Student survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed in last week's attack, have been vocal about the need to discuss gun control. That includes students from South Medford High School.

In some cases in South Florida, schools let their students out early to facilitate their right to protest. The event is being organized and led by students. "We are here for an education and not a political protest".

"We didn't want it to happen where students were jeopardizing their safety, (with) the staff not knowing where they were if they were going to walk out potentially", he said. "And hopefully, our gun control laws and school security rules will improve as a result".

Each student has a unique idea of what change may look like.

"I remained at the school for the remainder of the day to provide support and/or guidance", she said.

"I really think we should have more background checks and how are you gonna give an AR-15 to a 19-year-old?"

Students went back to class at the end of the 17-minute walkout. The Women's March's Youth EMPOWER group is planning a national school walkout on March 14, a month after the Florida shooting. Another national school walkout is in the works for April 20, the anniversary of the shooting at Columbine High School in 1999.

"We know there should be better school security and better regulation of guns", McGee said.

"BCPS encourages peaceful and lawful protest only".

But some students in Texas face suspension if they heed the call to action. Every generation has its issues it holds on to.

"Moments ago, I signed a memorandum directing the AG to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns", Trump said.

No one was disciplined for taking part in the protest.
