    It's been said that the high school students from Parkland, and others as well, wouldn't make any difference.

    Looks like they're doers. They're busy demonstrating, appealing to Congress and voters, and staying the course.

    When people start to have an effect, others want to stop them:

    CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - The family of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg was "swatted" Tuesday morning, causing police to respond to their Parkland home.
    Sky 10 was over the home as units were staged outside as a precaution. BSO responded with multiple crews and a police helicopter.

    Swatting is the action of making a prank emergency call to bring about a response of armed law enforcement officers.
    Hogg was interviewed and stayed on point with his mission and purpose.

    There was no victimhood going on with him. No fear or self-pity.


    What kind of person swats anyone? Who does it to a kid who's still in high school?

    It's cowardly, dangerous, and really low:

    These ‘pranks’ create extremely dangerous circumstances for the person on the other end. In Kansas, a swatting recipient was recently murdered by police responding to his home.

    There's a podcast with Malcolm Gladwell on the subject of school shootings. It's twelve and a half minutes.

    Malcolm has his own podcast. He has rules too. (voluntary, of course)
