By The Daily Wire. Dozens of students at Rockledge High School in Florida walked out of school on Friday in support of the Second Amendment to counter the recent attacks of far-left activists that have been calling for gun bans and a national registry.
Approximately 75 students walked out of class for the 20-minute rally carrying signs that said “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” and “I support the right to bear arms,” Florida Today reported.
“The demonstration was organized by Chloe Deaton, a sophomore, and Anna Delaney, a junior, who are part of Rockledge High’s Criminal Justice and Legal Studies Academy.”

About 75 Rockledge High School Students Walk out of Class to Support Second Amendment
By Florida Today. A group of students from Rockledge High School in Brevard County briefly walked out of class Friday to show their support for the Second Amendment. . .
Deaton — who was wearing a T-shirt that read, “my rights don’t end where your feelings begin” — said the event was meant to clear misconceptions about the Second Amendment, not support or oppose any particular political stances.
After the playing of the national anthem and “God Bless America” over the loudspeakers, she told the group of students, “We were built on certain rights and that was one of the original rights, that we should have the right to bear arms.”
Delaney read a quote from former President Ronald Reagan, who at a 1983 banquet for the National Rifle Association said, “The Constitution does not say that government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution says ‘… the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.'” (Read more from “About 75 Rockledge High School Students Walk out of Class to Support Second Amendment” HERE)
