Students walk out at Woodland Park H.S. in support of 2nd amendment

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday morning, dozens of students walked out of Woodland Park High School, in support of gun laws. 

Almost a month after a nationwide protest, where students walked out of class in memory of the Parkland, Florida school shooting victims and to send a message for lawmakers to change gun laws, these students say they wanted their voices heard. 

The school district told News 5, students would receive the same consequences as those last month- if they were outside past their advisory period, they would be counted as a tardy. 

Many students said the crowd didn't completely surprise them, but those who organized the event said they were shocked so many students came out. 

Students gave speeches, waved flags, and chanted for about a half hour, in support of gun rights. 

This demonstration not only brought out students, but parents, who wanted to support their students. 

Michael Podemski, who owns a gun shop in Woodland Park said seeing the students made him proud. 

'This day and age we've got people who are so willing to throw away their rights,' said Podemski.
