March For Our Lives: Best Signs from the Rally

Early Thursday, dozens of bleary-eyed teenagers wearing matching maroon T-shirts gathered in an airport terminal here to head out of town, even though schoolwork was piling up at the end of the academic quarter. "They get that this was a huge tragedy, and I think that one of the things that has led people to be so distraught about the dysfunctionality of our politics has been the inability of sort of the adults in the room to come together and agree to talk in a productive way".

Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas who survived the Parkland, Florida, shooting in February are leading hundreds of thousands in the March For Our Lives demonstration Saturday in Washington, D.C. Sibling marches are additionally scheduled to occur in various cities across the United States.

The march is at 10 a.m. MT (noon in Washington). More than 800 marches are planned worldwide, according to the group Everytown for Gun Safety. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., was shot at a constituent event in 2011.

Lauren lost many friends at school that day. At a school in rural Arkansas, school officials reportedly paddled three students to punish them for walking out.

"We knew that we had such a unique platform", Schneid said. Her argument was she would rather support the Second Amendment "right to bear arms" and insisted that this incident was not caused by guns but was the result of a flawed legal reporting system.

"When I first went back". Yared said she once eschewed politics but has become politically active since the shooting.

Over 800 protests are taking place across the U.S. calling for stricter gun control laws. "We can try to prevent shootings and bullying all we want, but we can never actually stop them".

"We're setting an example", Zuehls said.

Alondra Gittleson, 16, has lobbied lawmakers before - she was one of a group of Stoneman Douglas students who went to Tallahassee as the Florida legislature weighed, and ultimately voted down, an assault-weapons ban.
