Over the weekend, Twitter rando @kaleidoscopeken dropped this white-hot take on the NRA:

“Defund the NRA” and use that money to pay teachers! Why didn’t someone think of that before???

Whoops! Well, @kaleidoscopeken, like, totally knew that:

Suuuuuuure, ken.

But that’s OK. Because the original tweet still got over 21,000 retweets. Including one from Parkland gun control crusader Emma González:

May we offer you a bit of advice, Emma González? If you’re going to retweet something to push your agenda, you should probably make sure the source knows what the hell they’re talking about.

It’s really not so incredible, though. Emma González — like so many of her fellow gun control activists — is more interested in emotional appeals than fact-based ones. And that reason, among others, is why they’ll never persuade gun rights advocates to take them seriously.
