The Right Wants Kids to Carry Guns

Can you believe it? What will republicans think of next? For instance, Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene seems to think that if all kids carried a gun they'd be safer. The mental workings of these people are just amazing and it is so very scary. Parents in some states are actually afraid to put their kids in public schools. Kids are afraid too. Guns are being marketed to kids. Gun companies are gently advertising a smaller, lighter rifle made specifically for children. There is a gun called the JR15 that is smaller, shorter, and lighter and made just for kids. It's a real gun. Even though guns used by teens have outpaced automobiles in yearly death totals across the country. Gun companies want to normalize the use of guns. Make kids into child soldiers. Some families sent out Christmas cards with each member of the family holding a gun, even the small children. There is a video on the web of a toddler brandishing a gun and wandering around in an apartment complex. The NRA is involved in this. The National Rifleman's Association is now supporting Republicans and helping in their campaigns financially. Why? Because Democrats no longer represent rural areas and these areas are gun areas. So they have become part of the Republican Party. Your thoughts.

I think you'd really not like to hear my thoughts. And I don't want to be expelled from myLot.

I would hope that you might read up on the people and subject matter and hopefully come to a better decision.

@celticeagle What are you talking about? lol I said the right does not support arming kids. The GOP does not support arming kids. And the NRA does not support arming kids. So, your response is rather confusing. Does the NRA support the GOP monetarily? Yes. But what does it have to do with arming kids?

It is also not true. The GOP, the RIGHT, nor the NRA support this. MTG does. But she's nuts.

Gross. It's nasty to say but maybe some day Greene could accidentally shoot herself in the foot and shut up?? This whole thing is plain old creepy.

I don't support anybody, Republican or Democrat, who acts foolishly.
