One of the schools, Lincoln High, saw more than 600 students come out to participate in Friday morning's walk-out.

Students across the USA were urged to walk out of classes to mark the 19th anniversary of the 1999 school shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado which left 13 people dead.

In Atlanta, dozens of students gathered on the steps of the Georgia Capitol and rallied for gun control. Young saying, "We need to make a change, we need to keep the guns in the gun range".

Organizers told the Associated Press that more than 2,600 demonstrations were planned from ME to Hawaii.

"They got shot for no reason", he said. They wielded signs that said things like, "Am I next?"

Around the country today, students, teachers, parents and elected leaders will hold rallies against gun violence. Students from around the nation joined in the walkout against gun violence on the 19th anniversary of the shooting at Columbine High School where 13 people were killed. The group was organized by two high schoolers from different schools who met through social media groups focused on activism: Ali Gershik, 16, a Sonoma Academy sophomore, and Maris Maslow-Shields, 15, a Santa Rosa High School freshman.

Pomp said students at her school may face disciplinary action for the walkout, but consider the march an act of civil disobedience.

"We were kind of like hoping for the best and I think that was the best and all of us were very happy with the turnout", said freshman Tristen Cook.

"Gun violence happened at our school. We're here to stand up and see the change we want to see in the world because if we're not going to take a stand who else is", student Astrid Domniguez said.

The planned protest led to some controversy at South Gate High School that drew the ACLU's attention.
