If you were amazed that a handful of traumatized Florida high school students were able to organize the most effective anti-gun movement in decades, all in a matter of days, where previous efforts by adults have failed, here’s what the media didn’t tell you: it wasn’t magic. The left figured out that exploiting the victims of school shootings wasn’t effective, so now, they’re exploiting the survivors.

At the link, David Hines of the Federalist reveals all the well-funded liberal community organizing groups, big money donors (including Oprah and George Clooney) and gun control organizations quietly pulling the strings behind the “grassroots” student gun control movement. This might also explain why students who support the Second Amendment and think the solution is better security and competent law enforcement were shunned by the media. Hines also poses an intriguing question: Why did the media allow all this behind-the-scenes manipulation by professional lobbyists and political organizers to go on for two weeks and never report it, while they presented this as a legitimate children’s crusade? The answer is obvious: they agreed with it.

This is well worth reading, not only so you know what’s really going on and who’s behind it, but as both a warning to Republicans of the type of voter-turnout machine they’ll be facing in November and a primer on exactly how the left organizes and turns out its base, which we’ve already seen them do very effectively in a number of recent special elections.

    I know that a person has to fill out a form which asks questions such as, "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?" when he or she buys a gun. Do you know if the gun shop actually verifies that information? In order to purchase a "permit to carry" a more in depth background study is required, I assume, because you have to wait several days to get it. Did the shooter at the Florida high school have a permit to carry? My question is, "How did he buy a gun when he had 39 visits from the Sheriff"s Department , 20 concerned phone calls, and a call to the FBI about him?" Did none of that show up in the background check, or did the store not do a proper background check? I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment, but we need to do something to prevent mentally unstable, violent people from being able to purchase a gun. Someone needs to investigate what went wrong in the process of the shooter's purchase of that gun, and either enforce the screening process better or rewrite it to prevent this kind of incident.
    Also I think that the gun free zones make the people "sitting ducks." Either schools will have to have good policemen or guards on site, or allow the administrators and teachers who are trained and have a "permit to carry" to protect their students. They could be stored in a safe or hidden where the students could not find them.
    I know that you have connections with those in high places. Please feel free to share any or all of these ideas with someone who can effect the needed changes.
    Thank you and God bless you and protect you.

    I completely agree with Laurie! The need to misinform your readers is because pride & deception keep you from believing that articulate, educated & sharp students CAN put together a delegation of students to march, travel to Tallahassee or Washington on their own. Of course, they need financial help & the input of parents/teachers. But the fact that their hearts' determination to STOP THE MASSACRE is their motivation to act is dismissed & de-valued - that is unconscionable & cowardly!! The lying and distortion of the truth are sickening! I'll be very surprised if this is posted.

    You are the one that should be ashamed Laurie, for your ignorance of the situation. You may consider researching what has happened in countries that have given away their rights to own guns. Once you give away a "right", it is hard to get it back. I hope you live long enough to see what the United States is becoming and live to suffer through it. I am thankful I will not be here to see it. The Devil is taking over.

    The left exploiting the victims? That would be the other way around mr huckabee. The nra and it's largely rt wing base is exploiting these shootings to promote gun sales! You should be ashamed. I will not be surprised if this does not post as it may offend your delicate sensibilities unlike the mass shootings
