BREAKING: Parkland Student Calls For Nationwide Gun Confiscation After Waffle House Shooting

For reasons unknown, millions of adults — including politicians — are deferring to liberal teen activists (who are literally ignorant about firearms and firearms laws) when it comes to how gun laws should work in America.

Just because these teens survived a mass shooting does NOT make them Second Amendment experts. Folks, at the end of the day — they’re still stupid teenagers, just like we once were.

But this prominent, radical left-wing teen activist from Parkland is pretty sure you shouldn’t have any guns at all…

DailyWire reports:

On Sunday, the most recognizable far-left activist from Parkland, Florida called for the confiscation of all semi-automatic weapons from American society in the wake of a shooting in Tennessee.

Reacting to the shooting at a Waffle House in Tennessee in which several people were shot, far-left activist Emma González immediately attacked the NRA and Smith & Wesson Corp.

After several tweets, González called for the confiscation of all semi-automatic firearms, writing: “Removing the assault and semi-automatic weapons from our Civilian society, instituting thorough background checks and mandatory waiting periods (and raising the buying age and banning the production of high-capacity magazines) are the ways to stop shootings in America.”

González then falsely claimed that mass shootings do not happen in other countries, despite the fact that the worst mass shootings in world history have all happened outside the United States.

The top-6 deadliest mass shootings in world history:

1. 2017 Egyptian Mosque Attack, 305+ deaths
2. 2015 Kenya College Attack, 148 deaths
3. 2014 Pakistan School Massacre, 141 deaths
4. 2015 Paris Attacks, 130 deaths
5. 2011 Norway Attacks, 67 deaths
6. 2013 Kenya Shopping Mall Attack, 67 deaths

This list was compiled was from the World Atlas, the Egyptian Mosque attack was added as the World Atlas’ list had not been updated to reflect the attack.

Rapper Who Performed at Gun Control March Arrested Last Year on Concealed Handgun Charge

Rapper Vic Mensa performed for Saturday’s student march for gun control, coined the March for Our Lives, although he was arrested last year on a concealed handgun charge.

Mensa was arrested in Beverly Hills after being found with a concealed handgun without a California concealed carry license.

On March 7, 2017, TMZ reported, “[Mensa] was stopped in Beverly Hills … for running a stop sign and having tinted windows … according to law enforcement sources. We’re told he informed cops he had a gun in his car and showed them his concealed carry permit. The problem is … cops say the permit is for another state.”

Mensa faced “felony” charges for the incident but was able to plead down to “two years probation.”

In addition to performing Saturday, Mensa called out another rapper, Killer Mike, for criticizing march participants who blindly follow the “progressive movement.” Killer Mike warned that gun control ultimately means blacks lose the guns with which they protect their freedom. Mensa responded by challenging him to a debate:

Killer Mike responded by saying, “We got the same publicist and u have my phone number. I ain’t dodge’n u”:

Amy Schumer to pro-gun America: ‘You are killing children’

Comedian Amy Schumer condemned the National Rifle Association and gun-rights activists for “killing children” during her speech at the March for Our Lives protest in Los Angeles on Saturday.

“Because we know it’s hard and we know they will twist our words and laugh at us and lie and lie and lie and lie and lie,” Schumer said, according to the Daily Beast. “How do they sleep at night? You are killing children.”

The actress said the activists will be mocked as “Hollywood liberals” for attending the rally, but they are doing their part “to keep our children alive.”

Acknowledging that becoming politically active might mean that she will “sell half as many tickets” to her stand-up shows, she took a jab at politicians who accept donations from the NRA.

“You see that, politicians?” she snarked. “You can make a little less money and be able to look at yourself in the mirror with no blood on your hands.”

Schumer became an outspoken voice in favor of gun control after a gunman killed two people at a Louisiana movie theater during a screening of her movie “Trainwreck” in 2015.

Alec Baldwin: Time to Rethink Second Amendment

ctor Alec Baldwin entered the gun control push on March 5 by tweeting his criticism of the number of guns Americans can purchase and stressing his belief that it is time to rethink the Second Amendment.

His tweet comes on the heels of a new NRATV ad calling out “every Hollywood phony” and members of the “lying media.”

The ad features NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch saying, “We’ve had enough of the lies, the sanctimony, the arrogance, the hatred, the pettiness, the fake news. We are done with your agenda to undermine voters’ will and individual liberty in America.”

She continues, “So to every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phony, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents, to the politicians who would rather watch America burn than lose one ounce of their personal power … your time is running out.”

Baldwin used the NRA ad as a springboard from which to complain about the number of guns Americans can legally purchase and to criticize the Second Amendment in general.

He tweeted:

The Second Amendment says nothing about how many guns a citizen can purchase because the goal of the Second Amendment was to restrict governments, rather than individuals. As with all amendments in the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment is in place to restrain tyranny via regulation and legislation, not to limit the people’s freedom.

Looked at another way, does the First Amendment only protect an American’s right to speak a certain number of words freely? Are Americans limited to an arbitrary standard of 30 or 40 words of free speech, or it is okay for Alec Baldwin to speak freely using 49 words in a tweet?

Americans enjoy a rich heritage of liberty characterized by all the freedoms protected by the Bill of Rights. By singling out Second Amendment rights for restrictions, Baldwin demonstrates anew the left’s tendency to treat the private gun ownership as a second-class right.

President Trump Asks Dianne Feinstein to Add ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban to School Safety Bill

President Trump asked Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to add her “assault weapons” ban to the overarching school safety bill during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers on Wednesday.

Feinstein’s bill, which is an enhanced reintroduction of a bill she has put forward again and again, bans over 200 different firearms.

During Wednesday’s White House meeting, Trump showed support for the gun control pushed by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-PA). The Manchin/Toomey bill is a gun control bill that the Democrat-controlled Senate rejected on April 17, 2013. But Trump chalked that failure up to Barack Obama’s lack of leadership, and talked of using the Manchin/Toomey bill as a base to which other bills could be added.

The goal was to create a body of gun legislation, ubiquitously for the purposes of school safety.

Sen. Feinstein talked about her bill and described the AR-15 as one of “the latest and newest weapons” to hit our streets. However, Eugene Stoner designed the AR-15 in the 1950s and Armalite began producing the gun during the 1960s. Are weapons from 60 years ago now considered “latest and newest”?

Nonetheless, Trump listened to Feinstein, heard from a few more gun control proponents—including Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL)—then looked back at Feinstein and told her she should add her bill to the Manchin/Toomey bill for consideration.

Poll: Voters Support Arming Teachers After Florida School Shooting

A February 22-26 poll conducted by Morning Consult/Politico shows that voters support arming teachers in the wake of the Florida school shooting.

The margin of support was 50% to 42%.

The poll also found that voters support “protecting the right of Americans to own guns” over “limiting gun ownership” by a margin of 46% to 42%.

On February 27 Breitbart News reported a Rasmussen survey that showed Americans blamed government rather than guns for the Florida school shooting.

According to Rasmussen, 54% of Americans believe government failure is to “blame for the mass shooting.” Only 33% of Americans blame guns. Eleven percent of Americans say they are unsure what contributed to the occurrence of the mass shooting.

When the group of respondents was narrowed to so as to only include those “who have children of elementary or secondary school age,” the percentage of Americans who cite government failure as causal jumped to 61 and the percentage who blamed guns dropped to 23.

HotelPlanner.com Sticks with NRA, Preserves Discounted Rate for NRA Members

HotelPlanner CEO says they will not boycott NRA

HotelPlanner.com CEO Tim Hentschel says his company will stick with the NRA and continue to offer discounts to NRA members.

Fox Business quoted Hentschel as he explained that staying with the NRA “is not about politics at all.” Rather, he said, “It’s about classic hospitality and not getting involved in a boycott war.”

He added, “I know what it’s like to feel vulnerable and scared. It’s not about me, it’s not about personal beliefs,” he said. “It’s just about the right for businesses to honor contracts. I have a contract, and I will honor it, and I will stand by it.”

Hentschel said he has been attacked personally for deciding to honor agreements with the NRA, that people have “accused him of being an out-of-touch, privileged CEO.” He quickly notes that he grew up living out of a car in utter poverty in Los Angeles before being adopted into a family that provided structure for him.

HotelPlanner.com’s decision to stick with the NRA comes just days after FedEx announced that it would not cut ties with the NRA either. While FedEx does not support civilian ownership of AR-15s, the company made clear that it “strongly [supports] the constitutional right of U.S. citizens to own firearms.”

Over a dozen other companies–including Delta Airlines, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Best Western, MetLife, Hertz, and Allied Van Lines–caved to an anti-NRA campaign and announced they were cutting ties with the NRA last week.

David Hogg Vows Not to Return to School Until Lawmakers Pass Gun Control

David Hogg

Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg says he will not return to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School until more gun control is passed.

Hogg made the comments Sunday during a gun control rally held at Temple B’nai Abraham in Livingston, New Jersey.

The New York Daily News reports that Hogg said, “I’m not going back to school on Wednesday until one bill is passed.” He did not specify which law he wants most, only that he is not going back until at least one law garners the support of lawmakers.

He said, “Literally any legislation at this point would be a success. Considering the fact that so few legislators in Florida met with us and they want the people to forget, that’s disgusting. The fact that they want people to forget about this and elect them again as the child murderers they are, that’s unacceptable and we’re not going to let that happen.”

To date, state-level gun control proposals include “tougher background checks,” a bump stock ban, a waiting period for long gun purchases, raising minimum age for rifle purchases to 21-years old, and gun confiscation orders similar to California’s Gun Violence Restraining Orders. All of these gun controls were proposed last week by Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) and not a single one of them would have prevented the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Proposed gun controls at the federal level include proposals similar to Gov. Scott’s, plus an “assault weapons” ban and “universal background checks.” Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) is a leading voice for these gun controls, even though neither one would have prevented the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. (The “assault weapons” ban would not have prevented the shooting because such a ban, if fashioned like the 1994-2004 ban, does not actually ban certain guns. Rather, it bans cosmetic features. And universal background checks would be impotent because the gunman, Nikolas Cruz, passed a background check for the rifle he used on February 14.)

The one change that could make an immediate difference in school safety would be to arm teachers as Utah did over 15 years ago, and as is currently being done in school districts in Colorado, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, and other states. But David Hogg, Gov. Scott, and Rep. Deutch all oppose arming teachers for school safety.

Gov. Scott said we should rely on law enforcement, Deutch said talk of arming teachers is a “distraction,” and Hogg said money that would be used to arm teachers should instead be put into S.T.E.M. studies so teachers “can do more cool stuff and we’ll be able to create jobs in renewable, clean and independent American energy like wind and solar.”

Georgia Lt. Gov Vows No Tax Break for Delta if Airline Continues Political Boycott of NRA

COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. (WJBF)- Georgia Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle has his sights set on a higher office.

Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle (R) responded to Delta’s decision to sever ties with NRA by announcing he will work to ensure the airline gets no tax breaks unless their political boycott ends.

On February 24, Breitbart News reported that over a dozen companies had cut ties with NRA in the wake of an anti-Second Amendment campaign targeting companies that gave discounts and other perks to NRA members. Delta Airlines was one of the companies that announced they were ending their relationship with the NRA:

On February 26, Lt. Gov. Cagle responded by making clear there would be no tax cuts for Delta until they ended their political boycott of the NRA:

Cagle’s message to Delta came two days after he made clear that “discriminating against law-abiding gun owners will not solve the problem” we face in attacks like the one on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Cagle tweeted:

I’m a lifetime member  of the NRA and a strong supporter of law abiding citizens’ Second Amendment rights. Like all Americans, I’m horrified by the mass shootings we’ve witnessed. If corporate America wants to make a positive difference on gun violence, it should donate a portion of its profits to mental health treatments and school safety initiatives. They should put their money where their mouth is instead of engaging in viewpoint discrimination against conservatives and law-abiding gun owners.

United Airlines, Budget, Alamo Rent a Car, First National Bank of Omaha, Hertz, Metlife, and Best Western are among the other companies that caved to the anti-Second Amendment PR campaign as well.

The Florida Gun Show witnessed record attendance Saturday at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

The record attendance comes as Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) push more gun control for gun shows. Other Democrats, like Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), arepushing an “assault weapons” ban, a bump stock ban, and universal background checks, among other controls.

The public response to the gun control push was a record turnout at the Florida Gun Show.

WTSP reports “almost 7,000” people attended the show Saturday, and they expected even more people to attend on Sunday.

Gun show manager George Fernandez said he has never seen crowds so big. And he quickly admitted, “Some of the people attending are afraid that future legislation will impact their gun ownership rights.”

WTSP reporter Shannon Valladolid tweeted video from the gun show:
