In just a few days, the youngest members of Generation Y have awakened. They have ended NRA discounts at car rental companies and have probably destroyed Marco Rubio's 2022 reelection campaign. Suddenly, I don't feel so old. The generation ahead of me has done something. Now can it keep doing it? The NRA is acting like they must be stopped. These kids have frightened the NRA.

This might be the beginning of a movement to make gun regulation an accepted and desired policy. And these kids who started the latest push for firearm regulation are off to the best start in US history. They will do more than just make the NRA a lobby group to avoid. Today's politicians will ignore them, but these kids will be running the nation 20 years from now.
