Community members from central Minnesota are gathering for a "sibling march" as a part of the March for Our Lives movement. Why not raise the ages of those who can purchase guns while also banning bump stocks and not allowing mentally unfit persons to buy guns?

"A majority of Americans (54 percent) say it is more important to control gun violence in the nation than to protect gun rights including 34 percent of gun owners".

Across the country, more than 800 marches have been scheduled for Saturday.

On Saturday, March 24th, Utah students will march from West High School to the State Capitol from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m.

"So it's really important that kids see that in a democracy what your voice is about, how can you use that voice".

They are a response to the shooting last month at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 students and adults dead. Most of these crimes are classified as a "reckless discharge of a firearm", which means shots are irresponsibly fired.

"Through a series of events, we learned that we were not welcome", Robinson said. Survivors are among those leading the march efforts. "We have to use our white privilege now to make sure that all of the people that have died as a result of [gun violence] and haven't been covered the same can now be heard".

"We have safety, we have police", Reese said. "The Danville chapter focuses on local issues because we have a gun violence epidemic". The march in D.C. officially gets underway at noon. "Enough is enough", said Demetri Hoth, a student from MSDHS.

Another March For Our Lives event is planned to take place from 10 a.m.to noon in Park City. Then the group will march to Laura Lee Fellowship House to discuss action plans and food will be served.
