Several dozen students at Monticello High School walked out of class Wednesday afternoon to have their say about gun violence.

The Republican president, who was endorsed by the National Rifle Association gun lobby during the 2016 presidential campaign, was considering additional firearms restrictions after 17 people were killed in a shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school.

The students in NY and other states will echo their demands and others during the planned walkouts.

Others who went up to Tallahassee with Calderone have taken a harder line on guns.

Florida Gulf Coast University held a vigil Tuesday night for the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that happened last week.

Almost 100 students at a high school in Independence, Kentucky left school during their lunch period on Wednesday for speeches from their fellow students, though other student groups across the country have left school altogether to speak on the issue.

"Not one more life not one more school shooting.Parkland will be the last", said Piper Howard, Geneseo freshman.

"No longer can I walk the halls without hearing the gunshots".

About 100 students from the high school made the 400-mile trip on three buses. And in Washington, a small sign of movement on the gun violence front. "I mean, in business, that's what you have to do", Scott said.

And I think they're just surprised at how well-spoken some people are and how much action they're actually taking.

Instead, he said they were all advocating "small steps" to change the state of gun safety. This happened with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas in the room. "But nothing is going to come out of there that we haven't heard before or that's going to turn the president around".
