Nationwide Pro-Second Amendment Student Walkout will be Held May 2nd

Stand for the Second
Stand for the Second – Will Riley

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- On March 14, 2018, students walked out of their classes demanding more gun control.  Left-wing politicians and the media heaped praise on the kids for using their First Amendment right to protest our Second Amendment right.

Teachers and school administrators refused to discipline the students for the walk out.  They claimed that the lack of discipline wasn't because the students shared the same anti-gun belief as themselves, they said that they didn't punish the students because they were just exercising their rights on a topic they believed was important the country.

Many people on the right wondered if the students were pro-life or other issues that were important to the right if the administration would be as understanding.  It looks like we will get to find out.

On May 2, 2018, students from over 200 schools will stage the “Stand for your Second” walkout for 16 minutes in support of the Second Amendment.

Will Riley, a senior at Carlsbad High School in Carlsbad, New Mexico, organized the walkout. The student's idea is to show that the media have been dishonest about young people's beliefs.

“The media’s depiction of my generation as anti-Second Amendment is nothing less than lying by omission,” the 18-year-old student told me. “There are two sides to every story, and the mainstream media is trying hard to make sure only one is heard.”

Riley also believes even though that some students might be pro-gun control on their own fruition other were influenced by the well-funded anti-gun groups such as Moms Demand Action and the Brady Center.

“I think that while some students have more developed views that may be pro-gun control,” Riley told Ammoland. “Many of them turned to that solution in the wake of the tragedy at Parkland due to the well-funded presence of Anti-Constitution activists.”

The student activist was also able to pressure his school administration to allow the walkout since they let the anti-gun protest take place at the school.

“The school administration is allowing us to do it,” said Riley. “Since they allowed the anti-constitution walkout. However, there has been resistance in other places.”

Some on the left have attacked Riley and the movement as a whole while claiming that no one can attack David Hogg because he is a student.  KRQE reported that Riley doesn't hunt or shoot.  This report is a claim that Riley denies.

Riley admits that he isn't the biggest shooter in the world and that he only occasionally hunts, but he does do both.  What these left-wing media outlets don't understand is that a person that stands up for our rights even if they don't practice the rights themselves is still doing noble and just thing.

According to the organizers of the walkout, the list of schools participating is growing every day.  Even though there have been attacks on the legitimacy of the walkout and some resistance the students are undeterred.

More information about the walkout can found below.

    Ageed, Sharon. The single sentence, “Riley also believes even though that some students might be pro-gun control on their own fruition other were influenced by the well-funded anti-gun groups such as Moms Demand Action and the Brady Center” contains multiple grammatical errors. If an author hopes to convince readers of the value of his opinion, grammar matters. If you can’t write above a ninth-grade level, your work will appear to have been based on research done by a ninth-grader.

    Almost 50 years ago I worked as the main mechanic (USAF Aerospace Ground Equipment Tech.) at more than one alert sites whereby we were prepared 24/7 to obliterate the USSR from the earth. I was in my early 20’s and had owned shotguns and rifles since I was age 10. Until my four year USAF tour I was not in favor of any and all people owning firearms. However, after witnessing strange ships (ETs or something else really weird) hovering and flying over Air Force bases, I am convinced all able-bodied and mentally stable people (men and women) should own… Read more »

    It has done something at least! I am a student, and I am walking out now that I know of this. I actually walked out for the anti-gun protest but guess what? I didn’t do it to skip class. I wore my NRA hat to show my side. I told people that I was there to remember the victims, but the corrupt anti-gun kids could kiss my ass. I got my best friend in on it too. He wore his Make America Great Again hat, and we stood side by side through it.

We are against those who would defy our Constitution and our God given Constitutional rights. In honor of our Constitution and the rights it provides us, and in honor of all who have fought and died protecting those rights I ask that the symbol you use be that of your hand over your heart.

    David Hogg is the fagbate Brownshirt who became the posterpuppy for the anti-Gun hate the NRA wuss Democrat bowel movement.
    Kyle Kashuv is the hero at Parkland who got interrogated by the heavily armed coward school resource officers and Broward Sheriff Deputies because he went to the gun range with his father. These are the same deputies who pissed and shit in their pants hiding behind their cop cars while the shooter was slaughtering the students. Kyle is the young face of the pro-second Ammentment voice.

    Students have been so sensitized to “guns are bad” for decades that it is no wonder that they blindly follow the anti-gun rhetoric. They can’t have a picture of a gun, draw a gun, make a gun out of a pp&j sandwich withut being punished. What happened to schools with shooting and safety programs and clubs? They say that they are thinking for themselves, but are really sheep blindly following the anti-gun groups and teachers. When they show these protests being organized on school grounds, teachers in attendance/participating and school buses in the background, it is obvious that they are… Read more »

    Because what right does someone who has no knowledge what so ever of fire arms to tell us whether or not we can own one or not, and he does have the right to stand up for his belief just as we have the right to own guns and it SHALL not and will never be infringed upon, it is impossible.

The kid is saying he is standing up for the constitution and the rule of law, calling out the media for a hypocritical bias, and forcing the schools to acknowledge the PRO-2nd side of the debate since they allowed the Anti-side to march back in March. His own comment was that even if he was not a hunter and shooter as he is, then standing up in DEFENSE of of other’s protected… Read more »

What the know-it-all Liberals fail to realize is that the First 10 Amendments are the Bill of Rights, which are Unalienable Rights, and cannot be Legislated away from the People. Second, as stated in the U.S. Code, and as part of the Congressionally ratified… Read more »

I do not own a gun nor have I ever owned a gut and I hope to never own a gun, but if I have to I will buy a gun to defend the right to own one.

    Savannah, God Bless, and stay strong. The fact that you are being bullied and belittled should only show you how shallow and weak their arguments are. Because you had the strength to stand for what you believe in, to argue facts and evidence, to challenge the “consensus” or “Status Quo”, you became a threat to them. Because of their own weakness, their fragile little minds can’t handle it when someone disagrees with them, and they all turn into chicken littles thinking the sky will fall on their heads unless the “Denier” can be silenced.

    @Savannah Beard, your teachers will, now, lower your grades to make sure that you do not get into college. Keep your own counsel, but stay quiet until you get what you want, high school grades, college grades, whatever. In the mean time notify everyone possible in writing of your being bullied.
    If the school does nothing about bullying or retaliates against you by diminishing your grades you will need to get a lawyer to investigate your teachers and the school administration.

    I am amazed that the first group of students did not march for more security in the schools
    Gates, locks, guards, access control
    Instead they marched to ban AR 15’s!
    They would be safer if the school hired coaches and armed them with revolvers

    Classroom teachers should be armed with the easy to learn AR SBR AAC 300 BLK, suppressed. Carry of a handgun optional if they can qualify on a TQ15 target with 90% hits at 7 yards, 20 rounds in 2 minutes.
    Outside teachers [coaches} armed with a AR5.56×45 12″ plus suppressor, 1-6x scope for play ground and soccer fields. Handgun still optional.
    Sights such as the EOTech seems perfect for classroom defense.
    Teachers need a desk that will stop a 7.62×51 AP round.

    Easy to figure out: The narratives were already written and the handlers told them what to say, how to act and what to protest.

The left is demoralizing and de-sensatizing the youth for the sole purpose of left wing entitlements and extremism along with blind support. Instead of learning about thr forefathers of this nation, they are being taught to fight against what the nation was even founded for. To escape the tyranny of opressive government (slavery and crushing control) and make all men equal.
