Increasingly students in the U.S. are speaking out against the ready availability of firearms.
Self-evidently, students are tired of being targets for bullets.
So here’s a few words of advice.
Do what we did in the 1960s and 1970s when we didn’t like what was going on. March, protest. March until your feet bleed. March.
Create a mass protest in Washington. March on the Capitol and the White House.
The presence of tens of thousands of fine young people protesting preventable death and the legislators who won’t do anything about it is bound to have an effect.
It might not change things immediately but keep up the protests and it does work over time.
If adults won’t protect their kids, maybe the kids should protect themselves.February 18, 2018 at 8:28 PM #745721
And vote like your life depended on it. Because it might.
Many of the young people I’ve seen coming forward are 17+ and could be eligible to vote in the November elections. This may well be the catalyst that brings them to the ballot box in large numbers. Numbers that are significant enough to make the difference in electoral districts that are close.February 18, 2018 at 10:03 PM #745731
Good luck with that one. Both Democrats and Republicans have been in power and have done little to control guns. Another demonstration in Washington will not change anything. Even if the Americans decided on tighter gun control, the number of weapons already in private hands is staggering. Canada has tight gun control regulations yet gun crimes are on the increase. Gun laws do little to control the illegal purchase of guns and most of these guns did not originate from the theft of registered guns.
