Students Support Second Amendment

But Douglas didn’t join his Advanced Placement government classmates who walked out of school on March 14, along with droves of other students in schools across the country. Instead, he sat at his desk and caught up on other classwork with about eight or 10 others who remained. Douglas said, simply put, he didn’t agree with what he felt was the real message of the walkouts: calling for stricter gun laws.

“The Second Amendment is just as important as all of the other amendments, and if we start taking away one of the amendments, then what’s next?” Douglas said last week. “I think we need to stand up for what we believe in, and we can’t let anyone walk all over us and take away what we believe in.”

Douglas, along with seven other members of the group Saratoga County Teenage Republicans, shared their thoughts about recent walkouts and the student-driven push for tighter gun control. Citing family hunting traditions and the importance of protecting one’s self and home, the students offered different perspectives from those dominating the debate in recent weeks.
