 Many of the gun rights activists were displaying firearms.

 Some of the protesters made their way to the high school to make their points while the president was meeting with the families.

  1. Fantastic pictures Robin!

  2. Every time I watch this I can feel the emotion I felt that day when my employer asked if I had heard what happened. That moment it felt as though every hair on my arms and head stood on end and froze; something I hope I never feel again. Your presentation here is well done and the music brings in the emotion of the event. Thank you Robin
