A seventeen-year-old Stoneman Douglas High School student has become the official Witch Pricker of the Anti-Gun Witch Hunt.
This boy has wasted no time identifying all the evil people or business who must be attacked, “boycotted” and vilified for having any association with the National Rifle Association.
In less than a week’s time after CNN and other news outlets shoved this kid into the spotlight, he has a verified Twitter account and more than two hundred and seventy thousand people are following him. Sadly, many of them are adults who should know better.
And in his quest to find the witches, he’s even advocating that college students not spend spring break in Florida until an “assault weapons ban” is passed.
So apparently even small business owners who never did a thing to this little prick are also targets of his witch hunt.
And like any good witch pricker, this child is riling up the people itching to burn a witch.
…Or Dana Loesch.
Now, some of you may think this kid is being exploited. And, to a degree, he is.
And some of you may want to slap his smug little face and tell him to shut the hell up.
But the truth is, this witch pricker is going to be the greatest gift to Liberty and gun rights the Left has ever handed us.
Let’s face it. A witch hunt never ends well.
And a witch hunt that chooses as it’s central “spokesman” a child who doesn’t know what in the hell he’s talking about is going to backfire in a big, BIG way.
The people who keep throwing their weight behind this kid are going to end up regretting it. Wait-and-see.

I mentioned last week that children do not possess fully-developed brains.
This official witch pricker of the Anti-Gun Witch Hunt has yet to develop impulse-control, emotional control, judgment or insight.
As a result, he is going to push too hard and too far – mostly because he can’t help himself. Not to mention, he’s bound to become intoxicated by his own instant celebrity.
And the more of a platform he is given, the more likely he will jam his foot so far into his mouth he’ll be able to tickle his own kidneys with his toes.
As a matter of fact, I think he’s already there.

Sorry, this kid’s a moron. I don’t know. Maybe the general feeling and expectations that four armed and trained policemen should try to save defenseless kids from being shot to death. https://t.co/WFF7sdN3XW

This kid was no where near the Shooting and is forgiving a coward who failed to enter the freshman building where the victims were actually being slaughtered. Not sure that’s a good look. https://t.co/cmtNCerS8Q

No, it isn’t a good look.
And it’s only been ten days. This kid is just getting his engines revving.
If fully mature adults can get swept up in their own fame, how much more so will a child?
I watched from my living room window as the the WTC buildings collapsed with my friends & colleagues inside. My NYPD & FDNY pals that died that day probably didn’t “want” to be inside the towers. The media are making these kids say foolish things. Please stop. https://t.co/I6aWAdwGEk

But they won’t stop.
The “strategy” behind this is clear.
For years the anti-gun Left has tried to undermine our Second Amendment and our unalienable right to self-defense. And for years they have failed.
But now they believe they have the perfect patsy to lead them to success.
In their twisted minds, using a child as a human shield will render us powerless. They really do believe that we would not dream of criticizing him or questioning his understandably ignorant and naïve statements.
“Stop talking back to the children we Democrats are exploiting as human shields for our stupid policy ideas!” https://t.co/KNLJr8tjN0

This kid needs to STFU. He’s made himself fair game for criticism.
I was only a few years older than this punk when I was chasing armed thugs around the Bronx, as were my co-workers.
The cop was a coward. No one cares what a leftist child thinks. https://t.co/BvdEmr93lP

But the problem is this. If you choose a child to be your spokesman and then proclaim that he is off limits to criticism or correction, you will not win people to your side.
Instead, people will see your “movement” for what it is – a witch hunt.
And a witch hunt never ends well.
Especially when you make the cynical decision to allow an immature, uninformed child to lead it.
More than likely any day now, this boy’s own words and actions coupled with his enablers’ insistence that he not be called to account will create only anger, resentment and disgust.
And the drunker he becomes on his own fame, the faster than will happen.
