“As Javon Davies reads out a list of his most prized possessions, it’s hard not to smile: His Playstation, his video games, his TV, his cat. It’s typical sixth grade stuff through and through,” cnn.com reports. “But the reason he made the list is heartbreaking . . .
It’s actually a makeshift will, one the Birmingham, Alabama middle schooler created just in case he is killed in a school shooting.
“[I made it] just in case something happened to one of us,” Javon told CNN affiliate WIAT. “Some kids, they get rowdy and might end up getting somebody shot or something.”
The story is your typical anti-gun rights heart-tugger. We have to enact gun control laws for the children!
Come tomorrow there will be a media feeding frenzy. The media will be suffused with soundbites from angry students demanding that the government take away its citizens’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Crap like this:
Well, The People of the Gun have children too. And they’re not writing wills.
They’re learning that their schools are left defenseless thanks to teachers, parents and politicians without an ounce of common sense. That they should run and ambush if a school shooter shows up.
They’re learning how to keep, bear and yes, shoot arms responsibly and effectively. They’re getting ready to use firearms for their own safety. And the safety of their friends, families, neighbors, community and country.
When will our pro-gun rights children get the respect that these deeply misguided gun control children protestors are getting?
