Grass Roots: Student walkout to support gun rights

ReasonYesterday at 10 a.m., pro-Second Amendment students across the country participated in a 16-minute walkout from class as part of a national event backed by the Tea Party Patriots. Called "Stand for the Second," the demonstration was a response to the March 14 National School Walkout in support of gun control. The idea was hatched by New Mexico high school senior Will Riley. Riley told USA Today: "I'm watching the news, and I see they're saying, 'We have to do something about this. We have to enact some sort of gun control legislation because this is what the kids are asking for.' And I'm thinking, 'I'm not asking for that.' I look at my friends, and I think, 'They're not asking for that.'" Riley says his event was for pro-Second Amendment students "who feel that they're being misrepresented by the media."

Did you hear about this in the media? No?

But you heard all about the Parkland walkout.

Media bias.
