    Colorado Students Walk Out Of School Shooting Vigil After It Turns Political

    Colorado Students Walk Out Of School Shooting Vigil After It Turns Political

    Good on them!

    Colorado students walked out of an event billed as a vigil for Kendrick Castillo, an 18-year-old killed in a shooting at his school on Tuesday, when prominent speakers attempted to turn it into a rally for gun control. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colorado) and Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colorado) each took a turn calling for gun control at the Douglas County event before students streamed out in protest.


    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Students then returned to the gymnasium, taking over the event, complaining about adults politicizing what they hoped would be a remembrance of their friend Castillo, a young man with an interest in robotics who had heroically rushed a shooter. Students also gave Bennet a piece of their mind, telling him to focus on “mental health” issues.

    These soul sucking demoncrats won't even wait until the bodies are cold. Despicable...

    There might be hope for our country yet, when the young call out the politicians using them
