did any of you Americans participate today? Was there tension between groups of students? I walked out of my school after I took my test but it was my last class today anyways lol. No one at my school (in the south) gave a fuck so there's that I guess.

lol +1 not sure what you plan on studying but many college degrees are a waste of time and money even if you learn new shit. think the point is to apply what you learn...which many with college degrees (or without) never do. gl! (from a guy with two degrees and ended up using neither of them for very long.) on a separate note, the message of walking out is fine...just sad it won't do much at the moment other than garner attention.

High school students around USA walked out of class to protest gun violence and capitol hill for 17 minutes for 17 victims. At about 10 am. Retarded but whatever.

Welcome to American logic my man. There's a reason we're still using laws from the 1700's (it's because we're stupid)

change is only good when it makes sense. this is the huge fault of the progression dogma. the amendments created so much time ago already had ages and ages of political data to analyze and predict gov behavior. some things need to be adapted to the modern ages, others don't. like banning guns for crowded area's since the amendments were created in rural context. but banning gun possession is beyond stupid. your forefathers knew that the power of the people to revolt is the only real check to a state.

This may be one of the most ignorant posts I've read in a while.
2018-03-14 20:30
the catalyst for change is sitting and doing the same same is what I got from his posts here
2018-03-14 20:45
So are you saying that the Magna Carta should be refuted because it was signed some 800 years ago? The King and Queen should be above the law and should have absolute power over the people with no one to check them? The people in Africa live in an impoverishing environment. Harder to grow crops and start buisnesses because they were colonies of a European country that placed limits on what they can do. They have not had good leadership or anything of the sort. No change can be made without the people as one trying to make the change.
2018-03-14 21:31
It wont change anything. Most kids leaving to get out of school. Protesting isnt retarded but school sponsored politcal protests for something no one supports is retarded.

No one supports stricter gun laws? Get off of 4chan and start interact with functioning members of society. Also, the protests aren't sponsored. Most of them are grassroots.
2018-03-14 19:51
Many of the schools arranged them and supported them. And it was not only for stricter gun laws but it was mostly for anti gun violence. Something that any reasonable person is not against. Walking out of your school /= making guns harder to get.

Learn that when the people rally together anything is possible. There are more things to protest in this world than just guns. Idk why you think everything revolves around our laws. Is there nothing in your country that you would want to protest against? How about your wretched Prime Minister?
2018-03-14 19:34
People rallying together won't change a thing if the person in charge doesn't actually care Of course there are things I'd change, none of them are important so I don't see the point in trying As for my wretched prime minister, I don't care enough about politics to see what he's up to I've still got a job, a roof over my head, dinner on my table and most of all, I feel safe, so I can't complain about my country

He had a loaded gun out in class showing it to students. He is a complete moron. 1st rule of handling a gun is to keep it concealed unless you intend to use it. A teacher if they choose to should be able to carry a legal hand gun into a classroom as long as it stays concealed.
2018-03-14 19:45
he was doing safety demonstration, not just randomly playing with his gun. Not sure if it was sanctioned activity or just him doing a session himself for the kids. This was a safety demonstration that still ended with a negligent discharge, I am sure this will go well to arm more less trained teachers. A weapon with a chambered round should be a weight on your mind, even the action of clearing the chamber is one of the highest chances for a negligent discharge. Far too many people feel totally at ease while handling these weapons, and leads to these discharges. If it doesnt weigh on your soul you are holding a ready killing machine and to be careful with every action , you really shouldn't have a weapon.

Yes he is a moron and shouldnt have had it out. You do not take a loaded gun out of its holster unless you intend to use it or are putting it away. I dont care if he was doing a safety demonstration. He could have brought a decoy gun if he had to have a gun out for the lesson. If you are trained correctly you are not a risk to the safety of anyone.
2018-03-14 20:34
he clearly intended to use it, to demonstrate weapon safety. Are you implying that weapons are such a risk that even safety demonstrations of weapons need to have fake weapons because it is unsafe otherwise, and following that sentiment up with we need to have more loaded guns around for safety? Impressive. I dont know if he is a moron, he is a teacher, a police officer, and military trained. This was however a pretty stupid mistake that shows a huge problem with the solution rather than the individual.

I guess the laws could be a bit stricter, but what a weird incident to be protesting around. Didn't the police visit his house like dozens and dozens of times? They knew he was a problem and they didn't try to prevent him from getting a gun?
2018-03-14 19:47
I guess they didn't think he was a big enough threat even though the signs are there. Even so, he shouldn't have had a semi-automatic rifle. People are using that to protest against current gun laws, and I guess kids feel motivated to act.
2018-03-14 19:58
ya i mean at what point do they step in and claim the guy has done something wrong? If your neighbor reports that you are weird to the FBI, you can no longer buy weapons? It just seems very weird from people walking around chanting 'shall not be infringed' are arguing that the neighbors reporting him should have been enough to criminalize and infringe his ability to buy weapons. Me later: Hi, uh fbi, he is acting very weird and disturbing, ya, he said his name was NRA, I dont know, he had on black lipstick and was shouting about his freedoms. Oh ok, you will put them on the 'cant own weapons' black list, sounds good thanks.
2018-03-14 20:52
he was posting creepy shit on instagram as well, which i think should have been reported. he also made a comment on a yt video saying that he wants to be a professional school shooter, and that was reported, yet nothing was done. i could go on an on about all the signs, but people need to be more vigilant in realizing potential threats. i think there is an obvious difference between weird and posing a threat to society, but i guess the line could be blurred with good acting. i just hope a tragedy on this level doesn't happen again, but it probably will.
2018-03-14 21:11
ya, my point is, look how effective swatting has been, calling up and claiming a situation and the cavalry arrives pumped up and ready. Now imagine if being swatted also potentially meant you were ineligible for protections of second amendment, because you became 'known' to the fbi. Of course, over time you will probably be able to prove you are not what the caller said you were, but isnt that the point in the first place, that you shouldnt have to prove you are innocent of what they said? Very slippery slope that will be abused if we decide differently, if we jump on people with full force of government because of their speech. And saying ' I want to be a _________________' is speech and not a directly communicated threat. You pretty much shred ever part of the constitution if we start treating neighbor complaints as actual government sanctions. I think you have a lot more constitutional protection to argue what 'well-regulated militia' means and why is 'well-regulated' and 'can not be infringed' in the same sentence. They are pretty obviously diametrically opposed, and there has to be a reason for that,.
2018-03-14 21:23
I agree with your opinion, and I feel like I don't have anything to contribute to the conversation, so I guess I will end it here. Thanks for the pleasant convo, it was a breath of fresh air on HLTV. Have a nice day.

I personally didn't walkout since it was my study hall period and I wanted to study for a test, along with me not caring all too much on the topic. But my friends told me how some girl started screeching that all guns should be banned. And after a few insults between her and others there was split between them and formed 2 groups of people saying either "all guns should be allowed" or "no guns at all".
