David Hogg Appearance at Penn State Prompts Pro-Second Amendment Protest
“If gun-free zones work, how come 98% of mass shootings happen in gun free zones?”
Students who support the Second Amendment should get more organized on college campuses. Imagine if we saw this happening more often.

Pro-Second Amendment march at Penn State counters appearance by David Hogg
In response to an appearance by anti-gun activist and soon-to-be Harvard student David Hogg, pro-Second Amendment students at Penn State University put together a march for their own cause on January 18.
Dubbed “Come and Take It” and organized by the PSU College Republicans’ Aidan Mattis, the march included demonstrators who carried American flags and signs which read “If gun-free zones work, how come 98% of mass shootings happen in gun free zones?” and “Gun rights are women’s rights.”
According to the Daily Collegian, Mattis said he organized the protest “partially [because] of Hogg’s opinions and partially [due to] the Student Programming Association’s absolute refusal to ever bring a conservative to speak.”
Mattis is also the president of the campus chapter of Young Americans for Liberty.
The march attracted counter-protesters, some of whom interrupted Mattis when he was speaking to the crowd. One, PSU student Callie Maier, said she “felt the need” to attend this protest in particular: “I felt like it was my duty to point out that life is more important than guns,” she said.

to the full extent allowed by law.
“I felt like it was my duty to point out that life is more important than guns,” she said.”
Tell that to women who have been murdered when they had no access to self defense.
I am so sick of the fact-free, emotionally driven one liners that people like to drop in political discussions.
This is just one example of the usual exploitative BS that the losers spew on a daily basis when their arguments fly in the face of facts.
So …… if “life” is so important, how about joining the march to stop all abortions?
‘Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley with her pantyhose tied around her neck is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to the police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.’
Life is more important than guns, just as it’s more important than medicine, food, and shelter. All these things exist for the purpose of preserving life, not the other way around. Life’s importance is precisely why we need guns, medicine, food, and shelter.
