The irrational emotionalism of some of these students proves the point about them not being ready to vote, sign contracts, or have guns until much older. The obnoxious effrontery of some twit accusing Rubio of being like the shooter shows the criminal extremism these hyperventilating bullies are being influenced and directed by such as CNN and the rest of the radical Leftist media and press. The dead and injured victims are being forgotten because of the shrill idiocy coming from these very poor representatives, whose travel, room and board and video games are paid by Leftist extremists.

If these twits are responsible enough to represent Leftist politic, then they are responsible enough to be arrested for criminal slander. These bullies don't know civility, nor fairness. Bowing to these shrieking bullies is impossible. They are mentally ill and may have been the bullies affecting the demented murderer's feelings of betrayal and isolation. Yes, the bullying mentality exhibited by these mentally challenged people very likely is dripping with the blood of innocents... but not the innocent aborted babies they haven't and won't defend. Leftists never hear the hypocrisy as they strut around speaking of innocent lives and paying no mind to the millions dead with which they littered our country.

Don't take this crap from these manipulated little tantrum throwers... take their adult rights away, as they don't deserve them, nor respect them.

The students who are asking for limits to gun laws are more articulate, better disciplined and less prone to tantrums than the person in the Oval Office posing as a president.

At this point, Iíd be much more comfortable with any one of them taking Trumpís place and sending Trump to one of his estates to enjoy a nice long retirement.

Yes, I realize that the POTUS must be 36.

It is just an unrealistic fantasy just as wishing that the NRA would grow a heart and go back to being the organization that focused on responsible gun ownership and safety.

Overall, students are testing the waters of the adult world or looking for an excuse to party. They have not had enough experience in the real world to know what they want. All they know is rinky-dink public school popularity contests.

The first thing they NEED to understand is that the adult world isn't very adult and that for the most part, criminals are running things. Then they need to decide on whether to hide in the shadows, make allies with a faction or attempt to organize.

...most will just make babies and hide. This whole circus is just the final conclusion of their denial...but go ahead and speak into the mike if it makes you feel like you're in control.

Trump wants to arm teachers to make America's schools safer, but that is only a half-measure. Following that logic (or lack thereof) American schools can be made EVEN SAFER safer by arming the children, too!

And what about America's vulnerable pets?

Those kids have just went through a traumatic experience, it is not the time for this, they need time to grieve and some need professional help, why put them in front of the cameras now?
Wolf since you're such a smart and caring human you should know this, but I guess your hate "Trumps" all common sense.

The NRA is now a lobby for gun manufacturers and distributors.

Safety isnít itís primary function.

If it was, theyíd be concerned about making sure every weapon passed the highest quality testing available.

ThUs, they probably would not have an issue with getting rid of aftermarket accessories. Many of which reduce the accuracy and safety of the original weapon design.

Your all caps make you appear unstable. And bringing God into the equation is an insult to Him.

Chill out and feed your goldfish.

They are being exploited especially when it just came out that all the questions were scripted by CNN. One student just told he didn't go because CNN had the questions they wanted asked and would not let this kid ask his question. You think these kids are really interested in the NRA giving money to Rubio?? These kids today don't know about and could care less. I bet none of them could name one interest group other than NRA and probably couldn't tell you what NRA stands for.

What a sucker you are. It's turning out to be a CNN script... cynical adults manipulating children, who are told to "stick to the script." You're all a bunch of child abusers.
