She said she knows a student who was shot and once lived in a home where the presence of guns made her feel unsafe. "So that's one thing I advocate for". Even though their main focus has been on school shootings, they hope any changes they influence will affect more than just schools.

"I'm glad to see students practicing what we teach them, that there is a way to disagree professionally, that there is a way to have your voice heard", L&N STEM Principal Becky Ashe said.

"I think a lot of people here, they just don't want to be in school right now so they are just out here and don't really understand what they are talking about or what they are out here for", Haehl said.

"Work together. Talk together and solve the solutions we are meant to solve together", he said.
