And parading him around on tv, feeding him lines an pumping him up before he could even grieve or psychologically deal with what happened was the lefts idea of not being douches. He was a allowed a few days of acting like an out of control brat under the circumstances, but you guys insisted on turning him into the next Anthony Weiner and expect everyone to love him.
Every time he accepts an offer to Opine on CNN he's making a choice to be a part of this , and he's actively accepting CNN's choice to make him the posterboy for the cause... I have no idea who that is, nor do I care as this is the first I've ever seen this image... and you using it in this context shows that you're not arguing the issue, but rather attacking me as a messenger
At Best he was 3 buildings away and never in the line of Fire... He's no more a victim than some one across town...
and assuming he 'is' some kind of a victim, 'what he went through' does not make him an expert on the issues, and he stopped being 'a Kid' when he started becoming a commentator and interview subject on every gun related news story he could get in front of a camera for...
again... He's not 'a Kid' they've Bragged up the fact that they're going to Vote in November... do you think some 'magic' mystical 'adulthood' is bestowed upon people when they complete their 18th trip around the sun?
If he's supposed to be competent enough to vote in 5 months, and smart enough to tell people how they should Vote, then he can be held accountable what he says and does today...
and more people get 'splattered' by teens texting and driving (by a Factor) than do die by 'gun violence' Every GD Day.... You don't know me, you don't know what 'forces' made me the asshole I am today. and if you're going to try quote me, my words are right there, how can you get them wrong?
Again, age matters not. Under different circumstances this would be just another loudmouth kid in a sea of loudmouth kids. Nothing to me. But he experienced something truly horrible that changed his life. He is passionate about making a change. Again, understandable. I actually applaud a kid who is passionate about something.
But taking something from someone who has never done anything to him isn't the answer. I have never done anything to the kid, yet he wants to have my rights removed. Sounds logical to the liberal mind, I guess.
Actually, no. I know better than to tell people like you my personal details.

Hogg was never a kid to begin with. He was a 21-year-old paid actor from California working for Soros.
Actually, I think quite a lot about lots of things and yes, I do believe that needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. I would be willing to make a compromise on my stance about guns, however. My compromise is simple: remove every last criminal from America so I no longer feel the need to arm myself, and then I will surrender my guns. All of them. Without question or hesitation.
Impossible, you say? The reason I carry a gun isn't because I am afraid. I go about my daily life most days without incident. But I have had ordinary situations turn ugly, and I handle large amounts of cash for my job. I have no intention of dying for someone else's money, or even my own for that matter. But some dirtbag who decides to take the chance probably has no intentions of leaving me breathing. There are bad people in the world who do bad things. I simply choose to even the odds.
As for David Hogg...I sympathize, I really do. I hope that he eventually finds peace. These things do happen, but I didn't do it and neither did anyone I know. Why should we be punished for something that we heard about on the news?
Finally...have you ever considered the notion that I say some of the things that I say just to get a rise out of people ?
What cliche' are you referring to? In case you haven't noticed, there are bad people everywhere who do terrible things. Not just in the liberal utopia called Chicago. I was once forced to shoot someone who had broken into my house. It turned out that he was armed. Don't tell me that I don't understand.
Good for you. I have not been that lucky.
Actually, I don't fear this kid. I think his intentions are honorable, but his approach is wrong.
Punishing law-abiding citizens by removing their guaranteed rights.
Considered? All you say is pre fabricated trite reactionary emotioned based incoherent nonsense designed by those you borrow it from to trigger a *yawn* response. If it the lame original didn't get a rise, how's it supposed to do so for the nth unimaginative ignorant pretender to snooze it?
[[Tablet froze up, wouldn't type anymore, so I hit Post trying to jar it, thinking it wouldn't]]
The only reason I dislike this kid is because he is trying to take something from me, even though I have never done anything to him. The fact that I exist makes me a target in his eyes. I have a problem with that.
Furthermore, I am all for common sense laws as long as my rights are protected and I am not punished for the actions of a few nutbags.
