"A Negative Impact" A Gubernatorial Candidate Speaks Truth on Parkland Activists

Bill Lee says the Parkland gun activists have had a negative impact on the conversation over the second amendment.

Please don't take this as an endorsement, but it is refreshing to hear a candidate say this. At a Tennessee Forum for gubernatorial candidates, Republican Bill Lee and the other candidates are asked if the Parkland students have had a negative or positive influence on the gun control debate. All of the candidates say positive, except Bill Lee.

He says they've had a negative impact. And he would be correct.

It's nice to see a candidate not fall all over himself giving platitudes and head pats to this.

It depends on which of the students we're talking about, I think that Kyle Kashuv has had a positive impact, but the students who are getting the most attention are having a negative effect, because they're contributing to the country being more polarized.

So yet again some politician raises the issue of gun control and again we hear crickets about illegal weapons. Irrespective of the "discussion", it is always about legal gun owners with
zero talk of the black on black murders in every city of the US. Here is a good summary of some points.

Leftists, primarily in the media, are using these kids to promote leftist lies about guns and mass shootings. You see, because they attended this school and are minors to leftists they have ‘a right’ to speak on this issue and anyone who points out the fallacies in what they are saying are ‘bullies’. They are using these kids as a shield to their bankrupt ideology.

An extreme rush to judgement is usually negative. The facts about the Parkland shooting and what was behind the actions opf the Broward County Sheriffs were not known for a time. We now have more gun regulation because earlier ones were not enforced. Are the politicians giving their true feeling, or what they think the public wants to hear? Guns are the focus because that was the instrument used, other weapons just as deadly are being ignored.

The best form of gun control is 15 in the 7 ring!
