There's a new controversy following yesterday's massive student walkouts across the country to remember the victims of the Parkland, Florida school shooting.

Before the walkouts, the National Rifle Association's affiliate in the state, the Gun Owners' Action League of Massachusetts, asked its members to video and document the student marches, saying it would like the footage to protect against what it says is an "anti-civil rights agenda."
