The Parkland teens pushing gun control still haven’t gone away. Emma Gonzalez recently said during a forum that if you want to shoot a gun like the AR-15, you should join the military. Apparently, no one told her that many law abiding American gun owners are also veterans.
Parkland activist says ‘go serve your f**king country’ if you want to carry a weapon
As we’ve mentioned before, the gun control activists who emerged from the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., seemed to zero in on two targets in particular: the NRA and the AR-15.
The AR-15 was so demonized that network anchors started comparing the velocity of bullets shot from different guns and people began excusing the school resource officer who did nothing to engage the shooter because he was armed with only a handgun and its relatively “slow” bullets — of course he’d hide in a stairwell.
It seems Emma Gonzalez, one of the most vocal and well-recognized of the Parkland gun control activists, is still railing against the AR-15 in particular and thinks you ought to join the military if you want to fire a rifle like that.
Watch the video below:

Check out the great responses from veterans:
I did, for 10 years and 2 combat tours. I don't ask for, or expect, a single thing as a result of my service. How about people quit telling me how to live my life, and what I do and do not "need." P.S… you're welcome for the privilege to say dumb things. https://t.co/NHFTKhEFNm

I served my country, and still do as a civilian, to preserve this petulant child's right to say such ridiculous things. Make no mistake, she thinks taking guns away from me will make her more safe. Salty language doesn't make you more serious. #veteran https://t.co/OSvUvrSuhz
