They walked out of classes.

"Let's keep the guns out of the hands of the wrong people and keep them in the hands of the safe and the either you can join us or be on the side of history who prioritized their guns over the lives of others". They have the attention of millions.

Outraged by America's mass shootings and inspired by the survivors of the nation's latest massacre in Parkland, Fla., almost 200,000 protesters marched in New York City on Saturday to demand action on gun control.

Still, it won't be easy to blaze the trail.

Several players said that initially, even the sound of striking the ball was hard to hear. A lot will revolve around local efforts, keeping pressure on lawmakers and having a clear message moving forward.

"We couldn't do anything", she said.

Gonzalez is unwavering in her embrace of her identity While Univision reported that she does not speak Spanish, she doesn't shy away from her Cuban identity. Corin told USA TODAY they aren't "backing down". Children who marched said they were scared for one another. "This whole thing has taken off into a much bigger thing".

But the bill lacked any gun control measures.

Following this, massive protests were held by students across the U.S. to pressure the Trump administration for tougher gun measures.

He said back then getting support from either political party was hard, and the National Rifle Association was still the Goliath it is today. "If we move on, the NRA and those against us will win", Delaney Tarr said.

Aborn says the Parkland students are resilient and have grit, noting that the group has all the elements of a successful movement.

"What an inspiration they are", she said.

The silence by now had spread to the thousands thronging Pennsylvania Avenue.

"In a way I have to be that person", she said when describing why she feels the obligation to be a part of the 'March for our Lives'.

"From where I'm standing, it looks like a march to burn the Constitution and rewrite the parts that they don't like in crayon", Noir said. "No more silence, end gun violence", read one.

"Everyone can recognize themselves in these kids, and that is really crossing boundaries", Levinson said. "If we aren't too young to live in fear, then we're not too young to protest".

Briana Borres, also in Miami, told ABC News, "I'm here to march for all of those who have no voices left and we are here to support those who can't support themselves".

Actor Nick Offerman, participating in the Los Angeles march, showed off a t-shirt reading - "Don't be a dope, vote like a Knope", referencing his former Parks and Recreation colleague Amy Poehler's public-servant character in the show. She was then helped back to the podium by another organizer. The district, though, was rethinking the matter and could bring them back.

"The people demand a law banning the sale of assault weapons", Kasky said.

'We have to do all this lockdown drills [at school] because people have guns, ' she said.

"They should continue to play at their strengths and not try to be like the others before them", Bland said.
