Kirsters Baish| The news has been completely taken over by coverage on the “March for Our Lives” protests over the last weekend. The left continues to push their anti-Second Amendment narrative, but some of us have noticed a shocking hypocritical detail about the demonstrations.
In the wake of the horrific shooting in Parkland, Florida, the Democrats have decided that guns and the NRA are entirely to blame. Somehow, the left has decided to place blame on the NRA, even though the Parkland, Florida shooter, Nikolas Cruz, had no affiliation with the organization. The left continues to insist that guns are to blame.
These student activists don’t understand the first thing about irony. Protesters held signs and yelled that guns should be banned, but they missed a very important detail. All of the protesters were being protected by heavily armed men with guns, so their narrative doesn’t seem to hold up.
TheBlaze noted the big disconnect on Saturday when they posted a picture of anti-Second Amendment protesters being guarded by a man carrying an AR-15… one of the very guns they were protesting.

The irony didn’t stop there. Countless photos of the supposedly “anti-gun” rallies showed security personnel and officers with all types of firearms, from AR rifles to handguns… and even actual military equipment showed up to keep the marchers safe.

Take a moment to think about it. These protesters were protesting the very tools that the people which were protecting them relied upon. These same tools were the reason the school called the police to same them once Cruz started shooting up the school.
Conservative Tribune reported, “Some commentators, including Jack Posobiec, went out of their way to thank armed law enforcement officers for providing security, subtly pointing out the incongruity.”

It would have been a different case if these protests were actually intended to find real solutions to stop school violence. The issue is that these protests are just a way to get closer to taking our guns away and to further brainwash the youth of America. Armed and trained citizens could save lives.
One of the Parkland shooting survivors, David Hogg, has become famous for his many media rants and liberal agenda. He recently stated that law abiding gun owners who are members of the NRA are “pathetic f***ers that want to keep killing our children.”
“They could have blood from children splattered all over their faces and they wouldn’t take action, because they all still see those dollar signs,” Hogg claimed.
Then there are students like Emma Gonzalez, another Parkland, Florida shooting survivor. She recently stated, “I don’t really care what people who defend the Second Amendment have to say.”
The Second Amendment is part of the United States Constitution, so if these students don’t care about it then they clearly don’t care about anything our country stands for. They will continue to push this false narrative while refusing to come up with rational solutions.
