Never let a crisis go to waste... right?

Students storm out of Colorado school shooting vigil in protest of politicians

Survivors of a Colorado school shooting walked out of a vigil for their slain classmate Wednesday night in protest of politicians and other groups using it as a platform for gun control, a local report said.

The students from STEM High School, where two gunmen killed a student and wounded eight others Tuesday, began yelling from the stands that they “wanted to be heard” after two politicians and pro-gun control advocates addressed the crowd, according to the local NBC affiliate, KUSA.

They then stormed out of the vigil after Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and Democratic Congressman Jason Crow addressed the crowd, the Denver Post reported.


They are overplaying their hand as usual.

The politicians should have been asked to leave.

Wrong.
They should not have been brought in at all. Left or right leaning.

The primary function of a high school is secondary education. Turning it into a political rally reduces the role of that school in providing its primary function.

IE shut up and teach.

The students wanted to have a vigil for the young man who was killed in the shooting and they wanted to be able to speak and grieve together as a community. Instead it became an opportunity for those in positions of power to speak out against guns. They should have just let the kids have their vigil and honor the young man who lost his life. I’m glad the students walked out.

Democrats never miss an opportunity to use a crisis to advance their anti American agenda of disarming the law abiding citizen. They are lower than vermin. Good for those students!

Proud of these kids. They’ll receive little praise for their actions. Scum bag politicians hardly miss a beat. Shame on them.

Crow ran on a gun control platform and Bennett has recently announced his candidacy (LOL) to run for POTUS.

When high school kids can see through this crap a mile away, it says much about the legitimacy, or lack thereof, of these two horses arses.

I wish more adults would show the common sense and courage these kids showed.

More disgusting bottom feeders trying to score political points over the bodies of dead children. Sad and pathetic.
