“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. Some of the students who participated in the walkout at Rockledge High School told WFTV that when the movement to honor the victims and survivors of the shooting in Parkland became political, they felt silenced.” Huh? How is this possible.
We’ve been reliably told by David Hogg and CNN that the Parkland shooting sparked a new, ineluctable push by the Tide Pod generation for restrictions on Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
“I’m pro-Second Amendment,” Rockledge junior and protest organizer Anna Delaney told the station. “I wouldn’t mind deeper background checks, of course, but the Second Amendment will not be infringed upon.”
About 75 yoots walked out of class to support Americans’ right to keep and bear arms.
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.”
Rockledge principal Vickie Hickey said the school treated the Second Amendment walkout exactly like it treated the walkout that took place two weeks ago, the paper reported.
She said both events were completely student-driven.
Somehow, we haven’t seen nearly as much coverage of this budding student movement as we have of those calling for assault weapons bans and repeal of the Second Amendment. What that is remains a mystery.
