Over the weekend, an insanely high number of people — students, teachers, parents, — took to the streets with nifty little signs and their crusader caps on — figuratively — in order to participate in the anti-gun March For Our Lives event.
The protest was designed to give gun hating leftists a platform to spew their hatred for the Second Amendment, the NRA, and politicians who they blame for the mass shootings our country has experienced over the last few years.
A lot of the talk concerning gun control laws has to do with what most on the left call “assault weapons.” Campus Reform decided to hit the streets during the protest and see if the people attending this event even know what an assault weapon is.
You can guess how that went.
Campus Reform has the details:
Much of the legislative talk at the event was centered around the call to ban the sale of “assault weapons” in the United States. The March’s organizers even listed the demand, along with others, on its website.
Wanting to know what young people at the march thought of the proposed ban, and whether they knew what an “assault weapon” was, Campus Reform hit the streets of D.C. to find out.
Every single march attendee that we spoke with made it clear: they want to ban assault weapons.
When asked if they knew what an assault weapon was, they were a little less clear.
“Um, I mean no. But ‘assault weapon,’ does that sound safe to you?” said one attendee.
“It’s an arm…like a gun for instance that you can buy at a shop pretty easily, that can like cause more deaths than one I guess,” added another.
How about we give the Tide Pod generation a round of applause, folks.
If you’re not terrified for the future of this country in every way imaginable, then you weren’t paying attention to the horror show in that video. These people literally have no idea what they are talking about on the issue of guns, assault weapons, or the Second Amendment, yet here they are demanding laws be put in place that limit the freedom of all Americans.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be so surprised by how these kids are responding, especially since the vast majority attend government run public schools who seem to exist for the sole purpose of indoctrinating kids with progressive ideology. It seems their goal is to create future generations of adults who are loyal to the state.
Unfortunately, it seems like it’s working at the moment.
