Blue checkmark anti-gunners: If I die in a mass shooting, POLITICIZE my death

Liberal anti-gunners wasted no time pushing for gun control while emergency personnel attended to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting victims.

To make things even MORE interesting, a few liberal anti-gunners made their position known. If they ever died in a mass shooting, they would want the gun control movement to politicize their death.

I am a military veteran, a proud Texan, and a gun owner, and I am sick and tired of seeing “thoughts and prayers” tweets from politicians who clearly care far more about their NRA campaign contributions than making this a safer country for our children. #Parkland

And with all this in mind, let me be clear: if I should die in a mass shooting, don’t wait one second to politicize my death in demanding gun control. Don’t allow the @NRA to cite respect for my death in justifying silence and inaction.#Parkland #GunControlNow https://t.co/5whI6t0Uee

Is this your way of trying to be noble or are you saying that it’s okay to politicize someone’s death while they’re still bleeding?

If I die in a mass shooting I want you to politicize the fuck out of it. #Parkland #GunControlNow

Is this so people will remember your name and your legacy or would it really be for the greater good of humanity?

The sad part is…a lot of gun control advocates felt the same way as these two.

Yes. If I am murdered in a mass shooting feel free to politicize my death. Candlelight vigils help healing – but peacefully taking to the streets and demanding #GunControlNow every time there is a mass shooting may have more effect on politicians.

Another person who wants to act like a sacrificial lamb.

Me too. I’m with Charlotte. 👯‍♀️🇺🇸

Is this another #MeToo campaign?

If this happened to me? I’d want everyone at my wake, in the church, at the grave to be talking about it. I’d want whoever gives my eulogy to rant about it from the pulpit.

Instead of remembering your life you would want your entire funeral to be one giant political movement. Got it.

Me too. Politicize the hell out of my death if it is part of a mass shotting.

— Jen Blanchard (@JenABlanchard) February 14, 2018

Make sure you add that in your will.

I feel the same way. I want it to be as political as hell! Raise holy hell about this.

Again, it’s about YOU and not the epidemic you are supposedly fighting.

EXACTLY! This is not about politics this is about humanity.

Except you can’t have humanity without politics. They go hand-in-hand.

At least someone tried making them see their statement is foolish.

You’ll be singing a different tune had you lived in Mexico as I have… I witnessed a kidnapping epidemic and a drug war that ruined many a vibrant city’s nightlife… I blame the perpetrator, NOT the NRA nor anyone else…

— David Nassau (@DavidENassau) February 14, 2018

Precisely.

Okay, but facets of Mexican government are/were complicit with the drug cartels, providing cover, which only serves to ramp up the violence. Let’s not conflate the issues please.

Your logic is flawed.

I’m telling you how it is because I’ve lived it… it shows that gun control doesn’t work, and Mexico is a case in point (one gun store in the WHOLE country, 29,000 murders last year)

— David Nassau (@DavidENassau) February 14, 2018

Case in point: if someone wants to commit a crime with a gun, they’ll go to any means necessary to obtain one.

Again, the law enforcement environments are substantially different, correct?

— teemcee (@teemcee) February 14, 2018

You’re still missing the point.

When you have friends and people you know and care about kidnapped and held for ransom— often the kidnappers include people who are supposed to protect and serve you—, you’d be singing a different tune…

BAM.
