I spend a fair amount of time cruising YouTube on your behalf, looking for firearms-related video content. When I search “gun violence” I often come across school projects like this one. And hoo-boy, it’s a doozy.
“Guns are being issued like food stamps” Dania Mcdonald [sic] announces. And then shows a chart comparing American firearms-related homicides to those in Mexico, Columbia and Swaziland. Wait. Canada, Australia and the U.K. My bad.
Actually, her bad. This kind of anti-gun agitprop — “there are too many guns held by people legally and illegally” and guns should be restricted to “governmental workers” — belongs on The Trace not a schoolroom powerpoint presentation.
Needless to say, the Second Amendment doesn’t get a look in.
Ms. Mcdonald’s solution? Gun owners should sign a contract with the government promising not to use firearms except for self-defense. If it’s not used for self-defense, kill them! Seriously. That’s what she says.
I wonder what grade she got for this? If I’d presented something like that in my high school, I would have received an A. True story. I went to a Quaker School. And I was pro-gun control.
But I saw the light. So Ms. Mcdonald isn’t a lost cause. Is she?
