Frank Miniter: Student walkout at Colorado shooting vigil is a good sign

The very public scene of hundreds of Colorado students and their parents walking out of a vigil that was turned into political theater by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence was so embarrassing that the gun control group actually issued an apology.

Before leaving the Wednesday night event, students shouted, in front of journalists who the Brady Campaign invited: “this is not for us,” “political stunt” and “we are people, not a statement.”

The Brady Campaign had portrayed the event as a vigil in memory of Kendrick Castillo, a student hero who died from gunshot wounds after he and two other students charged one of the attackers Tuesday at the Highlands Ranch STEM School in Colorado.

It was a memorial service for Kendrick Castillo, who is a hero. It is a not a political rally.

Good for the students for walking out.

No politics at a memorial service.

Typical of the "Scary Brady Bunch" to turn a memorial service into a political shit-show.

It's interesting that the two most recent shootings had people charging the shooter(s) and resulted in a much lower body count.  Also interesting how the campus police in NC had no problem entering the building, as opposed to the Broward Co S.O. "led" by *cough* Sheriff *cough* Isreal.
You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.
