Tigard HS to participate in 'Stand for the Second'

But "Stand for the Second was organized by 18-year-old Will Riley, a student from Carlsbad, New Mexico, who wanted to do something to counter the anti-gun sentiment in the country".

The meaning behind the 16 minutes he's allotted for the walkout is also a direct nod to the anti-gun violence walkout in March: "In the spirit of civility with school districts around the country, we are asking for one minute less than the other side received", according to the website.

About 1,800 students attend La Cueva High School.

Although the pro-Second Amendment walkout did not garner the same level of establishment media coverage as gun control walkouts, the Marion Star reported approximately 150 middle school students at Caledonia, Ohio's River Valley Middle School walked out in support of gun rights. Break that down to 16 minutes and you have 91 people using a gun responsibly and correctly. I am not a shooter. "But in the hands of good guys, they can protect us all", he said.

"I believe in natural rights, and the writings of (English philosopher John) Locke and the Constitution", he said. About 50 students lined the sidewalk outside the school where they held several moments of silence for first responders and the military.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf said he believes that most, if not all, people are supporters of the Second Amendment. "We are all unique and different with our own ideas". "I do think there needs to be stricter laws, like the kid in Florida should have been arrested long before he got a gun".

Students in Columbia Falls are fierce defenders of the right to bear arms, but today, some of them said they want to see some of the same gun control measures that survivors of the Parkland shooting advocate for, like keeping guns away from people with violent criminal and domestic assault records.

In response, district Superintendent Greg Rodriguez said school officials worked collaboratively with Riley as he planned the walkout.

"It protects all of the other amendments", Giordano said. "This forgets to mention the 17 minutes were for each fallen Eagle at Stoneman Douglas".
