Florida Students Hold Pro-Second Amendment Walkout

A group of Florida students said they felt silenced after walkouts supporting slain Parkland students turned political.

Rockledge, FL – A group of pro-Second Amendment students participated in a brief walkout at Rockledge High School on Friday, to show their support for gun rights.

Approximately 75 teens participated in the demonstration, which was organized by sophomore Chloe Deaton and junior Anna Delaney, Florida Today reported.

The students prominently displayed a Thin Blue Line flag, as well as an American flag, as they paraded to the school’s track. Some carried signs that read, “I support the right to bear arms,” and “guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”

Some wore President Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” hats, while others dressed in camouflage clothing.

Once the group convened at the track, “God Bless America” was played over the loudspeakers.

"We were built on certain rights, and that was one of the original rights, that we should have the right to bear arms," Deaton told her peers, as she wore a shirt that read, “my rights don’t end where your feelings begin.”

She went on to share a 1983 quote from former President Ronald Reagan, who said, “The Constitution does not say that government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution says '... the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.'"

Twenty minutes after the demonstration began, the students returned to class.

Many of the students also participated in the Mar. 14 National School Walkout, as a gesture of support for the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Parkland, FOX News reported.

But just because they supported the victims, that didn't mean that they endorsed the political agendas that became tied to the walkouts, some students said.

Instead, they felt silenced.

"In the beginning, it started as a memorial to the Parkland students. And that's how it should have stayed," Deaton told Florida Today.

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

Deaton expressed similar sentiments.

“We should not let our rights be taken because someone else does something wrong,” she said.

Delaney added that she would support the idea of arming specially trained, unidentified members of the school’s faculty to help protect students.

"I wouldn’t mind deeper background checks, of course, but the Second Amendment will not be infringed upon,” she added.

Ironic.

What's "ironic" about it? If any President had a right to demand "gun control" it was Reagan. And Reagan was only quoting the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. Please tell me what's ironic about that?

Yep, them minority students quote smart people. Or they can quote Moa or Vlad. They just want to protect themselves from democratic green gangs.

@cscoville
Reagan, just like trump, pulled the wool over the whole party's eyes to be all about the second Amendment. Reagan is the reason California has such strict gun laws. But they quote him on his standing for gun rights.

Ironic.

I’m proud of these students and how they made their feelings known in such a way. These kids showed respect and common sense so lacking in many of today’s kids. I’m sure THEIR parents were proud of them.

Unfortunately you are right. Since it does nothing to further the left's disinform, disenfranchise, and disarm agenda, you probably won't. It's too bad - these are the real heroes of this mess.

No, you just want to blame someone other than democrats. Look at all the restrictive laws the democrats put into place. Need I remind you who actually pushed to pass the SINGLE law you want to blame the current conditions on?
Dumbass clown.

““The Constitution does not say that government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution says '... the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.'"

But the statement isn’t wrong tho.

@Heezels
But did Reagan or did Reagan not infringe on the right to bear arms when he signed the Mulford Act when he was governor?

And fun fact, every single modern Republican president has done more gun grabbing than his Democratic predecessor. I'm not saying that to be inflammatory, it's the honest truth. It's even happening again right now.

How much legislation did Obama Pass against guns? None, he actually signed the bill making bump stocks legal.

What about Trumpito? I thought he was all for 2A. Doesn't look like it this past month or so, or for any other point in his life except when he was getting elected.

Just like Reagan.

Please, enlighten us all on the bills modern Democratic presidents have passed to restrict gun laws?

The floor is yours.

Why don't we start with Roberti-Roos Assault Weapons Control Act of 1989. By the way, the one you want to blame on Ragan simply said you can't carry a LOADED weapon.

@b1rd
I did specifically say presidents, but fine. I also thought you'd start earlier than my lifetime.

Either way, Nixon's stance on guns was that they were an abomination. He favored making hand guns totally illegal and required licenses for low-powered hunting rifles.

Would you like to also know GW Bush's stance on assault rifles? Or so you remember what he said? If not, i can remind you.

Shut up and admit you were wrong. You were talking about Reagan and California. I replied concerning California. Dumbass clown.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@b1rd
And about the Mulford act, it had to be relegated to just loaded weapons, so that it could pass state Congress easier. Through the years, more bills would be added built upon the Mulford Act, like the one you mentioned.

Further, guess where Reagan stood on guns prior to his presidential election? He thought there was "no reason why on the street today a citizen should be carrying loaded weapons." further, the Mulford Act "would work no hardship on the honest citizen."

Your turn.

Ah, yes. Bush Senior also fully supported that weapons ban. He resigned his NRA membership partly because they were against it.

Mute is another word for someone who can't speak. Another word for that is dumb. Another word for that is stupid. That's about how you use words.

No, I have drawn this out for one reason. I will let you in on a little secret. This is how people know you are a liar and a fraud.

When someone makes an error or you think you have more knowledge in an area the above exchange happens. If you have limited knowledge you either ridicule the person or make, what you think to be, a sly comment. Or, you stay away from the subject. There are many times I have made mistakes in something that was said but, being that you had limited knowledge of the Navy and your so called business you didn't notice the error.

Funny thing is you spent a lot of time on the word mute. Even went to the dictionary. Dumbass clown. Just so you know. I have screen shot this entire conversation and put this thread in a special folder just for you.
