    I’ll probably join them if an event is organized in my city.
    Exploitation!

    Well I was told here that using children to further a political agenda is not exploitation, so I guess it’s not.
    Well I was told by you that it was exploitation, but I guess it's not now.

    Except the 'children' you mocked in veiled fashion aren't being used- they're fully engaged on their own terms.

    Edit: thought better of my post.

    I hope these kids don’t loose hope and stay on message specially with the opposition trying to shut them down ..
    Agreed. They have the power and support, just need to channel it in the right direction.

  • Who is the best spoken, most balanced, and credible talking head for gun rights in the mainstream public forum?

    I ask because I seriously don't know. The ones I see are full on idiots. I must not be seeing the ones that give the cause any credibility.

    I also ask because if there really isn't one... then what does that truly tell us about that side of 'the debate'?

    There are good arguments for gun rights,  and therefore there may be good spokespeople.  However there are no good arguments for being against background, bump stock , AR bans, etc. No one has made a compelling one,  its only fantasy land government takeover crap . Therefore you can't find a good spokesperson when there isn't a good argument.

    What a tool, I don't buy this "apology" for one second.

    Fuck anyone who takes the time to tear others down (and for something like this?!) and their pathetic attempt to back-pedal.

    It’s laughable that the grownups are the ones looking like complete garbage as if these kids were somehow talked into starting such a movement , I’m 57 and so thankful I never had to face what these kids went through that day the most vicious thing I saw in high school was a fist fight ...

    Haha

    Hey look... I pointed it out not so much that it bothered me... but more so to illustrate what I was getting at earlier: when people are having challenges spelling words like 'cat'... it's hard to take their arguments very seriously.

    So since many of these children probably misspell words from time to time, we should not take them seriously?  I see typos all of the time in CNN articles, so we shouldn’t take CNN seriously, right?  If accidental typos here and there are your measure for intelligence, then the level of pettiness has gotten extreme.  Stop being petty.  I have a hard time taking petty people that constantly point out grammar errors seriously...

    I'm being serious. I am sorry. I never read your link, but I can admit to being a bit of an ass in this case.

    I hate the pro gun argument, but I don't hate you. You're actually decent.

    Easier to attack the gun control crowd and say this is an echo chamber than answer a question you yourself don't personally care about. Just like the mention of the pro-gun rally was only done to mock the anti-gun rallies and support for them as if the same hostility would be shown if they express the opposing viewpoint. Just dumb. Stand for something because you believe in it not because you hope it makes the other side upset.

    I do like Kasich.  I question the “armor piercing” ban a bit, not knowing the full extent of it.  Almost all rifle rounds can potentially pierce body armor and many hunting rounds can easily since they are made to break through the bones of game such as wild boars.  Honestly, though, I do not keep up with the “who’s who” of celeb talking heads and do not spend my free time watching mainstream media.  I know plenty of military and police personnel that are pro gun...I don’t know a single “balanced/credible” gun control activist, but the term itself is pretty subjective on ideology.  
    There are many pro gun democrats, do they lose Democrat credibility if they are pro gun?

    I most definitely support the right of the people to keep and bear arms.  I really don’t care whether that upsets you or not.  I actually believe more in the right than the actual keeping and bearing of arms.  And if I’m not mistaken, there has been mention here several times of “sticking it to the pro gun crowd”, so get off your high horse of “they just want to upset us, waaaaaaaaa”.

    There are no serious democrats pushing for a repeal of the 2nd Amendment.  In fact, there is almost 100% overlap with most Democratic proposals and Kasich's, the AR ban is the big divergence (and it's big).  Therefore if Kasich is a strong, reasonable conservative (and I think he is) then there's a lot of commonality between his proposal and mainstream Democratic proposals.  
    Remember, the Senate couldn't even get the Manchin-Toomey compromise through the Senate in '13.  It's not Democrats holding up even moderate proposals.
