Students Plan Another School Walk-Out For Friday, April 20th: School Warn Parents This Is NOT A School Event
Students across the Nation have planned a second school walk-out for more gun-control regulations. This time officers warn students to stay on the sidewalk because they will not be closing roads. During the last walk-out, some students dangerously blocked the busy streets- causing traffic delays.
In Washington students from D.C., Maryland and Virginia will hold a vigil outside the White House Friday morning, observing 19 minutes of silence to honor “all those killed by gun violence in the 19 years” since Columbine.
After the vigil, they plan to march to the U.S. Capitol building for a gun control rally.
It is not clear how many students plan to participate. In many cases, they risk having unexcused absences on their records if they decide to leave school.
Organizers include the groups National School Walkout DC, Students Demand Action DMV and Montgomery County Students for Gun Control.
Be prepared for a new National School Walkout Day on Friday, April 20, commemorating the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting, the day that introduced America to a new era in evil and a new era in leftist activism.
Across the nation, tomorrow, as many as 2,400 events are planned associated with the school walkout. Most high school students in attendance were either newborn or not yet conceived when Columbine High School shot through the nation’s conscious in 1998.
Lane Murdock, a 16-year-old sophomore at Ridgefield High School in Connecticut, said plans for this new walkout began on February 14, just hours after a lone gunman killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
“I’ve been so inspired by the MSD students, they are the leaders and the heroes of our generation,” said Murdock. “We’re not going to hope and wish anymore. We’re going to demand.”
According to The Seattle Times, Murdock said that she authored the petition, calling for people to join her in a nationwide walkout before Parkland had officially counted their dead, meaning she essentially politicized the tragedy before people could barely even process what happened.
