    They are kids. They know about the same as high schoolers everywhere.
    Yep.

But I think the script stuff is laughable, and I bet Parkland’s testing well above the state avg.
    By script, I mean the narrative talking points that has been spewed for years by the gun control crowd. I'm not one of those that believe that there is this conspiracy where they literally scripted every interview.

    So, you're saying the left found the smartest of the school shooting survivors to represent them?

    Also since conservatives and the Alt-Right tend to go with scorched earth tactics, with personal attacks and conspiracy theories about any opponent, they gave Parkland kids a ton of exposure as many conservative luminaries made asses of themselves trying to shut up shooting survivors.

    I donít think that happens very frequently, which is why so many school shootings die in news cycle after a week or so.
    Wait, so the kids like Hogg and Emma Whatsherface and a few others go scorched earth on everyone that disagreed with them, and when they get pushback, its the alt-right going scorched earth? You best go back and look at their twitter feeds and clips of the stuff they were saying before you make the claim they didn't give worse than they got. And it started with that shit show of a town hall that CNN put on where Hogg was attacking Dana Leosch and Rubio. And then, what about the pro-second amendment kids and parents that got less than nothing in terms of air time? Why do you think that was huh? You may not have an anti gun view and it would be nice if that was the case. But you sure take the truth to the left side of any political issue we have to discuss without giving any quarter. At least some of us here admit when something happens we don't like on our political side.
