thousands yes, I can believe that, it's supported by what I see. Hundreds of thousands? Yea ok, whatever.

    Shouldn't young people who have been brainwashed into mindless actions by adult zealots be wearing some sort of distinctive clothing to identify them?  In the 1930's, brown shirts were the item of choice!

    Hey sports fans
    The New England Patriots Team Owner sent their private jet to transport Students to DC for the march.

    Guess we know what side they support. Another reason to hate the NFL for putting their nose into politics

    Maybe we could get Tide to inject alum in their Tide Pods.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    This is nothing remotely close to a grass roots movement. It will fizzle out soon. Bloomberg may be rich, but he doesn't have close to enough cash to sustain this for a long time.

    Have to be honest, they had a larger turn out than I thought.

    I flipped back and forth to it on CSPAN (to avoid commentary) and I noticed one thing - I must give this crowd a lot of credit for not carrying American flags. I saw a lot of signs, but not one Old Glory was to be seen. It would have been a gross insult to the Stars & Stripes to appear at such a travesty.

    Again let me reiterate how much I hate the new forum's mobile capabilities. Trying to reply about jerm's comment re Grass Roots.

    I'm not so sure. For whatever reason this last one seems to have galvanized a lot of people on the left to want to try and do something. It may still fizzle, but based on my Facebook feed, which admittedly is mostly liberals exept for the people I know from here, there's a lot of people fed up with these shootings. They want something done and hate the NRA. My neighbors have a huge chalk text on the side of their house that used to say F the NRA and now says ban assualt weapons (only changed because neighbors complained about the language, not the sentiment). We would be nieve to underestimate the current push for change.

    People are pissed off. Period. The NRA didn't help themselves by tying their fate with Trump either. That was epic stupid. This is going to be like 2010 all over again, but it will swing the other way this time.... until they think they have some sort of "mandate" and shoot themselves in the foot again.

    My prediction as far as this anti-gun movement goes: After the remaining scheduled protests on 4/20, it will peter out until some other nut job kills some more people. Then it will heat up again in October in time for the election. After the election, the new Democrat majority will vote in some stupid gun control, our president will sign it, then a bunch of them will lose seats in 2020 and more in 2022.

    Agree. Just heard someone claim a million people. No way. 100,000 probably, maybe even 200-300k, but not anywhere close to 1M. I was down there for the John Stewart and Glenn Beck Rallys a number of years ago and this is maybe on the order of those, which were pretty huge, but nowhere near 1M!

    The 4/20 date for their protest tells me a lot. That is Hitler's birthday. What better day for the new neo Nazi's to have a coming out party!

    4/20 is not only Pothead Day, but the anniversary of Columbine.
  • TeachTeach Senior Member Posts: 17,913 Senior Member

    4/20 was the only day I ever carried in school- - - -just after the Columbine shootings.  There was a pretty well-substantiated rumor of coordinated school attacks being planned on Hitler's birthday all over the country, and a few of the "Goth" students where I taught bought into it big time.  One of the kids in my class was actually arrested that day after he made some pretty specific threats about bombs being due to go off any minute.  Some of my students came to me stating that they were afraid of him, and I notified the campus cops.

    I do not take this movement lightly. I am starting to believe they will accomplish some of their goals.
    What scares me most is what will happen when it escalates to the next level? Hand grenades, pipe bombs or molotove cocktails through class room windows?  The far left is dancing in the streets, they have used these kids like never before

    I can't recall ever seeing a mass demand for the revocation of rights.

    There was way more people shown this evening than thismorning.

    I was riding my motorcycle in Crystal River, Florida today and there was an anti-gun protest going on, and I just happened to get stopped at a traffic light right across from these eh-holes. I gave the thumbs down sign and yelled at them to "buy more guns, buy more guns." I repeated it numerous times loud enough for most of them to hear, and then they started with one of their left-wing chants "Not one more, not one more" so I continued yelling at them to buy more guns. Finally the light turned, and I blasted them with my extremely loud exhaust system. :D :D :D

    When I started to type my comment I was immediately redirected to a anti gun news article!!! Hacked??? I had to go to my home page and work my way back. There were numerous counter protests today. I read this NYT's article. I'm sure they only reported it because some counter protesters were OMG "armed".

    That little fool Hogg is griping about the clear backpacks and I.D. cards the school is now requiring is infringing on his 1st Amendment rights of free speech while he's attacking the right of the people to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. He's more confused than a baby at a topless bar.

    That kid is something else. I glanced at a quote from him he other day saying that they need to use their "white privilege" to force change. Then there was some other comment he made saying that they (kids) needed to show us grownups how to vote (and I think there was an F-bomb dropped in there too).

    I am telling you... Occupy, BLM, MAGA, #metoo... and now this. Until they see a squirrel. People are too ignorant and lazy to make real change-- that would take sacrifice. Sure, things will swing back and forth, but nothing will deviate too far from the established norms.
  • earlyagainearlyagain Posts: 444 Member
    We want all of you law abiding people that have never done anything illegal in your whole lives, worked as loyal employees, sacraficed your youth in military service to our country, and shouldered the entire financial burden of supporting the country to give up your rights and accept your punishment for the brutal murders committed by people you don't even know. Enough is enough. No more freedom.

    My 17 YO daughter was grilling me about this last night. She wants to be safe at school and thinks this movement is a step in the right direction. She doesn't want guns banned, but thinks some new law could somehow prevent a school shooting. I asked the obvious questions, discussed unintended consequences, and pointed out the multiple failures perpetrated by government officials. She listened to me and gave some decent counterpoints. 

    Talk to your kids. Ask them what they think. This starts at home.

    Judging by the way conservatives are treated at left-wing rallies, going there unarmed is foolhardy.

    Not knowing your real situation as far as public education in your area goes, but it sounds like your daughter is getting a somewhat healthy dose of liberal brainwashing in the school system there, unfortunately. I hope she doesn't end up in one of those universities we all hear about, where talk of socialism is the norm.
