Penn State University freshmen Eric Ciabottonia, 19, and John Bolduc, 18, stood out in the crowd. They weren’t there in support of the March of Our Lives. They were there to offer an opposing opinion in the gun control debate.
“I want to open a dialogue,” said Ciabottonia, who wore a Make America Great Again hat. “I want a diversity of opinions. I’m here for the Second Amendment, for personal liberties.”
While many marchers believe the answer is fewer guns, Bolduc wants the opposite. “I think you’re protecting kids not by taking away guns, but with guns,” he said.
