"I'm concerned with all of these kids walking out", high school parent Heather Conkright said.

Across the nation, more than 2,000 walkouts are planned with the aim of calling attention to school safety and asking lawmakers to pass legislation that could prevent mass shootings.

After the killings of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on February 14, high school students around the country have rallied behind the #NeverAgain movement in an effort to force state and federal lawmakers to pass safer gun laws.

Students from Novi High School and Novi Middle School plan to participate in the walkout, and teachers have a plan.

Dover High juniors Parker Colby, 17, and Ryan Long, 16, do not plan to walk out.

"If the media stops saying gun control and instead of using the word gun control put in there school safety", he said, "it'll be an easy task for us to get together and make it happen".

While another student with the Twitter handle @car_nove said in a reply to Tomi Lahren: "I was hiding in a closet for two hours".

"The failure of Broward County Public Schools, and of the principal and school resource officer to adequately protect students, and in particular our client, from life-threatening harm were unreasonable, callous and negligent", Arreaza reportedly wrote.

"A student should not have to feel unsafe in any learning environment", said a survivor in a Never Again Facebook post.

Parent Kathi Kaier said she is concerned the district is setting a precedent for political protests that will disrupt the school day. "We're going to be heard", she said.

At Chanhassen High School, students are planning a walkout for about 30 minutes, starting at 10 a.m.to honor the 17 lives lost during the shooting, according to organizers.

She told reporters said she supported the idea to arm trained staff, but only if communities want it. "By supporting the organization, we keep it a safe event". The school later revised the policy the following day to allow students to bring backpacks, but to require them to be stored in lockers throughout the school day.

From that conversation, the National School Walkout was born.

De Blasio said he wants younger students to participate in the protest, but to remain in their school and gather for a memorial.

Although lawmakers are proposing language to prevent people showing signs of violence or mental illness from having guns, Scott's proposal would let relatives and roommates petition courts to bar potentially unsafe people from having guns; lawmakers' proposals would not.
