GOP Lawmaker Says Parkland Survivors Are Slackers Who Play Video Games

On Saturday, as hundreds of thousands of people across the United States took part in the “March For Our Lives” to call for sensible gun control laws, the world saw the bravery and determination of the young survivors of gun violence who have started this movement to make their nation better, safer, and more peaceful.

But according to an Ohio state lawmaker, the survivors of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, last month that took the lives of 17 people, are just slackers who want to eat chips and play video games.

Speaking at a pro-gun rally in Columbus recently, Butler County Rep. Candice Keller declared:

“A month ago, we weren’t really having this conversation, and all of a sudden a 15-year-old on television who would just as soon be eating Doritos and playing video games wants to tell me that my constitution needs to be changed. Really?”

Keller, who gladly waves her ammosexual flag and is only too proud to shill for the gun lobby, also had this to say at the same pro-gun gathering:

“Nothing empowers women more than carrying. So firearms protect me against offenders. My husband is not always with me.”

And guns aren’t the only issue where Keller is clearly fifty years behind the times. She had this to say about women’s rights in her state:

“I don’t think there is a war on women in this country. That’s just me. I think there’s a war on men in this country.”

People like Candice Keller are part of a larger subsection of the country that ardently defends a man like Donald Trump despite his own moral failings and inability to tell the truth about anything. They think it’s their right to carry their guns anywhere they damn well please and belittle those who disagree with them.

But their time is running out. These brave young people are the real future of this country.
