Parkland Student calls for "Confiscation of all Semi-Automatic Firearms"

On Sunday, the most recognizable far-left activist from Parkland, Florida called for the confiscation of all semi-automatic weapons from American society in the wake of a shooting in Tennessee.

Reacting to the shooting at a Waffle House in Tennessee in which several people were shot, far-left activist Emma González immediately attacked the NRA and Smith & Wesson Corp.

After several tweets, González called for the confiscation of all semi-automatic firearms, writing: "Removing the assault and semi-automatic weapons from our Civilian society, instituting thorough background checks and mandatory waiting periods (and raising the buying age and banning the production of high-capacity magazines) are the ways to stop shootings in America." Guess that statement makes so sense to only a Progressive !

González then falsely claimed that mass shootings do not happen in other countries, despite the fact that the worst mass shootings in world history have all happened outside the United States.

The top-6 deadliest mass shootings in world history:

1. 2017 Egyptian Mosque Attack, 305+ deaths
2. 2015 Kenya College Attack, 148 deaths
3. 2014 Pakistan School Massacre, 141 deaths
4. 2015 Paris Attacks, 130 deaths
5. 2011 Norway Attacks, 67 deaths
6. 2013 Kenya Shopping Mall Attack, 67 deaths

Oh the stupidity of Progressives is just a Continual Vicious Cycle shown each and everyday.

You don't have the right to a semi-autamatic weapon of war unless you are in the military. Get a pistol instead. I am not against all guns, just the extremists.

The vast majority of weapons are semi-automatic, including handguns. Semi-automatic means a gun that fires once when the trigger is pulled and that doesn't have to be reloaded after each shot. It does not mean a fully automatic machine gun.

Nothing better than someone who can't figure out if they have a hole or a pecker, who will soon be seeing a therapist weekly to talk about what daddy did to them, trying to dictate the Constitution to us.

The student has every right to her opinion, just as an NRA member has a right to theirs. I disagree with her as stated. There are many semi-auto weapons that, to me, are okay. I agree with the majority of NRA members that assault weapons should be banned, that large capacity magazines should be banned, that thorough background checks should be mandatory. None of that steps on the second amendment, just makes it more practical for todays situation. Things have changed since the Musket, the amendment should change with it.

What has changed since the musket? If there are laser guns in the future, can we have them, or does a totalitarian regime get to phaser us?

Well, let's see. The musket took between two and three minutes to reload its single shot, which wasn't very accurate because the barrel wasn't "rifled". In 2-3 minutes the target could either be out of range or punching the perpetrator in the face! Today, an assault weapon is reloaded in a microsecond and another round is coming out of the barrel before someone has registered that s/he is being shot at! Lasers? Get real! A totalitarian regime doesn't yet need a phaser, all they need is a 30 round magazine that's hard to stand up against!

Apparently you are still in grammar school if your imagination runs to lasers and phasers!

90% Christian, anti Communist, and founded around the family?

Leftists are too stupid to realize or mention that locking the doors would have prevented the entire shooting. Of course we all know, leftists want us disarmed so that we can't revolt when they give the Stalinist government omnipotence.

Hunting shotguns are more dangerous than any semi-automatic weapon you can ever imagine...

Don't give them any ideas. They'll be coming for your butter knives next if they think an eye could be lost somehow. You want a peanutbutter sandwich? Too bad. You might poke an eye out.

They just want to make a big commotion, PEOPLE DIE EVERY FUCKING DAY! Why are we making this a special case? All guns are a basic human right, try to take them, and watch a war spark. I don't care who dies, You can never take away our weapons, even our semi-automatic ones, we have the right to be a well armed militia, taking away these violates this right, take this away, and I promise a lot more deaths will spring from it.
