    Scripted, anti-gun pandering. No substantial discussion of mental health, drugs, gang wars and the fact that 75% of murders are committed by 14% of the population. Will leave you to look at the FBI figures to see what I'm talking about.

    Marc isn't suppose to represent his agenda. He is suppose to represent ours! He isn't alone in this ideology either. We should vote every last one out of office and start over! The Constitution grants us this privilege!

    "…but if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people, while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights…."

    This annotation is accurate comparing it to the context of the video so the downvotes must be from the 'people kill people, guns don't kill people' types.
    No shit.
    The Dickey Amendment 1996 controls the way research is done on gun violence. The funding for research on gun related violence is manipulated by that amendment.
    The problem is not that people have guns, the problem is that malicious people easily can get their hands on guns. What's the point in your right to bear arms if you're shot by someone abusing that right?

    Look it up people and stop belittling teenagers' rights to free speech. You can disagree but it is belittling to treat them like they are naive just because Washington Post and CNN are covering them. Rude.
    When you were a teen you would be PISSED if someone was that condescending. Teenagers are always involved with our american rights and THEY ARE NEAR VOTING AGE, so find another way to gripe, please.

    Can those on the left not see that every single time they go after the 2nd amendment, gun sales go thru the roof? Obama sold more automatic rifles than anyone alive. Do they not realize it? Gun dealers loves it when the left acts crazy over guns. They make money from it. No one wanted a bump stock until the left wanted them banned. The price of them doubled, and people bought them like crazy. Let them keep talking and scripting town halls. They know nothing about firearms. Gun education would be much more effective than more laws.

    That's it folks. If we just got 5 million Americans to quit the NRA, = no more shootings. Anyone have an idea how many bad guys and crazy s are members of the NRA?

    This was a Liberal-Progressive indoctrination exercise by CNN, for the students, on how to attack Conservative people. The log rolls over and a new generation takes to the mike.

    The NRA profits off gun-sales. When lunatics get guns and kill innocent people more people want guns and the NRA profits more. It's a no-lose for them and the more guns they can get in the hands of lunatics the more money they have to pay off these corrupt politicians so they vote no on gun-control…. which create more lunatics with guns and the loop continues.

    I here ban assault weapons. Ok what is the guarantee that will work? Will that stop all school shootings? Or is this just an agenda? I have been hearing this for for well over 5 years. CNN what is your agenda? I guess still do not understand why we don’t secure our schools. This killer should have never been able to get back on campus. Why are we not talking about that?

    My thoughts on school (or any other gathered crowd venue) gun violence particularly in America.

    There are a few technologies that would be much better suited to pinpointing a potential shooter in a public place such as the weapons detecting radar (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHeX3MqgRO4&feature=share) which was announced in 2013 and then disabling the shooter with the PHaSR (https://archive.is/20120721195102/http://www.af.mil/news/story.asp?storyID=123012699) weapon announced in 2005.

    Instead the best solution America's current President can come up with is to arm teachers with more guns which means more gun sales. Him and his ilk are just pawns of the gun manufacturers. Very sad indeed. There's a reason for this; guns are in the last throws of life as a development of the industrial revolution. It's been my experience that when more advanced technologies are introduced, existing technologies will do everything in their power to hang on to what they currently control. They have a vested interest. They never go down without a fight. Buggy whip manufacturers at the beginning of the 20th century were very unhappy with the introduction of the automobile too.

    My advice to the young people that have the opportunity to stop this madness is to forget about trying to ban the gun but to heavily promote the implementation of the aforementioned technologies to protect themselves from the last vestiges of a dying industrial era technology. There are too many guns out there to try and take them away but with new technologies they can be rendered impotent and they too will fade away into histories abyss, just like the buggy whip. Good luck to the young ones.

    This puke Sheriff, it now turns out, KNEW at the time that one of his own deputies was a coward and hid instead of protecting those children. This puke Sheriff blamed the NRA when he KNEW his deputy let those kids get murdered. He was trying to shift the blame. This puke needs to be fired. Fire Scott Isreal NOW !
