“…first ones taxed and the last ones considered“
The Set Up:
A local public radio station, reporting on the meeting, quoted a high school freshman and a high school senior, both members of March for Our Lives Greensboro, who told the city they opposed the gun show. “A gun show where background checks and identification are not required is completely ridiculous,” said the freshman student, Anne Joy Cahill-Swenson. The NPR story, however, had to run a correction to its story – and the teenager’s erroneous claims – and admit that licensed firearms dealers do perform federal background checks at the Greenboro Gun and Knife Show.
“We all know it’s true: big guns are for people with small minds,” a second March member, high schooler Dominic Patafie, told the city leaders.
Then Mark Robinson, an actual adult, stood up and not only took the kids to school but their handlers and the Greensboro City Council on “The Proper Role of Government”:
I would like to think that their parents and educators would be cringing at their kids total lack of knowledge. After all, it is they that are responsible for them and their “knowledgebase”. To let them go out into public half-cocked and make uneducated fools of themselves is beyond the pale.
Is anyone just about “done” with these young teenage smartasses smearing those of us who DO know better? Or should we be done with both the teachers and parents?
