Pascagoula High School Participates in National Walkout Day

Student walkouts protesting gun violence planned at San Diego County schools

"We want to show Congress and politicians we are not standing by, we are not silent anymore", said 17-year-old Brenna Levitan, who was at the protest with her mother. We're going to have to live with whatever laws that the current lawmakers make today.

Students spoke, and then the names of the victims, along with short biographies, were read. In response, Keranen reached out and stated gathering up other students. Most of the group walked around the flagpole in front of the school. At others, just one or two walked out in defiance of administrators. Young people are just really taking charge of their own lives.

"Enough is enough. People are done with being shot", said Iris Fosse-Ober, a senior at Washburn High School in Minneapolis.

But not all students in Florida were in favour of gun control.

In Granada Hills, California, students and teachers arranged themselves on the football field at Granada Hills Charter High School to spell out the word "ENOUGH", while a gong sounded 17 times for the 17 people who were killed in Parkland.

As the demonstrations unfolded, the NRA responded by posting a photo on Twitter of a black rifle emblazoned with an American flag.

Speakers denounced the National Rifle Association (NRA), the powerful USA gun lobby, and demanded that Congress enact tougher laws on gun ownership.

Newton attended an event at Westside High School, where students peacefully assembled outside for several minutes before heading back into class.

But they all felt like normal school assemblies or activities, not like the grassroots protest the walkout began as. Baraga Area Schools held a student assembly. "Time for action!" they chanted.

A Minnesota high school student was booted off campus by the school's principal, reportedly over a pro-Second Amendment sign that he brought to a school walkout against gun violence on Wednesday.

York Catholic High School student council president Brian Hand said "why would you walk out of school, rather why wouldn't you make 17 new friends, or why wouldn't you compliment 17 people?"

"Every one of these individuals could have died that day".

Metro also says that bicycles, large coolers, or oversized items will not be allowed on trains on March 24. On March 24th, there will be a "March for our Lives" rally at Waterfront Park.

Despite those who used the moment for the wrong reasons, Brandy said she was "proud and happy" of all those who truly used the moment for what it was created to do.

Trump momentarily signaled support for curbing access to guns, notably by raising the age for purchases from 18 to 21, but now stands accused of bowing to the NRA.
