Walmart Assault Weapons Protest Gains Momentum As Hundreds Of Thousands Demand Action

Some commenters on this article which appeals to Walmart to stop selling Assault Weapons, suggest that children should not be used to speak about their dislike of guns.  Children have Rights too! They have a right to their opinions, a right to express those opinions and a right to be heard. Too bad some grownups don’t have as much courage to stand up for the rights of children and their SAFETY! Many adults and gun owners are standing up for the right to have assault weapons that killed CHILDREN-filling their bodies with HOLES- but now you say the children shouldn’t use their RIGHTS to SPEAK against it! They must learn now how to ADVOCATE for themselves.  Groups like the NRA are using their money and influence to speak for themselves. Children must learn to speak against powers that might care more about making money than about them!
