Students Across The Country Demand Action On Gun Reform

Florida lawmakers refuse to debate assault rifles — but say porn is dangerous

Students in Florida and Maryland walked out of their schools en masse Wednesday to protest gun violence in what could be a preview of nationwide demonstrations planned for next month.

He added: "I can't feel comfortable in my country knowing that people have, will have, are ever going to feel like this".

"This is an election year", Stephen Colbert, host of "The Late Show", said during his opening monologue on Tuesday. "The critical thing is you have to be very sensitive and be just that - a listener, not a debater", he said.

Hundreds of high school students from Parkland were multiplied many times over, with several thousand people showing up on the front lawn of the old Capitol with their strongest message: to ban assault-style rifles. The lawmakers, mostly Republicans, rejected the motion by 36-71.

President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Rick Scott were offered the opportunity to participate in the town hall and take questions from the students and the Stoneman Douglas community by appearing live from Washington and Tallahassee, CNN said.

"The adults aren't cutting it anymore", he said.

Monday, students in Iowa City staged school walkouts and marched to the Pentacrest on the University of Iowa campus.

Corcoran said money is no object, but he managed expectations that it was unlikely the legislature would ban assault weapons.

"We can no longer pretend that gun control isn't an issue for education", Cohen said.

Graham went on to say that he wants to see tougher gun laws and found Wednesday's moment of silence inspirational.

Some Marjory Stoneman Douglas students, who had met with lawmakers earlier in the day, were in the public gallery watching while the move was rejected.

The President is opening the White House to survivors of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida for a "listening session".
