When so much of mainstream media narrative tends to follow the talking points of the day, this site offers counter-points to the narrative students are bombarded with in popular media. When it comes to the 2nd Amendment, it's a safe bet that mainstream media industry will follow their editors' cues and call for violating citizens' constitutionally-protected rights to keep and bear armaments. What does a real debate on this topic look like, and what do real 2nd Amendment advocates have to say for themselves?
"Advocates for this new march say that there is an agenda: gun control. But that’s not the real heart of the march. Students feel compelled to walk out by peer pressure, lest they be labeled uncaring about their fellow students.

“My high school is participating in the walkout on Wednesday, and I am unsure what to do. I am very against gun control and don't want to protest congress for something they are doing right, if that makes sense.

I don’t know if the walkout is more about gun control or honoring the students.”
