Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv is countering the April 20 anti-gun walkout with a pro-gun event featuring speakers who will address ways to make schools safe without infringing on Second Amendment rights.

Friday’s walkout is the second since the Parkland shooting and is ubiquitously aimed at calling attention to the April 20, 1999, Columbine attack.

But on April 19, 2018, Kashuv told Breitbart News that walkouts are misguided. He said, “Walkouts don’t work. They are a waste of time and they’re counterproductive. They ruin the school system and they ruin the entire day for kids. Additionally, [a walkout] doesn’t solve anything; it doesn’t push policy.”

Kashuv has pulled together conservative, pro-gun voices for a live stream event wherein students can be educated on ways to make schools safer without infringing on Second Amendment rights. He said, “Let’s educate the kids. Let’s teach every single kid what there is know about the Second Amendment, about this debate.”

He described his event on April 15, tweeting:

Kashuv’s event can be seen as a livestream on his twitter feed @kylekashuv. He tweeted a list of confirmed speakers:

Kashuv observed, “Doing a walkout is going to get CNN and MSNBC views and it’s going to be great for their ratings but in reality nothing’s going to change.” He stressed that education is the key to securing change and education is the goal of his livestream event.
