Turns out, the “March for Our Lives” gun control campaign has inspired people… to march for their right to self-defense, as prescribed in the Second Amendment.
A Virginia teenager wants America to know that not all students buy into the liberal narrative of gun control and is planning to hold a “March for Our Guns” rally to push this point, WAVY-TV reported.
Aidan Jackson, a 15-year-old freshman at Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach, was bullied at last month’s school walkout for holding a sign that said: “Gun control is not the answer.”
The Virginia Beach Young Republican member said that incident motivated him to take action.
“Someone came up out of the blue, looked at me, read my sign and ripped my sign. The entire school applauded,” he told the NBC affiliate. “It inspired me because they came up to me and said, ‘I don’t necessarily agree with you, but you really are brave to have gone through that.'”
Jackson’s march is planned for April 21 at Mount Trashmore Park, in Virginia Beach.
He is encouraging everyone, to include fellow students, to attend.
“I think everyone has a say,” Jackson said. “The next generation, my generation, will be leading. We want to get them involved as soon as we can.”
Unlike the David Hoggs on the other side of the issue, Jackson said his event is open to those who support gun control, inviting them to come out and hear for themselves why people support the Second Amendment.
As for the brigade that takes great offense over students being attacked for their views on gun control, they’re going to be real busy given the response to Jackson exercising his First Amendment rights.
Here’s a sampling of the vile attacks on the student from Twitter:
gotta be some kind of ri-damn-diculous privilege to see children and people being literally gunned down every single day and think, ‘Gun Control is not the answer’. https://t.co/Tg3QRBpP6z

A gun rally at Mount Trashmore. At a place known for leaking arsenic in its leachate. Perfect! Take big swigs of the groundwater, boy. You and the @NRA deserve it.
