Since the Parkland shooting, I’ve been hearing all over the media why it is time to let 16 year olds vote.
The short answer is: they support far left wing anti gun policies.
They hypocrisy has been pointed out that the same people who want to give 16 year olds the right to vote want to make the age for buying a gun 21. There is far greater national damage to be done by letting immature people have the franchise than letting them have guns. Most 16 year olds won’t shoot anybody, but most of them would probably pull the trigger for a Sanders/Warren ticket.
Others have mocked the idea that the kids who were eating Tide Pods until February 13 for internet fame are capable of handling the responsibility of the franchise after February 14 – because they marched for a Left Wing cause.
A march in Stockton some five days ago I think blows a hole in this idea, which is why I didn’t hear about it until just last night, and not through any national news outlet.
It seems that many of these kids don’t care about the Left Wing politics, and simply wanted a day off from school. When adults in law enforcement stood up to them, the kids got violent.
At least five students were arrested Friday as hundreds of others from several Stockton high schools walked out of classes in protest of gun violence after last week’s deadly shooting at a Florida high school.
Students at Stagg, Edison, Chavez, Lincoln and Village Oak high schools were walking along streets, creating traffic problems in the area as streets were blocked off.
Stockton police said some students threw rocks and damaged both police and citizen vehicles.
During one incident, an officer approached a group of students attempting to leave a school by jumping a fence. When the officer approached the students, police said they fought with the officer and took his baton.
These kids have been empowered by the media the way Occupy Wall Street was, as the “voice of a movement” and just like OWS, all they really did was smash things.
That kind of behavior only makes me want to support their movement more.
No wait, it doesn’t. Once again it begs the question: “why are anti gun activists so violent?”
I actually liked these kids better when they were just eating Tide Pods.
