The students are planning a march next month in Washington, DC; they’re bussing down to Tallahassee to rally this week; they’ll also speak at a town hall with politicians, including Florida’s two senators. These kids are adamant on making a change for the better regarding gun control laws; they want to pass bills, and get a proper reaction from their elected officials.

This generation is capable of making an enormous impact on the world. The demand for change of gun control laws is very popular on twitter, every tweet is receiving abundant amounts of attention. If the kids come together to make a difference, they can, and they know they can.
