According to many gun-control advocates, 18-year-olds are too immature to handle guns – but are mature enough to advise us on gun policy. Thus we're told we must "listen to the voices" of the young Parkland shooting survivors. Not only that, we're not to question or oppose them because they're young, they're survivors and, by golly, because it's absolutely devastating to the anti-gun agenda!
There's something truly reprehensible about this situation, and it's not conservatives criticizing the positions of activist Parkland students such as David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez. It's that liberals are using the students as human props and human shields, letting them throw the punches and then condemning the assailed if they dare defend themselves.
Well, sorry, but as I wrote years ago in "The Grieving Activist," if you want to grieve, grieve. If you want to play politics, play politics.
But my sympathy for grieving ends when the use of grief as a political battering ram begins.
