OK, look, I know it’s hacky and the first thing that would come to mind after reading this (which, by the way, is awful and sad) but I’ve got 2 unoriginal things, so that’s better… right? (Don’t answer that.)
1. If the NRA* can be held responsible for all gun homicides (newsflash: they can’t) then David Hogg and his classmates have even more responsibility for this boy’s death than the NRA ever could for a gun homicide. They literally said “hey, go out there and march” and that led to this boy’s tragic death.
2. In a school shooting, gun owners and manufacturers are told that they are evil and must be put in check for the greater good. Meanwhile, the 8 other people/organizations that let someone slip through the cracks get little attention. Apply those politics to this situation, and instead of seeing how the walkout got out of hand or a driver was distracted, people would attack… David Hogg and Ford.
