Bernie Sanders attended a gun control event today which was part of the left wing school walkout organized in part by leaders of the Women’s March. Bernie got a hero’s welcome from the left leaning crowd despite the fact that he was being protected by two armed policemen.

Under Heavily-Armed Police Guard, Bernie Sanders Addresses Anti-Gun Rally
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.
In multiple locations, students hit the streets and parking lots in their respective school districts to “walk out’” in solidarity with the Parkland students who are calling for more gun control after their school attacked by a deranged gunman. 17 students died in the attack. The former presidential candidate was part of a group of progressive congressmen addressing the Washington, DC march.
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.

Guns are bad. Unless you’re a politician.
