It is almost dangerous to be a pro-gun, Second Amendment-supporting student in America. Liberal voices are heard and babied, while those of conservatives are beaten down into submission.
Elizabeth Najjar, a 16-year-old high school student, dropped a pro-gun video that her school begged her to take down.
It has since gone viral.
Eat your heart out, David Hogg!
From Fox News:
A high school student in Virginia is claiming that she was asked by her school to take down a video where she spoke of gun rights, a claim that’s been disputed by school officials.
Elizabeth Najjar, 16, posted an 18-minute Facebook video on April 1 in which she spoke against both the recent March For Our Lives event and students who have walked out of school to press for tougher gun control.
“It’s not the guns that kill, it’s really not the guns that kill,” she says in her video. “If you see a gun sitting on the counter, it’s not just going to kill someone. The person has to pick it up and kill someone, that’s a fact, it’s people killing people.”
Najjar went on to claim that employees at Freedom High School in Chantilly, Va., have discriminated against her conservative views, including making her take off a hat because it had a gun manufacturer’s logo on it. In another instance, the 16-year-old claims she had her backpack searched because she was seen with a magazine about police and army gear.
Tomi Lahren, a fellow gun-rights supporter (and mostly conservative) female Fox News commentator shared this tweet about Najjar:
Washington Examiner has more:
Najjar compared the way her support of the Second Amendment is constantly criticized to how her teacher told her class that there are more than two genders. Najjar briefly mentioned how a transgender classmate’s views were considered more important than her own.
“This had nothing to do with the Second Amendment,” Byard told Red Alert Politics. “The video … mentioned a minor student as transgender by name without the student’s knowledge or permission. Several students brought this to the attention of the administration. The guidance staff mentioned to Elizabeth that it might be wise to pull the video from public view and edit out the student’s name.”
Hogg and his anti-gun peers Cameron Kasky, Delaney Tarr, and Emma Gonzalez, have made names for themselves by aiming to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.
Naturally, the far-left mainstream media has taken their side since they serve as the communications wing of the Democrat Party.
However, it would seem as though Hogg’s movement was all for nothing as gun sales soared in March.
From Washington Free Beacon via Gateway Pundit:
Last month saw the most gun-related background checks run by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of any March on record, documents released by the agency on Tuesday show.
With 2,767,699 checks conducted by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) in March 2018, the month beats the previous record of 2,523,265 set in March 2016 by 244,434 checks. That represents a 9.68 percent increase.
The number of checks run through NICS in a month is considered one of the strongest indicators for how well gun sales are doing because each sale made by a federally licensed dealer, such as a gun store, is subject to a check. The state, however, is not an exact representation of gun sales due to a number of factors. For instance, the vast majority of states don’t require checks on the sale of used guns between private parties, some states use the checks in their process for issuing gun-carry permits, and sales of multiple guns during a single transaction by a dealer generally only requires a single background check.
Hogg is no fan of his school’s recently implemented clear backpack policy.
He has no problem taking guns away from law-abiding Americans, but gets royally ticked off when his rights are infringed upon.
In fact, Hogg actually said the clear backpacks violate his constitutional rights.
From Daily Wire:
Hogg claimed that the decision by Democratic Broward County officials violated his “First Amendment rights” as he also cited potential embarrassment for students going through “their menstrual cycle” because of their “tampons and stuff.”
“It’s unnecessary, it’s embarrassing for a lot of the students and it makes them feel isolated and separated from the rest of American school culture where they’re having essentially their First Amendment rights infringed upon because they can’t freely wear whatever backpack they want regardless of what it is,” Hogg said.
“It has to be a clear backpack,” Hogg continued. “What we should have is just more policies that make sure that these students are feeling safe and secure in their schools and not like they’re being fought against like it’s a prison.”
Hogg has an absurd demand for Congress and the White House.
Fast forward to Tuesday afternoon, when Hogg, the defacto leader of this gang of delinquents, jumped into the fray by retweeting what might be one of the dumbest petitions in recent history.
Compiled by some obscure political commentator, the petition demands that both White House staff members and our congressional legislators also be forced to carry clear backpacks:
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students in Parkland, Florida are now required to only use clear backpacks in an attempt to prevent additional acts of gun violence which tragically took 17 lives in February. That’s right, clear backpacks instead of passing laws to protect these kids.
Well if it’s so logical, let’s see Congress and the White House put a clear briefcase and bag policy in place, too. It’s only fair. …
The clear backpacks will serve as a daily reminder to students that our nationally elected members of Congress and White House occupants refuse to take meaningful action to stop mass murders caused by guns. If the kids have to carry around these clear bags, it only seems fair that those in Congress and White House should, too.
