Students Take Aim At The GOP & NRA | National School Walkout PHOTOS
Students across the nation walked out of their schools to protest America's gun violence.
The walkouts, which lasted 17 minutes at most schools, were meant both to honor those killed by gun violence and to pressure lawmakers to pass gun control legislation.

I can think of few other times where ive been more proud of my students. Standing up for what they believe is right, and for the victims who no longer have a voice. #NationalSchoolWalkout #ParklandStrong #leonardodavincihighschool #17Minutes pic.twitter.com/UkE60ctrAJ— Jim.

Naomi is co-organizing a walkout at her elementary school with morning with Carter, who is also 11. "Some parents have felt that we're not old enough to know about it," Carter said. "Like they think because we're 5th graders we don't know anything about what's happening." pic.twitter.com/RSty6cH7VY— Lois Beckett (@loisbeckett) March 14, 2018

Tomorrow at 10:00am take a stand against our nation's rampant gun violence and walk out! At the flag pole, we will be remembering the 17 lives lost last month at Parkland and hearing speeches from students. After 17 minutes, we will walk back inside. Wear orange and bring signs! pic.twitter.com/GtQ5j4q0jz— M.O.S.T. (@rmhs_most) March 14, 2018
