I spent the morning watching the March for Our Lives gun control rally coverage on various networks. CNN and MSNBC were fawning, to put it mildly. Fox was at least balanced. The WAPO was all about the march, again fawning over the ‘poor children’. This was an interesting statement in the article in the Washington Times-
Before the speeches began, people bundled up against the cold, sipping coffee and dusting off sugar from powdered donuts donated by DC Vote. Several toddlers were seen running through the park holding the nonprofit’s statehood protest signs. The city’s Board of Elections also set up a table to register voters, including 16-year-olds who will be eligible to vote in the 2020 election. Organizers set up a giant homemade clock with the city names of mass shootings instead of numbers, and an AR-15 instead of a hand.

Anti-gun, anti-NRA, anti-Republican. No mention of the Broward County Sheriff’s failures, the FBI’s failure, the failure to have the shooter committed… Nope, ALL anti-gun, all the time… They want ‘comprehensive gun legislation’ (not specified), a nationwide ban on AR rifles, erroneously calling them assault rifles. They also want to ban ‘high capacity’ magazines, whatever that is…
Those kids had some professional speech writers, and they must have rehearsed a LOT!!! And it’s becoming easier to see the puppet strings being pulled… And, IMHO, the kids are now pawns in a bigger game.
They brought people out of the woodwork from previous shootings, even from 9/11 to get up and spout their ‘agenda’.
$3.5 million ‘committed’ by various ‘organizations’ to ‘help’ with the marches, e.g. the puppet masters…
The anti-gunners have stolen a march on us with this one, astroturfing the hell out of the gun lobby. And congress approved the Fix-NICS act as part of the omnibus
bull, er bill.
AND they want people to register to vote, since they want the power to make those decisions others ‘won’t make’- Like banning guns and shutting down the NRA. The underlying message, at least to me, was vote democrat and vote often. At school, at home, etc.
Sadly, there was no discussion, at least that I heard, of the mental health issues, hardening the schools, etc. The teachers interviewed were ALL against arming teachers, saying it wasn’t their jobs. No counter interviews were on any network.
And these folks aren’t even being covered by the MSM…
So much for a real ‘discussion’ of the issues… Sigh…
