Former President Barack Obama wrote an article TIME Magazine’s Most Influential People for the pro-gun control Parkland children.
Gun owners will be extremely bewildered.
Obama wrote that students like Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg, “have the power so often inherent in youth: to see the world anew; to reject the old constraints, outdated conventions and cowardice too often dressed up as wisdom.”
The former president took aim at the NRA and its supporters in the piece as well.
“(B)y bearing witness to carnage, by asking tough questions and demanding real answers, the Parkland students are shaking us out of our complacency. The NRA’s favored candidates are starting to fear they might lose. Law-abiding gun owners are starting to speak out. As these young leaders make common cause with African Americans and Latinos—the disproportionate victims of gun violence—and reach voting age, the possibilities of meaningful change will steadily grow.”
