Gun Control March Set For Saturday

Poll: Majority of high school students favor gun control

"In the wake of the tragedy on February 14th, we as students, as youth, decided that if adults weren't going to take action, we would", Wind said, referencing the tragic Parkland shooting.

"I think teachers should have guns", he said, echoing a proposal made by Trump after the Parkland killings.

In addition to Saturday's main event in Washington, D.C. and "sibling marches" in American cities, protests were staged in many cities around the world-including Tokyo, Sydney, Geneva, and Mumbai-where supporters marched in solidarity with USA students.

Axelsson said she's been in contact with march organizers in Washington who tell her they are seeing the impact that worldwide attention is having on USA lawmakers.

As of mid-afternoon on the East Coast, when most of the marches were over, the National Rifle Association had yet to post a single tweet - about the marches or anything else.

Janai Tenor, one of the students traveling from Miami is demanding more attention from the public, "The media comes out for the things that are rare to happen and I feel that even goes to show that they know it's normal in our neighborhood, which it's why they don't bring it out every day".

And Kasky said that's inevitably what will get people out on the streets.

"I will not write another check unless they all support a ban on assault weapons", Hoffman wrote in an email, according to The New York Times.

Actor Liev Schrieber posted an Instagram video from his spot in the crowd, and Paul McCartney joined the protesters near The Dakota, the apartment building, where his Beatles bandmate John Lennon once lived.

"One of the aspects of anonymity is that you don't know where that resistance is going to come from", he said.

Demonstrators marched from Nathan Phillips Square to Queen's Park. The crowd was so large that it took more than an hour for the stragglers at the end of the line to get underway. "And I say that target shooting, while it is a sport, we've become the targets". If you do not stand with us by saying we need to pass common-sense gun legislation, you have chosen death.

People who couldn't make the trip are preparing to protest here in Chicago. And to everyone listening today, as we step into the future, let's make sure we're on the right side of history.

White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said the administration applauded "the many courageous young Americans" exercising their free-speech rights on Saturday.

The Department of Justice issued a ban on bump stocks Friday as a response to the gun-control groundswell.

"School is supposed to be a place for learning, a place for joy", Mary Lou Montalto, 73, grandmother of Parkland victim Gina Rosa Montalto, told The Post. "I want to return to that". It was that latest US school shooting-and these students want it to be the last.

"Vote them out! Vote them out!" the crowd chanted in response.

He said he hears about school shootings on the news and when there's a lockdown at his school, he tries not to worry. "What if my best friend doesn't come home?" They say the time to act and see changes is now - not after another attack.

About 30 gun-rights supporters staged a counter-demonstration in front of the Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in Washington, D.C., standing quietly with signs such as "Armed Victims Live Longer" and "Stop Violating Civil Rights".
