Gun Control Zealots Took Over a STEM School Vigil. So the Students Walked Out.
A vigil was held for the students of the STEM School shooting in Colorado. Vigils are supposed to be peaceful and mournful. Or so the students assumed. Instead, the vigil morphed into gun control zealots throwing an anti-gun rally. So the students walked out and held their own rally. Because they were NOT going to be exploited. (h/t Twitchy)

Organizers of the rally were forced to issue an apology. Maybe one day they'll realize that they're the driving force behind an increase in gun RIGHTS advocates (see Concealed Carry Class Enrollment Spikes in Spite of Gun Control Push and Gun Sales Soar As Leftists Demand More Gun Control).
Does this powerful display of unity among the students signal a cultural shift? Leftist ghouls like Everytown, Mom's Demand, and all the Democrats running for president can't wait more than thirty seconds before exploiting a tragedy. None of them care about the students or any solutions that would actually make schools safer. They just want to dunk on the NRA and exploit students to do so. In the immortal words of Helen Lovejoy, "WON'T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!?"
The children sound like they're tired of being exploited. Maybe it's time for actual solutions.
