Parkland activist Emma Gonzalez: ‘Go serve your f*****g country’ if you want to shoot a ‘weapon’

While participating in the Education Writers Association’s Education Week forum on Thursday, Parkland anti-gun activist Emma Gonzalez once again advocated gun confiscation and said those who want to shoot a weapon should join the Army.

“It’s just cheaper to take away the guns that aren’t imperative to living in America. You don’t need an AR-15 to protect yourself in bed from a robber at night. You don’t need an AR-15 to have fun at a shooting range,” she said.

“Go join the Army if you want to have fun shooting off a weapon. And serve your f*****g country. Excuse my language,” Gonzalez added to applause and laughter.

Here’s video, tweeted by Caleb Hull, senior editor of the Independent Journal Review:

That settles it, especially since she dropped the f-bomb, right?

Hardly.  And quite a few responded to her profane demand.

Hull responded:

Others weighed in as well:


I have to concur.  In the ten years I served in the Marine Corps, I was never once issued an AR-15.


Besides, as Twitchy and others pointed out, it’s not the “Bill of Needs,” it’s the “Bill of Rights,” designed specifically to protect us from the likes of her and her fellow demagogues.

Twitchy added:

“You don’t need…” are three words which have launched countless arguments, but in a free country, it’s really not up to the government or a bunch of teenagers to determine what people “need” let alone what they just plain want.

One person offered another suggestion to Gonzalez:

We agree.
