For the last several weeks, we have witnessed the Parkland shooting survivors taking to the streets and the mainstream media to lecture Americans on the need for more gun control. Of course, thousands of people have fallen for these manipulative tactics as these fresh-faced “children” plead to the nation to give up their guns in the name of safety. While many people have seen through the lies of the left, there are those who are still held captivated by these heartfelt speeches made by teenage activists to strip Americans of their God-given rights.
For over a month, we have seen the smug faces of gun control student activists, and survivors of the horrific shooting, David Hogg, and Emma Gonzalez plastered all over the media blaming guns and demanding that politicians enforce stricter laws to stop future school shootings. Now, for many Americans, that very notion seems absurd but that has not stopped liberal politicians from trying to enact more gun control legislation based on the emotions of teenage activists.
- Gun control student activists Emma Gonzalez (left) and David Hogg (right) have been working tirelessly to strip Americans of their gun rights since the Parkland shooting.
Now, one of those anti-gun activists by the name of Emma Gonzalez has made a shocking admission concerning the Parkland shooting that blows their entire gun control narrative apart, and it could not have come at a better time.
The left knows that the majority of Americans would never give up their right to bear arms willingly, but they do know that if they there are enough tragedies some people may bend on the issue. As you know, over the last several years, there seems to be an increase in school shootings and the left who never lets a crisis go to waste has used these horrifying events to push more gun control on to the masses.
However, on the surface, it may seem to the untrained eye that guns are the common denominator in these tragedies, but there is another glaring detail being overlooked. The majority of these school shooters all happen to have been victims of incessant school bullying. Now, in no way does someone getting bullied justify their actions in murdering their classmates, but it certainly does give a glimpse into the mindset of a troubled individual. However, this past weekend, when thousands of teenagers swarmed the city streets of Washington D.C. demanding more gun control did they address that as a possible remedy to the gun violence epidemic?
No, they didn’t.
In fact, they did the exact opposite. Well, at least Emma Gonzalez did when she stated that not only did she and her classmates bully Nikolas Cruz in the past but they were justified in doing so.
Here is more from Louder with Crowder:
“Just because a student is bullied doesn’t mean that student is justified in shooting up a school.
Emma admitting she bullied the shooter is a tantamount admission the shooter, not the gun, is responsible for the shooting.
Yet Emma participated in a march against guns, suggesting it’s the guns that are the problem, not the individual who pulled the trigger.
Typically school shooters are young men, ostracized and bullied by their peers.
Perhaps Emma and her peers who ostracized the Parkland shooter since middle school should have a march against bullying.
Emma suggests no one was surprised the Parkland shooter turned out to be the shooter. She’s not alone, as it was also recommended by Scot Peterson (and others) the shooter be involuntarily committed.
Had the shooter been committed, it’s unlikely he’d have been able to purchase a gun for the shooting.
Those are the obvious points. Unfortunately, we’re living in stupid times, where obvious points aren’t obvious. Blaming a gun for someone’s actions is like Emma blaming her mechanical pencil for misusing the word “literally” in a school paper. Yet 200,000 or so dumbasses marched against the right to own guns. Which millions of law-abiding Americans, including myself, need for personal protection. Not to put too fine a point on it.
The Parkland shooting had less to do with guns and more to do with governmental failure and, now according to Emma, the continued bullying of an unstable young man. Again, bullying doesn’t excuse or justify shooting up a school. Okay? Okay. But I think less bullying of students is certainly better than “We bullied him and he deserved it.” Fair?
People are responsible for their actions. The tools are not.”
While these kids have lived through a horror, no one should ever have to face they are missing who is to blame. Nikolas Cruz is the person who walked into the school and murdered people with a gun, but that does not mean banning guns would have stopped him from doing so. The problem is not the weapon, but the matter of the heart and until that is addressed these crimes will only continue and no matter how many laws are on the books will stop that.
