Reflections on the Pied Piper March

Pied Piper

The majority of gun deaths are suicides, not homicides. And the suicide rate for older white men is higher than any other group. Just keep that in mind as you reflect on the time media spent covering the march yesterday.  It's as true today as it was 26 years ago when this article was written.

You won't see any people organizing for men, but you will see them demonized and ridiculed in our media, in academe and by the left. Yesterday's march was solicitation for Democrat voters, not a response to a tragedy. (Never waste a crisis.) We saw children used and manipulated by the very organizations that have put them at risk.

On Valentine's day there was a massive failure of federal, state, county, and local governments. Yesterday we saw the pink hats, Planned Parenthood, the anti-gun and anti-Trump forces. That said, children are safer at school than anywhere else; but many are not safe at home. A child is more likely to be injured or killed by the fists and feet of a parent/guardian than a rifle smuggled in to his school.
