This young gentleman was standing up for our Country and our Flag and has now had death threats, lost college offers and been falsely portrayed in the media.

We need to spread this thread and get involved. It makes absolutely no sense for a young man to lose his options for a career all because he stood up for our Country and Flag.

@POTUS

@RealJamesWoods
For any college to drop his offer, they are either biased or scared of liberal backlash. These colleges need to be defunded in order for them to realize their purpose is not about politics but about education and preparing these kids for their careers/lives.

It's amazing the things that constantly click when you read as much about politics as I do. I particularly read about the
Guns
Or
Pay party and their corrupt practices. And you must see how so many things are linked. And at the centre, time and time again the NRA come up.
Now we know that most Republican Presidents support the NRA. But changed occurred around the assassination attempt on Reagan, almost killing press secretary James Brady. This in turn made activists of James and his wife Sarah which works result in the Brady Bill of Background
Checks. Reagan, a firm believer in the right to bear arms urged Congress to enact the Brady Bill. Around this time, there was a massive change in the direction of the #TheRepublican party, coincidence maybe, but the GOP began to blatantly be seen as the Guardians Of Privilege.

I’ve spent my entire professional career putting people back together after trauma, especially gun trauma. 19 years.

When I say I’m tired of it, I’ve earned it.
When I say I find the vast majority of gun owners insecure, immature & lacking empathy, I’m speaking from experience.
Let’s talk about avoidance. It’s what we do when we don’t want to do something, but can’t just say we don’t want to. It’s having a headache instead of going out with a difficult friend, or pretending your mother’s voicemail got garbled instead of admitting you just X’ed it.
As a culture, we’ve been avoiding the gun discussion for decades. We talk about metal detectors in schools, background checks, or hardened safe rooms. When we talk about these, we’re not talking about the simple premise that a gun is a tool that does nothing but kill.

Huge applause from gun forum crowd when @SenBillNelson mentions banning AR-15s. Gonna be a tough audience for Rubio
A few boos from #StudentsStandUp audience when @marcorubio is introduced
Rubio tells father of slain student who challenged him to admit that "guns were a factor" in last week's mass shooting that he is going to "repeat what I said" -- there are more factors than gun control. #StudentsDemandAction
