Teenage Co-Founder of ‘March for Our Lives’ Gun-Control Movement Quits, Says He Has Regrets

Cameron Kasky, a co-founder of the ‘March for Our Lives’ gun-control movement created by Parkland high-school students after the mass-shooting there, has resigned from the organization. He says he discovered there is a lot he didn’t know, and he regrets some of the things he said in the public spotlight. -GEG

March For Our Lives co-founder Cameron Kasky told Fox News radio on Wednesday that he has left the organization that he helped create and that he has regrets about some of the things that he has said since he entered the public spotlight.

Kasky told Fox News Radio’s Guy Benson and Marie Harf: “I’m very regretful of a lot of the mistakes that I’ve made along the way.”

“One of the things I never really did was watch myself,” Kasky said. “If I was on a screen I kind of tried to run away from it. I’m not entirely sure why. But, looking back on that it’s like you said, you touched off on this very well in the intro, I’m not going to kick myself for it because I’m 17. Despite the fact that I thought I did at the time, I don’t know everything.”

Kasky admitted that when he attacked Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) during CNN’s town hall event that it was his intent to “embarrass Rubio and that was my biggest flaw.”

Kasky said he would redo the conversation that he had with Rubio and that he has plans to meet with him next month where he’ll bring up how he spoke to him during the town hall event.

“This summer when March For Our Lives went on the summer tour that we embarked on, I met that person in Texas who’s got that semi-automatic weapon because that’s how they like to protect their family,” Kasky continued. “I met the 50-some-odd-percent of woman who are pro-life, even though I thought it was preposterous that a woman could be pro-life and not pro-choice at the time. I learned that a lot of our issues politically come from a lack of understanding of other perspectives and also the fact that so often young conservatives and young liberals will go into debate, like I said earlier, trying to beat the other one as opposed to come to an agreement.”

Gun-Control Activists Use March for Our Lives to register 5,000 New Voters

Gun-control activists at the March for Our Lives partnered with HeadCount, a supposedly non-partisan group, and registered nearly 5,000 voters at March for Our Lives rallies in thirty cities across the US.  HeadCount founder Andy Bernstein says they registered more people to vote than on any other day in its 15-year history.  On Sunday, HeadCount released a guide on how to conduct school and community voter registration drives.

The gun control activists behind Saturday’s March for Our Lives rally enlisted the help of several voter registration organizations with the aim of getting people to vote in favor of limiting Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

HeadCount, a 501(c)3 and 4945(f) organization that bills itself as a nonpartisan group that “promotes participation in democracy” partnered with the March for Our Lives and registered nearly 5,000 voters at March for Our Lives rallies throughout the U.S. in 30 cities.

A post on the group’s Facebook page announced that the organization registered “4,800 new voters” in one day at the March for Our Lives.

HeadCount founder Andy Bernstein said that with the help of nearly 2,000 volunteers who canvassed at Saturday’s march, his organization registered more people to vote Saturday than any other day in its 15-year history.

“This is the first time we’ve ever done a march,” Bernstein told BuzzFeed News.

The voter registration numbers from HeadCount do not include online voter registration and the number of voters registered through other voter registration organizations, according to HeadCount spokesperson Aaron Ghitelman.

Although the organization mostly focused on registering voters at concerts and music events before the March for Our Lives, the father of one of the gun control student activists at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School convinced the organization to partner with the anti-gun march.

Ghitelman told CNN that the father of Marjory Stoneman Douglas activist Cameron Kasky got in touch with the organization to get the group to register voters at the March for Our Lives.

Ghitelman told Breitbart News that HeadCount decided to show up at the march because when there is such a “groundswell of energy that people ask us to come [to their event], we show up.”

After the march, the organization announced that it would focus on getting high school students registered to vote. On Sunday, HeadCount released a guide on how to conduct school and community voter registration drives.

Leftists at Anti-Gun ‘March for Our Lives’ Shoot Themselves in the Foot

Fleccas Talks attended the March for Our Lives in Los Angeles and found that many of the attendees want all guns banned (except those in the possession of government agents and private security services that are rigidly controlled by the government.
