    ...their first day back since organizing one of the largest youth-led protests in US history.


    Youth-led?


    One suspects that this protest was tightly, completely, and forcefully organized by a shadowy collection of anti-American, anti-Second Amendment of opportunistic, mendacious, and predatory political bullies.

    They thought they had their winning hand with the fourteen Newtown families that Obama was flying around the country on Air Force One back in 2013. They have gotten fresh cards with this one.

    I still don't know one person who is willing to trade their firearms for a promise of safety from Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders.

    Not me....I'd rather be a felon than to rely on those idiots.

    Of course not, they've never learned the concept of "no", they've been told that they are deserving, entitled, and special, and through "winning" participation trophies & ribbons, have never learned how to lose gracefully.

    No, they aren't trying to take our guns. They are leaving that part to whomever. They simply want the laws passed making it so.

    And this is what happens when you demand the government take away some of your rights. Ask and you shall receive.
