Student-led group plans walkout to support Second Amendment rights

Student-led group plans walkout to support Second Amendment rights”

Dozens of Grand Ledge High School students walked out of their classrooms today in an organized show of support for the Second Amendment.

About 80 students from Tigard High School joined the walkout.

Wednesday's walkout supporting the Second Amendment is scheduled to last 16 minutes for participating students. The suggested start time is 10 a.m.

"I did see it listed", on the Tea Party website, said Ruth Schriver, chief operating officer for Downtown College Prep charter schools.

"It's not us or our location".

Will Riley, 18, of Carlsbad, New Mexico went on Twitter to organize a pro-gun march on May 2, 2018.

"There is a lot of talk recently about the need to create new laws that would restrict access to firearms in order to make our schools safer".

According to the event website, students at Durant High School in Plant City and All Hope Christian Academy in Lakeland will take part.

"We just want to have the same platform that students on the other side were given", Riley told the Santa Fe New Mexican "Really, what I want to do is just to educate people about their constitutional rights that they may not know about".

Organizers also said the walkout was a response to large student protests that took place against gun violence following a massacre at a Florida school earlier this year.
