Massive crowds at anti-gun rally in Florida

Organizers in Indianapolis will host a rally to protest school violence at the statehouse this weekend, and it coincides with a national march in Washington D.C. surrounding the same issue.

"I'm personally grateful not have had any first-hand experience with gun violence", said Haider, a Prospect High School student.

A little over a month after a school shooting killed 17 people at the Parkland high school, hopeful locals gathered on Saturday to demand change.

A GoFundMe page set up for the event has raised more than $3 million for the marches and victims of the Parkland, Florida, shooting and their families.

"There's been a lot of remberance in the past month, but we have to ask ourselves, 'Why do we keep remembering?'", said Allen Liu, a senior at the McCallie School and one of the leaders of Chattanooga Students Leading Change. "If there are any NRA people here, I challenge them to join us in getting rid of these weapons of war that were used in Afghanistan by our Marines and (have) no place, no place in society", she said.

Marchers will then proceed to the U.S. Embassy on Sussex Drive, Skelly said.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday announced a proposed rule to ban so-called bump stocks that allow semi-automatic guns to fire more rapidly, similar to a fully automatic weapon.

"We can't ignore the issues of gun control that this tragedy raises".

Dorantes told Crux that the Sunday after the Parkland shooting - which occurred on Ash Wednesday - he dedicated his homily to the subject of gun violence and the havoc it's wreaked on both the nation and his parish's own neighborhood.

"It's not about how you go down and what happens to you". During that period, more than 187,000 students attending at least 193 primary or secondary schools have experienced a shooting on campus during school hours, according to a Washington Post analysis. If there's an opportunity for my voice to be heard, to do something, I'm going to take that.

"We want to make sure that we bless and respect the fact that we are on Kumeyaay land", he said.

After a march through Downtown, the rally returned to City Hall for more speeches, including words from Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley, and Hamilton County Clerk of Courts and Ohio First District Congressional candidate Aftab Pureval.

According to recent survey data, numerous policy changes proposed by the Parkland students are broadly popular.

I was 14 years old on the day of the shooting - the same age as seven of the murdered students.

"I think it's a little ridiculous", Benjamin Johnson, 21, from NY, said of the March for Our Lives event.

Students last week staged nationwide walkouts from classrooms.
