Ohio Student Was Suspended for Refusing to Leave Classroom During The Gun Control Walkout!


A high school student in Hilliard, Ohio, didn’t want to choose sides in the gun debate surrounding Wednesday’s “National Walkout,” so he stayed in class instead of joining the anti-gun protest.

Jacob Shoemaker met with the school’s principal on Tuesday, a day before the rally, for about an hour to find out what exactly the walkout was supporting. But he said the principal reportedly told him it was for the “students to express themselves.”

There is no such thing as gun control...

It's all about redistribution of guns...

Gun control will take weapons out of the hands of law abiding citizens and put all the responsibilities of security on the police or another selected law enforcement entity.
Gun control will not prevent the mentally ill from acquiring a gun. It will not prevent the Chicago gang banger from acquiring a gun. It will not prevent a terrorist from acquiring a gun.
The liberals operate in socialistic thought. The government can solve all the problems we have.

Liberals falsely believe government is a benevolent body who will not be corrupted by supreme power.

I was just stopped at the red light next to Providence High School here in Burbank, and there was a large group of kids out protesting for #NationalWalkoutDay, holding signs and chanting, and my reaction surprised me.
The driver next to me & I both tooted our horns in support, and as we smiled at each other I registered what it was they were chanting: “Less Guns. More Kids.”
I reflexively choked up. I was sitting there feeling encouraged by these kids’ enthusiasm and activism, & that chant hit me with the bottom line reason those kids, and kids all over the US, are out there today; they’re scared. Our kids are scared for their lives. My kids. Yours.

In order to see the future you can look abroad

What will our country look like in the next 10-50 years?

- Private ownership of guns will be banned
- Open borders and Democrat domination at the polls
- Reworking of the First Amendment ("Hate speech" fines and imprisonment)
- White privilege taxes and land confiscation
- Church demolitions and complete removal of Christian symbols
- Continued efforts to promote fluidity the sexes
- Socialist system
- Eventual integration of a world government system
- Persecution of anyone who opposes
Think this is not plausible?
It's happening!

Take a look at what happened today at the #NationalWalkoutDay

When you control the educational system, you control the narrative

I'm sorry but conservative thoughts and values have no chance...

I am offering a free narrative structure class to students participating in #NationalWalkoutDay

You are powerful. You have a story to tell. May I help you tell it?…
Teachers who are supporting your students during #NationalWalkoutDay, if you want me to virtually pop into your classroom and do a mini-session on narrative structure, let me know.
Meanwhile, here are some tools you can use. It turns out that you can explain pretty much every story, fiction and non-fiction, through a fairly simple organizational theory. I’m going to talk about this through a lens of fiction, but it’s everywhere.
