Louie, Just trying to have some fun and push some buttons, as many people do. We live in such a emotionally unstable world where a simple word can cause someone to be so offended that they need to put together a rally or march. Maybe I pushed it too far, but to me, it was all in good fun. The gun-control debate is so extreme there are people providing arguments that make zero sense and show there has been no research on their parts. They should sit back and read, not put their illogical senseless rhetoric out there.

You are getting really good at copy and paste... you might actually figure out that the buttons on a keyboard can create your own words! Technically a bayonet is an military assault weapon. Are you going to say we can't own knives next? What is sold to civilians and what is military grade are two different thing.
Our government would never melt down firearms that they could sell to 3rd world countries to bolster our interest in their region. So as much as you want picinic tables for Yogi and Booboo, that will never happen.
As for arming teachers, many already have and are currently in possession of concealed weapons permits. We wouldn't want teachers with mentalities like your to be in possession of a firearm because they would probably shoot themselves accidentally. However, allowing teachers who are comfortable with firearms the ability to have them on school property eliminates a "gun-free" zone that screams that a criminal who is armed has nothing to worry about.
Your post sounds like a 2 year old who swears there is a monster in the closet, even though they have never seen one. Quit letting your fear of a firearm try to trample on my rights to own a firearm.

Said the guy who has never touched a firearm, let alone fired one. The closest you have been to a firearm is walking through the sporting goods section of a Walmart. You post oozes of ignorance. Go join the ignorant politicians in California. Maybe with you, the state can become their own independent nation. Maybe we should make Ignorant retorts to a debate that you have done zero research to back up a Felony. Please do not breed.

No I did not. We told her that if she wanted to attend it was her decision but she needed to educate herself and not do it because a bunch of her friends were doing it. I have no problem with my children having their own ideas. I just want them to have full knowledge of what they are supporting.

Are they really standing up for a cause, or just using it for a reason to get out of class for the day? I would be willing to bet 10% know the full meaning behind what they are doing, the other 90% are screaming "Cool, we get out of class and get to go chill at the park with our friends without getting in to trouble".

Actually Aaron, it is a pretty viable argument that simply show that you know absolutely 0 about what you are trying to argue. If you spend more time playing games on your phone, tablet or computer than you do to research a topic that you are so passionately trying to debate, then maybe you shouldn't be in the argument. Let CNN or MSNBC or FoxNews do the debating for you, at least they are trying to put fact based arguments together.

Is that not what the snowflakes are pushing? Ban something they know absolutely nothing about based on media fed ignorance. Restrict their abilities as young adults, because age has everything to do with knowledge of a firearm and the safety related to it. What does AR stand for Jim? Can you answer without looking it up on google, which you are probably going to do before replying because you are clueless. Ban Assault Rifles, because AR stands for Assault rifle. Do you also believe than an AR can shoot 100 round per second?

Unfortunately Aaron, I am not like you. My children have their own minds and I encourage them to use them. They can do their own research and form what ever opinion they want. We can debate topics like this and at the end of the day, if they do not feel the same way I do, I am fine with it. You must have had an upbringing similar to what you described. Did daddy take you to the woodshed or his secret meeting spot when you were a teenager to ensure you felt they way he did?

I asked my 15 year old if she was going to participate in this walkout. She said that there was a bunch of peer pressure to participate and that most of the kids in her circle were participating. I then asked if she knew what it was all about. She said that her understanding was to make a national acknowledgement of the 17 children that were killed in Florida.
I in turn asked her what she heard about gun-control and the association with it. She said, not really. So I in turn took about 15 minutes as her parent to educate her about the 2nd amendment, what it provides us as Americans, and what the differences between Fully Automatic and semi-automatic firearms are. Then asked her how she felt about creating laws that required citizens to forfeit the rights and their firearms based on the actions of a few evil people in this world. Her response was no way.
Do not let our government, politicians, and media turn our children into sheep. Educate them, teach them to use their brains and research something prior to following the herd. I will support my children's thoughts and ideas as long as they are educated and fact based, not something they heard based on a masked report from a media outlet or an uneducated friend.
