Ring the bell! School’s In! For those of you who think I’ve lost my mind, I’m going to explain my thoughts on the movement of the kids in this national discussion about gun rights as pertaining to human rights.
I’m including a couple videos here that pretty well sums up my philosophy. I believe the right to defend oneself is ordained by God. Even a good dog has the right to bite. When a nut comes into a school to shoot the cheerleaders you have to have a plan “B!” That’s not debatable. When you’re hiding under a desk while some degenerate is killing your friends you won’t be worried about that comma in the second amendment, you’ll be worried about your ass!
The kids in the March For Our Lives movement have heard the “pops,” and are trying to get their minds around the sound. The country is polarized. The far right wants to give free AR15s to everyone, and the far left wants the cops to kick in every door to take all the guns and melt them down. Unfortunately, most of us are somewhere in between.
Are the kids being “managed?” Why hell yeah! Remember, these ARE kids. Six weeks ago they were looking forward to Easter Break, and now they are the guests of Bill Mahr. That’s pretty heady stuff. The left, with its agenda, is still smoking the glass pipe, hoping to rebuild America in their Utopian vision of galloping unicorns and a perfect society. It is our job, as conservatives, to at least have dialogue with the boys and girls without coming at them like the Hell’s Angels.
The kids are alright. No matter how the Main Stream Media spins it, the founders of this movement were ducking bullets a few weeks ago. We need to keep them informed. The same teachers who are cheering them on did NOT teach them about the constitution. We need to pick up that job.
We have been debating the second amendment for decades. This next generation will be debating it in the light of a generation that grew up in the shadow of school shootings. They really believe that one, it is possible to rid America of all guns, and two, that will end all violence and murder. You and I know that is all nonsense. There are bad men out there, and the whores ain’t ladies!
When I saw the crowds on Saturday I took notice. The anti-gun lobby now has a powerful tool. The words, the visualization, and the public sentiment were all perfect. In contrast the MOAR (Mother Of All Rallies) last year was an abject failure. We looked like fools! That’s why myself, and so many others distanced ourselves from the so-called “Patriot” movement. And it’s not just the numbers. Remember the “Women’s March?” Clogged up the streets of Austin. All hat, and no cattle. And the hats were vagina hats. The gay community invited itself to the March and then THEY looked like fools. There is a vast difference between some old fat chick standing there with a twat on her head, and Emma González reciting the names of the dead with tears streaming down her young cheeks.
We must address gun violence in America. We must address mental illness. We must address radical views on the left, AND the right. We must address the evolution of our public schools from education to indoctrination, and we must apply common sense! I’m not giving my Colt Peacemaker up. Been my closest friend too many times, and I don’t live in a Yellow Submarine. I live in TEXAS! We need to speak to these kids reasonably, and not just recite sound bites or quote talking points. I joined their groups. They received me with open arms, and in spite of who I am, and what I represent, they LISTENED, but you know what, I listened TOO!
