Of all the people who are taking a stand, it appears the students, and more specifically the student survivors are the ones leading it.
Well done to Cameron Kasky for taking on Rubio and shaming him. How he can stand there and say he is for keeping schools safe whilst accepting funds by the NRA is a complete paradox. One which shows where his interests truly lie, and it ain’t with the victims of the shootings.
America is one helluva mess.
And L.A. shootings, these school shootings will keep coming because they are enabled by those in power.
But the 2nd amendment you say…take the amendment and shove it where the Sun don’t shine. Or better still, rewrite it. Isn’t that why it is called an Amendment!?
Self defence is such a non-argument. Australia’s legislative law changes after the 1996 mass shooting in Port Arthur and the subsequent data that proves that gun control works seems to be overlooked by many American politicians.
But the problem is, too many of the old leaders in power are so easily swayed by their own legitimised sense of greed. Astonishingly, the scenes of a school shooting and dead children becomes forgettable to them.
And then Trump, with what I would call such a numbing sense of unsurprising audacity proposes the idea of equipping teachers with guns, and forcing the initiative to fund it despite little evidence to back it up.
Turning schools into anticipatory war zones.
It’s like banging your head against a brick wall.
A change has got to come. Students are sick and tired of it, and so they are taking a stand. Anyone who truly wants USA to be safer should join them.
