There’s only one group Stephen thinks can actually defend the kids. And it is. . . the kids.

    Sad that high schoolers take more incentive to save lives than our government. smh.

    Where were you Mr Colbert? A week without laughter in these sad times is a painful eternity.
    Welcome Back! 🙂

    After 17 teens were killed, their politician scrambled to protect the NRA.

    I saw it on a Tumblr post, where a survivor (can’t remember her name) of the shooting called out the Trump administration for not doing anything about the gun problems. She’s the one in the video who called them out for taking donations from the NRA

    Marco Rubio is an owned man, but the students are owned by no one! Emma Gonzalez and her classmates are the future!

    A week without Colbert is like a month spent in Azkaban.

    These students will be old enough to vote in the next election.

    I’m really proud of my generation. If the Congressmen (who we put into office precisely to prevent shit like Parkland High happening) won’t do shit about this massacre because they apparently love guns and money more than living, breathing souls, then we’ll have to do something about it.

    Less guns, more books.
    Education is the most powerful weapon available.

    Sadly, this will never change while there is money in it. It’s like recycling.. it went nowhere.. until someone found a way to make money out of it. Unless we find a way to monetize disarmament, or at least demonetize proliferation… By banning lobbying, for example.. it will never happen.

    What Sen. Rubio is really trying to say is that he received a lot of money from the NRA and he is not going to jeopardize that large of a “campaign contribution” by voting on any form of legislation that will hinder the NRA. What a little slime ball.

    But politicians are doing something. They’re demonizing the mentally ill, a persecuted and underserved group who are disproportionately victims of violence rather than perpetrators.

    “Criminals don’t obey laws so we shouldn’t bother with gun laws”.

    Going by that stupid logic we shouldn’t bother with rape and murder laws since criminals still carry out rape and murder. Gun nuts don’t understand there is no perfect solution to gun violence the best you can do is to take steps to reduce it.

    If you actually know why Assault Weapons were unbanned, you’ll see the crime rate literally stayed the exact same it was before the ban. As a whole, gun violence around the country is down, according to the DOJ. I wish these things didn’t happen, but the numbers don’t add up.

    The fact that these kids are doing more to fight for gun control than our elected officials is both impressive and a little concerning. The fact that it’s taken this long to see anyone do anything about gun control is embarrassing. I actually had a short conversation with one of the students from the school. She started messaging me after I made several outraged tweets She told me a little about Coach Feis, the hero that gave his life to protect kids from the gunfire, and I extended my sincerest condolences. Everything these kids have done, from talking with people, giving politicians and news reporters a piece of their mind, organizing walkouts, and posting videos from inside the school to show people the horror that took place, has made me feel like idk, more connected to this shooting than any others. I can’t really say how or why but I feel much closer to this than just a simple spectator watching it unfold. Idk I just thought I’d share that. Oh and PS fuck anyone who says this wasn’t about guns and tries to blame movies, music and video games. Clearly you can’t accept the fact that your incompetence is partially responsible for this and are just trying to divert blame so that you don’t have to do anything. Blaming pop culture isn’t gonna fix anything, revising and improving gun control laws will
