Students to march in support of NRA, 2nd Amendment

Second Amendment (gun + flag)Expect to hear a lot from students about the Second Amendment this weekend. That includes students who support the constitutional right to bear arms.

Members of "March For Our Rights: Students Defending the Second Amendment" are planning a peaceful protest on Saturday to counter what they call the David Hogg "gun control protest" at the headquarters of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in Virginia.

"We're going to be there to show support for the NRA and to show support for the Second Amendment," says Xena Amirani, chair and executive director of March for Our Rights.

David Hogg is one of the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February. While he says on his Twitter account that he is "pro 2A" – meaning a supporter of the Second Amendment – Hogg also pushes what he calls "gunsense," an idea that more can be done to keep families and communities safe from gun violence.

"We want America to know that David Hogg does not speak for the millions of young people all over the country who support the Second Amendment," Amirani continues. "We want respectful dialogue and encourage our members to share the facts on why gun control is not the answer."

March For Our Rights held marches around the country to encourage students and other supporters of the Second Amendment to come forward.
