In the wake of the Parkland shooting, young people have become defacto mascots for anti-gun advocates and national media.
Putting a bunch of children on national television to discuss complex, highly-charged issues is not a good thing, in my opinion, especially after said children have experienced a traumatic, life-changing event.
We saw why recently on CNN, when a panel’s discussion steered from “common sense” gun control measures to the role of race in mass shootings.
It started when 17-year-old Zyahna Bryant suggested that white people in particular have blood on their hands.
“Who is carrying out these mass shootings?” asked Bryant, who is black. “Young white men.”
