"I know that the word has spread wide and far but I hope that we can even spread it even farther by that point because I know that that's going to be indescribable, but in such a positive way", she said.

"I am here to demand change from our government, because the lives lost, who shall not be lost in vain, shall then be used as a catalyst for change in our country today", Prado said. They may also increase funding for mental health programs and police officers assigned to schools and enact a waiting period for rifle purchases.

Protesters, student survivors face lawmakers and NRA in town hall meeting.

Rubio and Rep. Ted Deutch agreed. "We have to follow up on protocol and why are the states not complying with this law". "We will make change in this country and if not today, tomorrow".

Guttenberg called on the senator to do something about guns.

Students and parents put Rubio in the hot seat, asking him the majority of the questions.

Delhi Chief Secretary assault: Court rejects plea for MLAs' police custody
MLA Prakash Jarwal in connection with alleged assault on Delhi Chief Secretary at Chief Minister's residence. He also claimed he was roughed up.

The Clark County School District does not support local walk outs, a spokesperson said. He did not say whether he would turn down an NRA contribution. It has moved them to be more vocal about demanding action to prevent school shootings. He also told the crowd that it's not too soon to talk about gun law reform.

He said that if he believed an assault weapons ban "would have prevented this from happening, I would have supported it".

Teachers carrying a concealed gun could end attacks "very quickly", Mr Trump said.

Alyssa Goldfarb, a sophomore at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, and a survivor of the deadly February 14 shooting reveals why Trump's condolences 'mean nothing'. Parch said the administration at her school vowed to join students in similar demonstrations in the future. She said she has a group chat set up on her phone so she can immediately connect with her entire family in the event of massacre.

Needville High School junior Maddy Lambright said she and a few friends had planned to organize a 17-minutes walkout to honor the 17 victims of the mass shooting.

"Countries like Australia and England have great gun control laws, and they have no mass shootings", she said. "When children start acting like leaders and leaders start acting like children, that's how you know a change is coming", said a student at Blanche Ely High School. "Again, we don't want to lead this, because truly I think the most effective body in this work will be the young people themselves".

Meanwhile, on the sidewalk outside the White House, Sebens described the effects of school shootings on her generation.

Cases of measles have soared across Europe by 400pc
This represents a fourfold increase from the 2016 figure, which reached an annual record low of only 5,273 cases. When unvaccinated children contract measles it spreads to babies that aren't old enough to get their vaccines.

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter was one of the 17 people killed in the Parkland shooting, said it's time for action. According to the CDC, school-age children at the time were 40 times more likely to be killed outside school than at school. "And Mr. President, we'll fix it".

President Donald Trump held an emotional, hour-long meeting with students who survived the Florida shooting and a parent whose child did not.

None of the politicians at the town hall agreed with him.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida is giving fellow Sen.

Teddy bears, each representing a victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, sit on a wall at a sidewalk memorial in Newtown, Conn. Afterward, they gathered in a circle to discuss how they could push for stronger gun control. They warned politicians they'll vote out lawmakers who don't address school safety. Zero. We need to do something. Church leaders said a year ago that they hoped to tear down the Sutherland Springs, Tex., church where a gunman killed 26 people. They see the lack of adult leadership on gun control and are leading the charge. That informational vacuum made it hard for Americans far from Colorado to truly grasp what had just happened, to hear and see and feel the anguish those students were facing. My thoughts and prayers to those who have suffered such loss.

The rally came exactly a week after 17 students were killed when 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a former student, opened fire in the school.

Proposals to arm teachers to defend against school shooters have been floated in the Florida Legislature for years but always failed to gain enough GOP support to advance.
