Survivors of a Colorado school shooting walked out of vigil for their slain classmate on Wednesday night in protest of politicians and other groups using it as a platform for gun control, a local report said.
The students from STEM High School, where two gunman killed a student and wounded eight others on Tuesday, began yelling from the stands that they wanted to be heard after two politicians and pro-gun control advocates addressed the crowd, according to the local NBC affiliate, KUSA.
They then stormed out of the vigil after Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and Democratic Congressman Jason Crow addressed the crowd, The Denver Post reported.

The students shouted “mental health” was the problem, not “gun control”.
Well done students and parents!!
This was not a vigil, this was merely a political stunt.
This is not what we wanted for Kendrick. We didnt want
Kendrick to be a prop, we wanted Kendrick to be mourned, One
male student said. We all walked out, we were not kicked out
despite what you have heard, now were back to tell you that
we love Kendrick and we love all of the survivors.
Students storm out of STEM school shooting vigil after
Democrat politicians made politicized remarks
Thank you for the additional information. I hate this word, virial but this really needs to get out!
Mental Health? For the shooters or the scavageing politicals?
I don’t know why the leftists have had so much traction with gun control. When a horrible incident happens there is so much that is obvious that the leftists dismiss - especially anything about the shooter or any issue about how secure the building was. Instead they prattle about the gun itself - they talk about technical details of the gun, which they get wrong or exaggerate, and how banning guns will somehow solve all crime/security issues.
Link to Denver Post story:
Democratic? There’s nothing democratic about the democrat party.
These kids dont have the faintest clue about why they are protesting. I remember a walk out protest we had for our school for the teachers that went on strike. We didnt give a damn about the teachers. We looked for any excuse we could to cut classes.
Read the arthicle. These kids clearly wanted to grieve and honor their friends. This was also after hours event they didn’t have to be there.
Big difference between Americans and Broward county Fl. scum...
Play Phyllis Diller laugh...
Clearly there were several unarmed high school boys who showed far more courage than the armed trained Broward County Sheriff Resource offices. Coward! How in the he’ll he can look at himself in the mirror in the morning is beyond my understanding.
Seriously?? The KIDS KNOW it was Mental Health?? WOW!! Good for them!
Leftists just can’t catch a break on some days.
Here they are going about business as usual, demagoging another shooting for political purposes, and they got called on it.
“It’s not supposed to work that way... waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!”
Unfortunately for them... The majority of parents vote Democrat... and this is the end result of such.
I pray these children turn the tide and fight for their freedoms rather than sell them off to the highest bidder.
I pray for this lost child.... we do have a problem with evil in this country... but I am not surprised... given we have turned our back on God a long time ago.
Thank you, STEM High School.
You guys actually get it.
And Michael Bennet is now a 'cancer survivor', just in time to run for president.
I saw that Joe Neguse, another newbie, and Diana DeGette (Pat Schroeder jr) were the first to jump on the gun control clownwagon.
