But history is full of movements led by students - albeit usually in college, not high school. Legislators have also advanced a measure to arm trained and vetted teachers, an idea Mr Scott has rejected.

The number 17 refers to the 14 students and three adults killed last month in a shooting rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. Students have even gone so far as to plan a walkout on March 14, and join the national march in Washington D.C. This is a great way for students to express their views on gun control and stand up for safety in schools. This was enacted in hopes of forcing potential mass shooters to rethink their actions, rather than providing them with deadly weaponry in the heat of the moment.

"I'm exhausted of living in fear that the school is not safe", said Staton. According to Duffy, kids will just get up and head to their designated spot in the school to meet.

DeVos has said she is open to allowing guns in schools but says the decision should be left to local administrators.

"I don't think you should fight violence with violence", said seventh-grader Liberty Sampson.

For the Kent County High School students who gathered in Trojan Stadium for 17 minutes of silence in a "Walk-Out for Unity", the act was more of a remembrance than a protest.

In an email, Superintendent Nancy Follansbee said the event presents "an opportunity for our students to learn about civic engagement and meaningful approaches to freedom of expression and the right to assembly".

"Enough is enough and it's time for people to hear our voices and understand that we're not OK with coming to school every day terrified for our lives", Adams said.

Students in Parkland, Florida returned to school. "We feel confident that the school in question is a very safe school". "If we tried to artificially contain this, we'd end up with discipline issues. We're trying hard, we don't have all the answers but we are giving it our best and we will keep giving it our best".

The students who reported the threats to the district were praised, but Schmiesing said more students saw the threats and didn't say anything.

He was taken into custody at the high school around 11 a.m. CST Tuesday and charged with making terrorist threats.

Vetesi said she is relieved that high school students who protest - including the ones in her hometown - will not be penalized by their future colleges. "Fortifying our schools won't prevent the next shooting, and will do nothing to keep guns out of the hands of risky people".
