Emma González, a senior at Marjory Douglas High School and a survivor of the mass school shooting that claimed 17 innocent lives, delivered an incredibly powerful speech at the March For Our Lives rally in Washington DC. today.

The NRA did not immediately return an email seeking comment, but on social media posts, the organization took aim at the student organizers behind Saturday's demonstrations.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday" Kasky and fellow student Delaney Tarr said the demonstrations in Washington, D.C., across the country and overseas showed youth were committed to tackling the issue of gun violence.

CBS News journalists were also embedded with parent Andrew Pollack, whose daughter, Meadow, was one of the 17 people who died during the shooting.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to attend the march in Washington, D.C., with smaller gatherings to take place in hundreds of cities across the world. During an anti-gun rally in Florida shortly after the shooting, Gonzalez established a catchphrase for the movement: "We call B.S".

"We are not just marching to end school violence".

Then she said nothing for four minutes and 26 seconds.

Kyle Kashuv, a Second Amendment-supporting student at the Parkland, Fla., high school that was the site of the shooting massacre last month, on Sunday called out a classmate who helped organize the pro-gun control March for Our Lives, based on a quote made to Fox News.

"It's time to change our positions", he said.

Since the shooting, Pollack has become an advocate for school safety over gun control.

She added the Parkland students seem to have a really good shot at a sustained campaign because the children are diverse and joining forces with others, minorities in cities that have been heavily affected by gun violence. I, too, am a victim, a survivor and a victor of gun violence.

Kasky said: "The youth of America need to step up and start voting".

Parkland teens have voiced their support for the Black Lives Matter movement and also met with students in Chicago, a city plagued by gun violence for years.

González stood at the podium and stared resolutely at the crowd, which broke into a "Never again!" chant.

Ainsley Skelly, a Grade 11 student at Nepean High School and one of the organizers, said, "We want to show other students, Americans, that we're with them - and we want to march alongside them".

"Welcome to the revolution", said Cameron Kasky, who was the first student speaker at the massive March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

'I would tell them to focus their energy on something that's achievable that we could accomplish right now.

"To everyone wondering why I'm not wearing shoes in the cover: I didn't feel like it", she wrote, "plain and simple".
