Following reports of a shooting in Maryland, student “organizers” of the March for Our Lives planned for this Saturday began tweeting their outrage. That outrage quickly turned to silence when reports came out that a school resource officer shot and killed the shooter before he could do more than injure two students.
Just as reports were coming in, Emma Gonzales, who is perhaps the most well know anti-gun student activist Tweeted out her sympathies along with a call to action.
We are Here for you, students of Great Mills 💗 together we can stop this from ever happening again https://t.co/bkzL1FcVgu

David Hogg, who has also been extremely vocal, re-tweeted a tweet from his classmate Jaclyn Corin, but has otherwise been silent.
Less than a WEEK ago Great Mills High School students walked out with us to protest gun violence…now they’re experiencing it for themselves. The state of our country is disgusting – I’m so sorry, Great Mills.

Once reports began coming out that the shooter was stopped by an armed resource officer, the Tweets stopped, and none of the students chose to acknowledge the officer’s heroic actions.
Gonzales has been a vocal advocate against having guns in schools. In an interview with 60 Minutes, her main point against teachers being armed was that her school ran out of paper.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
