Students Walkout Nationwide For Gun Control [VIDEO]

ABC News reports:

Students across the country and around the globe are coming together in a National School Walkout today in a call on Congress to pass tighter gun control laws. The ENOUGH National School Walkout is taking place exactly one month after the mass shooting at a Florida high school that killed 17 people and sent shock waves across the nation.

Over 3,100 walkout events are registered, according to event organizers. The walkouts are across the nation, from Maine to Maryland, from North Dakota to North Carolina, from the White House to Washington state, and even in Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Groups from around the world have also signed up, including in Australia, Israel, Switzerland, Germany and Mexico. The event began at 10 a.m. across every time zone and last 17 minutes — one minute for each of the victims gunned down in the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
