Colorado Students Furious When Politicians Turn Memorial for Student’s Death Into Anti-Gun RallyCrime

A group of students angrily walked out of school after a bunch of politicians turned a memorial to a murdered student into a crass anti-gun rally on Thursday.

The vigil, which was being held to honor student Kendrick Castillo who was murdered by a pair of anti-Trump leftists, was being attended by a large number of students at the STEM school in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.

Castillo was killed after rushing one of the shooters.

Eight other kids were shot that day, but Castillo was the only fatality. Police arrested transgender girl Alec McKinney and anarchist and Trump hater Devon Erickson for the ghastly crime.

But students were very unhappy with the memorial event put on by the left-wing Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

As The Blaze reported:

Nearly 2,000 people attended the event at the STEM School Highlands Ranch High School, which was organized by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet (D) and Rep. Jason Crow (D) spoke at the event and used the shooting to renew their call for gun control.

When the anti-gun politicians began politicizing the event, some student began calling out “mental health” because they feel the issue is not about guns, but mental health.

Other students cried out, “political stunt” and “we are people, not a statement” as the politicians ruined the event.

Local reporter Kyle Clark shared a touching photo of the students who left the school vigil to hold their own.

Clark captioned the photo, “Frustrated, crying and angry, #STEMschool shooting victims hold an impromptu vigil in the rain Wednesday after leaving a gun-control vigil they felt inappropriately politicized their trauma. (They asked that I not photograph their faces close up, and I respected their wishes.)”

For its part, the left-wing, anti-American Brady Campaign apologized.

“We are deeply sorry any part of this vigil did not provide the support, caring and sense of community we sought to foster and facilitate and which we know is so crucial to communities who suffer the trauma of gun violence.”
