March for Our Lives: Why Should We Care?
Why should we advocate for stricter gun laws?
187,000+ children have experienced this sort of violence at their schools. America has a dangerous love affair with these killing machines and putting them in the classrooms is not the answer. You can try to claim otherwise but this is one subject I will not entertain your ignorance. We as students shouldn't have to be worried about whether or not we'll make it back home from school. We shouldn't have to worry about our younger siblings getting shot at. I don't know why wanting the nation's children to be safe in their schools is such a controversial topic.)
I have had many debates (and arguements that eventually led to a block) aboutathis specific topic. Usually countries with stdicysgun laws yet high rates of other deaths have been brought into the fray.
People love to use the Holocaust as a defense. But then this would mean Francs, Britain, and Austria didn't have weapons? Except they had weapons. France held for days but still couldn't beat the Germans. France is a world power and was at that time the greatest military power. And they were defeated. The world's best military was defeated and you're trying to claim it was because they didn't have the right to bear arms? That seriously makes no sense. Britain was number two and the Blitzkrieg almost took them out of the game. They barely held on long enough for the other Allies to come to their rescue. And Germany? Yeah Hitler had control of the entire army. The citizens did have weapons (there were at least two widely known uprisings of armed citizens. One contained over 300 members of the Warsas ghetto but even then they still lost against the military.)
I do understand some try so hard to make sense but people need brush up on history.
America scares too easily. The French pick up the pieces, come together and move on. We scream, cry, come together for a week and then scream that we're going to wage anarchy down on the world. And then we bomb people and get then even angrier because we've killed their babies and mothers and brother and fathers. Innocents that we didn't care about because we didn't stop to think. Because we scare easy and they know it so they push us and they know it only takes one push to get us to do exactly what they wanted. And then after we've done it they have reason to attack. And it's stupid no one realizes that.
They use America to further themselves. And America usually plays right into their hands. And then they've seen what we do to our own citizens. Half the country doesn't even have the same rights as the other half. Well, more than half. Just fifty years ago 3/5 of the US was considered lesser than the other 2/5. And that's why people laugh at us. Because we're a country of hypocrisy.
Now I 100% support the 2nd amendment but gun laws need to change. A 19 year old shouldn't have their hands on a gun or have access to one. It's frustrating that even after children were senselessly murdered in their 1st grade class rooms Congress still has not done anything.
I am willing to debate with you if you are willing to be rational.
