#MarchForOurLives was likely a major setback for the gun control movement. Not that they ever had a chance in hell of getting what they wanted. But it was caustic, abusive, the alt-left exposed their true contempt and disregard for the facts and other side (letting the truth slip out is never a win for them). Less than half the expected attendance showed up. And the ramifications are that now that Generation TidePod let their children rant cathartic at their misunderstandings on life, and we can go back to ignoring the uninformed children (and adults) until they grow up, and can get their basic facts right. (And as some older gun controllers prove that may be a very long wait).
Goals and objectives
Democrat Politicians don't actually want to fix things. If they did, they couldn't campaign or raise money on how evil the other side is (for allowing this to be broken), or on how you need them to fix it. They had all 3 houses during Obama's first term, didn't get near this topic. They only scream about it, when they stand no chance of doing anything, and they try to fix the wrong things to avoid losing a campaign cash-cow for themselves. So they play both sides, undermining things that would help, while pretending to care.
Look at this MarchForOurLives -- they know that this cause can only make things worse -- but they support it because the goal is to inflame the base and get voter turn-out. But it rarely works in their favor. Kids rarely vote, and the numbers are more divided than the vocal minority would lead you to believe (it's like 60/40 on gun control amongst the 18-24 crowd... and more the other way in the higher turn-out older crowd). The alt-left has to keep shifting attention from each failed meme to the next: Trump hates Russia, Women, Immigrants, LGBTQ, to kids (as proven by not doing what Obama and the Democrats didn't do when they had the chance).
And the results of this little snowflake meltdown:
- Attendance was less than half (and sometimes about 1/4th) of what was expected/promised or announced 
- NRA enrollment is way up
- gun sales of assault rifles have gone through the roof after the Trump Slump
- They are no closer to getting your anti-2A agenda -- because what they really want would require a repeal of the 2A
- They accidentally told the truth about their agenda ("give an inch and we'll take a mile") which never works out well for the alt-left
- Now gun owners are motivated and expected to turn out in droves next election
So what did we learn about caustic sock-puppets accidentally telling the truth? Trick question. If the alt-left could learn, they would be extinct. They have to be close minded finger-pointing emotional children, or they wouldn't have any attention at all.
One of the loudest sock puppets for the alt-left in the #MarchForOurLives, here's a High School kid, that parlayed being near a school shooting, and a radicalized ignorance on guns and gun control, into having the short term love and adoration of the far left. Of course these fad activists come and go, and tomorrow he'll be forgotten like any secondary activist in a leftist cause, or Hollywood C-list celebrity. So long and thanks for all the clickbait.
Emma Gonzalez was one of the sock-puppets for the DNC that came out loud and stupid about Gun Control after the Parkland shooting. The dimwit came out on the March for our Lives, wearing a Cuban flag on her arm. You can’t even make this up. She is wearing a Cuban 🇨🇺 flag, a communist country that is well known for disarming it’s own people and then slaughtering them wholesale; while addressing the US about gun control?
One of the student speakers let the truth slip out on Saturday: "We will take the big and we will take the small, but we will keep fighting. When they give us that inch, that bump stock ban, we will take a mile. We're not here for bread crumbs. We are here for real change."
When Parkland happened, a few sock puppets for the DNC came forward to follow what they were told to think, and regurgitate shallow and misinformed gun-control diatribes. And leftist news organizations like CNN and MSNBC fell all over themselves to talk about how brave they were to take the popular consensus opinion and try to steal other people's civil rights. And then there was Kyle Kashuv, who was an informed free thinker, who took the path less travelled, stood against the flock of little jack boots, and explained why they were wrong. The media and rest hated him: free speech is only for people who think like all the other far lefties, not informed kids like Kyle.
Laws can turn regular people into felons, but they can’t turn felons into regular people.
