If you were to strictly watch cable or network news, you’d believe the world is on fire. You'd believe that Mueller was this close to busting Trump. That the world is literally on fire due to Global Warming. And you'd believe every kid in America supports gun control legislation
However, reality is an entirely different story. According to a USA Today poll, of over 600 middle and high school students surveyed, 47% said they believe tightening gun laws and background checks would prevent mass shootings, while 37% disagreed. Of over 500 18-24 year olds surveyed, 54% were confident that tightened gun control measures would prevent mass shootings, while 33% disagreed.
Obviously, the advantage still swings to the ridiculous Leftist notion that more gun control means safer schools and places. However, watching cable or network news featuring the borderline (or actual) communists David Hogg (who made a gesture similar to a Nazi salute) and Emma Gonzalez (who wore a Cuban flag patch on her jacket), and watching everyone else speaking at the ironic March for our Lives event (I’ll explain why it’s ironic momentarily), you’d think that they represent a vast majority of people around their age. And while most do agree with the overall message of more gun control, not nearly as many actually do.
And no doubt, that’s something that infuriates the Left.
But that’s not all. There’s something else, something a bit more important, to be discussed here.
According to USA Today: “Seven in 10 say schools should be required to have an armed police officer on site. Six in 10 say schools should be required to have metal detectors at the door; more than two-thirds of those under 18 felt that way.”
I’m sure you can tell why that infuriates the Left, perhaps even more than the previous statistic. First, this shows that 70% of the students surveyed AGREE with Trump and CONSERVATIVES about having armed security on campus. Second, this shows that 60% want “metal detectors at the door”. Do you know what one of the biggest arguments made by the Left against this proposal is? That the school would essentially be turned into a prison or it would at least feel like a prison.
To which I say: when was the last time someone went INTO a prison and shot it up? Besides, school already feels like prison anyway for students. What’s a little added security that would actually KEEP STUDENTS SAFE?
Third, and perhaps most importantly, this shows that most students want MORE guns on campus, so long as they’re in the hands of hired and trained security whose very living depends on protecting students from potential or actual danger. In other words, these students want a GOOD GUY WITH A GUN on campus!
And if the Left hasn’t exploded in rage like the Krakatoa, they surely should by this point. That very statistic demonstrates the support of the very OPPOSITE of what the Left wants. The Left doesn’t want good guys to have guns. They want to be the only ones with the guns. Because that means they’re the only ones with all the power.
The Left doesn’t honestly care about people; they only care about themselves. The thing about school shootings, or shootings in general, is that they bring about benefits to the Left. They get an opportunity to spout nonsense about how dangerous guns are and that we need more gun control at the expense of people they don’t really care about.
They get an opportunity to indoctrinate people (particularly young people) and lie to them about who’s responsible for this. They never blame the individual. No, they blame every other registered gun owner who hasn’t broken the law. They blame an organization that protects people’s rights to the 2nd Amendment when they had nothing to do with any shootings at all.
I didn’t care to watch the March for our Lives event. But I did see some things on Twitter. Some signs blaming the NRA and have heard chants asking the NRA how many people they killed that day. Zero would be the actual number, not that any of them care or, for some, believe.
Heck, some of them think the NRA actually SELLS guns, so it’s not far-fetched for some or most of them to believe the NRA is actually responsible for the deaths of people on a daily basis.
But while the NRA’s numbers are zero, let me tell you of an organization that kills 900 people every single day, according to an annual report from 2015-16.
That organization is Planned Parenthood. No surprise there, really. And that’s why I called the March for our Lives event “ironic”. These kids march against an organization that isn’t responsible for a single death, but utterly ignore or even support an organization that kills children on a daily basis.
For every child that these indoctrinated sheep believe were killed by the NRA, a million more were actually killed by PP. According to a website called numberofabortions.com, over 60 million children have been killed since 1973, the year abortion became legal. That’s roughly 60 million more children than the NRA has killed.
That’s roughly 10 times more people who have been killed via abortion than Jews were killed during the Holocaust. That’s 10 million more people than what historians estimate Joseph Stalin killed during his reign over the Soviet Union.
Now, Planned Parenthood isn’t responsible for every single one of those abortions. And abortions occurred even before Roe v. Wade, though they were illegal. But one interesting tid bit of information for you to know (if you don’t already know) is that Planned Parenthood is not a relatively new organization. Far from it. According to Wikipedia, the organization was formed in 1916. OVER 100 YEARS AGO!
Now, I doubt they would perform abortions (or at least, they wouldn’t report it, since it would’ve been illegal at the time) before 1973. But the organization has been around for a very long time, so it’s not a far-fetched idea that, while maybe not every single one of those 60 million plus abortions were their doing, that a good percentage of them are.
If you want to find a real child-killing organization, don’t look at the NRA, because they don’t kill people. Rather, look at Planned Parenthood. They will gleefully kill your (and their own) children and celebrate it in massive events.
Regardless, that’s really getting off topic. While I believe all of that was necessary to mention, I’ll return to the main point of the article. Given those statistics by USA Today of all places, we can see that the Left’s efforts to indoctrinate our children aren’t working as much as they would hope. If they could have their way, they would have the number of children who believe in gun control to be at 100%. And while the majority has been successfully brainwashed to not believe in facts, there’s a very surprising amount of middle and high school-aged people that refuse to believe the Left’s lies, even going as far as to believe that a good guy with a gun would be a good and safe option for them.
So that’s something to celebrate, if nothing else. It gives you some realistic hope that, while the future will likely be plagued by open-communists, there will be a decent amount of people who will fight back against that communism.
And yes, I know that that poll only talks about gun control measures and armed security on campus, but they’re indicative of potential conservatism for the future. If they’re unwilling to believe the Left when it comes to this, surely they’d be unwilling to believe the Left in other matters, even if at the moment, they are a bit liberal-leaning in those other matters.
Heck, even I used to be a good deal more liberal when I was in high school compared to now.
