Oh no, John Kasich has butthurt, and the only cure is more gun control
Kasich said the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., who have been speaking out for more gun control after 17 students were killed Wednesday, are right and should be taken seriously by Congress.
Ok Governor, two queries here. First are those kids right? Stats say no. More people in America are buying, and more are carrying firearms. Yet violent crime and homicide rates are still dropping. Millions of ARs have been sold, and the number used for evil purposes is exceedingly miniscule. The fact is, Governor,these kids are being used as propaganda tools by the left.
“If you’re a strong Second Amendment person, you need to slow down and take a look at reasonable things that can be done to answer these young people, and frankly, my hope is in the next generation,” he said.
OK, again name even one “responsible thing” Governor. If you want responsible things then why not call for better armed security? Perhaps urge local school districts to look into hiring retired military, police, or Secret Service personnel? Perhaps start a foundation that helps pay those who would be glad to protect kids? Maybe call for some of the wasteful spending to be rerouted to help offset the cost? Arming teachers who have carry permits and undergo active shooter training? No, nothing except “reasonable gun laws”? OK tell us the law that will actually do anything to stop the next schools hooting.
Kasich called on politicians to take a tough vote on gun control and possibly pay for it with their jobs. He said it’s politically risky, especially for Republicans who represent districts where gun rights are important.
“In life, when you have a set of values, which are loving our children or somebody else’s children, sometimes you have to put yourself at risk,” he said. “You put yourself at risk that you may not get re-elected. If you can move things forward in the name of peace in our country and you lose an election, we’ll give you a badge and a crown.”
To hell with crowns Governor. How about more politicians that actually seek something more than tired, useless rhetoric and talking points? How about this Governor, just sit down and shut up until you have an original idea? We have had enough bluster and political BS from grandstanding politicians.
