Grand Ledge HS Senior Leads Pro-Second Amendment Walkout

Letter to the editor: Support sensible gun laws Students walk out of classrooms nationwide to show support for Second Amendment

On March 14, about 50 students reportedly walked out of class as part of the National School Walkout day to honor victims of the Parkland shooting and advocate for safer schools.

Students from at least one Bay Area high school took part in a nationwide walkout Wednesday dubbed "Stand for the Second", an effort "to protect our natural rights that are enshrined in the constitution", with a handful of other schools reportedly set to participate. But she says Wednesday's Stand For The Second, where students displayed a Trump banner and MAGA hats, was, "blatantly not".

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

Bringing balance to the ongoing gun control debate was the goal of a brief student demonstration Wednesday at Discovery Canyon High School in north Colorado Springs.

Powered by that momentum, Thorup said he and other Second Amendment supporters are starting "Teens for the Republic", a group of, ideally, young students, their families and school teachers who will all go out shooting together. He said school officials treated student protesters, both those for and against gun-control measures, equally. "We are, as Kayne West said, 'independent thinkers.' We form our own opinions and we are stout in what we believe". On Wednesday morning, about 40 students joined Thorup in a demonstration of their own: Standing for the Second Amendment. Several hundred schools across the country planned to participate in the walkout, according to a map produced by the organizers.

WISN 12 News spotted school officials scattered around the building, even hearing one worker yelling at the students to come back in.

Although Riley said the event was created to highlight students who oppose gun control policies, a recent poll of school-aged youth suggests they are in the minority.

Responding to Kashuv's tweet, Riley said he didn't want the walkout to unduly disrupt learning, but he still believes the protest was important.

"It's not so much a protest for change, but a symbolic act in support of law enforcement, in support of our military and our rights as American citizens", senior Ryan Horne said.
