On Wednesday a Minnesota high school student joined his classmates who were doing the National School Walkout. He was escorted out by his principal for carrying a sign that said, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”
Kerry MacDonald, a student at New Prague High School in New Prague, Minnesota, posted the video on Facebook. The video does not show much of what happened before or after the student was singled-out by the principal.
Per the post on Facebook:
Kids at our school today walked out, in honor of the 17 students killed in Florida. Students held signs that said, “Arm our teachers” they had two signs. A student walked out without saying a word peacefully put up his sign which said “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” he was escorted off the property by our principal and threatened to be put into a police car. This violates the first amendment and makes me sick that they can do whatever they want. Please make this go viral
It should come as no surprise that this went completely viral. It has now been viewed over 4 million times and has over 185,000 shares.
