Some weeks there are too many topics to restrict a column to just one and/or a backlog of opinions that needs to be cleared; hence the following:

Weeks later, Gitz decides to jump on the alt-right bandwagon devoted to bullying a shooting survivor who's also a child. Pathetic. The D-G should've spiked his column this week, unless they want us to conclude the editors agree with his treatment of a massacre survivor.

"So does this mean that Trump's most ardent admirers don't read either? That he has the "we don't need any stinkin' books" core of the electorate sewn up?" ROTFL. Most of this Gitz column I could attack, but this was a gem at the end. Summing up the issue illiterates.

Gitz, you did get the end of the column right, but you completely screwed the first part. Hogg is a spokesperson because he had the presence of mind to interview and record fellow students while the active shooting was still going on. That makes him a better journalist than you automatically.
Second, I suspect you have never been shot at, Mr. Gitz, or your views would be different. Hogg and all those other students, nationwide, are saying what many of us have said and felt for years. Wayne LaPierre may actually be the anti-Christ, and the NRA doesn't represent gun owners any more. They represent manufacturers who want to make the only product on earth for which they have no liability. You watch, those kids anger and passion, combined with Trump just being Trump, is going to dramatically alter the makeup of congress in November.

This guy teaches young people?? Look up gibberish. The teen you speak of doesn’t advocate anti-gun to your dream laden desires. Jealous of the tragic spotlight are you? You picture yourself taking him on? Sad and transparent.

Sometimes you wonder if there's a hog farm upstream from Gitz's mental stream. Just saying....

Florida students should make the gun laws?

When warned that what the Florida students supported would result in the ban of all semi automatic HUNTING rifles, they applauded loudly .

Seems Florida students are as dense as the liberal posters here.....

sjmays..........." ban ALL guns"
PopMom.........." ban all semi automatic rifles"
RBear.............." show need" ( and heavy praise of Germany's strict gun control where the police can enter your home at any time if you own a gun )

haha406............." require registration of all guns "

Hogg and Florida kids are young and naive.
Hogg loves the spotlight of national media.
Most kids would.

speaking of "kids", the liberal anti-gun posters acted like kids while posting immediately after the shooting guided only by hysteria.

Already some of the " usual suspects" have tried distancing themselves from the rabid. hysterical, comments they made soon after the shooting.

You certainly wouldn't want any of the posters I mentioned holding elected office.
Passing laws while foaming at the mouth with hysteria and then back tracking later shows they lack stability in a crisis.

Typical snowflakes !

Gitz is afraid of a teenager.

Duly noted.

So many good comments. I’d just like to add how delicious it is that a young man like David Hogg sends Gitz and his ilk into such a tizzy. (Btw, Gitz, you d-bag, Hogg is 18; no longer a ‘child’ and eligible to vote.) He’s also intelligent, articulate, passionate, photogenic and fearless. Gitz’ attempts to suggest Hogg’s 1A rights as a gun crime survivor are somehow subordinate to the 2A rights of gun crime perpetrators are lame.

The sad thing about Hogg is he actually could have had a future of getting educated and contributing to society.

Once he has gotten all this media attention, I doubt he will ever reach his potential.
He will end up being an ACTIVIST and contribute nothing to society.
