Thousands of people filled a park near Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School at a “March for Our Lives” rally near the site of last month’s school massacre in Parkland, Florida.
Saturday’s rally in South Florida had the feel of a campaign event. Students wore maroon T-shirts — the school’s color — and chanted slogans such as “Enough is enough.” They held signs that read, “why do your guns matter more than our lives?” and “our ballots will stop bullets.”
Organizers said 20,000 people were attending the rally.
After the rally, participants will march 2 miles to Stoneman Douglas. They will pass the school in silence to honor the 17 victims of the Feb. 14 shooting.
Conservative high school student CJ Pearson decided to make a video about the #MarchForOurLives rallies taking place across the nation. The best part of Pearson’s video? He uses facts — you know, the thing that Democrats really hate — and history to explain why the Second Amendment is vital to the American way of life.
Pearson is ON POINT.
My generation is full of snowflakes who have been duped into believing that the 2nd amendment should be discarded so here’s a quick history lesson. #MarchForOurLives
Look at history. Look at what happened to the unarmed citizenry. Our Founding Fathers put the Second Amendment in place to protect Americans from a tyrannical government. They feared a powerful government. Taking away that fundamental right goes against everything America stands for.
