I do believe that the kids submitted their statements to CNN, who chose the ones to air. Production does not have to mean censorship...unless you'd like to carry the discussion over to FOX.

These kids are not driving this by themselves. CNN orchestrated an entire production and gave those kids talking points. The kids are def on board, but they did not organize any of this without professional help. They have the backing of an entire political party. The DNC is fundraising for them.

Why not accept the fact that the kids are pushing the agenda themselves? I mean really...they're old enough to buy guns, but not old enough to be taken seriously when they take umbrage at getting shot? Seriously?

But if we're going to start awarding points to Trump and the NRA because an SRO did his job, that begs the question of how many points do we deduct when an SRO doesn't do his job.
Begging the question is a logical fallacy.
That being said, awarding points over the corpse of innocents is pretty disgusting behavior in general.
But it ok to use the kids from Parkland to score political points for the anti gun lobby?
So that would leave the poorer communities SOL.

This is not a single issue problem. It goes much deeper to the core of our society.

Im not much of a conspiracy guy, but here we are having more and more frequent things pushing this agenda.
They say they want to save kids, but why arent we talking real solutions to stop shooters? Simple and cheap things like:
I thought we wanted to save kids? Why arent we taking the most common sense, cheapest and most IMMEDIATE measures we could implement TOMORROW to do so?
We arent doing these simple things , were just talking about taking guns, and youre telling me theres no agenda here?
The simple devices above keep a shooter locked in a room or in a hallway with no way to get into a room full of kids, and at the mercy of whatever armed professional is around.
Why, WHY arent these being MANDATED to be had in school like OSHA mandates safety measures for construction sites?
Why? because its not about the kids for the left, its about the damn AGENDA
