This morning the local news was talking about HS students here in Michigan having a "town hall" meeting on guns. They made it clear that "no Republicans accepted the invitation to participate". Seeing some of the ambush tactics at the CNN "town hall" meeting, is it any wonder. These things have become events to harass and bully the opposition. I have serious doubts that all of this has sprung up in a grass roots manner among HS students. They are pawns on a much bigger playing field. On the bus, there is virtually no mention of this event. The kids I see are as detached from current events as ever.
If the left wants to ban all guns on the chance that one of the 300 million firearms in the country might be used in a crime, why don't they support deporting all illegal aliens on the same premise?#FloridaSchoolShooting
Wayne LaPierre and the @NRA leadership can attack me all day long. I'm not worried about that. But for them to dodge responsibility and try to shift the blame to the FBI and law enforcement is sick. This country would be a lot safer without the influence of Wayne LaPierre.
So much posturing against the NRA by idiot propagandists and blatant sensationalists.
One would think they'd have a good case for slander. They're literally suggesting that the organization and their reps are responsible for murder. Insane.
Dana Loesche, Colion Noire, Grant Stinchfield, and Wayne LaPierre have done well to stand their ground over the collective insanity. They cannot back down to these masses of bullies and insidious A-holes.
Dana especially, is again being skewered by the media. So much for standing up for women. If a women cares for their rights instead of abortion (A.K.A. controlling the body) they're demonized like they're an accessory to murder. It's so bad.
The media is polarizing people to the point that more are going to be radicalized...while they call you and me extremists. Yeah...right.
The voices of reason are being drown out by the socialists and communists calling themselves "progressives."

My Dad was a fireman before days of decent equipment and ran into structures on fire to save lives. He never sat in the fire truck and watched as people burned to death! But @Delta and @enterprisecares and other corporations blame NRA? Explain!
Many police officers were surprised to find that not only the armed school resource officer but 3 other Broward County sheriff’s deputies were outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the shooting crisis and hadn’t entered, sources tell CNN.
The Broward Co. Sheriff, in front of a nationwide audience on CNN, lectured the NRA and millions of law abiding gun owners when all along it was his department that did nothing after 39 calls, multiple threats, and failed to fully engage the shooter.
Our courts have said that police have no obligation to protect citizens. Here you see it in action. I prefer not to pass judgement on these individuals, but it's important to recognize that most people have an inherent desire to not be killed. An armed teacher in a class room will also not want to be killed. Locking down the class room still makes a lot of sense. I am convinced though, that if the bad guy forces his way into a class room, the armed teacher has a vested interest in taking out the bad guy. He/she has skin in the game. The police did not have skin in the game. It's often said that when seconds matter, the police are minutes away. Here the police were seconds away, but waited minutes anyway. As a result, they want to further restrict our natural right to defend ourselves. This simply defies logic.
I want to applaud companies like @MetLife, @United, @Delta, @Hertz, @TrueCar, @Avis, @Symantec, @BestWestern, @SimpliSafe, @Wyndham, @FNBOmaha, @Chubb and @Enterprise for cutting ties with the leadership of the @NRA. #BoycottNRA
These companies aren't cutting ties w @NRA "leadership" you jackass, they're cutting ties w the millions of @NRA *members,* regular Americans, vets, women, everyone who values the Constitution & our right to bear arms. Nice try tho! https://twitter.com/NYCMayor/status/96751480402080 1542
We don't need gun control. We need people to pay attention and do something when a known whacko has weapons and on multiple occasions voiced his idea to use them. Why wasn't the idiot at least Baker Acted and put in a rubber room for a while?
If he could not get guns, he would have used a knife, or some other weapon, possibly far more deadly than what he did.
We also need sheep dogs in the populace for in case stuff like this happens. Armed sheep dogs with the sole purpose and dedication to PROTECT the innocent.
Is it the police's sworn duty to SERVE AND PROTECT, or to SERVE and DO SOMETHING IF IT DOESN'T ENDANGER ME and it isn't too much of a BOTHER?
Finally, the list grows of companies I will never do business with again.
