The media in this country are scum bags.   I am talking about both sides.  The the fact that there are "sides" proves my point.  They are supposed to be neutral but that has never been the case.   However I am talking about the current trend to use the kids involved in the Florida School shooting as spokesmen on an issue they know very little about.   Most are just parroting their parents view and if not they are repeating the views of their peer group.

At that age I of course knew all the answers, so I thought.  Truth was I didn't even know what the damn questions were.  To use me as a spokesman on any issue of such importance would have be comical at best.  

It is good these kids got to speak about this as that is important after a traumatic event.  But on National Television, at the white house and on every media service?   There is nothing a 14 or 15 year old kid can add to this conversation that is news worthy as they can't even own a gun and I can bet most don't even know the history of our country and why the 2nd Amendment was so important.  They have no idea of the conditions of millions around the world who live under tyrannical rule and of course in countries where personal ownership of firearms is illegal so they have no means to fight back at the government that has enslaved them.   The majority of these kids don't know shit and many are drama queens that over react to every little aspect of their perfect world as if it is the end of the world.   Not all of course, some are far advanced for their age but they are not being selected for this because of their knowledge, they are being selected by media scum based on which side of the issue they are on.

The parents who let them be used are shameless people and I imagine they themselves are imposing their believe and opinions of the issue on their children.   So they see this as them being able to speak out through their kids.  So they are also using their children as pawns.

If I see one more 14 year old kid on TV telling me that I should not own a gun I am going to chew up the remaining part of my liver.   I also don't want to see them voicing the other side until such time as they are old enough to know and even more important understand how critical this subject is to our freedoms.

Yes, the parents should be speaking out, those that lost children and those that have children traumatized by this horrific event.   I will listen to them and cry with them.   I can understand their pain and hope I never experience it.   I do not have to agree with their solutions or who they put the responsibility on to grieve with them.

There is tremendous outrage in this country because a gun was used to kill children.  I understand.   I see one side blaming the gun and not the criminal who used it.   Where is their outrage that people are in this country illegally are also killing our children?  Why would this not invoke the small response?  Illegals are killing our children, raping them and worse.   Where is that rage?   How ironic is it that the same people who use incidents like this and use children as pawns are the same ones that protect illegals, refuse to work with our Immigration Officers and stand in direct opposition to our Federal Laws.
I have seen parents of children killed by Illegals on TV stating their case.   I have not seen the minor children who are the brothers and sisters of the children killed being used so on this subject there has been reasonable coverage with no miss use of Children.

State your believes, stand your ground but don't use children as pawns.

Clearly your experience is different than mine, because when I was 14, 15, 16 etc.  I knew the answer to everything.  As I have gotten older I guess I have gotten stupider because I now feel I don't know the answer to hardly anything.

Ditto, same thing put differently.   So sad to see these kids used by both sides.

100 % agreement with you on this, JD; it's sad to see the way they are used by the media.
