A crowd of Millbrook High School students marched out of school at noon on Wednesday to demand stricter gun regulations in the U.S. in the wake of a mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 people last week.

Again, this sort of thing achieves nothing except higher sales of poster board and markers...and maybe shoes if they march a little bit.

"“Witnesses blame paramilitary colectivos,” Provea’s official Twitter account noted. Colectivos are armed chavista gangs that Maduro has for years used to intimidate, attack, and kill protesters. They are extremely effective against anti-socialist protesters because the regime of late dictator Hugo Chávez banned private gun ownership in the country, leaving law-abiding citizens ill-equipped to face off against socialist thugs who operate outside of the law."

Scare tactics say this is an attempt to take away your guns. There is a huge difference between gun safety and banning guns. What is wrong with upping the age of purchase to 21? Banning bump stocks? Changing various other laws to ensure a safer America? In 1791, when the 2nd amendment was adopted, the type of weapons spoken about were muskets and it was all about despot governments.

The Declaration of Independence states "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." The Bill of Rights GUARANTEES us the protection of those God-given rights. If the government can take away your second amendment rights, then they will certainly take away your first. Wise up young people.

These kids want to walk out of school give every single one of them a failing grade almost every single one these kids has no ideal about anything they claim they are fighting for! Most is only trying to follow the crowd thinking that it makes them somebody speacial

You are an inspiration to those of us who support improving gun control legislation. Do not be deterred by those who refuse to debate and hold on to a do nothing strategy rationalized by a simplistic view of the 2nd amendment. With your spirit we can do better at keeping our society safer. Demand congress debate and vote on legislation.

An inspiration? You're misguided. Using your First Amendment rights to abolish the Second makes about as much sense as buying a guard dog and removing it's teeth. The Soviet Union had more generous and expansive guarantees of individual rights within it's constitution with one glaring exception--there was no right to private ownership of arms. That's how true political dissidents like Solzhenitsyn ended up in the Gulag. Most were never heard from again.
