What Fresh Hell Is This?

And Now, Ms Emma Gonzalez

You can read and watch her entire speech here.

Some highlights:
I read something very powerful to me today. It was from the point of view of a teacher. And I quote: When adults tell me I have the right to own a gun, all I can hear is my right to own a gun outweighs your student's right to live. All I hear is mine, mine, mine, mine.
Only yesterday we looked at Joe The Plumber, one time Tea Party Darling of the GOP who actually said:
[Y]our dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.
That was four years ago. The right wing meme is still out there, infecting the brains of lots and lots of our conservative friends. How many innocents have had to die so that Joe (and many others in the "pro-life" GOP) can keep and maintain their gun-boners? Viagra ain't got nothing compared a well-stocked gun cabinet.

Back to Ms Gonzalez:
If the President wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a terrible tragedy and how it should never have happened and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it, I'm going to happily ask him how much money he received from the National Rifle Association.
And:
To every politician who is taking donations from the NRA, shame on you.
Shame on you.

I enthusiastically support the Democrats making Abolishing the Second Amendment the central plank in their platform going forward.
