"Dodging bullets is not part of the curriculum".

Through very evident anguish and pain, parents like Andrew Pollack, whose 18-year-old daughter Meadow was killed in last Wednesday's school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, begged the president to simply act now to protect all American children from ever facing the same violence.

Ten days later, on March 24, students from Parkland, Florida, where the shooting occurred, are planning their own "March for Our Lives" rally in Washington, D.C. "If standing in the hallway will not work for your school, please designate a safe and secure walk out area (courtyard, café, gymnasium, auditorium or other area)".

During meetings with lawmakers, the students urged them to pass common-sense reforms and not just offer meaningless platitudes.

Lawmakers will probably say that getting a new bill passed is almost impossible with only two and a half weeks left in the legislative session.

"Just a few moments ago, I signed a memorandum directing the attorney general to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns", Trump went on to say from the White House. While Mall said it's not all about athletics, she was glad the walkout organizers took that into consideration.

Although Parkland, Florida is almost 800 miles from Durham, students who attended the rally at Jordan said the shooting there has had a profound impact on their lives. "And we are going to be voting you out".

"Amen! Amen" Other students responded amid cheers. They will compile that video and send it to Congressman Don Young, Salzmann said.

Stoneman Douglas student Kyle Kashuv said most of the lawmakers he met with were receptive and seemed like they wanted to enact change.

"I support banning weapons that fire off 150 rounds in 7 or 8 minutes, weapons that are weapons of war, that serve no objective other than killing the maximum number of people they can, you bet I am", Deutch said. "But you give them a little bit of a bonus".

"I think we have to have sensible gun control", French said. Of countries with at least 10 million people, there are more mass shootings per capita in only Yemen, which has the second-highest per-capita rate of gun ownership (the USA has the highest). The second caller said Cruz was collecting guns and knives and believed "he could be a school shooter in the making".

"The action that I want is compromise", sophomore Jared Rubin said. Because they won't tolerate the status quo.

The outspoken students at Stoneman Douglas have been criticized by conservatives who contend they are being led by left-wing groups who want to ban guns.

"Overall it was really peaceful", she said. Some have also said the students could not possibly organize a national rally by themselves. And, she's actually talked to other lawmakers.

Hogg said students are rising up and are exhausted of ineffective leaders.

The deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida, that took the lives of 17 people, has galvanized a new generation of teen activists to take on gun reform. "And their voice matters". "This is like what happened to my son before", said Sherman's mother Lita.

Hockley herself then added, "After Sandy Hook, they said we wouldn't let this happen again, yet it has continued to happen for five years".

"What can I say that everyone else hasn't already put so eloquently?" he asked, appearing overwhelmed by the media attention. "And, when I saw it was a South Florida high school was shot up, I thought it was mine". Gun violence demands the same kind of urgent national response. Students left their classrooms and organized a peace march.
