Student walkout was powerful, moving experience

Consider this: Kudos go not only to the students but also to those parents who gave their kids permission to protest violence and gun control in a peaceful manner.

When asked if the NRA has attempted to reach out to the student activists, Hogg said the only way they've been reaching out to them is by "basically threatening us".

"They've been instigating things", Ms. Gonzalez added. "And then, when we reply, they like shy back away". "It's fantastic that this is all student led; and it's really taken on an energy, and to see how many kids are here and the passion they have".

The pair didn't expand on what the NRA allegedly did to constitute a threat.

"I felt really sad", said Xiong of hearing about the Parkland shooting. I think they're responsible gun owners that want to become politically active and make their voices heard in this democracy, and I think that's an excellent thing. "The people at the top of the NRA are no longer working for the people that are in their organization". "I'm not going to pretend that this like opened my eyes to a cruel and harmful world".

The NRA has not yet responded to the students' criticism.

With more than half of the student body in attendance, it is easy to say that Nyack High School's participation in National School Walkout Day, on March 15, was a success. "But the fact that 3,000 people, essentially the equivalent of our entire school body, has died since the time of our shooting as result of gun violence is a testament to the serious issue that we have in this country".

Cruz, 18, "unlawfully entered the school grounds" around 4:50 p.m. on Monday, according to a report from the Broward County Sheriff's Office.
