Time is now to address gun violence problem

The Woodland Hills Students Against Gun Violence put up posters throughout the halls of their high school

Mostly high school students from area schools and some UVA students will board buses to the nations capital to make their voices heard on the issue of gun violence. Because this this is not cutting it, he said, pointing at the white-domed Capitol.

On the other side of the debate, gun rights advocates cite constitutional guarantees of the right to bear arms. We must also institute universal background checks, ban bump stocks and high-capacity magazines, prevent straw purchases, close gun-show loopholes and institute no-buy lists for domestic abusers and suspected terrorists.

The bus of Excel students was one of many loaded with kids across the city, as bus after bus began the journey - from Mondawmin Mall and Patterson Park, Lake Clifton and Cherry Hill.

The accused gunman, 19-year-old former Marjory Stoneman student Nikolas Cruz, faces the death penalty if convicted on multiple murder charges.

"We were invited out by other survivors" of shootings in Virginia, Tucson and Aurora, Colorado, said Gooze, who will meet them for breakfast in D.C. on Saturday.

Biller told the crowd that the Fargo rally was all about supporting the young Americans who she said are leading the way on doing something about gun violence in the country. "It's under control. People hate us, but we have to do this". "This is a march against gun violence, and I am scared there will be gun violence on the march". 'As very bad as it sounds, this is the norm for us. Miami University junior De'Vante Montgomery called out Ohio Senator Rob Portman and Congressman Steve Chabot for accepting campaign contributions from the National Rifle Association. There will also be musical performances from Common, Miley Cyrus, Andra Day, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson.

Trainwreck star Amy Schumer is set to appear at the Los Angeles rally. The event is being funded by celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and George Clooney. I remember finding many flaws in our system, including a lack of funding for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

"We applaud the many courageous young Americans exercising their First Amendment rights today", White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said in the statement, in which she added that "keeping our children safe is a stop priority of the President's".

In Washington, a group of several dozen protesters in tactical gear and bearing a "Don't Tread on Me" flag stood by Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters, conversing with march demonstrators and enduring the occasional yell or middle finger.

Villalon continued, saying the demonstrators would no longer accept insubstantial reasons for not changing gun laws. "Remembering is hollow if we keep looking into the past".

Therefore, I want to make a change to ensure that this event will not happen again.
