Lol, funny enough, some of the protesting students might have a gun hidden inside his/her locker. grin


Most of the students protesting are experts in pulling the trigger at the slightesst provocation...They can finger the trigger like a guitar. Pretenders!!!! cool


Donald Trump should attend to other pressing issues rather than this one. It's just like fighting corruption in Nigeria.... It's fruitless. grin

Watched the CNN Townhall meeting with students,Parents,members of the NRA and Senator Macio Rubio..I was surprised seeing High school children standing up to their elected officials and asking for sensible Guns laws.They were not being shouted upon by claiming adults are talking..It isn't like here where if your parents are Christians you also must be one or else you are condemned for life..

However I think this battle would be won..It is moderm day battle against slavery but this time around it is about Guns..Yes that is it..If that of slavery could be won,This too would be won.

If an 18 Year Old cannot buy Alcohol,an 18 Year must not be able to handle a Gun..Simple as ABC
