How to Frame the School-Shooting Problem Without Partisan Stumping


from The Daily Bell:

Post Parkland: Are We Missing The Mark?

People love narratives, and why not? They help us cope with a sudden tragedy when the pieces of the puzzle are either missing, hard to comprehend or even when we find it hard to face facts. Here we stand looking down the barrel of days gone by, salt in our still-healing wounds questioning things we could have done, should have done or would have done had we not let narratives get in the way. But in trying to understand school shootings and how to move forward in their wake, are we missing the mark?

What follows will not be popular among Republicans, nor should it be. Likewise, it will not be popular among Democrats, nor should it be. But it needs to be said to serve as a voice of reason in the aftermath of an event that somehow divided us when it should have brought each and every one of us together.

“Hitler Youth” student gun control march invades Washington, follows in the footsteps of Nazis who disarmed the Jews before the Holocaust

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

The “Hitler Youth” invasion of Washington D.C. took place today as young fascists-in-training were corralled into the nation’s capitol to demand that government authoritarians strip away the civil liberties of all law-abiding Americans in the name of “gun control.”

Just like Hitler Youth enthusiasts, these fascists-in-training are told they’re “saving lives” for “a better future,” and that the only thing standing in their way is a bunch of violent gun owners who want to murder every baby in sight. (The irony of all these left-wingers actually condoning the abortion murder of babies, of course, is completely missed in all this.)

Hogg-Tied To The Gunfire At Parkland School

RELATED: EXPOSED: School Shooting Survivor Turned Activist David Hogg’s Father in FBI, Appears To Have Been Coached On Anti-Trump Lines

by Yoichi Shimatsu, Rense:

The evidence available thus far from the Valentine’s day massacre has been mounting against the Hogg family as undercover accomplices and beneficiaries in the clandestine operation that killed 17 students and teachers. David Hogg has zero right to talk about “gun control” when his father works for the most murderous part of the assault-rifle industry, the killer-training program known as Cubic Simulation Systems, a nice name for Murder Inc. Version 2.

The Hoggs are lying hustlers and profiteers from the worst gun violence in the world from war-torn Iraq to downtown USA. Here it will be shown that the father, Kevin Hogg, and his employer belong on the most-wanted suspect list for the Parkland school gunshot deaths. American citizens have every to own guns to protect themselves from the lethal deceptions of the Hoggs. Mothers and fathers of Marjorie Stoneman Douglas students, do not let your children follow these Pied Pipers to their dishonor and destruction.

Illuminati Tutor Youth in Treason


by Ryan M., Henry Makow:

Communists exploit gender, race and class divisions.

Their latest suckers are youth who are being taught

to embrace the globalist agenda. 

As the New World Order captures the souls of the masses, its main target is youth. The youth of today will consummate this totalitarian globalist agenda. It seems they have been empowered, but in reality – it’s all contrived via TV and social media. This is obvious from the pre-planned, gun control  onslaught by so-called students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after the “shooting event” on February 14th.


from The Daily Sheeple:

American Marxists have long followed an axiom used by former President Obama’s first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, who once intoned, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste” because “it’s an opportunity to do things you could not do before.”

That includes, of course, dead children, especially when they are murdered in school by a crazed former student whom everyone and their sister knew was dangerous, right up to and including the FBI.

As such, the Lefties who run America’s social media companies — Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter — were not about to forget Rahm’s Rule following the most recent mass murder of students at a Parkland, Florida, high school last month.

Citigroup Announces Gun Control Requirements for Clients and Small Businesses

by Allum Bokhari, Breitbart:

Citi group, the fourth-largest bank in the United States, has announced it will no longer do business with clients that do not meet a host of progressive gun control requirements, none of which are mandated by federal law.
In a blog post, Citi group announced:

Under this new policy, we will require new retail sector clients or partners to adhere to these best practices: (1) they don’t sell firearms to someone who hasn’t passed a background check, (2) they restrict the sale of firearms for individuals under 21 years of age, and (3) they don’t sell bump stocks or high-capacity magazines. This policy will apply across the firm, including to small business, commercial and institutional clients, as well as credit card partners, whether co-brand or private label. It doesn’t impact the ability of consumers to use their Citi cards at merchants of their choice.


from The Daily Sheeple:

Two fatal shootings in two hours just two miles apart in Chicago is devastating news to some. But the city itself is becoming numb to the violence they cannot fight because good citizens have been disarmed by the law.

According to The Chicago Tribune, Gerald Thomas, who owned the building one of the fatally shot people was renting, said he has witnessed far too many acts of violence since he bought the property and moved there in 2012. “It’s like normal,” he said. “It’s not even warm yet. With the liquor store right here, shooting incidents like this happen every day. I’m immune to it.”

Confiscation: Oregon Initiative Seeks To Ban Semiautomatic Rifles, Mandate Current Owners To Turn Them Over


by Matt Vespa, Townhall:

After the tragic school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, which left 17 people dead, the calls for new gun laws have reached a fever pitch again. Of course, Congress will pass no new laws on the subject. There’s no need, as it’s becoming increasingly clear that enforcement of the current laws that could have prevented shooter Nikolas Cruz from obtaining firearms was egregiously absent. Federal, state, and local authorities failed miserably to act upon the many red flags presented by this disturbed man. Yet, at the state-level, it’s a different ballgame.

YouTube Cracks Down Further On Gun Channels

by Tom Knighton, Lew Rockwell:

YouTube started out awesome. You could post videos of anything you wanted, pretty much. Then, over time, they realized that if they paid content creators, those creators could churn out better content. It was pretty cool. People could make a living entertaining folks or teaching them cool stuff.

However, YouTube soon started to turn left politically. They started demonetizing content they disagreed with while turning a blind eye to content they did. This forced content creators–people who often made their living off of YouTube money–to find alternative avenues for revenue.

Gun channels ran into this occasionally, as well, among other things. YouTube, despite being a great place to find gun content, began to crack down on gun channels.

Gunman shoots two students at Maryland high school — armed security officer halts attack in 60 seconds using a loaded weapon


by JD Heyes, Natural News:

Three students at a Maryland high school are in critical condition Tuesday morning after one male student brought a handgun to school and shot a female student while striking another male student.

According to local media, the attack occurred at Great Mills High School in Great Mills, Md. The shooter, himself a student, exchanged fire with a school resource officer (SRO); the student was wounded in the exchange.

Deputies were called to the school shortly before 8 a.m.; the school is located about 60 miles southeast of Washington, D.C.

St. Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron told local media his office has prepared for this kind of incident, but added that despite the quick response from the SRO, two students were still shot.
