We interrupt your national, media-sponsored cryfest for a brief and simple lecture. No notes needed, I’ll provide.
Over the weekend, one of your comrades, Emma Gonzalez, admitted to “ostracizing” the Parkland shooter. As early as middle school. In an event where you, her, and all your other weepy, whining cohorts marched against the Second Amendment rights of Americans who had nothing to do with the events in Parkland. Not only did Emma admit to ostracizing the shooter, she wasn’t sorry for it. An interesting development considering how the young man “turned out.”
Meanwhile, all of you students-turned-activists are blaming the NRA, legal gun-owners, and in some cases Marco Rubio for what happened in Parkland.
Do you see where I’m going with this?
Lemme break it down for you:
If you’ve admitted, as Emma has, that you ostracized the shooter as early as middle school, you’ve admitted a person, not the tool used, is responsible for the shooting. Specifically a person you made to feel excluded (more on this later).
If a person is responsible for his actions, as the shooter is, then a group of opportunistic anti-gun shills actively campaigning against a group which had no involvement in the shooting (the NRA), is irresponsible at best, malicious at worse. Some might say you’re engaging in bullying tactics.
Seems to me if anyone played a role in the shooter’s motive, if anyone contributed to the shooter’s actions, neither Marco Rubio or the NRA is to blame.
