Thousands teenager march in United States against gun violence

Participants gather during the March For Our Lives event Saturday

Demonstrators around the USA and world are gathering Saturday to protest gun violence at local versions of the March for Our Lives rally, which has drawn an enormous crowd of protesters to the nation's capital.

Singer Andra Day also performed at the March for Our Lives rally to support students across the country who are demanding that leaders take action to end gun violence in our schools and communities.

Hundreds of thousands turned out for the March for Our Lives rally at the foot of Capitol Hill, a gathering led by survivors of the February 14 attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., in which 17 people were killed.

"It's all about the children", Bonner said. "No parent should have to bury their child".

"We will continue to fight for our dead friends", Delaney Tarr, another survivor of the Florida tragedy, declared from the stage. It is up to you and I.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and is being held without bond.

Esme Rice, 16, was one of an estimated 30,000 demonstrators, many of them teens, who took place in Atlanta's March For Our Lives yesterday. But he says it's time for change.

"After Parkland happened, they walk into school fearing for their lives", she said. Davis, who boarded a bus to Washington at midnight, said she is protesting "to support other people who have lost people to gun violence". "The people demand universal background checks".

Their deaths have reignited public anger over mass shootings and sparked a groundswell of protest throughout the USA organized by some of the students who were at the school that day.

There are many great points that are being made by the youth of America and those that are standing alongside them in the quest for gun control. Deanna's cerebral palsy requires her to be in a wheelchair much of the time.

"We want to make sure that the good people are the ones who are able to carry the firearms", Schlapp said.

"I'm so proud of the grass-roots efforts that have grown from that and now here these students are taking it up". "That this should be a gun-free world". She emphasized that the issue is a "solvable problem".

"My friends and I might still be 11 and we might still be in elementary school, but we know". His family hunted and fished to survive. The NRA just helps protect the rights.

Humphrey, who was visiting Washington with his family for spring break, said he owns guns for target shooting and hunting and uses them responsibly. The National Rifle Association (NRA) often cites a single, 27-word sentence from the U.S. constitution, penned in 1791, guaranteeing Americans' rights to form civil militias.

Voter registration tents were set up at the college and Maui Arts & Cultural Center. The crowd size was largest at 1 p.m., the company said. KYUK brings you the voices of those marching in Bethel.

Rallying outside the New Hampshire Statehouse in Concord, 17-year-old Leeza Richter said: "Our government will do more to stop us from walking out than it will to stop a gunman from walking in". I recognized it as soon as each speaker came out to introduce the march. "I agree that it's time to start making changes".

"I'm really exhausted of being afraid at school", said Maya McEntyre, a 15-year-old high school freshman from Northville, Michigan, who joined a march by thousands in Detroit. Some hoped that gun laws will be re-evaluated in light of the nationwide movement. There should be more restrictions to getting guns, but they shouldn't be banned, he said, alluding to concerns among some gun owners that new laws could go too far. "School shootings can't become a normal occurrence like it is today". About 5,500 people were expected to attend the Concert for Our Lives.

Tears rolling down her face, she then stood in silence at the podium for a full four and half minutes as the crowd fidgeted and some cried out "We're with you Emma".
