Kids Who Don’t Want to Take Your Guns March Because They Really Want to Take Your Guns. [VIDEO]

Did you wear an orange shirt over the weekend? You didn’t? In case you missed it, it was #WearOrange weekend to mark National Gun Violence Awareness Day on June 1. But because this involved the youth — or “yutes,” as Joe Pesci would say — and it’s summer, they made it a weekend event.

So once again kids across America marched against guns. Or rather, against “gun violence,” but we know the score, don’t we? They really want to take your guns.

One of the big rallies happened in New York City, where thousands of anti-gun people marched across Brooklyn Bridge in the ‘Youth Over Guns’ March.

Someone managed to get access to a coffin.

And because this was New York, and not some no-name town in Flyover Country, celebrities showed up. Like old reliable leftwing actresses Susan Sarandon and Julianne Moore.

Yes, that Julianne Moore — who lectured “The View” audiences last year that ‘gun control is not a Second Amendment issue’ but a ‘safety issue.’

Somewhere 2A Father George Mason is facepalming.

There were some, well, interesting signs.

Like this girl, who. . . well, bless her heart:

Honey, the government does fund the arts — with an organization called the National Endowment for the Arts. The NRA is a private organization supported by its members. The government doesn’t fund it.

And this is another reason why we should’t give teens the vote. But I digress.

Then there was Ramon Contreras, one of the march’s founders, who said fixing gun violence requires mo’ money, mo’ money. For schools, naturally:

“Some of the roots, it goes to a lack of funding, and lack of effort towards our public school educational system and lack of funding towards local gun violence prevention groups who work on this issue for years now and work on the ground with students, and they are getting the funding and attention that they need.”

Say, whaaat?

Perhaps what Contreras doesn’t know is that there is an existing program called “School Shield,” which focuses on beefing up school security. Moreover, schools can request grant money through School Shield to defray costs.

But hold on! School Shield is a program from the evil NRA! Can’t have that now, can we?

Finally, there was this statement by a 51-year-old mom who participated:

“I’m not against people owning guns for protection but I am against people owning semi-automatic weapons.”

Lady, you’re either ignorant of what a semi-automatic is, or you’re lying. And I’m leaning towards the latter.

Why? Because a recent survey of self-identified Democrats showed that 82% favored some sort of ban on semi-automatic weapons.

Also on Saturday, liberal Vox pushed gun confiscation:

Never mind that some Aussie pundits — including Joe Hockey, the Australian Ambassador to the U.S. — say that their style of gun control wouldn’t work in the States. Gun control enthusiasts just love them some gun confiscation.

Like what’s going to happen to the people of Deerfield, IL, in two weeks:

Then there’s Chris King, a Florida gubernatorial candidate, who’s getting creative in his anti-gun proposals. You see, not only does he want to ban ‘assault weapons,’ he also wants to put extra taxes on firearms, and ammo, too.

So yes, let’s punish legal gun owners and tax the hell out of them, making it more onerous to own a gun. It’s “for the children.”

So will criminals be paying those taxes on their weapons? I think we know the answer to that one.

But “we don’t want to take your guns,” they say. “We just want common sense gun reform,” they say. Right. And if you believe that, I might be able to swing you a sweet deal on that Brooklyn Bridge.

  • Mike Davis says:

    I think that this is further evidence of the corrosive nature of both our educational system where our children are being slow-marinated in progressive orthodoxy and social media where that orthodoxy is reinforced.

  • […] Victory Girls Blog: Kids Who Don’t Want to Take Your Guns March Because They Really Want to Take Your Guns. [VIDEO]. […]

  • Over at The Hill (, they’re running an article on the kiddies marching, and one of the embedded tweets has them saying “no justice, no peace”. So, either they’re mixing all their other SJW stuff with the gun grabbing, or they’re threatening violence if Someone Else doesn’t Do Something about “gun violence.” Liberal Logic.

  • CApatriot says:

    “Methinks thou dost protest too much.”

    These so-called, “protests,” are actually moving folks against them. If they really cared about lives, they would readily see that they are safer in the classroom or on the streets of Chicago, than they are in a liberal’s womb with 391,787 abortions so far this year. The liberal/pp womb is the most dangerous place in America.

  • Jim says:

    People [politicians and Green-Left] talk about the ”success” of Australian gun laws, but this Australian presentation about the rate of deaths by other means and factors other than guns may be of interest:

    Note that the use of guns to murder others has declined, but the use of knives has increased. This begs the question: do guns murder people or do people murder other people with whatever ”tool” they have at hand, e.g. the use of cars and trucks to kill people seems to be increasing around the world too. Acid is another tool used by some – this appears to be a weapon of choice on the sub-continent, i.e. India and Pakistan.

  • thomass says:

    Also; how did Australia’s gun confiscation work exactly? Statistically it has had no impact.

    They had very few shootings and mass shooting before the ban. They have very few now….

    • Jim says:

      “Also; how did Australia’s gun confiscation work exactly? Statistically it has had no impact.”

      The killing of 35 people in 1996 led to the gun ‘buy-back’ and tighter restrictions on legitimate gun owners. That mass killing gave impetus to the urban Left anti gun, anti hunting lobbies who take every possible opportunity to condemn anyone owning a gun, yet happily ignore the reality of [usually ethnic-based] criminal networks importing, stealing and even making their own guns. [Multi-culturalism is has been a real ”boon” to Australia; we have learned about the criminal proclivities of groups from other lands!] Unfortunately there was a mass murder-suicide a couple of weeks ago in Western Australia in which a man, reportedly clinically depressed, took his own guns and killed his family. As was to be expected this brought out the anti gun lobby making wacky and impossibly restrictive demands:

      In Australia gun owners are facing a continual battle against extremists of the urban left. [Remember gun owners in Australia are vetted by the Police and subject to tight control and random inspection.] Guns/gun ownership are just part of the attack by these Marxist/socialists who wish to turn the whole country into another ‘socialist peoples’ paradise’ – with the leftists in dictatorial control.

      Guard your right to have firearms.

  • Fen says:

    We can now buy a mill machine for $1500 that can produce as many AR15s as we want, unmarked unregistered non-traceable. Already over 10,000 of these machines have been sold to private citizens.

    This heralds the death of the gun control movement. You are never getting the guns. Period. Stand stop as nany pikes of dead corpses as you want, use all the dead kids you can find as props – we will NEVER give up our right to self-defense.

    So instead of beating your head against this wall, stop wasting everyone’s time money and energy and start looking for alternative ways to save the lives you claim to “care” so much about.

    Like allowing teachers to volunteer to conceal carry. Of course, you won’t. Because you don’t really care about dead kids, your goal is to reduce the number of armed civillians, not increase them.

    Give it up. We will NEVER surrender our firearms or our right to defend ourselves and our loved ones with lethal force. Find an alternate solution. Because every day you waste on gun control is another day gone that could have found solutions to save lives RIGHT NOW.

    Do it “For Teh Children” you claim to care so much about.

    • Scratchee says:

      You can also do it with a $100 drill press and milling bit. Or so I am told.

    • GWB says:

      produce as many AR15s as we want
      The ammo is currently the weak point. Producing firearms is pointless if you can’t also produce/acquire ammo.
      I’m certainly not saying it can’t be done. But that chokepoint is not being addressed at this point. (And, no, reloading doesn’t count, unless you’re producing your own brass and primers.)

      • steveH says:

        It’s going to take a looooooooong time to run through the stash of privately-owned ammunition if possession is outlawed.

        Alternatively: Outlawing legal possession of ammunition is going to work about as well as forbidding illicit drugs in maximum security prisons.

  • CaptDMO says:

    Fund arts, not the NRA?
    Oh, sweetie, let me mansplain….
    You see, the folks who privately fund the oldest Civil Rights Org. in the country ALSO fund “the arts”
    with every pay stub.
    Your pay stub…it’s that “receipt” that comes with your weekly pay check.
    Oh no sweetie, THOSE folks in “the arts” have their “expenses” tax exempt.
    Do you see now?

    • GWB says:

      Pfft. You think those kids have ever paid income tax? Puhlease. That would require a job, which would require responsibility.

  • Rick Caird says:

    “We just want common sense gun reform,”

    Common sense health care reform became ObamaCare which had neither commonality or sense associated with it. Whenever a lefty says “common sense” anything, they really mean full control and no sense at all.

    • GWB says:

      It produced the “Affordable Care Act”.
      To which I reply with my favorite Uhura line of all time: Sorry! Neither!

  • GWB says:

    “I’m not against people owning guns for protection but I am against people owning semi-automatic weapons.”
    Has this guy ever seen The Rifleman? Because Connors could spit lead almost as fast as any AR-15.
    Oh, and what this guy really means is “I’m against people owning effective weapons.”

    This crap – and its over-abundance – is why I’m all for a national divorce. The blues can keep the big cities, everywhere west of the Cascades, NJ, and everything northeast of PA. We’ll keep the rest of it. Let’s see who has more firearms deaths over the next 10 years.

  • Fox2! says:

    I think upstate NY would qualify as “red” rather than blue. Have to do some slicing and dicing, not just accepting current borders.

  • the last laugh says:

    Don’t worry useless idiot Bolshevik rats will get what they deserve as they are placed against the wall first.
