Student walkout at Colorado shooting vigil is a good sign

The very public scene of hundreds of Colorado students and their parents walking out of a vigil that was turned into political theater by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence was so embarrassing that the gun control group actually issued an apology.

Before leaving the Wednesday night event, students shouted, in front of journalists who the Brady Campaign invited: “this is not for us,” “political stunt” and “we are people, not a statement.”

The Brady Campaign had portrayed the event as a vigil in memory of Kendrick Castillo, a student hero who died from gunshot wounds after he and two other students charged one of the attackers Tuesday at the Highlands Ranch STEM School in Colorado.

Eight other students were injured in the shooting. Two students were arrested and accused of the attack.

Instead of putting together an event to bring people together to mourn, the gun control group brought in activists and Colorado politicians – Democratic presidential contender U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet and Democratic U.S. Rep. Jason Crow – to push a one-sided political agenda.

The speakers said they weren’t there to just offer thoughts and prayers, but that they instead were there to push for more restrictions on the right to bear arms.

That's why the MSM is putting the whole incident into the memory hole.

Where's that a-hole from Florida who goes on TV every time there's a school shooting?

These students were from a STEM magnet school. They may actually be smarter than the average drones being pumped out by big ed.

The students do not want to be a pawn in the anti gun debate. Great for the students...

True. I have raised 3 children to adulthood. The 2 older are raving libs. the 19 year old is a very pragmatic conservative.

Agreed. I wonder if there are that many who saw and studied what took place with what happened at Marjory Stoneman last year and really got to see what kind of a production that whole affair was to further the anti gun agenda and also to cover up the corrupt and criminal activity that led up to and even took place during that young man’s bloody rampage.

The school knew of these two a-holes and what they INTENDED to do just like the a-hole in Florida. Our society has a mental illness epidemic and the left gives cover for these scum of society.

I think he was whining about the term “illegal alien” over the weekend.
