By the time you get this newsletter the March 14, 2018 student protests for gun control will be in the rear view mirror. For better or worse this will not be the last time children will be used by the Left to do the heavy lifting necessary to gut the Second Amendment. For this reason it is critical you understand what is really at stake if we continue to encourage our children to protest during school hours.
Too many of our schools in conjunction with Leftist groups like Women’s March Organization are whipping our kids into an emotional frenzy to encourage the students to walk outs of their schools. This MIGHT be OK if the students were first encouraged in the classroom to do research to determine if school gun violence is the greatest danger to their life and limb (more deaths due to texting and driving, etc.) and to identify ALL of the factors that contribute to school gun violence. At that point the students would be able to protest intelligently about the need to foster intact families, to decrease violent video game usage by children, etc., but, oh, no. No research. No choice; just a not so subtle pressure for the students to get out there and demand of the government a simple solution to school gun violence, when in reality it is a very complex problem.
If these protests are allowed to continue and flourish, the result will be more government gun control, radicalized students, chaos in the schools with less learning, but sadly, no decrease in school gun violence. So much harm for so little gain.
