  • American's March for their lives

At 7:55 a.m., 17-year-old Wyatt Rollins walked into the school hallway and shot his ex-girlfriend, Jaelynn Willey, in the head and another student in the leg. And I want all our lives to matter because we all deserve and have the right to be free from the recklessness of gun violence.

The students expressed hope that the momentum of the marches will carry forward into legislative reform. The shooting - the latest in a string of mass school shootings this year - inspired survivors to begin the #NeverAgain movement, the leaders of which helped plan the nationwide marches.

Their deaths were the reason she and a group of classmates from Western High School were among the more than 800,000 who rallied in the nation's capital on Saturday to demand more action to deal with gun violence.

Kalamazoo Central High School senior Reuben Glasser says when everyone who was touched by gun violence was asked to raise their hands at Saturday's "March For Our Lives" in Washington D.C.

Yalies joined hundreds of thousands of activists and students advocating for gun control reform at March for Our Lives events across the country on Saturday.

El Paso student protesters gathered downtown.

Participating were elected officials such as Haines City Vice Mayor Morris West, Lake Wales City Commissioner Curtis Gibson, and even Lake Wales' own honorable Mayor Eugene Fultz.

Vicford, however, was not the only one who thought "enough is enough".

The toll of dead and wounded was announced by security ministry spokesman Abdulaziz Hildhiban. A truck bombing in October killed 512 people in the country's deadliest-ever attack.

"Tweeting prayers for the victims does not constitute genuine concern", he said. It makes no sense to defy the reality that we all understand. "We can not have thoughts and prayers". But the easy availability of guns, especially semiautomatic weapons that are properly referred to as assault rifles, is driving the mayhem. If they are as afraid of losing your vote as they are of losing money from the gun lobby, you will win. They all died the same way. (DDIS) as reported by CBS News.

The poll was conducted between February 22-March 9, after the February 14 school shooting in Parkland, Fla., but before a series of student demonstrations against gun violence held on March 24. Therefore, the anger stemming from their environment has ignited a clear liberal motive of gun control that is set to inspire a larger vote.

Recently, Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 7026, also known as the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, enacting stricter gun measures including raising the minimum firearm purchasing age from 18 to 21 years old.

Our newspaper supports all these initiatives in addition to a ban on assault weapons.

In Laurinburg as a soft rain fell, a vigil was held to remember those who have lost their lives in mass shootings, starting Columbine and ending with a tribute to anyone in Scotland County who lost their lives due to gun violence.

Though the march addressed gun violence, including some speakers who tlked abut gun violence against African-American men and women, she said she felt as though certain forms of gun violence, such as police brutality, were overlooked by protesters because of class and race.

The nation has been completely paralyzed over gun violence for decades.

As students spoke about their fears that they might not survive to become adults, I was reminded that students in the 1950s and 1960s, including myself, experienced similar emotions. According to multiple reports, 17 school shootings have occurred since the beginning of 2018.
