Santorum Slams Kids For Holding Anti-Gun March… Offers Alternative Activity

The anti-gun march that took place this weekend, which was undoubtedly paid for by liberal billionaire lobbyists like George Soros, was nothing more than emotional teens who know nothing about firearms who also just wanted to be able to take trendy SnapChat videos to share with friends.

Of course, if you say that out loud, then you must be a jerk because they’re kids, right? Well, we don’t care. The last thing we want is a bunch of Tide Pod eating teenagers shaping policy revolving around the Second Amendment. No thanks.

Rick Santorum had an idea for the students to get better use of their time…

Politico reports:

Former GOP Pennsylvania senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Sunday that students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, should‘ve responded to the massacre of their classmates by “taking CPR classes” instead of “looking to someone else to solve their problem.”

In an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Santorum was arguing gun laws wouldn’t make schools safer on their own when he made the comments, and said the students should instead focus on ways to help respond to a mass shooter instead of advocating for tougher laws.

“How about kids instead of looking to someone else to solve their problem, do something about maybe taking CPR classes or trying to deal with situations that when there is a violent shooter [so] that you can actually respond to that?” he said during a panel discussion.

Santorum’s comments came a day after hundreds of thousands of people, including high school students from around the country, protested at the March For Our Lives in Washington and at satellite marches around the country. Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School organized the march to advocate for stricter gun control laws.

Santorum went on to suggest that “phony gun laws” wouldn’t keep students safe.

“They didn’t take action to say, ‘How do I, as an individual, deal with this problem? How am I going to do something about stopping bullying within my own community? What am I going to do to actually help respond to a shooter?,‘” he said. “Instead of going and protesting and saying, ‘Oh, someone else needs to pass a law to protect me.’”
