  1. Earlier you posted adults saying what do kids know as if to make out the kids were being virtuous and the adults some kind of oppressors or something.

    This cartoon communicates similar although with a much darker image of the “adults”.

    The truth is that blame and protest will change nothing. And kids don’t have the years that it takes to have wisdom. Not every “adult” is wise but wisdom doesn’t come without years.

    The only thing that makes change is taking action. I would suggest that considering how countries like U.K. and Australia have acted when there has been mass shootings in these countries might not be a bad place to start for the US.

  2. Quoting out of context? Come on David.

    You and I both know that blame and protest alone without taking action will change nothing.

    This happens every time there is a mass shooting in the US. Conferences are had, talks are made and nothing changes. In fact it’s got worse.

    So I stand by what I say about blame and protest, that these alone not bringing about change and with respect count your BS comment as a sign that I am doing something right.

  3. In context the comment was about blame and protest changing nothing without taking action for example the restriction of firearms in the UK and Australia.

    This self evidently is true.

    To disagree I would posit is to disagree with a comment taken out of context and therefore to disagree with a point that is not being made.

    That’s presenting an argument not as it has been made in its entirety. It’s easier to knock that down rather than engaging with the points argued.

    I call straw man on your disagreeing and affirm that disagreeing isn’t always bad but never disagreeing is.

  4. “I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks! Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue – I hope!”

    Is there anything about this comment that is unreasonable or making out kids to not know what they are talking about?

    Seems to me as an observer from the UK – there is potential for the US to be working together as a country on this if the people of America can put aside the extreme partisanship. This kind of thing has worked in the UK and Australia.

    Hopefully the same can in the US – for the sake of kids lives!
