Students across the country are expected to walk out of their classrooms today to show their support for the Second Amendment.
The national event, called "Stand for the Second," encourages students who are against gun control to walk out of school for 16 minutes. The event was created by a high school student in New Mexico named Will Riley as a response to the recent student anti-gun protests. He says, "I'm watching the news and I see they're saying, 'Well 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.'" (USA Today)
This is something I like seeing. Kids from both sides of the opinion of the gun debate. Kids are going to grow up and run this country and they need to know where they stand. I for one...Stand for the Second!"
