In response to the shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead, a number of students at the school began planning an anti-gun march in Washington, D.C. on March 24th. The students supposedly organizing the march, dubbed the March for Our Lives, have become overnight celebrities, with millions of Twitter followers between all of them.
While they have claimed that they support the Second Amendment, and only want to ban “assault rifles,” a Tweet from march organizer Jaclyn Corin either disproves that claim, or proves their ignorance when it comes to firearms.
The Truth is, we want to ban guns that can fire 160 rounds in 7 minutes. https://t.co/euAV7Z5xbc

The Tweet is in response to an NRA TV video asserting that the anti-gun wing in Congress wants to ban all guns. In response, Corin stated that herself and the organizers of the march “want to ban guns that can fire 160 rounds in 7 minutes.”
That brings up the question. What guns can fire 160 rounds in 7 minutes, and therefore are on the list of guns that march organizers are looking to ban?
Here is a video of a semi-automatic pistol firing 1,000 rounds in 14 minutes. This one is sure to be put on the banned list.
Or what about the Marlin 30-30 Lever Action? A true American classic. Banned.
Pump shotguns? Banned as well.
We could go on and on. But the truth is, virtually every gun with a few notable exceptions (muzzleloaders) could rather easily fire 160 rounds within 7 minutes, and certainly all semi-automatic guns could reach that threshold. So as it appears from the Tweet above, the organizers of the March for Our Lives support banning virtually all guns.
