This young gentleman was standing up for our Country and our Flag and has now had death threats, lost college offers and been falsely portrayed in the media.

We need to spread this thread and get involved. It makes absolutely no sense for a young man to lose his options for a career all because he stood up for our Country and Flag.


For any college to drop his offer, they are either biased or scared of liberal backlash. These colleges need to be defunded in order for them to realize their purpose is not about politics but about education and preparing these kids for their careers/lives.

I’ve spent my entire professional career putting people back together after trauma, especially gun trauma. 19 years.

When I say I find the vast majority of gun owners insecure, immature & lacking empathy, I’m speaking from experience.
Let’s talk about avoidance. It’s what we do when we don’t want to do something, but can’t just say we don’t want to. It’s having a headache instead of going out with a difficult friend, or pretending your mother’s voicemail got garbled instead of admitting you just X’ed it.
As a culture, we’ve been avoiding the gun discussion for decades. We talk about metal detectors in schools, background checks, or hardened safe rooms. When we talk about these, we’re not talking about the simple premise that a gun is a tool that does nothing but kill.
