Bloomberg’s ‘Everytown’ Is Behind ‘Grassroots’ Student ‘March for Our Lives’

The so-called non-partisan and student-led March for Our Lives to be held on March 24th is backed by Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown. This is no grassroots movement. It’s driven by the Democrat [Socialists] Party and an organization that is known for its gun-grabbing goals.

Traumatized students at Stoneman High School are being exploited by Everytown.

It’s not all the students throughout the nation who want anti-gun laws although that’s what the left wants people to believe. The students are backed by radical gun grabbers and it is partisan, whether these youth get it or not.

This is how Everytown describes their relatively new movement:

We’ve had enough. Thoughts and prayers are not enough to honor the victims of gun violence. What we need now is action.

On March 24, 2018, students will rally in Washington D.C and in local communities across the country to demand action from our leaders. Join us in the March For Our Lives, as we fight for an America that is free from gun violence.

The leftist Women’s March will also form events as will The [leftist] Partnership for Education. The Partnership for Education will hold a march on the anniversary of Columbine which also happens to be Hitler’s birthday. Hitler also took guns away from the people.

The ultimate goal of the left is to first ban rifles and then go for handguns.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL

The Democrat [Socialist] Party has talked of an Australian-type buyback, laws that would make guns expensive to own, bullets too expensive to buy, and bans on popular shotguns, rifles, and some handguns.

It’s the left’s policy of “incrementalism” to gut the Second Amendment. They are fully ready to confiscate all guns while claiming they are not.

An internal DOJ memo uncovered by the NRA states that the government plans to limit all importation, manufacture, sale, and possession of large capacity magazines:

In order to have an impact, large capacity magazine regulation needs to sharply curtail their availability to include restrictions on importation, manufacture, sale, and possession. An exemption for previously owned magazines would nearly eliminate any impact.

The memo asserts that assault weapons are not the major cause of the gun crimes and a ban on them would have little impact, especially given the fact that it would take decades to deplete the supply.

They, therefore, suggest that gun confiscation is the way to go:

Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to US gun homicide and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence. If coupled with a gun buyback and no exemptions then it could be effective. [Bold by editor]

They want mandatory gun registration of all firearms. This would be a prelude to confiscating ALL other guns.

The ban on rifles is a prelude to a ban on handguns.

WHAT WE NEED TO DO

The President is looking to strengthen the gun laws we have. We need to make agencies, like the FBI, do their job. The FBI has fallen down on the job in case after case.

We also need state and local governments to enforce the laws we have.

There is no talk of opening more facilities and providing more options for police to safeguard the public from people who are mentally ill and dangerous.

These leftist movements are not about protecting students. If they were interested in that, they would realize the only thing that will be effective is to add armed security. We have armed security everywhere in government buildings, airports, train stations. Schools need it too. This is the USA today.

The latest from the left is that the “students” don’t want armed protection. They don’t want any more militarization of schools.

Adding some armed guards is not militarization. That’s a left-wing talking point. It’s illogical.

Once again there is overwhelming outrage when it is “white” kids who are the victims.

The outrage arose from a troubled youth who bought a gun legally, FBI missed the report of him all the while the NRA fanatics defend their insane defence of all guns and ammunition in the face of overwhelming evidence to counter their insane stance.

I saw a clip of the Sheriff of Broward county making an overt political statement at some rally in a late evening vigil. He says, “if you’re an elected official and you want to keep things the way they are and not do things differently. If you want to keep the gun laws as they are now you will not get reelected in Broward County”. There was huge applause in response.

There are many in Law Enforcement that wholeheartedly believe in removing guns, any and all guns, from the civilian population. They ignorantly believe it would be safer for the community and them in particular. And obviously this sheriff is one of those, and it should call into question the actions of a department whose leader says this. In too many cases it is found to be a corrupt department. And, let us not forget it was THIS Sheriff’s department that had 39? calls about the perpetrator. I say, his remarks are a distraction for his Own culpability.

Are the media complicit in NOT protecting the children After a horrific event that was personally experienced. An excerpt from the article.

On Wednesday, CNN will air a town hall with kids who survived the massacre. Have they consulted with mental health experts about whether this is a positive way for young survivors to grapple with their grief? Have they taken into account the possibility that they are setting these kids up for a massive and devastating fall when the change they all know in their hearts they are about to create fails to occur?
The children of Parkland are not going to solve our nation’s problem with mass shootings. They aren’t even a first step. They are traumatized victims of that problem and they are kids. They don’t belong on television. They belong with parents, educators, and mental health professionals who are more worried about them than about national gun policy or, dare we suggest, ratings.
