Students Stage Pro-Gun Walkout in Florida: ‘Second Amendment Will Not Be Infringed’

‘I’m just saying that we should not let our rights be taken because someone else does something wrong’

Students Stage Pro-Gun Walkout in Florida: ‘Second Amendment Will Not Be Infringed’ (The Washington Free Beacon)

Students at Rockledge High School in central Florida staged a walkout Friday in response to the Parkland, Florida school shooting, but in contrast to a national walkout last month, this one was in support of gun rights.

Students Chloe Deaton and Anna Delaney organized the event, and dozens of students turned out, WFTV Orlando reported. Two weeks ago, students at Rockledge and around the country walked out of schools during the National School Walkout, a movement organized by gun control activists. Some students who support gun rights said their voices were silenced.

"I’m just saying that we should not let our rights be taken because someone else does something wrong," said Deaton.
