Bronxville High School students demand action on gun control

Students Plan To Walk Out Of Class On Columbine Shooting Anniversary Students To Protest For Tougher Gun Laws In National School Walkout

- On the 19th anniversary of the fatal school shooting at Columbine High School, hundreds of students gathered in Halifax Mall demanding lawmakers enact new gun legislation.

Elsewhere in the US, the National School Walkout was planned in the wake of the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where 17 people were killed.

The National School Walkout was founded by four high school students in CT and takes place on April 20, the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting. The walkout comes a month after students left their schools in protest over inaction on gun control. The gunmen later killed themselves.

Roosevelt High School and Merrill Middle School students wanted to walk out of class to show their support and join students across the country for the National School Walkout. "I'm exhausted of seeing young people die because of decisions that weren't made by them".

Friday was also the 19th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School.

The teach-in was followed by the walkout, which was optional, according to the school.

Over 300 Edison High School students took their protest to Downtown Fresno and the Fresno Unified School District office after walking off campus at 10 am. Some students like Stewart however, said the real change will come when they take to the polls in June.

The latest wave of school walkouts has sparked large demonstrations against gun violence in several cities.

"Young people are constantly silenced because of our age and because we don't have the right to vote yet".

Alpine students who participated in the walkout without being signed out by a parents "are facing 3 days of DAEP - a form of suspension - as well as losing National Honor Society status", reports Marfa Public Radio's Sally Beauvais.

For many local students, the protests served as a statement of endurance to those who thought their energy would fade. But numerous Friday protesters said it was important to demonstrate their continued interest in change.

"I'm not recommending "F's" to anyone here, but if the NRA is giving you a grade, it better be 'F", Blumenthal said.
