This is happening at the Alabama State House
It’s about three hours south of where I live, and part of me wishes I would have gone just to see the spectacle.

Watch the video. It’s almost 30 minutes long.
Rather than a set of cogent and rational points, the kids just mindlessly chanted meaningless slogans like:
“USA not NRA.”
“Show me what democracy looks like. This is what democracy looks like.”
“Hey hey, ho ho, the NRA has got to go.”
“Not one more.”
“Vote them out.”
“No justice, no peace.”
If this doesn’t convince you to change your opinion on gun rights, it’s because you have a modicum of critical thinking ability.
I have no idea how man of these kids are from Alabama, but I wonder how many of them know just how much money the State of Alabama spent to attract Remington and Kimber from New York, not to mention Steyr USA with the promise of low taxes and easy gun regulations.
A bunch of kids screaming nonsense to get Alabama to change the laws that would drive away three big name companies and all the jobs associated with them. Especially Kimber, which was brought into Troy to revitalize manufacturing in a economically depressed area.
Sounds like a great idea, that I’m sure will be successful.
As Charles Darwin said: “Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge”
That explains why these kids are so damn confident.
