Second Amendment protests are sweeping the nation. Students are rising up in what they believe to be rebellion, walking out of school, holding signs at the capital, posting videos of their rage, and pleading for gun control with tears in their eyes. They base their arguments on ignorant emotion, and seem to be completely uninformed about guns and gun laws.
Applauded by culture, Leftist politicians, and celebrities, students are being handed scripts crafted by CNN to tug at the heartstrings of all empathetic Americans. They point to guns as the source of American problems, and to gun/NRA supporters as murderers.
Heralded by the Left as heroes, these students believe that they are rebelling against oppression, that they are brave, and that they are independent.
They are entirely wrong.
Their school walkouts aren’t walkouts they are approved by schools and given permission by authorities. Students are preaching a government-approved message in a government-approved environment. They are celebrating their conformity to government control, begging for their rights to be taken away, and obeying every whim of Leftist political mandate.
An Ohio high school student was suspended for NOT participating in the gun-protest school walkouts, proving an unconstitutional bias that permeates the public education system. The government has become the puppeteer of American students, conditioning them to think they are heroes for conforming to a socialist agenda.
“To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them.” – George Mason
Gun Control advocates are diving headlong into governmental enslavement under the guise of peace and safety. The government is feeding them an opinion that claims that the government should take rights away from the American people. Students, sanctioned by the state, are marching to demand less freedom from the state. The entire idea is backwards and illogical.
“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” –Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776
On March 20th 2018, an armed shooter entered a Maryland public high school. Maryland’s assault weapons ban, ten round magazine limit, gun free zone laws, laws against murder, laws against discharging a firearm in public, laws against minors owning guns, extensive gun control policies, and detailed background check requirements did nothing to stop the shooter. An armed security officer engaged to shooter within a minute of him opening fire on students and stopped him from mass violence. Laws and gun control did nothing to stop the evil intentions of a potential mass-murder; an armed American did.
On November 5th 2017, a shooter opened fire on a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. It is considered to be one of the deadliest American mass-shootings, claiming the lives of 26 people. The only reason that the casualties were not even higher was that an armed civilian outside of the church opened fire on the murder, who fled the scene and died in a high-speed car chase.
Leftist media ignores examples like the Maryland and Sutherland Springs shootings because it does not fit in with their agenda. The Left needs violent tragedies in order to play on emotions, and they have conditioned many American students to devour every fallacy they feed them. The media is exploiting these students as pawns in the war against the second amendment. The controversy is in full-swing and many Americans, students and adults alike, have been conditioned to be soldiers against constitutional liberty.
Brainwashed into Leftist ideology, these students and civilians are easily controlled and directed by the state. They are being used to force gun control into American policy so that the rest of America can be similarly controlled. The Republicans, Conservatives, and Absolute Patriots are a threat to ultimate Leftist power, and liberals are fully aware of this.
These conformity students are nothing more than tools in the hands of power-hungry Leftist leaders, believing that they are independent and courageous while complying to the whims of lying democrats. Political jargon would refer to these students as “Useful Idiots,” which is defined as “a person perceived as a propagandist for a cause the goals of which they are not fully aware, and who is used cynically by the leaders of the cause.”
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.” – Noah Webster
Historical American figures knew how important an armed population would be to maintaining true liberty.
It is why the Founding Fathers included the Second Amendment in the Constitution, and it is why publican education does not include extensive study on the Constitution. The government needs its students to be uneducated so that those very students can be used as political leverage against core American values.
