Students are energized. People who want tighter gun restrictions are energized. Staunch defenders of the Second Amendment are energized. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez are on televisions everywhere. My classmates and I will be turning 16 soon. We will soon be voting, said Parkland student Monisa Olsen at the March for our Lives in Washington late last month. Those who want to stay in, you will need to hear our voices. Listen to us instead of taking money from the NRA. Thoughts and prayers dont count. We need action. If you cant change their minds, change their seats, said Rep. Donald McEachin, D-Va., at the gun march. We want to make sure historic moment doesnt pass us by. But it remains to be seen whether firearms will be an issue in this falls midterm elections and help Democrats win seats. Consider the types of seats Democrats must capture to take the House. Look at the success in the recent special election in southwestern Pennsylvania. Rep.-elect Conor Lamb, D-Pa., won touting a moderate message. Democrats note that voters backed Lamb in part due to his stance on health care and ways to improve Obamacare.
