At one point, schools were safe havens. But in the years to come, students have lost their lives in school shootings. The latest was the Parkland Florida, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Students have had enough. While the President is around here talking about arming trained teachers in the class, students want better gun control and are taking a stand. ABC News reports students across the states are doing a national school walk out to rally in solidarity to end gun violence, just a month after 17 people were shot to death in the Parkland High School. The students are rallying today in a call on Congress to pass tighter gun control laws. Check out what a few people posted on social media. And as far as the coward, Parkland school shooter, Nikolas Cruz could be facing the death penalty if prosecutors get their way, according to TMZ. By the way, Florida uses lethal injection for the death penalty.
Remember why we are walking out. We are walking out for my friends that passed, all children that have been taken because of gun violence. We are walking out for the empty desks in my classes, and the unsaid goodbyes. This epidemic of School shootings must stop. #Enoughwalkout— Lauren Hogg (@lauren_hoggs) March 14, 2018
