Protesters at the March for Our Lives wanted to ban assault weapons but did not know what they are, according to a video published Sunday.
“It’s like a…” began one protester, characterizing the gun. “I kind of do [know what it is] but kind of don’t.”
“‘Assault weapons’…does that sound safe to you?” asked one woman in response.
Many students chose not to answer the question at all.
“The same amount of people die by assault weapons as do car crashes in a given year,” another woman said, but clarified when challenged, saying “but a lot of people die by gun death.”
Protest attendees also commented more generally on the Second Amendment and Constitution.
“I think the Constitution, in and of itself, is outdated,” one woman said. “I don’t necessarily agree with the Second Amendment to begin with.”
“I don’t think it leads to anything good, or productive, or peaceful,” stated another.
