Who is John Jiler?

Recently, we have received a comment on the article, “Student Voices: Thoughts on President Trump,” The comment is as following…

THE NOTORIOUS NINETEEN

Dear Editor;

Autumn is deepening, and seniors are thinking harder and harder about their next step. For many of us, your generation is the hope of the future. The Parkland high school shootings galvanized young people across the nation to passionately advocate for common sense gun laws. Now, as your attention turns to college, we want to turn our admiration into action.

With the help of the Brady Center, the new Gabby Giffords consortium, Everytown for Gun Safety and the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, we’re reaching out to high school journalists across the country with our list of the NOTORIOUS NINETEEN—the states with dangerous, inadequate gun laws. Many of them condone the open carry of weapons on college campuses, but even those who don’t have encouraged or tolerated a state-wide lawless and violent culture. Our mission is to make these states known to high school seniors, whom we encourage NOT to apply to college in:

ALABAMA, ALASKA, ARIZONA, ARKANSAS, FLORIDA, GEORGIA, IDAHO, KANSAS, KENTUCKY, MISSISSIPPI, MISSOURI, MONTANA, NEW HAMPSHIRE, NORTH DAKOTA, OKLAHOMA, TEXAS, UTAH, WEST VIRGINIA, or WYOMING.

We’ll be following up with letters to college presidents, Governors and legislators of the “Notorious Nineteen.” If they’re curious why their state-wide college applications are down this year, we’ll be happy to tell them!

Thank you for considering the publication of this letter in your newspaper. This is how the world changes. Good luck throughout senior year…… and beyond!

Best,

John Jiler,

Coordinator,

Committee for Scholastic Action On Guns

 

John Jiler seems to be commenting in a hope to inform and persuade high school students to avoid specific states in their college choices. Looking into him farther, we have found many other high school news sites such as our own, that he has commented the exact same post.

When we looked up the name on Facebook, we came to a page where no specific person can be declared as him. It is very odd and mysterious; we cannot conclude if this is one person, a group, or a bot. We can only assume the committee contains more than him.

Into even farther search, there is nothing on this committee but endless posts on high school news sites. It’s both concerning, and interesting.

Who are you John Jiler, and what is this committee?
