More students stand to defend gun rights

Very encouraging. It would be nice if the right could get behind these kids, and organize national protest in DC like the gun grabbers did

The latest example: in Colorado, a group of students held a pro-Second Amendment rally to signal their support for the right to keep and bear arms.

Students in Colorado who support the Second Amendment staged their own walkout Wednesday, in an effort to counter the pro-gun control rallies taking place across the nation following the deadly shooting at a Florida high school in February.

Students at Woodland Park High School, an hour north of Pike’s Peak, began the 30-minute pro-Second Amendment rally with a moment of silence for victims of past school shootings.

“I don’t believe that guns are the problem,” said student Haley Armstead. “I think it’s more of the people and that people are trying to blame an inanimate object for something that’s not them.”

Another student, Christian Garcia, told FOX 21 more armed officers and trained teachers would “stop” or “prevent” further school shootings.

While student-organized and with no affiliation to the high school, the school district did allow the students to walk out and provided increased security through the police department.

Students walked onto the school’s track carrying the American flag and holding signs that read “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” and “I support the right to bear arms.”

Another student said he participated to show that not all students are for gun control.

“It’s all over the news right now that all students hate guns,” Zachary Schneider said. “I wanted to show that not all students feel that way.”
