Kiddies Plan Walkouts Friday, Wake County Group Wants To Ban All Semi-Automatic Weapons

It’s great when they they tell us their actual agenda by accident

(Raleigh News and Observer) Students across the nation plan to keep up the pressure for tougher gun laws with school walkouts and rallies Friday, including an event that’s expected to bring hundreds of people to downtown Raleigh.

Students are planning to walk out of class at 10 a.m. Friday in more than 2,000 events nationally, including several in North Carolina, as part of the National School Walkout. But once the school day ends, organizers of the Why Wake Walks event plan to mobilize students from different Wake County high schools to come to Raleigh to show state lawmakers they’re serious about pushing for gun reform.

“We want to put pressure on legislators to show that we’re serious,” said Lily Levin, 17, a junior at Cary Academy and one of the organizers of Why Wake Walks. “Once we get old enough to vote, we’re going to vote people out who support the NRA (National Rifle Association) and oppose gun reform.”

First, you have to wonder how many will return to class, and why this is even being allowed. The schools have a responsibility to these children, and if any are hurt or commit crimes, the schools are on the hook. Second, no, you won’t vote. We keep hearing about the young people vote, and how this and that and the other will get them to put down the video games and selfie sticks and get out there, but, they don’t.

Here’s where it gets interesting, way, way down in the article

U.S. Rep. David Price is scheduled to speak at the event, where people will talk about Why Wake Walk’s platform, which includes comprehensive background checks for all gun purchases and banning “bump stocks,” attachments that can make semi-automatic weapons fire faster. The platform also says the group wants “semi-automatic weapons illegal to civilians,” but Levin said they’re talking about weapons like AR-15 rifles and not handguns..

“We’re not here to repeal the Second Amendment,” Levin said. “We just want to reform the gun laws in place. The research shows that the U.S. has more gun deaths than other first world countries, and it’s directly correlated to these gun laws.”

See, David Price, a Democrat (and I’m unfortunately in his district), realizes that the WWW platform is problematic (I’ve saved the whole thing to the documents folder). Under the bump stocks section

Bump stocks turn semi-automatic rifles into “near-automatic rifles.”
How they work: “A bump stock is a piece of plastic or metal molded to the lower end of a rifle. The device allows a shooter to fire dozens of rounds in seconds by harnessing the gun’s natural recoil. A rifle with this type of mechanism is optimal with a high-capacity magazine that can hold between 60 and 100 rounds and a hand grip that allows a shooter to push the rifle away from the body to bounce, or bump, the weapon into the trigger finger.” For more information, click here

Semi-automatic weapons are STILL legal, and so are automatic weapons made before 1986. Additionally, with the use of bump stocks, semi-automatics can become even more lethal.

Sure makes it appear as if they have a problem with all semi-automatics, but, no, automatics have been mostly illegal since the 1930’s. (but, yes, I do support banning bump stocks). Here’s the kicker

Semi-automatic weapons illegal to civilians 
These weapons have again and again been used in mass shootings, from Sandy Hook to San Bernadino to Marjory Stoneman Douglas. They are not reasonable weapons for CIVILIAN defense. For more information, click here 

Price may be saying that it’s only the scary looking weapons they want to ban, but the screed says different. They’ve had plenty of time to change this, and haven’t. They went to great lengths to research much of the rest of the platform, are we to think that they just forgot this part?

    This is why you should never register your firearms. If you have a Model 1911 .45 (semi) automatic, the gendarmarie will know it, and come in to seize your weapons if cretins like these people get their way. Fortunately, there is no such thing as gun registration in Kentucky.

    This is why you should not have kiddies.
    And little lily levin should STFU.
    She like all kiddies doesn’t know nor hasn’t accomplished anything except living off her parents.

    A toddler shoots her pregnant mother in IN. Mom is in critical but stable condition. Boyfriend had left his loaded 9mm in the car while he ran inside.

      Toddlers die when left in hot cars, toddlers die when left unattended by water, etc., etc., etc. If you want to ban shitty parenting, I’m all for it. Let’s start with the people that are depending on others to pick up the bill(s) for them having kids…

    • McGehee says:

      Too bad the kid didn’t shoot the boyfriend. That would’ve been karma.

      • Dana says:

        The real problem: that an unmarried woman got pregnant.

        Why are we no longer surprised when we hear about a pregnant woman’s boyfriend?
