March for Our Lives protests gun violence across the US

March for Our Lives protests gun violence across the US

Alonzo Pennington, the candidate, works half the year as a hunting guide.

Heather Gooze, a survivor of the October 1 shooting on the Strip, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee past year on the need for gun control measures and a ban on bump stocks, devices that accelerate a semi-automatic rifle's rate of fire.

Bump stocks? "A bump stock makes your gun inaccurate and it makes it malfunction".

"You can own a hunting rifle or a pistol".

"It means we want more measures", Kilgore College student Joshah Fielding told her classmate, "so tragedies like school shootings won't occur".

And we will not stop pushing forward until politicians decide to value our lives more than gun maker profits. Over the last few weeks, I participated in my school's walkout to honor the victims of gun violence.

Because numerous demonstrators were children, authorities in the nation's capital said they were taking extra security precautions. "And I feel like I made a difference when I was here in December".

"I think it's a little ridiculous", Benjamin Johnson, 21, from NY, said of the March for Our Lives event. Please do not wait to act on improving gun policies that ensure safety for America, because our lives are not disposable.

"It's been hard", Patafie said.

That's not to say they haven't faced challenges.

"And if places like Marshall County and Florida don't remind us of that, I'm not sure what will".

Medical tents staffed by volunteers line the march route, doubling as gathering points where people can find one another if accidentally separated.

Students from Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School; other survivors of gun violence; José Andrés, humanitarian and world-renowned chef; Miles McKenna, Youtube star of MilesChronicals; and singer-songwriter Alex G will join.

'Anybody who's in high school right now has been growing up on school violence, he said. One other boy was injured in the gunfire.

Both are recovering well and are back running track again.

"If they weren't listening", Hill said, "they are now".

Most of the time, this question stays in the background.

Here's everything you need to know about the March for our Lives. "Our youth-led movement can't just end with the walkout, it has to continue on, and this is the ideal opportunity for me to keep the momentum going". Metal detectors at school entrances may have to become the new normal for suburban districts. Clement's -located in the more affluent neighborhood of Lincoln Park, saying they would send financial assistance. And they also see a space where gun rights and gun regulation overlap.

The March for Our Lives rally started at 10 a.m.at Jack Poole Plaza, where students gave impassioned speeches. I wanted to speak out, but I also wanted to better understand the gun laws. I've grown up around people who hunt.

By mid-afternoon Saturday the rallies had proceeded peacefully, with small and scattered counter-protests by opponents of stricter gun control.

"The first step is to accept that we have a problem", Light said, adding that things like bulletproof desks in classrooms won't resolve the underlying problem.

The incident nearly immediately raised questions regarding further regulation and a potential ban of all firearms while also fostering a counter-argument that a better way to protect students and schools from these situations in the future would be to arm teachers and elevate security measures.

"Hopefully it will change people's minds and affect them in a different way", McCrae said of the rally, which she hoped will make people finally listen to Baltimore kids' calls for an end to violence. But after survivors and their supporters flooded the state capital, lawmakers passed stronger gun laws. "I really like the idea of different permits and different hoops you have to jump through for the different kind of guns", she says. "It's just making our schools and communities safer".

"We've grown up knowing this could happen to us", Stone said. "This is not just about us".
