Kids unite on National School Walkout calling for tighter gun control

Students across the country 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 throughout the United States.

Over 3,000 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.
