    Reminds me of the movies and photos we were shown during drivers ed classes in High School (late ‘60s). The idea being that the images would remind us how potentially deadly automobile accidents could be and that we needed to be attentive responsible drivers. Not saying I agree with what they are proposing.....just giving a somewhat similar perspective.

    I've seen pictures of defenseless people that have been shot.

    It's one of the reasons I carry.

    Photography and video are extremely powerful tools. The students are correct that it can change people's minds. Think about the horrific image of the naked girl burned by napalm in Viet Nam. I bet there are very few people in the United States who have not seen that image. It has stayed with me forever. I won't post the image here, but here's a link to an article with the photo.

    There is a fine line between presenting fact and spinning fact into propaganda. Those who wish to push an agenda are very well aware that controlling what the people see and hear (especially when they are young!) influences the beliefs and opinions of the whole of society.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    So, they were not even in school there at the time of the shooting but they feel entitled to lecture the world on what to do about it. Uh huh.

    That right there. I'm pretty sure the reason the New Zealand mosque video has been so suppressed is that people watching it will quickly realized how truly helpless unarmed victims are against people shooting them. That would quickly lead reasonable, pragmatic people to conclude that more gun restrictions won't make anyone except violent criminals any safer.

    They were not even born.


    The likelihood of a child being killed by a mass murderer in school is so infinitesimally small, they'd be better off buying a lottery ticket. Oh, wait, they're too young to buy lotto tickets.

    They are way more likely to die in a car crash. You don't see them protesting about cell phone use while driving.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Yes. It may not have the effect they intend, if it ever actually happens.

    I've seen a lot on the streets and in the alleys...I wish I hadn't watched the NZ video...anyone who DID watch it would have to reconsider an anti-gun attitude.
