David Hogg Organizes Another Walkout, But His Conservative Classmate Has a Different Plan

0

David Hogg and his classmates recently organized and successfully executed a national school walkout in remembrance of those killed in the tragic Parkland shooting and to also raise awareness for increased gun control. Now, he’s organizing another one.

Hogg tweeted Monday that the walkout would be happening Friday, the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting in Littleton, Colorado, in “1100+ schools across the country.” Hogg noted that the Columbine community would be “committing their day to community service”:

However, not everyone is in favor of Hogg’s walkout.

Kyle Kashuv, a classmate of Hogg’s, is organizing a livestream featuring many conservative speakers on the same day.

Walking out during school hours is counterproductive. School is where we should be learning about our constitution and our history so one can make a well-educated opinion on the gun debate.

Walking out after school would be commendable, but this isn’t. I get the significance of the time and date, but wouldn’t the time be more sanctified if we did charity, learnt about the events, or helped ensure this never happens again?

I am going to use the time to have live speakers speak on Facebook about anything related to the Constitution that they choose. I welcome both sides of the debate.

Speakers so far include: Dr. Gorka, Matt Schlapp, Dick Heller, Dr. Kelli Ward, Kurt Schlichter, and we’re working on a few superstars.

He tweeted Sunday that he is working on having one speaker every 15 minutes “go live on Facebook at 10:00 AM-11:00 AM on Friday, to discuss ways to save lives without infringing on 2A and the importance of mental health and not bullying”:

Kashuv is also working on getting Turning Point USA founder and executive director Charlie Kirk to speak at his high school but has been denied because “non-school sponsored, student-initiated guest speaker assemblies/meetings are not permitted to take place on campus.”
