After Staging Anti-Gun Walkout, School Paints Over Students’ Pro-2A Message
by Cillian Zeal
A pro-NRA message left on a school’s “spirit rock” by pro-Second Amendment students in Massachusetts was painted over by school officials the day after it had been painted, Blue Lives Matter reports.
Anti-gun protesters at Groton-Dunstable Regional High School in Groton who left a similar message supporting their cause on National Walkout Day, however, did not have their message painted over.
Senior Andrew Wilson, 18, said that the rock was used for a variety of purposes, usually involving advertising of some sort. “It gets painted continuously throughout the year,” he told Blue Lives Matter. “Sometimes it’s for school plays, or sports, town events, or even the National Walkout, for example.” While his community is generally liberal, Wilson said he and a group of five other Groton-Dunstable seniors have been questioning the objectivity of the teaching regarding the issue.
