If there’s anything different about the post-Parkland call for gun control, it’s the very public lobbying efforts of teenage students who survived the massacre. Gun control advocates have placed the kids’ angry condemnation of pro gun rights politicians front and center in the media’s thinly veiled (if at all) support for civilian disarmament. The teen-flavored #enough campaign will culminate in a National School Walkout on March 14. My teenage daughter is . . .
happy to take a day off from school for any reason. But she’s going to class that day.
Yes, I’ll be “forcing” her to go; turning her back on her education in the name of restricting citizens’ civil rights is not an option.
If your brood includes a teenage child, does your support for freedom of speech include letting your kid bunk school to lobby for gun control?
