There is an interesting aspect about many liberals. They tout liberalism ONLY as long as it benefits them, but at the same time, they strive to limit the rights of everyone else. They have a hard time comprehending a freedom of choice can exist. Rather, they want to dictate to everyone else, to fore them to do everything their way with no other way being acceptable.

This is true when it comes to gun control. A growing number of liberal young people are pressing to push their views on guns and gun rights and gun control on everyone else rather than allow others to exercise their constitutional rights if they choose to.

This is what many young competitive shooters are up against as they try hard to defend their sport.

Jaden Thompson, 17, can do it. The Normal West student is among the best young shooters in the country. To get there, Jaden has cut back on sugar and caffeine to stabilize her shot. She works out to build up her cardio and core strength. She’s spent hours and hours practicing at the range.

“It’s just you when you’re on the gun. It’s no one else. It’s about very extreme focus, which I really enjoy,” said Jaden, who lives in Bloomington.

High schoolers across the country—including in Bloomington-Normal—have rallied for more gun control since the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland, Florida. States like Florida have responded with tighter gun restrictions, and Illinois is considering the same…

What Thompson and other teen competitive shooters like her want is for there to be more focus on problem people instead of blaming and focusing on guns. They realize that problem isn’t guns but the people in our decaying society who have no respect for right or wrong because of the way they have been taught in today’s socialistic public education system.
