If anyone exemplified the *ss backwards nature of the March for Our Lives it was Yolanda Renee King. Ms. King stood in front of the crowd in D.C. and told the assembled throng that, like her famous civil rights crusading grandfather, Martin Luther King Jr., she had a dream. Her dream . . .
“This should be a gun-free world. Period.”
From the mouths of babes…. Ms. King’s simple, not to say simplistic statement disabused the idea that the anti-gun Children’s Crusade was about outlawing any particular type of weapon.
Gun-free. Period. End of sentence. End of armed self-defense. The same armed self-defense that her grandfather sought to employ by applying for a concealed carry permit. Which he was denied. Which didn’t stop Dr. King from having guns hidden around his house.
As for disarming armed police officers, well, I guess little Ms. King and her audience figure they can deal with that later. Or not. ‘Cause someone’s got to catch the criminals who don’t disarm, right? Which would be anyone with a gun who isn’t a cop.
Make no mistake: Ms. King’s vision isn’t utopian. It’s dystopian. A nightmare world that Venezuelans are currently enjoying (amongst many other nations’ citizens). A future that looks exactly like the past that claimed the lives of my grandparents, Jews gassed by armed concentration camp guards.
What do you expect from a nine-year-old? A child who proceeded to lead the crowd in a feel good chant declaring “we’re going to be a great generation!”
Uh, no. No you’re not. Not if your aspiration is to deny Americans their natural, civil and constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. You’re going to be the generation that undermined and maybe even destroyed the liberty your forefathers lived and died to create and protect.
Idiots. All of them. From the youngest to the oldest.
