USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Today is the one year anniversary of the Parkland High School Mass Shooting, in the days leading up to today, Mainstream Media outlets such as the NY Times, MSNBC, Rolling Stone and others have predictably stirred up a boiling cauldron of emotional blackmail, seasoned with outrageous lies, re-interviewing select victims family members as well as parading “survivor” and media darling David Hogg for all to see.

You might be wondering why I put “survivor” in quotes when referencing Hogg, well, it's really quite simple. He ISNT a survivor in any normal sense of the word. By all accounts, Hogg was in another building, on the opposite side of the sprawling campus from where the attack took place. He was never anywhere remotely close to being in any physical danger. Calling him a “victim” or “survivor” is just as absurd as if I claimed to have survived a plane crash because I happened to be at the airport when one occurred somewhere on the grounds.

The same holds for Emma Gonzalez. As the overhead image of the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High Campus shows, Gonzalez was also in a completely different building on the campus, albeit closer to the site of the attack than Hogg, but still far from any immediate danger.

Gonzalez has taken a somewhat lower profile role in the student push for extreme gun control, particularly after the “Never Again” March on DC last Spring. Hogg, however, is another story. He has eagerly prostituted himself out for the radical Gun Control powers that be; it's obvious he loves the attention and limelight, its equally apparent his puppet masters have done a comprehensive job of indoctrinating him in the intricacies of their Official Gun Control Playbook of arguments. (see lead image above)

Just the other day, Hogg was being showcased by MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and made the outrageous claim that an AR15 had an effective range of 1500 meters and would “only be used by someone hunting humans” and almost verbatim quote of language used by notorious Congressional Gun Banner Dianne Feinstein within the last couple of years. One thousand five hundred meters is over 1600 yards! In less than 30 seconds of Googling one can discover that the actual effective range of an AR15 is 300 to 500 yards. So Hogg tripled that when he lied. Furthermore, even the most extensively well trained Military Snipers would have difficulty making an accurate shot at 1600 yards from the target.

As this was going on, in equally transparent exploitation of the tragedy, Sen Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Congressman Ted Deutch introduced a bill to reinstate a 10 round magazine capacity limit as Fed Gun law, arguing that standard capacity magazines are somehow responsible for the acts of Mass Shooters. Of course, they and the media conveniently left out several relevant facts. Facts like the Parkland Shooter used 10 round magazines, facts like the VA Tech Shooter also used 10 round magazines in the Walther .22 caliber pistol he used. Facts like the Attorney Generals Investigation report on the Sandy Hook Massacre stated that multiple magazines were found on the floor only half expended, meaning the shooter changed them at around the ten rounds fired mark.

An even more damning fact is the DOJ/NIJ study of the effectiveness, or lack thereof of the now expired prior “Assault Weapons Ban” which also mandated a magazine capacity limit of ten rounds. The report unequivocally stated that there was “NO statistically measurable effect on violent crime “ as a result of that law.

Further, there are millions of standard capacity magazines already in public hands, and there is NO way to track them. They are not serialized or in any other way “traceable” they are also a durable good and can be expected to survive in the supply chain for decades to come. It's even true that firearms magazines are hardly an advanced piece of technology. They are nothing more than a simple piece of sheet metal folded into a specific shape, filled with a spring, follower and having a baseplate attached at the bottom. Your average High School Metal Shop student could easily make a serviceable magazine of any capacity desired in an afternoon.

What this means in the Real World is that criminals will do what they always do, ignore laws that Politicians like Menendez, Deutch and others swear they will abide by, which leaves legal gun owners and lawfully armed Citizens at a distinct disadvantage when defending themselves and their loved ones.

But Gun Control has never actually been about punishing criminals and those that abuse their rights and leaving the law-abiding alone to enjoy their freedoms to the maximum extent. Its always been about control, control over the American People, argued for by people that haven't the faintest clue what they are talking about.

At its core, Gun Control is a morally, ethically and intellectually bankrupt argument. How do we know this? Just listen to the words of those that support it. There’s no reason to intentionally lie to people unless you have an ulterior motive and something to hide. And Gun Control supporters lie as a matter of standard operating procedure.

    1. gun-control t**ts for confiscation: try it out yourself, see how well you do & let us know. or better yet, tell us when and where so we can live-cam it all. you know, publicity and “public safety” @ the same time.

    2. David Hogg is the new Hitler youth promoting the extreme far left ideology. However, I’ve read articles that said he is from Kalifornia and was there. What if the bad guy used a truck and started running students down? Would there be a call to ban trucks? Most of these gun banning cults are funded by Bloomberg, Soros, the U.N., and American hating foreign governments. Don’t forget during WW2, Japan was planning on invading the west coast and Germany the east coast. But they were afraid of all the gun owning Americans who would fight them off. Nowadays, the sheep in Kalifornia would welcome them will open arms as their saviors! There are sheep in this country that would like the government to run the country like North Korea does.wow. Most of these gun banning cults and hunting banning cults are run by big city, rich women libbers with big mouths. These same women a 100 years ago pushed for prohibition, that it would make everything just wonderful. What they got was thousands dying from homemade booze, booze running gangs, Al Capone, the mafia and underground bars serving booze to everyone including children. So now they want to ban all guns. Why don’t they stay home and take care of their 12 cats?

    3. Sean Davis said it best at the time – “This week’s gun control argument in a nutshell: because government failed at every level, you need to have your rights curtailed…by the government that just failed at every level.” ([email protected])

    4. If you dig into the Virginia Tech shooting you’ll find that the shooter was only able to obtain two Glock magazines with a greater than ten round capacity (what the gun came with from the factory), so he just brought more of the gun grabbed approved 10 round mags. He fired 174 rounds, a grand total of 30 of which came from magazines with greater than 10 capacity, and that’s assuming that those were emptied, which is possible.

      But facts don’t fit the narrative. Overwhelm the opposition with numbers? What about the 900,000 to 3 million defensive gun uses that happen every year in the US? That’s anywhere from 900,000 to 3 million rapes, armed robberies, beatings, and murders that do not happen EVERY YEAR because citizens have guns. Think that outweighs the ~8000 murders done with guns every year? You want to talk numbers, I’m game. How many times since 1934 has a legally owned machine gun been used in a crime? I’ll save you some googling; twice. Twice in 85 years since registration and enhanced background checks were made MANDATORY for all machineguns, and 33 years since the sale of newly manufactured machine guns to citizens was banned outright. And one was by a Kansas City police officer who used a MAC10 to murder an informant. So you literally have as much chance of being murdered by a police officer as you do of being murdered by a citizen with a legally owned machine gun.

      1. Of course the end goal of the left is the restriction of all firearms. That’s why they push any and all gun laws. Incrementalism.

    5. In looking at the picture I have to think that any parent that allows their kids to be anywhere close to Viet lying Bloominthaw or slippery Menendez should be brought up on charges of child neglect or something. The corruption these two have should be kept away from young minds.

    6. Paraphrasing and expanding a previously noted quotation: I agree with removing dangerous weapons from unstable people. Let’s start with typewriters, computers, microphones and politicians’ votes.

    7. What’s amazing is the Parkland Shooter was known to or reported to the FBI, Local LEO, Local school officials, local health care providers and supposed friends of his violent behavior. He bragged that he was going to shoot up a school through social media, yet no action was taken. Yet we hear of no chanting that these agencies should have done something long before he decided to strike, why? All we hear now is ban the guns and that’ll be the end all solution.

      1. yup. At least FOUR crimes known to have been committed, each of them disqualifyinf for gun possession. But the school district and sheriffs decided the $Mn54prize for reducing their ARREST rate never mind the CRIME rate continued to get worse. But had they formally charged him with ANY ONE of those four “incidents” and reported it to NICS as REQUIRED by law, he never could have bought those rifles he had.

        So they want to punish you and I because THEY failed to do what THE LAW requries them to do, and people got killed. HOW is that OUR fault?

        And WHY are these facts NOT part of the narrative?

      2. If that is the case Get out, then regardless what we call it: ERPOs, Fed Flag Law, or this: “Hello 911, there is a person that I am concerned he is out to hurt someone”; We need for all us to be vigilant. See It, Hear It, Report It. (SiHiRi)
        “Sah-Hi-Ree”.

        1. Please see the above Sean Davis quote. Government has just failed at every level—so let them do something unconstitutional? That’s not an answer.

    8. They have perfected the art of getting the uninformed terrorized and mobilized as foot soldiers for their cause. They have hundreds of millions of dollars at their disposal from leftist elites who want to keep the average citizen “under control”. They have abundant free media exposure and promotion from the leftist networks and pop culture useful idiots. They have control over a large portion of education. All of that allows them to push their agenda forward on nothing but fabricated facts and raw emotions.

      We have the 2nd Amendment, MAYBE SCOTUS, the internet, NRA, a handful of middle sized organizations, and state organizations to fight back. Even with the NRA, our financial backing is weaker. Like the war on terror, this war will never end. Unlike the war on terror, I fear we, the good guys, are the guerilla fighters having to learn to use determination, grit, unconventional tactics, and limited resources to keep a superior force at bay.

    9. The Agenda is to eliminate the fire arms of legal law abiding citizens, The White collar left criminals and their useful idiots, are paving a dangerous highway to a tyrannical event.
      “Seemingly Utopian pacifists are free to profess their love of a weapon-free world, but they must start by disarming the evil, criminal and tyrannical. Disarming the public is a vent for their twisted fear and hatred, a grotesque affront to freedom, and unacceptable. Disarming an innocent person is an act of violence.”

      “Guns save lives. Guns stop crime. Guns are why America is still free.”

      Anti-constitutionalism sense of morality is situational, based on incident and emotion, instead of rooted in God’s word and law.
      Anti-constitutionalism stands for nothing. The Anti-Constitutionalists’ situation determines their support for an issue and their emotions rule, not reason and rationality.
      Moreover, they recognize the contradiction, but still cling to their situational justice. Situational justice is the tool of dictators, tyrants, despots, and unjust, unrighteous monarchs. It has no place in a free constitutional republic. In which the United States of America is……………….

    10. We in NJ are so proud of our two senators Farticus and the pedafile. How could anything go wrong. Oops along came Fearless Phil. The downhill spiral accelerates.

    11. They’re were also multiply opportunities from the fbi, sheriff Israel and his corrupt broward county sheriff department, broward school board and Florida social services to prevent this incident from happening in the first place but the powers that be didn’t want to do their jobs right.

      This incident also proves that what the point of more laws when the powers that be refuse to properly do their jobs especially when said agencies are ripe with incompetence and corruption. And as more news about the school, it’s staff and the back comes out its becoming clear that one can’t help but wonder if this incident was deliberately allowed to happen.
