Being a shooting victim doesnt make you an expert on ending gun violence. But you wouldnt know that from watching CNN.
Its been a week since a monster killed 17 people at a Florida high school. The calls for gun control have been reflexive and ambiguous, but the media have found a new mouthpiece shooting survivors.
Students seize control of gun debate blared a MSNBC caption. An organization portraying itself as being made up of students announced a March 24 rally in D.C. and other cities called March For Our Lives. Some students say they wont return to class until gun-control legislation has been passed. Videos of shooting survivors calling for gun control have gone viral.
Interviewing shooting survivors makes for compelling television, but its a horrible way to conduct a reasoned debate. Experiencing a tragic event doesnt transform you into an expert, in the same way having a brain injury doesnt make you a brain surgeon.

Being shot at does make you an enemy of freedom apparently.
I’m not a real big fan of enemies of freedom either.
Some students say they wont return to class until gun-control legislation has been passed.
I’ve watched these kids and they all sound like they just finished boot camp at a Brady Bunch facility.
Trying to remove the rights of free men will result in gun violence.
Increase the age to buy a weapon to 21 ? Why not increase it and the age to vote to 25 ?
Well, see, something good does come out of an evil deed.
That ought to reduce the classroom overcrowding and help alleviate a lot of the discipline problems within the public school systems ...
They should flunk their classes. Sadly that is not how schools work these days. Coddling is the norm.
good, we need more articles like this.
Funny, the media never says being a victim of illegal alien crime bestows any special status.
Those protests are well-organized and emerged quickly, complete with media talking points and coverage. Those students have lots of community organizing help coming from somewhere.
But, theyll get self-esteem and participation trophies!
Did this happen after previous school shootings? I don’t remember it happening.
Increase the age to buy a weapon to 21 ? Why not increase it and the age to vote to 25 ? /s to those those from Rio Limboland....
But signs like this should be seen at those so called protests which are nothing more than “democrat” aka pervert rallys.
I was wondering about this myself the last few days. If these kids are claiming moral superiority due to the fact that they were shot at once, I feel more morally superior since I have been shot at numerous times.
Unfortunately, no one is attending my press conference to tout real solutions to the school violence problem, sigh... I wonder why the press won’t give me equal coverage.
He started babbling about guilt for __________________ (fill in the blank) and especially for the fact that a kid he thought he "had saved" got shot anyway while leaving the auditorium - not sure what that was about....
He finished up trying to do a Dem/Hitler finish with raised fists and sing-song hollering to help get others wound up.
This is the kind of young idiot CNN thinks should have the vote...so many useful tools and so few "adults" to exploit them all.....
One of the kids mom is an anti-Trump activist with connections to CNN.
Being shot at does not make you an expert on ending gun violence. Especially if you crouched in a closet and cried
It is funny.
I hear them say “gunned down” all the time.
I never hear them say “illegal aliened down”.
