    My kids are marching in CA22 under threat of being truant.

    Why do republicans love money and guns more than people?
    It has nothing to do with loving 'money and guns more than people'.

    We're not dumb. We know what many on the left - those who are enamored with Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and Dictators - would do if they were able to disarm the United States.

    Only criminals and the entitled few, which the left KNOWS will be themselves, will have guns and everyone else will do as they are told, or else.

    We see what they say and how they act, and they have more characteristics of the above although they defensively claim that it is Republicans who are the "wannabe fascists and dictators".

    And we know that banning the AR15 or banning an entire class of firearms will not stop school shootings and when the next shooting happens with a different firearm then liberals will be right back demanding THAT one be banned, and so it goes until they get what they want, one step at a time.

    If Democrats cared about the kids, rather than just wanting guns banned, they'd be interested in ways to secure the schools, and they'd be MAD at the FBI, law enforcement, the sheriffs department and the school for allowing the many many warning signs and warnings from family and friends to go by without doing anything. But they aren't...it's all guns.

    1. School policy isn't made up on the spot.

    If your child receives any consequence other than unexcused absences for the classes missed, get an attorney. Make the school officials go to their school board and add new rules against leaving school for this purpose.

    You can vote out the school board if they do.

    Short of that, they can't be permitted to treat your child's absence any differently than if they had car trouble and missed class. The absence is just "unexcused".
    That's a liberal for you. Demanding that THEY don't have to follow the rule, and when they don't that there shouldn't be any consequences for them.

    2. I work in the district and its blood red Devin Nunes district.

    The board will back the school, not the students.
    There's a greater chance that her kids will be killed by a driving drunk, a drug overdose, a car accident or a drunk driver than by a school shooter. But those don't matter because it's all about banning guns, not keeping kids 'safe'.

    I suspect DU-Moron "onecaliberal" is speaking ignorantly/carelessly/lying. One day of unexcused won't result in a truancy charge. DU-moron "rainin" takes DU-Moron "onecaliberal's" claim as true, but mentions what might actually happen, an unexcused absence.

    CA-22 is Devin Nunes' Congressional District, BTW

    My sister and her 18 year old daughter had an interesting conversation about this, as my niece was planning to participate in this event and referred to it as a protest. The school is allowing it to happen, so my sister told her "it's not a protest unless you are risking something-arrest or punishment by the school. When your principal tells you it's okay, it's not a protest.". And she should know, she went to MSU where the students staged a sit in when the school took Captain Crunch out of the cafeterias.

    I'm curious, how would these DUmmy parents act if their kids were hurt or killed by a passing motorist during their protest march? Would they hold the school accountable since they were supposed to be in class when the accident occurred?

    And how about that free bus-ride to DC in a couple weeks when kids will be busy hooking-up and quasi-partying... until the media's cameras arrive.

    Not judging. Just being real. I was like that at their age. Any excuse to avoid school and have fun.

    But I eventually learned commitment... and how to spot manufactured commitment.

    So a protest is defined by the people against whom you are protesting and not the act itself? So protesting a law is not a protest if your principal agrees with you and allows the protest?

    I disagree entirely with these students screaming their guts out over a Soros-backed plan to get rid of our 2nd amendment, but I do believe it is a protest.

    This whole thing is a left wing / progressive stunt to keep the pity party going, and to rally support for gun bans.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.

    No, my sister defines it by the personal risk taken by the protestors. My niece was not risking punishment by the school or in any legal sense. I think at her school, the principal made a pre-emptive strike so that it wouldn't become a big screaming match between liberal and conservative students.
