Over the weekend, tens of thousands of protesters flocked to Washington D.C. to demand gun control in the wake of the Parkland, Florida school shooting on Valentine’s Day.
The “March For Our Lives” protests have been criticized for ties to far-left wing backers, including George Soros, and now, the presence of armed security to protect the anti-gun demonstrators, including the D.C. Police and the National Guard.

Many social media users and counter-protesters found it ironic that the protesters, many of whom have called for an outright repeal of the Second Amendment itself, had no problem with the armed security.

Celebrities such as George Clooney, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Cher, and Will Smith, all flocked to the event to push the liberal Hollywood agenda and for publicity – and all were protected by armed security, a fact that social media users did not fail to notice.
