As members of Congress debate the issue of gun control, teenagers are walking out of class to protest against inaction.

The grassroots movement has been sweeping the country since the deadly Florida shooting two weeks ago, and individual states are now considering their own legislative changes.

It's not the government that grants us the right to own firearms & it's not the government's duty to protect you.

They walk out of classrooms so they are easier to shoot lol

Julian Coulden says:

A civilised country does not shoot its own kids. This is the 21st century. What in gods name do citizens need to carry firearms for? Kids can buy guns at 16 but can’t by alcohol till 21? What kind of county is the USA that it thinks this is okay? How many kids must die before common sense prevails? How many more parents must bury their kids killed by firearms? How many more families must be ripped apart before someone says, enough is enough? Trump is right. This stupidity and massacre has to stop. This shocking situation does not make USA great. It makes it look utterly disgusting in the eyes of the world. The kids are right. Their lives are worth more. Ultimately they will succeed.

how's it fell to be considered by the people whom founded this nation non American. that's right. "may your chains sit lightly upon you and posterity forget you were our countrymen"

Brazilian Lady says:

These brainwashed young people don't understand the big picture. The Constitution and the elections don't matter in the US anymore. The once free US is going full socialist. Guns are the last defense for the American people. Without the people in charge of the US no one knows who's going to take control of the US. The US will be a Soviet-style Orwellian monster in the world.

michael jackson says:

Fake false flag attacks to disarm the American people

Mark Green says:

According to Trumpanzees, George Soros is paying millions of students to protest against guns.

Lord Night says:

The young people are the key to the future. While rednecks roll in their couches and flop up to YouTube comments. Obviously more useless than getting up.
