While Some Students Are Walking Out for Gun Control, Many Are Silently Joining Pro-2A Organizations

Guns America – by S.H. Blannelberry

While students across the country are staging walkouts at their schools Wednesday, some to protest for tougher gun laws, others probably just to skip class for a bit, many young adults are silently joining gun-rights organizations.

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) said this week that it’s observed a groundswell of support from post-millennials following the mass killing in Parkland, Florida.

SAF recorded a 1,200 percent increase in the number of 18- to 20-year-olds joining and supporting the organization, according to SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb.  

“We normally don’t get that many members or donors in that age group,” said Gottlieb, “since the gun rights movement typically trends toward older Americans. But the 18- to 20-year-olds have never been specifically targeted before, and they are obviously alarmed. This influx of young Americans into the gun rights movement is important, not just to respond to the current gun control threat, but as the movement has gotten older, it is encouraging to see so many young adults getting involved in support of Second Amendment rights.”

Lawmakers at both the federal and state level have been pushing legislation to ban the sale of all firearms to that age group. Florida — the GunShine State — just enacted such a law. One can argue that if it can happen there it can happen anywhere.

The assault on this demo isn’t just coming from politicians, though. Major retailers like Dick’s and Walmart have also opted to stop selling long guns to adults under the age of 21. This discriminatory targeting has precipitated at least one lawsuit.

“It’s important to note,” Gottlieb explained, “that this interest surge has been organic on the Internet. SAF did nothing special to make it happen. They have really done this on their own, finding us on the Internet and following up.”

Students staging these walkouts, on the other hand, have received a boatload of support from the media, corporationscelebrities, and gun-control organizations.  The goal is to make it appear as if every student supports gun control.

“I want young adults in the 18-to-20 age group to know they are welcome in the gun rights movement,” he stressed. “While the media has paraded high school students to push a gun control agenda, the age group that is now being targeted by that effort is energizing, and showing that there is another side to this controversy.”

  1. Some kids are smart enough to see what’s coming
    Not all of this current generation are a waste of space
    I’ve spent time talking to many kids from the ages of 18-30 ( yes 30 is a kid to me)
    You’d be surprised at how many didn’t take to the indoctrination
    Mind you it’s not huge numbers
    But some see what’s going on and are not going to play with the stupidity that is surrounding them
    We just need to keep showing them the real truth of what’s really happening

  2. Our side of the battle never gets any press, but we probably have a hundred million behind us who are tired of this BS.

    These kids are deluded if they think G.O.A. or the N.R.A. are going to preserve their rights, but at least they’re moving in the right direction on the learning curve.

  3. what the Soros funded useful idiots will never realize is this–there will ALWAYS be non-conformists, even if they FORCE (by bullying or shunning) conformity on our youth.And then guess what? Half of the useful idiot conformists will, upon reaching their 30s dealing with job or family or whatever, learn their lessons and stop supporting this nonsense! If I could do it, anyone can!
