Florida Students Engage In Pro-Gun Walk Out.

The Parkland students are giving students a bad name and some Florida scholars have decided to do something about it. They organized a walkout in support of guns.

Students at Rockledge High School in Florida felt that the Parkland shooting has become politicized and the parkland speakers are no longer representing all students. But instead, those that have been misled.

Walk-out organizers Chloe Deaton and Ann Delaney felt the walk-out was needed, to make a point as students who support the second amendment have been underrepresented.

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.”

We were built on certain rights and that was one of the original rights, that we should have the right to bear arms,” sophomore Chloe Deaton told the group. She helped Delaney organize the walkout.

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

Another Ridgeland High Schooler really summed up how the students felt.

“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.”

About 75 students, according to a head count by school administrators, walked onto the school’s track carrying the American flag and signs that said “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” and “I support the right to bear arms.” The event lasted about 20 minutes and then students returned to class.

The demonstration was organized by Chloe Deaton, a sophomore, and Anna Delaney, a junior, who are part of Rockledge High’s Criminal Justice and Legal Studies Academy.”
