Parkland Student Creates Armbands to Advocate for Gun Control

The gun-grabbing kiddos from Parkland have been making the news like wild. They’re on a quest to rid every ‘Murican citizen of their pesky kiddie-killing boomsticks. One particular student activist had an idea for a hip new accessory to help spread the gospel of a gunless world.

I don’t think she thought this one through:

Yeah, I’m going to go out on a limb and assume these kids skipped history class.

Before you break out the hammer and nails to crucify me, I’m not saying the kids are Literally Hitler. I’m not a leftist, after all. I know their choice of armbands wasn’t intentional and they’re copying student hippies from the ’60s. Alls I’m saying is a group of armband-clad under aged lemmings marching in the name of big government isn’t the best look, regardless of their intentions.

Apparently, I’m not alone in thinking that either:

After the backlash, the student deleted the tweet and issued an apology:

We have to cut the kids a little slack on account of their ignorance. They lack experience and perspective to understand the complexities of issues and their actions. This is also why it’s silly to let them dictate American gun policy.

Also, while we’re on the subject, armbands, ribbons, and other grandstanding gestures don’t do anything for a cause. I have yet to find a single person who changed their opinion on a subject thanks to a clever Twitter hashtag. Facts and stats, on the other hand, are effective like Michael Moore taste-testing for Little Debbie. Unfortunately for anti-gunners, facts to back up their views are scarce. Which leads to the dependence on superficial gestures. Which might accidentally harken back to Nazis.

Younglings are impulsive. The dive right into an initiative without ever stopping to think if it’s a good idea or not. Hence, poor fashion choices that unintentionally make the kids look like foot soldiers for the Fourth Reich.

Some advice to the kids from an old man. Ditch the MSNBC and pick up a history book for a change.

Speaking of history:



OMG…skip to 7:00 on the video to hear just how clueless these kids are! We better start making our voices heard people.
