    Respectfully being from Texas. Texas had the first mass shooting in U.S. history at the University of Texas. He used a long rifle with a scope. The police only had pistols and shotguns. The students ran to their dorms and grabbed all the hunting rifles they had and began firing back at the shooter and pinned him down. It was the students that gave the police hunting rifles. It was the students that stopped that killer. I don't know how to stop all these school shootings. They are horrible. But I've just given an example of 18, 19 , 20 year olds fighting for their lives. What are we supposed to do? Give up our guns? A murderer does not care if it is legal or not to have a gun.

    They may have ideas of actions in their heads, but I learned a long time ago that anything worth while costs money to get done. Just where are these kids getting money to have a convoy of charter buses to haul them up to Washington? And this Jabroni that CBS hired to take Letterman's place thinks he is funny. He could't shine Letterman's sneakers.

    No one seems to care that rifle homicides make up some approx 500 of the 15k gun homicides per year. Guess it's not all about hard data and intellectualism.

    "Okay Kathy, remember, we have a march against the NRA on Friday."
    "Oh, great! What should my sign say?"
    "How about making a sign that says the evil NRA doesn't care about dead children?"
    "Oh great idea, I will start making that sign now."
    "Don't forget, we have another march on Saturday."
    "Oops, I had forgotten that. Tell me again, what are we marching for on Saturday?"

    absolutely right stephen, good for these kids. and yeah, there is almost no public high school (US) that doesn't have at least one shooter lock down drill. it is very very normal, too normal. I mean I even had one sophomore year of high school, there was a shooter outside our high school so we were in lock down for 3 hours and I was locked in the classroom. we had the shooter alarm go off, and absolute panic while we ran into classrooms. it is a normal part of high school experience, seriously. sensible gun reform is much needed, he was a teenager and a gang member, way too easy to get a firearm, must be stricter. non negotiable.

    "To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws."
    –John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States 475 (1787-1788)

    "Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American…[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people."

    "Whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them; nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it."
    –Richard Henry Lee, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    "Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?"

    "Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms … The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard, against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible."

    I like how they say kids can be smart, and know how the Government works, but they completely make a mockery of it, by playing the blame game by saying Trump, Rubio, NRA, and responsible gun owners are killing these kids for $1.05, and don't do anything to create better ways to keep guns out of criminals and mentally ill people, but just want to take away guns from responsible gun owners, don't take any opportunity to do something out of stubborness, and mix between 2 different contradicting ways we can treat them(Child or Adult), but are really just 17 year olds, acting like 6 year olds, who demand respect like adults.

    obviamente no todos los adolescentes son unos idiotas millennials egocéntricos y materialistas y totalmente separados de la realidad viviendo com pendejos creyendo que la vida es high school musical
    no hay que generalizar cuando se está estereotipando a la gente eso se entiende
    pero si vamos a tener que hablar en post de que un grupo se representa según como se porta la mayoria (como cuando se elige un presidente por ejemplo ) lamentablemente y eso que yo naci en 1997 somos la peor generación que ahí
    la mayoría de los jóvenes de hoy en dia viven a través de un chip de celular como si fuera el centro de su vida sintiéndose los amos de la razón y todos eso en redes sociales y todos eso (cuando en realidad no saben lo que es la vida ni saben lo que hacen ni las repercusiones)
    lamentablemente la minoria de adolescentes que no son asi sufren por que tiene que luchar contra la corriente
    pero el quiere puede y si se lucha lo suficiente se gana
    es solo mi opinion obvio cualquier puede tener la suya

    Apparently everyone needs to be in a situation where a person with a gun start shooting and everyone is running for their lives. And then start protesting and start a movement. Because that would be the only way for people to believe they aren't actors.

    Let's get this straight.

    I like guns. But do I think US citizens need military-style rifles?
    How about a big resounding NO.

    The Second Amendment is a provision for citizens of the United States to organise a militia to maintain the safety of the states. The members under this militia are the ones that have the right to bear arms. Militia are organised to support regular armies during national emergencies, such as invasions.

    The Russians invading the USA (hypothetically) is a national emergency. A burglar breaking in your house (why gun nuts buy military-style weapons for, AKA "home defence") is not.

    The meaning of the amendment was hijacked and bent somewhen in the '60s and '70s by post-Cincinnati NRA. Is this normal? No.

    In the UK, carrying even a kitchen knife is grounds for an arrest.

    In Japan you have to go through stringent background checks for mental and criminal record, and you are only allowed either hunting shotgun or semi-automatic handgun.

    In Malaysia you have to pass through the same tests as well, but have to wait longer for a licence, only handguns are allowed, and you can only fire the guns at a shooting range under heavy police supervision.

    These countries have way fewer gun violence combined, compared to the sick weekly routine in the US.

    How did the US not get it right?

    Politicians need to stop thinking about how some extremists out there would hate them if they put restrictions on the second amendment. So from me to them here's what I have to say , Listen up here knuckleheads yall better put on your big boy pants and screw your heads on correctly. At the very least act like there is something inside that huge head of yours. Because, and I know you don't care what kids say nor understand how human emotions work, we are tired of living in fear that we could die from being shot at school by some upset psychopath. You need to realize that just because it doesn't affect you doesn't mean it's not important. No one cares if a few idiots are mad at you for restrictions on their gun usage. You are in a position to do what's right, so do it.

    Why do people STILL support the "right" to own a gun? America is the land of innovation in quite a few areas, but as far as this whole thing goes, you can take example from this side of the pond! Do you even realise that gun crime figures are WAY lower in Europe because gun ownership is illegal? Yes, guns are like drugs; you'll always find a way to buy one. But, when the legal way is non existent, obtaining guns is way harder!

    Gun control = Deprivation of rights under color of law like the red flag law.

    Why gun control is unconstitutional? Case law Marbury V Madison

    Gun control is unconstitutional the supremacy clause of the constitution and Marbury V Madison Seem to make clear that if a law is in open violation to the constitution, That law is Null and Void. The law cannot be in conflict with itself. Any law ordinance or amendment that violates the U.S. Constitution is null and void. An unjust law is no law.

    Those who give up their freedoms for security deserve neither ~ Benjamin Franklin

    None are more enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free ~ Goethe

    ATF = Color of law = No law!
