Historically politicians have ignored the 18-25-year-olds because the kids never voted.

That changed when LBJ lied us into VIetnam, and once again kids are becoming "socially conscious" because THEIR lives are at stake.

Dems need to do everything they can to keep those kids angry and active. The NRAGOP policy has nothing to offer our kids but gruesome death and we cannot allow those new voters to forget.


Many of these kids and their older siblings and parents will vote this fall, maybe we have reached the tipping point for change.

The walk-outs have begun. Reports are over 3,000 schools will participate, and most of the protestors will be able to vote in 2020.

Going to be interesting to see how the NRAGOP reacts when their victims fight back.

The killings of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida may be the massacre that finally gets federal and state governments to enact common-sense gun control laws. That should have happened after Columbine. It should have happened after Virginia Tech. It should have happened after Sandy Hook. But it didn’t.

 

As a gun owner I support them, not the NRA, let the children lead the way.

It's well past time for social change with regard to guns.  Semi-automatic weapons, plastic guns, armour piercing bullets, just what every hunter needs.  The kids are far smarter and socially aware  than many seniors.
