Laura Ingraham: Why should Parkland students get "special consideration" on gun policy?

Ingraham: "Why should their political or policy views -- I mean, we're talking sometimes 14, 15, 16-year-old kids be given special consideration?"

LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): And then there are the Parkland, Florida school students, they've been through a lot. And for anyone who has been conscious since Valentine's Day, the media has featured these kids wall to wall, their passion, their words. And I would argue their pain and loss is at times, yeah, being exploited by anti-gun activists, sometimes using them as proxies, even.

[...]

Kids. They are still in high school. They are going through a lot, it's something called growing up.

And Sheriff (Scott) Israel made unwittingly one of the salient points here -- why on Earth should teenagers dictate policy on gun control, on the Second Amendment, or, frankly, anything else for that matter?

Now, without diminishing their pain, their sadness -- some of them are really smart, I think -- or the right to express their opinion about the slaughter, of course, of their fellow classmates, why should their political or policy views -- I mean, we're talking sometimes 14, 15, 16-year-old kids be given special consideration?

Well, when they're not insulting congressman or senators, they are advising them on gun policy.
