The man with the AR-15 rifle (part 2)
The Mile Square, Indianapolis – March 24, 2018. “Protect kids, not guns!” they chanted – the old, the young, the kids, at the youth-led "March for Our Lives" anti-gun violence rally in the Mile Square.
“Protect kids, not guns! Protect kids, not guns! Protect kids, not guns!”
“I think my best bet is to make sure you don’t have a damn gun to start with,” said the male school teacher in the blue jacket to the man with the AR-15 rifle.
The man with the rifle turned to a hooded woman who was competiting for his attention. “Are you a teacher?” he asked her.
“Yes I am,” said the woman.
“What are you going to do when someone gets inside your lockdown?" asked the rifleman. "You’re going to wait your turn to die. You’re going to wait your turn to die.”
Then the man in the blue jacket was back up front, his finger extended, poking the air within twelve inches of the rifleman's chest. The man said, “What I'm afraid of is the ignorance that makes you want to show up with a weapon like that."
“Why do you think I want to make you afraid of me?” said the rifleman.
“Because you’ve shown up with that weapon in a public place!" said the teacher, his voice now raised above the roar of the crowd.
A fervent female in a red jacket instantly appeared to the rifleman. “Responsible guns owners don’t
walk down the street with a machine gun!” she shouted.
“That’s not a machine gun,” said a young man to the right side of the rifleman.
“What’s a semi-automatic assault rifle,” said a nearby teenage girl.
Then the large group chanted, “Shame on you! Shame on you! Shame on you!”
