I don't pay attention to protests, they have their rights but lately it seems they don't know what they are protesting about. When I see these kids it reminds me of Kent State and we all know what happened there and that's why preventative security is a necessity in today's environment. Now it's individuals and not the Guard that are a threat. As long as it doesn't interfere with my daily life they can protest all the want, when I see news coverage of these I just jump to another station. In my 71 years of life I have never protested anything, there are other ways of getting my point across.

In the spirit of trying to educate those who associate the AR-15 as a military weapon PLEASE READ the following:

Modern Sporting Rifle - AR-15 platform-based rifles

I am not intending to change anybody's mind about how or where this weapon or any of the hundreds that look just like it was used for good or bad.

My intention? Just because this SPORTING RIFLE looks like the assault weapon and weapon of choice of all the seal team, white house down, rambo movies.....it is not!!!!

Those uninformed or those who choose to ignore the difference, just like many gun issues will stick with what ever jargon suits their agenda.

The modern sporting rifle designated AR-15 is most certainly capable of being used as a weapon create mass casualties.....just like most other fire arms available today in the hands of a wigged out wack job can do.

The real issue behind the mass casualty incidents gets lost and overwhelmed in the gun bluster of the day. Hence....there will be no change in the results.

Yep.

It's hard for me to imagine, why anyone would be proud about NOT marching...for civil rights and trying to end sanctioned discrimination.



Not to mention those students who gave their lives, on American soil no less...to protest against the Vietnam War.

You I assume, didn’t serve your country during that time?

Too young, but watched Walter every night in 66/67 as a 10 year old...hoping my Dad was still alive over there.

I believe you are 100% correct, but that area is ignored pretty much, because it might not serve a political agenda very well!

Hope your dad made it out ok...
They still had the draft back then, and I hope we as a
country never put our service men & women in
such a situation and
then not support them!
March for our lives

I guess the people replying didn’t pay much attention to the news around the country today, LSL was small compared to the gatherings across the country. Did anyone notice that all the major cities had Sound systems set up for the young adults?
I agree shame on TV and the sheriffs department for the way they handled the event.the foolish remarks that this was a sponsored event only shows ignorance!

Wait until Shooter's World opens and if there are sit-ins - protests or such...

In my opinion students should be having marches against the Broward Co Sheriffs office and the FBI. THEY were truly the ones at fault and the reason the shooting happened.

Also in my opinion, the students have good intentions - BUT are truly being used to forward a political agenda. period. And when they are in college, it will continue in spades.
