Students have every right to be upset when they are being slaughtered in their schools. Funny how the outrage isn’t aimed at the law enforcement who waited outside the Florida High School instead of doing their job!
Suddenly, students across the country wanted to hold a demonstration at 10:00 on March 14th. In Chicago kids looted during the walkout. http://www.ktvu.com/news/320386235-video
The demonstration was actually calls for gun control. Schools don’t teach that criminals don’t obey laws and disarming law-abiding citizens won’t solve any problems. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2018/02/teens-pour-into-the-streets-to-call-for-gun-control-after-florida-shooting/
That brings me to BHS and more emails I received under FOIA.
They were smart enough to not let the kids go outside. The emails say the kids were allowed to stand quietly in the halls for the 17 minutes or stay quietly in their classrooms.
Troubling is the subject line and content on some emails.
Most of the emails have: “Student Led Demonstration March 14, 2018.”
Another one from the Principal on March 13th has: “Take Action 4 Sensible Gun Reform.pdf”
The demonstration was to remember the kids that lost their lives (from the emails). Does that last one sound like that? The email goes on to say copies of that PDF will be available to distribute to participants. It further says to have the students distribute it to other students so it doesn’t look like the teachers are doing it.
Then an email from the Principal to the BHS staff ends with this statement:
We anticipate that all will go well on Wednesday. Remember that this is a teachable moment for our students and also a chance to empower them to lead their learning and have a voice on issues that impact them.
Did that teachable moment include demanding armed security in the building? Congress, courts, banks, sporting events, the President, etc etc are protected by good guys with guns.
I saw nothing calling for our most valuable assets to get the same protection.
You need to be at the 2nd Amendment rally on Saturday!
Bring your kids, they aren’t being taught in school that “Rights” aren’t up for negotiation. They are being indoctrinated to demand Americans disarm.
