Miami Heat To Wear Patches In Honor Of Parkland Shooting Victims

Parents students and community members gathered at Pine Trails Park for a sunset vigil in honor of the victims of the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School shooting

Hundreds of students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, rallied Wednesday at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee to pressure lawmakers to approve tougher gun control laws one week after one of the most deadly us school shootings. They included 18-year-old senior Diego Pfeiffer, who says he appreciated the support from Tallahassee students who welcomed them.

"Your children might become victims, too", Yared said. "And we're going to be voting you out". "I can vote, and I know who I am not voting for!" They told the 500 students and parents waiting for them that they are fighting to protect all students.

The mass shooting at a Florida high school has inspired a growing youth-led protest movement.

Pinellas high schools were preparing Wednesday for a widespread student demonstration at noon in support of students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High.

Walkouts have been reported in various states, including Florida, Colorado, Minnesota and IL, where some school administrators said they were instructed to allow students to walk out peacefully, while others, like those in the eastern Texas city of Needville, said they had a zero tolerance policy toward such demonstrations.

CNN will hold a nationally televised town hall at 9 p.m. Wednesday with survivors, parents, two USA senators and a representative of the National Rifle Association. "We are coming after every single one of you, demanding that you take action". "We will discipline no matter if it is one, fifty, or five hundred students involved". That includes a bill that would have allowed designated people to carry guns on school grounds attached to a place of worship.

"I ask that we keep this bill in the conversation about the solution to combat mass shootings alive", McGhee said. "And that's what we're going to be". Let us know in the comments section below.

Survivors of the Florida school shooting and others marched Wednesday to the state's capitol to rally for new gun regulations.

Students from Stoneman Douglas have a busy schedule of meetings Wednesday, including audiences with Governor Rick Scott, state attorney general Pam Bondi, and leaders of both the state House and Senate.

"After first graders were gunned down at Sandy Hook, what did you do?"

The Parkland students have also organized an event in Washington for March 24th called "March For Our Lives". "But then the SWAT comes in and I thought they were here to rescue me", Mr. Prado said.

A group of young people in Washington also joined on the day's rally standing outside the White House to pressure action from President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

She said her years at the Parkland high school were the best four years of her life. "I want to talk to as many people who who could actually change law in the state of Florida".

Instead, he said they were all advocating "small steps" to change the state of gun safety. The AR-15 is not a self-defense weapon. The slogans referred to their peer, Emma Gonzalez, who recently used the phrase in an impassioned speech denouncing lawmakers for inaction on gun control.
