Who knew it was that simple? When the nation is faced with a seemingly insoluble problem, turn it over to a bunch of mad-as-hell youngsters whose brain pans aren’t even fully developed and watch what happens.
That seems to be the gist of a tweet by MSNBC contributor and former Democratic fundraiser Scott Dworkin, who wrote on Twitter:
Look at the gigantic crowd of teens at Union Station in DC headed to the US Capitol to protest. Wow. These kids are gonna save us all.
To let everyone know how deeply he grasps the problem himself, he added the hashtag
#BanMachineGuns to his tweet.
Because everyone knows that all it takes to fix a problem is to tweet hashtags. Right?

Dworkin wasn’t the only one to fawn all over these children, who are no doubt being used as pawns in the anti-gun left’s war on the Second Amendment.
Tonight Show host Stephen Colbert, for example, ran a clip of teen celebrity du jour David Hogg lambasting adults, then said:
He’s right. The adults aren’t cutting it anymore. I think we need to change the voting age. Until we do something about guns, you can’t vote if you’re over 18. (Emphasis added)
So, Ben Bowles asked at Liberty Unyielding, what are some of the ideas the kids are advancing to end incidents like the one last week in Florida?
He answered: “Here’s what Alex Wind, one of the survivors of the Parkland shooting, said in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” (via Vox):
We’re marching because it’s not just schools. It’s movie theaters, it’s concerts, it’s nightclubs. This kind of stuff can’t just happen. You know, we are marching for our lives, we’re marching for the 17 lives we lost. And we’re marching for our children’s lives and our children’s children and their children.
Bowles has more, here, including his own conclusion that pretty much all these children have done is “is rail out against adults…”
Which, in our experience, is pretty much what teenage children tend to do…
