I've listened to countless interviews of these young people and so far, no one has anything new or legal to offer. I heard several high school students demand background checks even though we already have background checks. Why in the world did they not already know this?
Some mentioned that it should be illegal to buy a gun for someone else. Wow! How exactly would this be managed? It’s already regulated to where the person in possession of a gun should be registered to own the gun but there’s little teeth in the requirement. But how many mass murders took place where the gunman was gifted the weapons used to commit the crimes? The fact is, people who are sick enough to commit mas murder don't care about gun laws...why would they, it makes NO sense. These young people don't seem to grasp this.
Several young people interviewed didn’t know what an assault rifle was. At the very least they could’ve said it rapid fired like a machine gun, but they were absolutely clueless, this after telling the interviewer they should be outlawed. In my opinion many of the people attending the marches and rallies were there for the adventure of it and not to make changes because they didn’t understand what the changes would entail.
These kids don't realize that they've got a much higher chance of being killed by taking drugs and/or driving under the influence. They are much more at risk if they place themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time because of hanging around the wrong people.
I'm glad they feel they're making a difference, but they need to understand the big picture...the real world of why the 2nd Amendment is in the Constitution in the first place. The problem is they won't receive this honest insight because liberals have their ears as they always do with young people. It's not until they get into the real world that they tend to switch to the Republican Party. Don't you find this interesting that when they become adults many switch, yet young Republicans tend to stay Republican? It would make for an informative book if it hasn’t already been written.
