STEM School students WALKED OUT of vigil after Democrats made it about gun control


Last night there was a vigil at the STEM school in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, where one student died in a school shooting this week and eight others were wounded. But students quickly walked out of the vigil when Democrats began to politicize it for the purposes of gun control:

STEM School students walked out of a vigil tonight after @RepJasonCrow & @SenatorBennet spoke. Students said their grief was being politicized. They later returned, took the mic, and some said they didn’t want to be used to promote gun control. #copolitics #9NEWS

One of the big reasons they walked out was from this Mom’s Demand Action activist:

Ryan Saavedra@RealSaavedra

This is the woman that multiple people I talked to identified as the one who angered students and caused them to storm out of the vigil because they felt like she was lying, using them, heavily politicizing the tragedy, and trying to capitalize on their pain.


Some students began their own impromptu vigil:

Others students took over the main vigil themselves:

Gun control org @bradybuzz apologizes for #STEMshooting vigil. Students walked out saying their grief was being politicized. “We are deeply sorry any part of this vigil did not provide the support, caring & sense of community we sought to foster and facilitate” #9NEWS #copolitics
