Parkland Students Take To Twitter After Being Given Clear Backpacks Instead Of Gun Control!

Filed under: TwitterTeensEducationalViral: KidsViral: News

Congress can't seem to get its head around passing the common sense gun safety laws approved by the majority of Americans (seriously, some polls have over 90% in favor of universal background checks!).

Instead, students have to deal with school safety "solutions" many consider to be, frankly, a joke.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School passed out clear backpacks to its students on Monday, leading many to unleash their frustration with the half-measure on Twitter.

Some were earnest, some sarcastic. Multiple students pointed out their new procedures essentially turned their school into an airport check-in.

Many students decorated their bags with the $1.05 price tags from the March For Our Lives — that's the amount they've calculated Florida Senator Marco Rubio gets from the NRA for each student enrolled in his state.

Emma Gonzalez Did Not Tear Up A Copy Of The Constitution, Losers!

no title

We are so sick of seeing people bullying child survivors of a school mass shooting.

This is exactly what happened when a *Photoshopped* picture of Emma Gonzalez seemingly ripping up a copy of the Constitution popped up online via a "free speech social network" and subsequently went viral.

The original image for Teen Vogue showed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student tearing a paper gun-range target sheet in half, as she continues her fight for gun control after losing 17 of her classmates and teachers.

The mag's chief content officer Phillip Picardi made it clear on Sunday that the image was fake, by tweeting:

If You Watch One MARCH FOR OUR LIVES Speech, Make It This One.

Filed under: InspirationSad SadTeens

Emma Gonzalez has been one of the most visible — and most attacked — proponents of gun control after surviving last month's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

And at Saturday's March For Our Lives protest, she gave one of the most emotionally devastating speeches we've ever seen.

If you watch one gun control speech, make it this one.

'You Make Me Proud Of My Country Again': George Clooney Writes Moving Letter To Parkland Students

Filed under: George ClooneyTeensAmal Clooney

On the eve of the March For Our Lives protest against gun violence, George Clooney is giving students one last bit of advice.

The Ocean's 11 star, who donated an amazing $500,000 to the march already, was asked by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students for an interview.

See, Emma Dowd, Lauren Newman, and Rebecca Schneid, who edit the school newspaper, The Eagle Eye, were given the opportunity to guest edit The Guardian to cover the protest.

They asked George to give them an interview (they got ones with Bernie Sanders and Marco Rubio), but he told them while he and Amal Clooney will be marching in support, he doesn't feel it's right for adults to take the stage anymore.

MTV, BET, Nickelodeon, & More Went Quiet For 17 Minutes Today…

Filed under: TV NewsMTVDonald TrumpViral: NewsSocial Issues

Donald Trump may be too busy trying to blame media once again for mass shootings (anything but guns, right?), but one of the biggest media companies in America is showing its support for the people most affected.

While students around the country were participating in a National Walkout Day to protest the inaction of the government in the wake of school shootings, MTV, Nickelodeon, BET, Paramount Network, CMT, TV Land, and Comedy Central joined in — by shutting off.

At 10 a.m. EST, all of Viacom's channels suspended programming during the 17 minutes of silence remembering those lost in the Parkland shooting one month ago.

During that time, MTV also handed over control of its social media pages to participating students; the network will also cover the March For Our Lives rally on March 24.

Viacom is also currently working on more gun violence awareness initiatives. Read more about their plans to help out HERE.

Actual GOP Candidate Calls Parkland Shooting Survivor A 'Skinhead Lesbian' In Series Of Deleted Tweets!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikTeensViral: NewsControversy

no title

You probably already know Emma González.

She's one of the survivors of last month's shooting in Parkland, Florida. One of the teens who have bravely walked onto the national stage refusing to let the gun debate die as it always does.

Using her knack for leadership honed as the President of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School's Gay-Straight Alliance, she has helped turn the fed up masses into a real movement.

Video: Watch Trump Tell Survivors He Is 'Very Strongly' Considering Arming Teachers

A name you probably don't know is Leslie Gibson, an NRA member and GOP candidate running unopposed for Maine's 57th District, who decided to insult her on Twitter, writing:

"There is nothing about this skin head lesbian that impresses me and there is nothing that she has to say unless you're a frothing at the mouth moonbat."

He also said she wasn't a shooting survivor because she was in a "different part of the school" and called her friend and fellow activist David Hogg a "bald faced liar."

The tweets have since been deleted, but of course it's the Internet where nothing is ever really gone. See the receipts (below)!

Disgusting! NRA Spokeswoman Dana Loesch Says Many In Media 'Love Mass Shootings'!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

no title

It's that time of year. The end of February marks Spring when a young man's fancy turns to love. And when shady lobbyists speak openly to their right-wing allies.

Yep, the National Rifle Association has descended on the Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual rally where all the worst Republicans can get together and talk about hating immigrants and the poor without fear of being disagreed with.

Video: Trump Is 'Very Strongly' Considering Arming Teachers!

This year, the hot-button issue of the moment is of course gun control, and the NRA's Dana Loesch decided to take a shotgun to any teensy shred of good will she garnered by attending CNN's Town Hall meeting with the survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

How? Oh, by implying the media want there to be MORE shootings! She said:
