High School Students Walk Out to SUPPORT the Second Amendment

Written by Joe Scudder

We should be grateful when students walk out of class to oppose government disarmament because it exposes the fake consensus.

Normally I think I would oppose it and recommend that students study. But when the media uses children to push their agenda, I’m thankful the see students walk out of school and promote the Bill of Rights.

Come to think of it, these students who walked out of class may be better off educationally as well. How likely is it that the school is encouraging the students to value the political vision of the country as founded? I don’t think it is probable that the school is teaching students about how the second amendment makes America exceptional or great.

Of course, this is just one school. Unlike pro-disarmament students, these students weren’t encouraged, funded, or organized by organizations run by pro-disarmament adults. The National Rifle Association, for all it’s alleged power, doesn’t dare use minors that way. The media will cover for Leftist organizations but would foment hysteria against the NRA for doing the same thing.

Fox News reports, “Students at Florida high school stage walkout in support of Second Amendment.

A group of students at a Central Florida high school walked out of class Friday as part of a protest in support of the Second Amendment.

[…]

About 75 students participated in Friday’s walkout at Rockledge, Florida Today reported. The protest lasted 20 minutes.

They walked onto the schools track carrying the American flag and signs that said “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” […] the paper reported.

[…]

Zachary Schneider, a junior, was quoted by the paper as saying, “It’s all over the news right now that all students hate guns. I wanted to show that not all students feel that way.”

The local ABC affiliate, WFTV 9, reported, “Rockledge High School students stage walkout in support of Second Amendment,” saying that some were left out or at least felt they were excluded from having a voice.

Some of the students who participated in the walkout said when the movement to honor the victims and survivors of the shooting in Parkland became political, they felt silenced.

“I’m pro-Second Amendment. I wouldn’t mind deeper background checks, of course, but the Second Amendment will not be infringed upon,” said student Anna Delaney.
