Students, Guns and Political Pawns
After the school shooting tragedy in Parkland Florida, many are calling for change. Change to less guns on the street and zero guns at schools.
I would like to concentrate on people and groups using last week’s tragedy to advance their cause on the dead and alive bodies of these young children. Some would say using this children as political pawns in their deadly game.
The most howls have come from the hate Trump campaign, led by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post and almost all of the rest of the media. You can add to that list the Democratic Party.
Back to the gun debate. Although I understand President Trump’s frustration with the media when it comes to the Russian collusion “investigation” since they have already found him guilty on zero evidence I do believe that he should just stay out of it and let his press people deal with the statements about the investigation that has so far gone nowhere.
How about we look at the people and groups who are using these children both dead and alive for advancing their agenda.
We now find out that these groups are using this tragedy and the High School children to pressure legislators to pass more gun control policies. A group called Change.org has created a petition, "Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won't," which calls on state and federal representatives to pass "comprehensive and responsible gun control policy." This petition has accumulated, they say, more than 50,000 signatures and they say it is growing.
This petition started right here in southwest Michigan at Kalamazoo Central High School.
In the petition they say:
Adults have failed us…Everyday, we students walk into school with the promise of an education without threat of violence. However, it has become increasingly clear that hallways of schools across America are no longer a guaranteed safe haven.
These young teenagers and children have no idea the complexity of what they are fighting for, so I ask why are these politicians, people and groups using these young teenagers and children as political pawns.
President Trump, by his tweet, is not using these children as political pawns in my estimation. I do believe the “adults” via the politician and groups are using these children, both dead and alive, as political pawns. There is no comparison when it comes to President Trump’s tweet. Although I do believe the President should not have tweeted anything about the FBI colossal failures which might have stopped this tragedy.
Do these children and teenagers really believe by having their schools become gun free zones that will stop or greatly curtail these shootings?
Do these children and teenagers really believe that these mentally ill or evil people will not come to their schools because of the sign that states they are a gun free zone?
By advertising to the world of the nuts and evil people, they are informing them, if you come to our gun free zone school you will meet zero deadly force to your evil deeds.
Of course they do not, but the media, politicians, people and groups do understand that this will stop nothing so why are these groups putting these children and young teenagers in so much danger?
Is it really just to push their end game of their fantasy of ridding our country of guns.
