The event follows last week's National School Walkout, when high school students around the country left class to hold a moment of silence for the Parkland victims.

My memory from this day is a blur.

Is there a way to watch if I can't attend?

My city and school are changed forever. Because this this is not cutting it, he said, pointing at the white-domed Capitol.

Haring, who grew up in Arkansas, has been a gun owner his entire adult life.

"Congress, you can not hide in your offices anymore", he said.

Added Beth Forsman, of Corte Madera, who has three daughters: "Where we failed, these kids will succeed, and if we can be the wind beneath their wings, I'm privileged to do that". You are correct that numerous studies have shown firearm ownership has statistical ties to increases in violent crime and a number of NRA talking points, to a broad degree, have been challenged quite convincingly by a number of outlets and studies such as this one by Stanford researchers, which examines whether or not guns make us safer.

In fact, this is new for her whole community, she says. A sniper in the October 1 Las Vegas mass shooting used such a device to kill 58 concert-goers.

Since then, the fight over gun safety has taken on a momentum not seen before. For example, after a 1998 shooting in CT, lawmakers enacted an extreme risk protection order (ERPO) law. There were several warning signs in the behavior of the Parkland shooter, and so an extreme risk order most likely could have stopped him.

Evidence of these risks have been very present even in the weeks following the Parkland shooting as a teacher at Dalton High School in Dalton, Ga. locked his classroom and fired a shot through an exterior window on February 28. One of his sons was shot in the face, shattering his jaw; the other was trampled. The terror that students across this nation have experienced has resulted in a loss of trust in our system.

According to Biller, 842 March for Our Lives marches were expected to happen Saturday in every state and across the globe.

This frightful tragedy should have been prevented by the adults who have been voted into power.

"We want to send a message to politicians that they need to do something, you know".

"Her death - along with the many others across the nation - has haunted me over these past five weeks, and will continue to stay with me throughout my life".

The only congressional legislation that now has broad bipartisan support is the Fix NICS Act, which aims to reform the National Instant Criminal Background Check System by improving data collection for state and national law enforcement agencies.
