Liberals Recruit Kindergartners To Protest Gun Control

In their pursuit to eventually confiscate every gun right out of your house, liberals will stop at nothing along the way to get to that point. Not only have they exploited high school-aged children to push their ignorant agenda, they’re now indoctrinating them even younger.

A lot younger.

Wall Street Journal reports:

If children in kindergarten can practice active-shooter drills, then they can also walk out to call for safety, some parents and educators say.

Plans to protest on March 14, which began with high-school shooting survivors in Parkland, Fla., are spreading to include elementary schools. Schools are grappling with how to address the event with children as young as 5 years old and with finding ways for children who are too little to be told about school shootings to take part.

The protest calls for students nationwide to walk out of class at 10 a.m. for 17 minutes, one minute in honor of each victim at February’s shooting in Parkland.

Some of the most organized events are at schools with progressive traditions and parent bodies. At Manhattan Country School, a private school with a social justice mission in New York City, children in prekindergarten through fourth grade will sing the peace songs “If I Had a Hammer” and “Paz y Libertad.”

And at PS1 Pluralistic School in Santa Monica, Calif., elementary students wrote their wishes for a safer world on small pieces of rice paper, to be hung from a large piece of driftwood in a schoolwide ceremony. Children said they wished for houses for the homeless, kindness, an end to drought and more wishes. Although teachers didn’t mention anything about firearms, they were on at least one boy’s mind.

“I wish there were no guns so people couldn’t suffer,” said 8-year-old Gabriel Chibane. “It doesn’t make sense. Why shouldn’t they have a longer life instead of just a short life?”

In Utah, leaders of the statewide parent-teacher association are embracing a social-media campaign called #WhatsYour17. It encourages positive actions tied to the number of victims killed in Parkland.

“We’ve talked about reaching out and smiling at 17 new people or finding 17 new friends,” said Jeana Stockdale, president of the Utah PTA. “In elementary school, it could be asking someone new to play with you.” Each district can decide if and how to mark the day.

Deciding what to do is especially tricky at schools that include students with different stages of awareness. At the Ridgewood Avenue School in Glen Ridge, N.J., which serves third through sixth grades, Nicole Quinn, president of the Home & School Association that represents parents, said the debate is “coming down to an argument about when it’s appropriate to ruin our students’ innocence.”
