“Crazy ol’ Bernie Sanders is a hypocrite. He literally had an armed police detail following him at the student walkout today. If you are protesting guns, you forfeit protection by them. Next time carry rocks to protect yourself,” tweeted Students For Trump founder Ryan Fournier.

We’re with students protesting gun violence

Daily Caller reports:
A national school walk-out was held today by students protesting gun violence across the country, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders joined students in DC marching on the U.S. capitol.
So did his armed guards. […]
Sanders began a live stream of his speech on his Facebook page, which featured him wading through the crowd of cheering students and shaking hands. As Sanders traveled through the gun-control crowd, at least three heavily armed Capitol police officers could be seen protecting him and clearing a way for the Senator through the students. Multiple times in the live feed, the police can be heard asking the students to step back and move away from Sanders.
